Personal Description:

PGDE-qualified English language and literature tutor, familiar with the exacting standards required of pupils at the National 4, 5, Higher and Advanced Higher levels. Available to assist pupils in their preparation for upcoming entrance exams.

I love literature and working with young people and am passionate about helping pupils to achieve their academic goals. In addition to secondary school tutoring I am available for proofreading and editing of dissertations.

I hold an MSc, MA(hons) English Literature and PGDE in Secondary English. Having undertaken postgraduate qualifications in both social and exercise sciences I have wide-ranging experience of adhering to the rigorous academic standards required at undergraduate and master's level.

In addition to my work as a tutor I currently work in communications.

Tutoring Experience:

I hold a PGDE in Secondary English teaching.

I have experience of both 1:1 and group teaching with experience of the SQA National 4, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher courses.

Additionally I have seven years of experience as an extracurricular theatre tutor including working for the Royal Lyceum Theatre and National Theatre of Scotland.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that, rather than simply providing an answer, it is more important to help a pupil develop the skills needed to tackle the problem. Developing strategies to approach problems and questions is more useful than learning by rote; therefore I help pupils to develop critical analysis skills that will benefit both their studies in English and their wider educational experiences.

Every tutee has different needs and priorities and as such my approach is pupil-centred and tailored to their individual needs. Getting to know my tutees, understanding their strengths and areas for development, and building confidence in their work are central to my approach.

I tutor from my home on Saturday mornings and travel to tutees on weekday evenings. When travelling to tutees exceeds 30 mins in either direction an additional charge of £5 applies.
