Durham
Bachelors: Classics BA (Hons) - 1st Class Degree (2017)
comfortable in asking questions, but at the same time confident in their abilities. The structure of sessions depends on a tutee's preferred learning method as everyone is an individual, so lessons are shaped around personal needs. Consequently, first sessions tend to focus on identifying the strengths and areas of development that a student has, and subsequent sessions build on this. I tend to set homework-style activities between sessions, often using email communication to keep on...

I've taught at a university, primary and secondary schools, a nursery and also provided private tutoring for adult beginner EFL learners and failing uni students in the UK and abroad. All of this means that whatever your level of learning and whatever your level of confidence, I can help you unlock your potential and gain the results you deserve.

Hannah

Durham
School: A level English (2015)
encouraging and motivating my crews. All these skills are useful for teaching. The important base level when learning Classics up till A level is vocabulary. Once you have that skill mastered then everything begins to fall into place. My tutoring therefore takes the form of small frequent tests in order to ensure that a tutee masters this skill. Alongside this I will also highlight the areas where a tutee struggles with grammar and help them...

Clare

Durham
Bachelors: Combined Honours in Arts (2016)
both an individual and group basis. I also privately tutor several students in EFL and singing. As a singing teacher I can offer a mixture of practical tuition and foundation music theory. My strengths are in building student confidence and assisting students in identifying and solving problems with the voice. When teaching languages I offer a mix of grammar and conversation practise, delivered in various styles modified to the individual pupil's needs, whether they learn...

School: English Literature A level - A (2016)
language. I am familiar with the process of learning and due to my A levels being largely self taught, I know effective methods of study and structure. My approach to teaching and learning surrounds an open minded and explorative thesis. This is based on development of knowledge and confidence in critical thinking skills. I am keen to hear the voice of the student and devise a plan which is specific to their needs. One style...

Durham
College: Extended Project (2016)
discussion at the weekly meetings. First and foremost, I am enthusiastic, passionate, and dedicated to ensuring each child benefits and progresses so they both excel in and enjoy English. I plan each lesson with the view of fulfilling the areas of the syllabus the pupil aims to achieve, or other specific targets they have, depending on their ability level. I ensure that I diagnose and address any specific difficulties they are experiencing in their studies...

Durham
Bachelors: 2:1 English Literature (2017)
their time to one pupil. Most importantly, I'm hoping my love of and enthusiasm for my subjects will inspire my tutees, a love that can only be gained through my years of experience. I think visual and interactive tasks are important, which means I'm a great fan of worksheets and activities that I will prepare before every lesson and tailor to the needs of the pupil. For pupils doing exams, I will source past papers...

Alice

Durham
School: GCSEs 10 A* including Mathematics, English and all Sciences (2013)
Entrance. Tutoring sessions will focus on the established syllabus, but will also incorporate background knowledge of the subject/any methods required. I am a firm believer that true understanding of a topic/subject comes when a wider knowledge of the surrounding subject area(s) is also grasped. Depending on the age of the student, sessions will also include challenges such as sudoku, at regular intervals, to increase the focus and attention of the student, and enable them to...
