Tutoring Experience

My experience as a primary school teacher has given me a thorough understanding of the new National Curriculum in Key Stage One and Two.
I combine a professional knowledge of Phonics and SPaG teaching with a passion for storytelling and development of communication and language skills.
I have great experience teaching learners for whom English is an additional language, and my tutoring practice reflects this.

As a postgraduate student with a First class Bachelors degree from a Russell Group university, I am also confident in tutoring essay-based subjects at GCSE and A-level.
Depending on the needs of the learner, we would generally work on the skills of building and evaluating and argument, using sources and examples to illustrate a point, writing to a time or word limit, and pursuing new lines of enquiry on a subject. I also help students to develop good study and revision skills, and help them with organisation and motivation.

I recently completed 140 hours of teaching English as an Additional Language through conversation sessions and specially designed activities, at Angloville summer programs across Europe. I supported students of all ages to develop confidence and fluency when speaking English, and helped them to improve their listening and understanding skills.

Tutoring Approach

I know that going to a tutor after a long day of school is often the last thing that children and teenagers feel like doing, so I aim to make my sessions as engaging and stimulating as possible.

At primary school level, this means using games and interactive methods to help my tutees understand key concepts and apply them in new ways.

With older learners I use discussion, debate and visual mind-mapping techniques to help pupils feel confident and enthusiastic about the subject they are studying.
