Personal Description:

I'm a 29-year-old full-time English tutor from Glasgow with experience in teaching secondary school pupils and adult learners.

I have been tutoring Higher and National 5 English four years (with a 100% pass rate), putting to use my 2:1 honours degree in English and Creative Writing and my Masters in Multimedia Journalism.

Through studying and from working as a journalist for three years I have developed a strong passion for the English language and how it is used. We can never read too much, with every text having the potential of creating new thoughts and ideas.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring for three years with a 100% pass rate and recently left my journalism job to make it a full-time career.

At university - both undergraduate and postgraduate - I worked as an editor on student newspapers where I helped train contributors in writing, providing full, in-depth feedback on all their work.

I also taught English as a foreign language to a class of 40 teenagers at a school in Malawi for two months in 2007.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor an individual work programme for each student, depending on their strengths, weaknesses and the work assigned to them by their teacher or lecturer. This ensures the time spent with me goes towards improving the areas they are having difficulty with.

I assign homework tasks and mark these with the students, giving full feedback, both verbal and written, to help them progress.

However, learning still has to be fun and I strive to make sure my students enjoy their sessions, which in turn increases their ability to remember what they have covered in lessons. I love English literature, and I hope to encourage others to love it too.
