English (Foreign Language)
I am a qualified English teacher of over fifteen years, with experience of teaching ages five to adult in English Language, English Literature, Drama, Media Studies, Basic Skills, 11+ examination preparation and English as a Foreign Language. I also have experience of working with young people with ASD, dyslexia and other additional needs. I live in the Taunton area of Somerset and am available to tutor between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Please note, due to preparing for a PHD, I am only taking on A-level teaching and adult learners at the moment.
I have a degree in English Language and Literature, meaning I am able to work with all areas of the new English curriculum. I also have a PGCE, and a Masters Degree in Creative Writing. I qualified as a teacher over fifteen years ago and have taught GCSE and A-Level, Basic Skills, 11+ tuition and English as a Foreign Language. I also have experience of working with young people with ASD, dyslexia and other additional needs. My teaching has taken place in schools both in the UK and Spain, and in the state and private sectors. I have tutored privately and for agencies. I have held positions as Second in Faculty and Head of Department.
My approach is very much centred around the tutee. I like to make sessions fun and engaging and will combine teaching methods and approaches to best suit the individual's needs. I have a good understanding of the different ways in which people learn, and will tailor my sessions to best suit the tutee so as they learn and progress as well as they can. My expectations of myself are high and I aim to do the very best I can for my students, and hope they will achieve their very best with my support.
