Personal Description:

I am a qualified and practising teacher living in the Cardiff area. I studied English Literature at Cardiff University but also completed modules in linguistics and in philosophy. Education is a passion of mine and I pass this love of learning onto my students. But I am always approachable, always find time to have a laugh and even enjoy some banter about my beloved Ospreys rugby team.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught students of all ages, from ages sixteen to sixty two. Whether it be GCSE, study skills, one-to-one support, Basic Skills, Access or Entry Level literacy, I have helped students achieve what they want by means of intelligent and enthusiastic teaching methods. I have taught an intensive, one-year GCSE English course for the past four years to diverse groups of students from a whole range of backgrounds; some of my students have increased their performance by up to three grades from their previous attempts.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student is different and every student learns in a diferent way. Similarly, every student needs tutoring for different reasons: exam resits, exam preparation, grade boosting, improving skills for work, improving memory for everyday life, preparation for university, etc. The list is long but these are all things that I have catered for in my tuition. I have a supply of varied resources that help make subjects enjoyable and accessible. I have found that many students simply need some help with their study skills so that they learn to 'teach themselves', thereby boosting their confidence, raising their ability, and saving both their time and money.
