I've been a qualified teacher for over 10 years and have tutored for over 5 years. I began teaching in the Irish Education system, teaching English and History both in schools and for the Irish Education Department for 5 years. Following that, I moved to South Korea honing my ability to teach English as a second language to elementary and middle school children. I worked as a Head teacher and curriculum developer in an International school specializing in English Literature for 3 years when the opportunity arose. I moved to England and worked in Essex teaching English and History to GCSE and A-Level students for 3 years, whilst simultaneously tutoring, focusing on the 11+ Grammar school Entry exam, GCSE and A-Level examinations. At present, I focus exclusively on tutoring as one on one teaching offers more of a chance to help students develop.
