Teaching GCSE geography in a year

    I'm teaching GCSE geography for the first time. I've got an exceptionally keen Year 11 student who wants to pick up geography this year. I teach her for three hours a week. For context, it's a special school with all lessons delivered 1:1, in pairs, or very small groups. I don't want to overwhelm her, and I'm not sure it's achievable to cram two years of classes into one year like this, but I don't want to dampen her enthusiasm either. Has anyone had experience of teaching it in a year and what would you recommend?

    Go for it. If you are running tight on time teach part of papers or miss a paper, if they are keen there is no reason the couldn't achieve a pass grade
