Personal Description:

I am a natural teacher and educator. I am deeply dedicated to working with learners so that they realise their full potential. I work hard at helping them overcome obstacles to do this. I love language and literature, and the arts, particularly film. I am an avid reader, and watcher of films in English, Spanish and French. I am also a qualified Spanish and French translator.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over fifteen years’ teaching and tutoring experience. I have been a senior secondary school teacher, taking many students successfully through to complete their school leaving examinations, and getting excellent results. I have also taught English as a foreign language to teenagers and adults. I have tutored school learners and university students in all my subjects (English, Spanish and French) as well as study skills.I have had a lot of success with students with learning and behavioural difficulties.

Tutoring Approach:

I make sure that I understand the particular needs of the tutee. I believe that true learning takes place when there is a good relationship between the tutor and the tutee. I put a lot of effort into making sure that this happens. If I feel a tutee needs to build up his or her confidence, I am patient and gentle. I am also firm, when appropriate. I give tutees the space to express themselves, while ensuring that we don't deviate from the work that we have set out to do. I pitch my sessions carefully so that the tutee is supported and challenged at the same time. I believe that learning should be interesting and enjoyable.
