Information About David - Motherwell tutor - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated David:
Teacher of English based in the Motherwell/Glasgow area. Honours degree in English with a PGDE at Masters credit level. I am looking to help support pupils get on top of their learning early on in the term. I am able to offer help with Drama, Media, Prose, Poetry, and RUAE (Close Reading).
I am also an experienced musician with over 15 years experience in writing, recording, and touring. I am able to offer lessons on both Guitar and Bass Guitar. I am also available for help with songwriting.
I teach from S1 - S6 with experience in National 4, 5, and, Higher English. Support is also available for Advanced Higher Students.
I like to let the student lead the learning. Whatever they want me to focus on with them, I will. With prelims fast approaching I would be keen to work on skills that will help students achieve their potential. Lessons can focus on RUAE, Textual Analysis of set texts, Creative Writing, or Critical Essay skills.
My first visit will normally be a chance for me to get to know the student (and vice-versa), while giving me the opportunity to assess any completed work. This also allows the student the opportunity to share with me, in detail, the targets they are looking to set and achieve.
I am happy for students to send me over work through the week for me to look over if required.
I am also more than happy to tutor any students of any age who feel like they need to improve their general English skills and abilities.

Comments: David has been working with my son for a few sessions now and has already made a huge impact on his understanding and confidence. David is really friendly and approachable and my son feels very comfortable with him. Extremely glad he agreed to tutor my son. I feel David's support will be invaluable in the run up to the prelims and then Nat 5. Would highly recommend him.
