Personal Description:

I am dedicated in achieving performance outcomes. Providing scaffolds and exemplars are efficient aids for students. They provide students with a familiarity of literary text types and concepts. I particularly focus on the process of giving students detailed feedback; research (see Professor John Hattie's meta-studies on this area) indicates that this is the most potent tool for student success. I ensure that I am up to date with the latest practices in pedagogy, which is invaluable especially with the 'roll in' of the National Curriculum in coming years. I engage student interest in the subject through my empathy and sincere desire to excel through innovation.

Tuition Experience:

I have taught the subject of English for some 30 years (Years 7 - 12 inclusive). My experience ranges from teaching in the Public sector, Catholic Schools, and most recently the Private sector. I am able to instil confidence and a sense of enjoyment into the learning process. Being flexible to accommodate a clientele with a wide range of attributes is essential. I have been a classroom teacher up until March 2013. During my career I have held the positions of Acting Head of History, Acting Head of English and Acting Coordinator of Year 8. Currently studying Master of Education (knowledge connectivity and innovation).

Tutoring Approach:

Schools are becoming more reliant on students using a pc in each class. I have a vast store of tools that can assist students in such situations. I also explain to students that tutoring is a partnership.Students need to realise that my purpose is not to do the work for them, but to enhance their skill levels to a point whereby they ultimately acquire the confidence to be self reliant. I am committed to excellence and can be relied upon when a student encounters difficulties in their subject area. A student needs to know that their tutor has the capacity to provide support when it is most needed.
