~~*~*~**~*~

A tutor who has worked in schools, and who has coached students through to exam success. I teach English to Masters' level, but have built up experience coaching students successfully, through their 11, 12 and 13+ plus exams. In particular, these exams can be a source of tension because of their importance - I strive to make these as stress-free (and enjoyable!) as possible by instilling my students with the confidence to study and also to succeed, on their own.

I also work with students to support iGCSE, GCSE and A-Level English. Over the years, and with the ever-changing exam board specifications, I have needed to remain up-to-speed with expectations for the top grades, A and A*. (Please contact me with any specific area requirements for study, however: I can adapt lessons accordingly).

2012-2014 (summer): I worked with a student with SEN, teaching iGCSE English and maths higher. The student passed all his exams and got very respectable grades and I am really proud of him. Please ask for further details. I also worked with a speech processing disorder student and students with dyslexia and encourage in my teaching, certain strategies to help with (1) understanding - not just of the curriculum content, but also the parts that may have been missed out at school (2) lexis, grammar, or other as I recognise it, as it comes up in lessons or from school material.

I have experience working with SEN students including autism, and dyslexia.

Currently I am teaching in a private college for adults, ESOL, for English as a second language (with IELTS component). Although my degree is in the sciences, you cannot succeed in science without good English, and I have found my teaching move towards English naturally over the years.

My teaching methods mean that my students tend to make absolutely excellent progress.

Tutoring Approach:

Please see above and contact me for further information.

Cancellations: due to reasons in the past, I now ask students to please get in touch 2 days before the lesson if you need to cancel (holidays, commitments, other). For all same day cancellations I ask for the price of the lesson as this is my full-time job and the time slot, travel time, marking time and lesson planning once confirmed as yours, is yours. If this is not amenable, unfortunately we cannot work together.
