Barbara

Bloomsbury Tutor

My name is Barbara Njau and I am an experienced teacher and private tutor for English Language and English Literature - at Primary School, Secondary School and A-Level. I am experienced in teaching students at all ability levels, including students with learning difficulties. My teaching style is fun and accessible and my students walk away with a renewed passion for English and high grades!

I achieved 11 A*s GCSE (including A* in English and French). I studied English Literature, English Language and French at A-Levels (awarded A in all subjects), and I studied Politics and English at Nottingham University, spending a year studying in France (Sciences Po, Paris Univeristy / Institut d'études Politiques de Paris). I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in teaching, meaning that I am a qualified teacher.

Tutoring Experience

I have six years’ experience in teaching and tutoring primary, secondary school and A-Level students English (KS1, KS2, GCSE, AS, and A-Level). I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) which means that I am a fully qualified teacher and I have worked extensively teaching in private schools.

I have prepared students for 11+ and 13+ entrance exams, GCSE exams, A-Level exams, and Oxbridge entry exams, and all of my students have achieved two grades above their predicted school marks when they have sat their examinations.

Tutoring Approach

During lessons - I teach students techniques on how to develop their written, reading skills and I go over their specific weaknesses in depth. I also prepare tailored revision worksheets, I make 'how to' videos tailored for specific texts, I give lots of homework and we set a revision timetable together, to ensure students get the most out of our lessons and they walk away having achieved clear targets!
