Hi, my name is Russ and I am a Secondary school English teacher. I began teaching in 2015 and have since taught a variety of texts across Key Stages 3 and 4 (Macbeth, Jekyll and Hyde, A Christmas Carol and many more). I have also trained as a marker for AQA on the English Language Paper 2 exam and so have extra experience in this syllabus.
Previously to this I have 9 years’ experience working in secondary schools as a Teaching assistant and an EAL assistant so have great experience working with SEN or EAL students too. I have also delivered masterclasses in poetry, fiction and playwriting, as well as facilitating preparation sessions for students participating in Debate Mate.
