Personal Description:

As well as being highly experienced, I am someone who brings both a genuine enthusiasm and depth of subject knowledge to the teaching of English; but just as importantly, a deeper understanding of the many factors that can impede learning in traditional classroom settings. In my role as an English teacher, I have been highly successful in forging strong and positive relationships with the classes and individuals I have worked with. I am a dynamic and creative person, who enjoys nurturing individuals to reach their goals. I have a deep love of learning which surfaces in every aspect of my life, from my teaching to my academic research; and I feel it is this enthusiasm, coupled with an empathy and regard for my students, which defines my approach to teaching and learning. I am also an ardent believer in taking learning outside of the classroom…

Tutoring Experience:

I completed my training at the Institute of Education in 2011, and was awarded qualified teacher status in 2012. Since then, I have enjoyed five successful years of classroom teaching in secondary, further and adult educational settings in the UK, (year groups 7 - 12, sixth form, and adult learners). Whilst I specialise in GCSE English Language and Literature, particularly AQA, Edexcel, OCR GCSE English Language, IGCSE (CIE First Language), and English at Key Stages 3 to 4, I also coach students who are planning to sit the eleven plus examinations. I can confidently say that, with team work and effort, all of my students have significantly improved their skills and have done better than the grades predicted for them at the start of term.

Added to this, I have an extensive and varied background in teaching English as a Foreign Language, both in the UK and Overseas, which enables me to teach a wide spectrum of learners of all ages, cultural backgrounds and abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

Fundamentally, my approach evolves in response to my students' specific needs. My lessons are built on a relationship of mutual trust and respect, which starts by motivating students to feel confident about their ideas and positive about the challenge of reaching the standard required. I believe parents have an integral role to play in this process. Success is a team effort and is achieved through a combination of perseverance, commitment, and an enthusiastic mindset. I know that students learn best when lessons are both engaging and tailored to reflect their individual needs and temperament. I am also highly experienced at adapting lessons to suit the needs of bilingual students.
