About Me

Hi, I’m Johnette and I have a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and a post-graduate teaching qualification in Secondary Education. I have over ten years teaching experience in bilingual, state and international schools. I've been teaching KS2 - A levels History and Geography, Humanities and English as a Foreign Language in classroom and online settings (majority of my students are from China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, India, Middle East and Europe). I used to work in a secondary school in England and have a full DBS/ police check. I’m also a CIE History Assessment Specialist/ Assistant Examiner.

I'm offering tailored lessons to help you or your child learn History and/or Geography on all specifications (eg.

I can help you learn the content, give exam techniques or if you just want someone to chat with/ practice your oral English with! I'm available to mark exam papers for IGCSE- A levels History and Geography.

I have a proven track record including helping my students achieve the highest marks for Cambridge International Examinations IGCSE History in the whole of China (in June 2010 and June 2016 examinations).

I enjoy teaching students of different ability levels and cultural backgrounds and take pleasure in making the subject interesting for my students. When teaching, I aim to provide a stimulating and interactive learning environment. I plan my lessons with care to make sure that I've included appropriate activities and exercises for the students’ level by using a variety of teaching strategies and methods to support the engagement of all learners (including making provisions for students with learning difficulties by differentiating activities that are suitable for the different learning styles). I also like to help students achieve their full academic potential and get them inspired about the world around them.

Sarkis
Learn Armenian language, grammar, literature and history in Western Armenian.
Western Armenian is a language that has been put in the endangered language's list, and I personally believe that such a rich language should never die. I believe that I am taking a huge initiative to be one of the individuals who'll try to save this important language from disappearing. I try to make my lessons as interacting as possible. The lessons and exercises will be provided through PowerPoint presentations. I try to listen to my student in order to prepare the lesson plan together, according to his needs and preferences. I've always been the smiling and friendly tutor who makes the student comfortable during the lessons. I believe that in order to reach the students you need to understand them also emotionally and psychologically.

Manaal
Geography and Natural Sciences (1st and 2nd year)
My personal approach is to first master the theory sufficiently and then switch to exercises. Finally, I try to ask insight questions myself so that the student can not only reproduce, but also knows what to do with a difficult issue. I also have a Chromebook with a digital pen so that I can teach online very effectively.

Geography tutoring by a qualified teacher - GCSE, A Levels, Highers, Leaving certificate
Hello, I am a qualified geography and history teacher. I am qualified from Edinburgh University. I specialize in Geography from the ages of 7 to 18. I can prepare students for their exams and course work at IGCSE, A level (CIE, AQA and Edexcel all are fine), Irish Junior and leaving certificate and Scottish highers and National 4s and 5s. I can also help younger students develop their learning skills and subject knowledge. For exam driven students my classes will be prepared by finding out the areas of weakness before the class and working on them intensively each session. Students are encouraged to complete specific homework in timed conditions, outside of tutoring time, and return it to me for complementary corrections. After 8 years of outstanding results and students finding their paths to some of the best universities in the world, I am certainly the perfect tutor for finding a way to increase grade average and achieve perfection. For younger students, who are not taking exams, I develop excellent and engaging classes catered to their learning needs and interest. These will be fun but will cover core topics in geography and environmental science. In 4 schools, across the UK, USA and China, 80% of students have chosen to continue Geography as one of their main exam subjects when given the choice. Students who take this course should prepare themselves for the coldest, highest altitudes and the darkest most mysterious depths of the oceans as they take a journey to understand our planet and it's species.

Sophie
Higher and Standard Level History International Baccalaureate
History in the International Baccalaureate can be an incredibly demanding subject. It requires not only extensive knowledge of historical events, but also skilful strategy and excellent essay writing adeptness. I have designed my sessions to incorporate all three of these aspects by basing the teaching around your work and improvement. This allows me to personalise the lesson to work on the areas which are most helpful for you. I will teach you about essay writing specifically for the IB - the structure which gained me a level 7 in IB HL History when I graduated two years ago. I can also teach efficient revision techniques to retain not only the largest amount of education, but also the most important information.
