Information About Andrea - Reading tutor
This is how a referee rated Andrea:
I have a deep passion for English as a subject, which is why I have spent four years studying the subject at the University of Reading, firstly completing my undergraduate bachelors degree in History and English Literature, and then my Masters degree in English. I continue to fuel this passion by reading as much as possible. I also love being outdoors, particularly hiking and being able to enjoy nature to its fullest.
I have been working at Bright Young Things Tuition Academic Tuition Centre for the past eight months as initially a tutor and since March I have been managing the centre as the Centre Director. I have worked with students ranging from the ages 5 to 16, including a homeschooling student who I taught GCSE Year 11 English Literature and Language, and History. I have a strong knowledge of the school syllabuses and the recurring areas where many students struggle in English. I have also seen the importance of creating a rapport with each student and understanding how they best learn, which I will to continue to focus on even more with Private Tuition.
My approach to tutoring is primarily focused on building up a students confidence in regards to the subject that they are finding difficult. Creating a strong line of communication between myself and the student is of such importance as this is the best way for progress to be made. As each student will have individual areas they wish to focus on it is important to have the tuition tailored to the students‘ needs, be essay writing, analyses or creative writing. After the specific areas have been identified this will allow for a plan of action. In order to assess the impact of the tuition I will track their progress from week to week, providing constant feedback to both the student and the parents.
