Chloë provides support and tuition to schools wishing to undertake fieldwork on the Isle of Wight. As an independent field studies tutor, she has experience of working with students of all key stages on day trips and residential courses in a variety of island locations.

Fieldwork design and delivery can be a highly stressful experience for teachers, especially those who are relatively new to the profession. Hiring a freelance field studies tutor can be an easy way to remove the stress and free up valuable planning time. Regardless of their background or ability, Chloë guides students through their fieldwork with care and a genuine desire to see them engage with the geography all around them. Students get a unique and memorable fieldtrip, while staff can relax knowing that their curriculum needs are being met with plenty of added academic value.


Once you have found a location (and accommodation if necessary) Chloë will do the rest – from the itinerary of each day to scaffolding the fieldwork to suit the intended curriculum outcomes. All resources and field equipment are supplied, along with free pre and post course materials for the classroom. Chloë provides teaching staff with comprehensive risk assessments for all aspects of the fieldwork.


Chloë also specialises in working with students who are home-schooled and, through one-to-one sessions, ensures that the specification requirements for GCSE and A Level Geography are met.


Contact Chloë to discuss your needs and for details of availability and pricing.

For island primary schools, half day sessions start from £4 a student with heavily discounted rates available for students receiving the Pupil Premium.

For mainland secondary schools, where programmes are individually tailor-made to your needs, a variable day rate is applied. 

"Thank you so much for the excellent fieldwork tuition provided last week for our Year 13 geographers conducting their NEA.  The knowledge and experience you held really is invaluable and far exceeds our experiences with field studies centres for numerous reasons including flexibility in planning, pre and after trip tuition provision and the sheer academic focus you provided.  The tuition is key and this is why we continue to visit... I am fully confident that our students now have all they need in order to excel in their course."
