Mr Samuel W

I am a fully qualified, experienced Geography, History, and Science teacher based in Nantwich with SEN experience. My teaching methodology employs established cognitive science-based techniques, including starting lessons with recall tasks based on previously taught material. This is method is proven to enable learning to enter into long-term memory and not be forgotten as easily. I will then introduce new concepts slowly, frequently referring back to previous learning and real-world examples to aid understanding and build a conceptual schema in the student’s mind. I will ask numerous questions to check for understanding of the topic/concept before moving on. The student will then practise applying their new knowledge to exam questions, with my assistance via a carefully scaffolded framework of support. The ultimate goal is that a student is able to complete similar questions independently with the support framework removed and be able to recall the information at a later date.

SUBJECTS TAUGHT:
SEN, Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, History
Qualifications:
PGCE Liverpool John Moores University (2018). BSc (Hons) Environmental Politics (2:1), Open University.

Mrs Jane R

I am a qualified and experienced teacher of English, History, French, Latin, Classical Civilisation & Functional Skills, and also offer preparation for SATs, and 11+/13+ Common Entrance exams, including Latin where relevant. I have taught Adult Functional Skills for many years, alongside IGCSE English, GCSE English, History and French, and have also worked with dyslexic pupils (my own children are dyslexic too). Students benefit from my teaching, feeling relaxed and confident with each subject, ensuring success. AQA, OCR, Eduqas, Edexcel & City & Guilds, are the boards with which I have recent experience. Learning, I believe, can only take place where clearly communicated ideas are fully understood by the learner; this is where I feel my strengths lie. I specialise in exam technique, and honing study skills, to achieve well written answers, and have had great success with all my students, including those with health/anxiety/confidence/disability issues - their grades going up by 2-3 levels.

SUBJECTS TAUGHT:
English, History, French, Latin, 11+, English Language, English Literature, 13+, School Entrance Exams, Classical Civilisation, Common Entrance
Qualifications:
PGCE Crewe & Alsager College (1991). BA (Hons) Classical Studies, Ancient History & English, University of Leicester (1986).
