I am 37and I am a teacher of English.
I am absolutely committed to helping everyone become better at English. I believe that with a little bit of extra help and lots of hard work anyone can improve. I love tutoring because it allows me to focus on an individual and offer a personalised approach.
I am an experienced English teacher currently working as Head of English in a school in Hertfordshire. I have been teaching English for 12 years to pupils of various needs and ages at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. I have a wide range of experience preparing students for their GCSEs. I have a strong knowledge of various exam boards- I have prepared students for AQA, OCR and WJEC English language and literature GCSEs. I have a proven track record of success with my students making better than expected progress and exceeding national averages.
I am goal driven and focussed. I have a high rate of success in exam preparation because my approach focuses on dissecting and analysing exam papers thus teaching the student how they need to approach an exam paper. I believe in lots of exam practice, and use exam papers and mark schemes to show students what is required of them. I write exemplar responses (or obtain them from the exam board) to show the student what a target grade answer should look like.
