Masters: Merit MA (Mediaeval Studies) (2007)
in areas of the autistic spectrum, anxiety issues and dyslexia. I am a friendly, calm and patient person. I listen to both the student and parent (where appropriate) to attempt to locate any problems and to plan an individual approach to the subject. Although each student is unique, there are a number of common issues that affect many students, and I have experience, and resources, dealing with them. I am also able to support students...

technique as well as supporting exam revision. This really depends on the student: I like to take stock as to how they're understanding or performing first and then build on their strengths as well as working on any weaknesses or areas they want/need to improve on. I consider myself adaptable and patient but also very enthusiastic about my subject areas and hope to communicate this to the tutee- especially if they've had any difficulty connecting...

Masters: MA Comparative Literature (2016)
yourself you were previously unaware of, opening yourself up to new ways of thinking, cultures and histories. Everyone can learn any language, as long as they care. Geography, History, Philosophy and Drama are always about empathising with another person or persons in their context, from their perspective. That is one of the reasons doing research on these topics is so engrossing: it is like getting to know someone intimately. I hope to communicate this fascination...

of teaching to each individual person. I think it is important that students understand the key concepts and ideas in each subject to a good degree of depth so they can apply their knowledge to exam situations. In addition to teaching a student the knowledge required for a subject I also heavily emphasise the learning skills required to maximise efficiency in learning. I am a big advocate of the growth mindset which is the belief...

and creative use of vocabulary. In teaching Maths, I explain clearly and believe in simply doing maths and repeating it until familiarity makes it seem easier. In teaching Economics, I work with students on knowing the syllabus, writing stylish essays and relating theory to the real world (which adds interest). In teaching French and German I work on correct pronunciation as the basis for listening as well as speaking skills and I promote a knowledge...

Adapting topics to suit a student's learning style is key. I am experienced with students with educational difficulties or confidence issues, identified or otherwise. I have also much experience with students who want to achieve more, having worked at every academic level and in creative writing....

degree exploring this area. 2010-2015: teaching Years 3-5 at Primary level as a class teacher. 2003-2010: teaching years 7-13 at Secondary level as a Drama and English teacher. I like to spend time assessing the child's interests, temperament and approaches to learning before tailoring my lessons to their specific needs. I try to find creative ways to engage children who have switched off to more conventional methods of teaching, pursuing visual and kinaesthetic approaches if...

and seen several students succeed into reaching Russell Group universities. My approach to tutoring is flexible, tailoring teaching methods to the needs and requirements of the individual student.

I am patient, and engage with students in...
