I am an experienced, qualified languages (French & Spanish) teacher based in a Manchester school. I have now branched out into teaching History, Geography and Psychology. I have an undergraduate degree in History and a masters degree in Psychology alongside my PGCE in French. I also have extensive experience of SEN. I currently work on an alternative pathways course that caters for children who are not accessing mainstream education. Therefore, parents seeking support for children with autism, dyslexia or behavioural difficulties, feel free to contact me for support. I am able to offer my subjects up to GCSE and I can also offer French to A-level. I am also experienced in secondary transition and would be happy to help year sixes as they make the transition to secondary, for a happier start in September. My passion is to instil a love for learning in others. I teach for a love of a subject but can also appreciate the need to gain excellent exam results, in an ever more competitive world.

Luke D

PGCE Primary Education, University of Exeter, St Lukes College (2012). BA (Hons) University of Chester (2008)

Member since 2019 Mr Luke D

Education professional with a background in Primary School teaching- eight years worth of experience working in Devon and Greater Manchester working across KS2 primarily- working as a classroom teacher, French specialist teacher, PPA teacher and Art specialist teacher. Moreover, I also supported groups of children with their 11+ examinations for entry to grammar school. I am a Fine Art, French and English Language specialist having both tutored these subjects to both children and adults. I have knowledge of the 11+ exams and have current active experience of tutoring English and Maths. I believe in a question led approach to tutoring where the student takes on an active role in their learning. Being a visual and kin-aesthetic ( learn by doing) learner myself, I believe that promoting subjects using a variety of methods is immersive and engaging. I am a firm believer that it doesn't matter how quickly or slowly a person makes progress as long as they are not encouraged to stop!
