GCSE and A Level
Hello, my name is Mr Firth and I am a private tutor and teacher, based in Leeds (LS27).
I am an experienced Geography teacher, with a PGCE in Secondary School Teaching and a BA (Hons) degree in International Relations and Global Politics. I also have a keen interest in English and have an A level in this.
Prior to becoming a teacher, I have run my own company and feel I have great experience outside of the classroom and gives me great "people" skills, which are essential to tutoring.
Other work in education includes working with AQA as a GCSE examiner, which gives me great knowledge of what exam markers expect from students and working as a supply teacher, giving me a great insight of a large selection of schools.
Having spent nearly all of my life in Yorkshire, I am approachable, easy going and can relate to students within the region.
A typical 1st tutoring session with me would involve a welcome pack, which pinpoints knowledge gaps and a series of short quizzes across a selection of curriculum topics. Following this, I like my sessions to be based around the student's needs, with clear goals at the end. (Typical rate of £30 per hour).
