    Maximising Potential GCSE Maths Tutor (Hull) Picture Working towards a prosperous future In 1987 I qualified as a teacher and started my career in an inner city school in Hull, East Yorkshire.  My specialist subject during my PGCE was Special Educational Needs and I often found it frustrating that there appeared to be little opportunity to support those individual children in my class...

  • Oxbridge Interviews: Myth and Reality Editor's Pick

    J Kelly University Entrance Coaching (West London) Picture In the public imagination, the Oxbridge interview has gained almost mythical status.
