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 to achieve best results. I...

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...

Masters: Études françaises (1999)
I believe in a learner-centered approach, which allows students to play an active role in the learning process. Everyone learns a little differently, so I try to understand a learner's particular style in order to to tailor lessons and activities to that student's needs. It is important to develop and work towards specific goals, but also to leave room for creativity and imagination. My objective is to give students the tools and strategies they need...

also been tutoring privately since January 2012, which I have greatly enjoyed. I believe that all students need to be tutored differently, in a manner best suited to their way of learning. I am very friendly and approachable, and would encourage the student to ask me questions to aid in their education. I would also be available to answer questions out of hours if required. If necessary, I am also willing to drive to areas...

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 student's...

personal style. Frequently, students suffer from overload, poor organisation or simply can't differentiate between the vital and the trivial when bombarded with work. Some visual learners need assistance in creating revision styles while some students who listen well yet can't record information coherently require help in assembling facts/figures from what they hear. In general, I have had huge success with individual tutoring over the years in many subject areas simply because I take the trouble...
