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 to achieve best results....

I have taught Art and Design In Further Education. I believe in drawing out a student's capabilities through encouragement and provision of information and lessons constructed to that end.

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...
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...

Masters: MSc Publishing (2014)
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...
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...

long learners. I am up to date with the different programs of study used in Scottish schools and have a wide range of personal resources which can I use to help cater for individual children's needs.I can provide learning opportunities matched to a child's level to help promote their confidence and encourage progression. I will also include both formative and summative assessments to ensure progression in learning. In addition I am also avaliable to provide...

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...

Bachelors: Psychology & Sociology (2015)
techniques I utilised, I help all my tutees positively change their relationship with learning and education. My tutoring is just as much about coaching- the last thing a student wants is another educator telling them what to do. I simply provide them with the tools to make dramatic changes and challenge them to apply these techniques themselves. Areas I specialise in include: - Fostering Positive Study Habits - Eliminating Distractions & Increasing Focus - Stress...
