Hi there! My name is Emma and I am the KS3-5 Geography tutor joining the SAT team.
I have qualified as a teacher and have many years experience of working in classrooms in high schools. Through my role as a Geography teacher, I have prepared many students for their GCSE and A-Levels in Geography, teaching the entire specification and exam preparation techniques. Alongside teaching, I am also an examiner for the AQA specification where I have marked the GCSE Geography papers. In terms of tuition, I have found that this opportunity allows me to offer detailed and experienced input on exam technique and exam skills that examiners are looking for when marking papers, something that I make sure all of my students understand.
Before qualifying as a teacher, I previously worked in the oil and gas industry - an experience I love to draw on within my teaching and tutorials, especially when learning about case studies. As well as using published materials such as previous exam papers, I make bespoke materials for students, so that they are able to develop their geographical skills and structured writing techniques.
I have worked with many students who have needed a confidence boost to get them over the line for GCSE and A-Level, or to gain the highest results for moving onto the next steps in education. My clear explanations can help students gain the results they desire, and understand how examiners mark.
With extensive experience of teaching students who are preparing for the 9-1 GCSE I am looking forward to working with you
