Personal Description:

I offer one-to-one expert tuition in English. I can tutor years 5, 6 and 7 for entrance tests to grammar or independent schools and also offer support for KS1, KS2, KS3 English essential components in writing, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, comprehension and fluency in reading and writing. I am available for home-schooling students or adults. English is my passion and I hope to pass this on to my students. I love every aspect of it : reading, writing, composition, narratives, imaginative stories, plays and films. Personally I have the top grades in English 'O'level, 'A'level and a degree in English from a Russell Group university (Exeter). I also love teaching and get a real satisfaction from inspiring students and watching them progress. There is no greater moment than when the penny drops! I have just finished tutoring my son through Cambridge IGCSE English Literature and Language, June 2015 - success! B for language and A* for literature!

I am also available to teach English as a Foreign Language from beginner to advanced level in reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 6 years' teaching experience at a private school in Colchester, teaching English reading, listening, writing and speaking. I have taught a multitude of classes of all ages from beginner to advanced level with some success.
** News - Stop Press! Sebastian has just been offered a place at Ipswich Senior school after 3 months of one to one tutoring. Sebastian says he was moved up 3 sets in his English class after regular weekly tutoring sessions with me. Well done Sebastian.
** Summer News 2016 - Stop Press! - my IGCSE Language student, L, who was predicted an 'E' grade before she came to me has just achieved a 'B' grade for her English Language. Well done !!
** Similar story with student LF who has just achieved Grade C for Literature June 2016, previously predicted an 'E'.

Tutoring Approach:

I recognise each child as an individual with their own style of learning. My tutoring approach is to help them unlock the challenges of English in a variety of ways, tailor-made to each person enabling them to achieve their best result. This leads to an increased confidence, reflected in their school performance and homework. I will introduce and practise exam skills and techniques to prepare them for exams and tests. Your child may just need some extra support in this subject, which they may find difficult. Students will develop their vocabulary, reading and writing skills and learn to express, order and present ideas and information competently. Having my own 17 year old son at home, taking AS levels this summer, means I'm still involved with school life and syllabus demands. I've also taken a keen interest in his English tests and exams from an early age and know what is required in the curriculum. Learning with me will not be an easy ride, but I make it fun - not something to dread - and it becomes a a rewarding one, with the results to follow.
