Hi there! I'm Pip. I'm currently a secondary school Geography teacher at a school in Dorset, teaching KS3, GCSE and A Level. I'm originally from Northumberland, but have been living in Dorset since 2018. I am able to provide online support for students completing home learning set during the lockdown, or provide additional resources to support learning. I have experience coaching GCSE and A Level students in revision and exam technique, as well as supervising A Level independent investigations. I am also offering English and History tutoring for primary-age/KS3. I hope that the reduced rates I'm offering will allow students to access any additional help they need during this extended period of home schooling! Currently, I'm able to be pretty flexible with times and days to fit around your schedule, and may also be able to offer support with other subjects on request. I look forward to hearing from you; please feel free to send me a message for further information or to discuss.

What is your personal message to students?
Hi there! I'm Pip. I work as a secondary school Geography teacher and I'm really missing it at the minute as we all adjust to this new way of working. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, walking and running, and spending time with my friends and family. I also love cooking - and eating! - and reading. I'm really looking forward to meeting you!
