Tutoring Approach

I am an experienced professional teacher/tutor; approachable and patient, reliable and well prepared. Students require tutoring for a variety of reasons. This may be to help with particular literacy difficulties or to improve performance at examination level. I believe in providing opportunities for students to progress regardless of age and ability. I use a variety of teaching and learning strategies to develop the skills and confidence to encourage independent learning. I believe in both supporting and challenging students whilst providing them with a structured approach.
