Personal Description:

I currently work at Spalding Grammar school as the Senior Teaching Assistant/2nd in charge. In addition, I am the Department specialist for English, as well as teaching English as a second language.
I have worked in education for 15 years, specialising in Special Needs/Dyslexia and English language. Two years ago I had the responsibility of teaching a Year 7 class with the aim of improving their grades.
I have a 2:3 Honours degree in English language from the Open University and have done a small amount of private tutoring for primary aged children.

Tutoring Experience:

I currently work with students across KS3 & 4 (although I work more closely with GCSE students), supporting in English lessons and teaching small groups of students who have been identified as requiring further support. I also lead two after school intervention sessions for Year 10 & 11 students, where the focus is on both English language and literature: looking at exam techniques, improving their writing skills, how to structure paragraphs, using compound and complex sentences and making detailed references to the text(s) in question.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in being friendly and approachable and getting to know the tutee and their needs. This enables the tutoring to be tailored to individual requirements at a pace that suits that particular person. Some tutees respond well to working through written questions in a methodical way, whereas others prefer a more verbal discussion first. Each tutee will require different results from their session and it is vital this is discussed at the first tutorial.
