Personal Description:

I'm an incredibly enthusiastic individual who wants to help people realise their potential and to share my love for studying and (specifically) studying English.

I left school with 12 GCSEs including double A* in English. I left college with 4 A-Levels and two additional AS-Levels. I initially went to University to study History, but transferred to English as it has always been my passion.

I would consider myself to be a well-rounded individual. I enjoy film, theatre and music, as well as travelling and writing fiction. I aspire to have a career in Academia and lecturing. I have been attending academic conferences since 2010 and presenting my work at them since 2011. I am often complimented on my passion for my subject, and I love to pass that on to my students.

My previous job in the University library (in Hull) along with my experience at the Study Advice Service has given me a wealth of experience with International students, and helping those students in particular with their English skills.

Tutoring Experience:

Whilst at University I have been a volunteer mentor to younger students and also volunteered for the Study Advice Service; a free service for all students which offers free advice on all aspects of studying, from writing essays to time management and examination tips.

I benefited from having tutors myself for a number of years.

I have been tutoring privately for a good four years and have experience of working in two local schools on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

Everyone is different and so everyone learns in different ways. The key is to establish the best way for the individual to take in and retain information, and build a personal programme from there. You can't force people to learn, and you need to work in a way which appeals to them or you simply won't get any where!

I believe in teaching in a firm manner, but building a friendly relationship with a student is also crucial. I think studying is great fun when you're doing it right, and that's a principle I arrange my tutoring around.

My first lesson is always based around getting to know my student, getting to know their aims and, most importantly, their weaknesses. I can then go away and begin structuring future lessons which are designed to work towards their end goal, whilst focusing on their specific weaknesses. I like to work in tandem with any work studied at school/college, but make sure I don't tread on any toes.
