Masters: MEd (lifelong learning) (2002)
day. I believe that knowledge and learning must also be complimented by competent examination techniques to ensure the learner achieves their full potential and best grade possible. At University Level I have tutored a 2nd year undergraduate who required help with critical essays and reports. Essay structures were being reviewed as well as correct referencing methods ie Harvard Referencing System. This support is available regardless of discipline as I can offer a general essay structure...

at Higher and will not accept 'C' passes. In my experience most pupils fail English or perform poorly due to a lack of vocabulary. They fail to understand that how they express themselves (vocabulary and punctuation) can account for 20% of their mark in their close reading, folios and critical essays. Additionally, as every child is an individual they struggle with different aspects of the curriculum. Hence, my lessons are tailored to accommodate each student's...
to consolidate previous learning. These sessions also work to prevent the 'Learning dip' that often occurs during longer school breaks. I may be able to travel for these sessions, depending on the location, although there would be an additional cost involved. Please note the rate quoted is per session, which is usually 55 minutes (to allow for 5 minutes feedback to parents/carers at the end of the session). Sessions for younger children will generally be...


PGCE: Passed (2005)
One of the most important aspects of tutoring is building confidence by showing tutees they can accomplish what they sometimes think they cannot. I am confident, patient and encouraging as I take a tutee methodically through the qualification they hope to achieve. We focus on what they consider weaknesses or what has shown itself as a weakness in classroom work or prelim results. We are able to work through these, build confidence and increase understanding...

beyond brief in English to help' – Parent ‘(Student) returned after each session saying that he was learning more with one to one than he was in the class… he felt at ease with you, which for a teenage boy tells a good story' - Parent ‘Jess's teaching was of a very high standard. She was incredibly effective not just in increasing (student's) awareness of the set texts that he was studying and the required...
a passion for helping children, young people and adults to understand and appreciate the wonderful intricacies of the English language and its literature. I enjoy working on a one-to-one basis; working out the best approach for the individual student; keeping closely to the demands of the school curriculum where necessary and always led by what the student wants/needs. I have recently been working with adult non-native speakers, both informally (conversational, day-to--day English) and more formally...
focus closely on core techniques which are essential, but often overlooked in primary and secondary education: spelling, grammar, vocabulary and close reading skills. I have worked in residential schools to help raise literacy by instilling a positive attitude towards the learning of English, and in school, I have worked with pupils from the very gifted to children who need more support to overcome social and emotional barriers to their learning. I am a very intuitive...


PGCE: PGDE (Secondary) English (2007)
parent of two grown-up children, as well as a teacher, I am well aware of the pressures experienced by young people today. I provide a comfortable, relaxed environment and work with my students on areas in which they feel they need extra support. I have built up a substantial bank of resources, which, in addition to Past Papers, forms the basis of the work we do. Opportunities to succeed are crucial to helping a student...

Masters: MSc Publishing (2014)
to improve my students' essay writing skills, I firstly develop their understanding of the text, providing analysis and helping them to understand the topic and themes more clearly. Then I help them to pick out the most important quotes, therefore simplifying the learning process. Finally, I teach my pupils how to use mind maps, and plan their essay. The planning stage is key, as it helps to develop structure when writing the essay, engages the...


PGCE: Post Graduate Diploma of Education (2006)

What is absolutely essential for all children, is that learning must be fun, engaging and challenging. My tutoring sessions will be tailored to your child's personal learning plan, which will be developed jointly with myself, you the parent and the children themselves. It is essential that your child is fully involved in creating their own...
