grammar components of the English curriculum, which may be useful if you are moving form the Scottish to English system. I have also worked in a tuition centre in Edinburgh so I am familiar with 'tried and tested' methods and resources that lead to success as well as recognising that 1-2-1 individually tailored lessons are far more effective in progressing children's confidence and learning than a mixed age group computer-based 'lesson'. I also have a...

Doctorate: English Literature (2018)
students prepare for university applications and with academic writing in a range of disciplines including economics, social work, psychology, geography, nursing and illustration. My approach to tutoring is to foster engagement and enjoyment of the subject, whilst keeping a close focus on the school or university syllabus. I always tailor sessions towards the areas in which each individual requires support, and I enjoy designing projects in collaboration with students to match their interests. One-to-one support...
