enjoy language, novels, poetry and plays. I aim to help all students set themselves ambitious but realistic goals, whether that is to read aloud confidently, pass GCSE English or get an A* in A level English Literature, and then to meet those goals and go on to face new challenges with positivity and determination.

My role is to help you meet your needs, whether that is sitting exams for GCSE and A-Level students or improving conversational English for non-native speakers.

As an experienced teacher, I am very familiar with how schools operate and assess children and I use the same systems for assessment as they do in school so I understand where your child's understanding is and the steps needed to ensure they progress.

to find the correct one to suit each individual. If something doesn't work, we just find an alternative route. I find communicating with younger children very easy and seem to be able to form relationships fairly quickly. I thoroughly enjoy watching the progress being made as a child develops educationally and socially. I start with a new tutee with a fairly comprehensive assessment to ensure I fully understand the needs of the child. Every child...
