About me

I believe that the best way to learn is through engaging lessons with an enthusiastic teacher. I am very passionate about my subjects, which means I am willing to go the extra mile when teaching them!

I have previous experience tutoring, which has allowed me to develop excellent communication and organisation skills. I tutored AS geography last year and the student achieved an A in her summer exams. My experience also means I am very familiar with common problems students have, such as exam technique and I know how to tackle particularly hard topics. I understand that everyone has different preferred ways of learning so I will adapt and change sessions so every student receives the best method of learning for them.

Availability: Weekdays 5-8pm, Weekends 1-8pm

Questions Joanna has answered

What are the differences between warm and cold based glaciers?

Cold based glaciers:

Are frozen to the bedrock all year round as the temperature of the ice stays at zero degrees constantly

Tend to move via internal deformation as there is no water for basal sliding to occur

Move slowly- causing less erosion to occur

Found at high latitudes

Examples of cold-based glaciers are the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets


Warm based glaciers 

Are not frozen to the bedrock all year round

The temperature of these glaciers is not constantly below freezing so water exists within the ice

The water acts as a lubricant so basal sliding can occur

As basal sliding can occur, warm based glaciers have a faster rate of movement than cold based glaciers and so carry out more erosion

Warm based glaciers tend to be found at lower latitudes

Examples include glaciers found in mountain ranges such as the Alps

Cold based glaciers:

Are frozen to the bedrock all year round as the temperature of the ice stays at zero degrees constantly

Tend to move via internal deformation as there is no water for basal sliding to occur

Move slowly- causing less erosion to occur

Found at high latitudes

Examples of cold-based glaciers are the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets


Warm based glaciers 

Are not frozen to the bedrock all year round

The temperature of these glaciers is not constantly below freezing so water exists within the ice

The water acts as a lubricant so basal sliding can occur

As basal sliding can occur, warm based glaciers have a faster rate of movement than cold based glaciers and so carry out more erosion

Warm based glaciers tend to be found at lower latitudes

Examples include glaciers found in mountain ranges such as the Alps
