English Teacher in Edinburgh

PGDE-qualified English language and literature tutor, familiar with the exacting standards required of pupils at the Nationals, Higher and Advanced Higher levels.

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 school tutoring I have supported both undergraduate and doctorate students to develop their writing style, as well as proofreading and editing dissertations.

I love literature and am passionate about helping tutees achieve their academic goals.

Tutoring Experience

I hold a PGDE in Secondary English teaching.

I have experience of both 1:1 and group tutoring as well as classroom teaching. I have tutored pupils towards all levels of school English examinations and have supported university students to develop their writing craft and hone their final theses.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that, rather than simply providing an answer, it is more important to help a tutee develop the skills necessary 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 tailored to individuals' needs. It's important that tutees feel comfortable working with me in order to reach their potential and so I work to get to know my tutees, their strengths, academic goals and areas for development, while developing their confidence.
