Hello, I'm Gemma. I'm a 25 year old English female and a qualified teacher. I studied for my first degree in Physical Geography at Aberystwyth University and was awarded a Price Davies Scholarship in 2009 specialising in Human Geography and Physical Geography. I then went on to study for my Post Graduate Certificate in Education at Cardiff University and am proud to be a qualified teacher in Physical Geography, Geology and Urban Geography. My degrees gave great opportunity to travel the world and experience first hand the immense forces at work that create our planet, as well as observe how we interact with the natural environment. This practical experience has driven me to conduct inclusive lessons with a key focus on hands-on learning and modern pedagogic techniques. I also strive to accomodate e-learning as much as possible, using online courses, games, videos and songs to make learning memorable and fun.
As a tutor I believe 2-3 hours homework support a week can make all the difference between a low grade and a high grade whilst also boosting your confidence. Making learning fun has been the most important thing because enjoying what you do and what you are learning encourages you to keep coming back, to keep moving forward with your learning and excelling at your subject. I offer mature, one-to-one sessions with a friendly, open approach to learning. I can teach Secondary, GCSE, AS and A Level and Higher Education and will provide material that is suitable for you and is compliant with your syllabus. I am proficient with WJEC, AQA and OCR.
