Personal Description:

Hi I'm a qualified teacher with an Honours Degree, PGCE and 8 years of teaching experience from primary to college age.I am a friendly and open minded person in my early thirties, with a good sense of humour. I am flexible in my approach to teaching, and can adapt to suit the different learning styles of every individual tutee. I am a hard working and organised person, with a great passion for teaching.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching GCSE English Langauge, Literature and Drama for over 8 years. I started my career as a College Lecturer, where I taught a variety of mainstream students, students with special educational needs and adult learners. I have extensive experience in teaching students with dyslexia, ASD, ADHD and multiple profound learning difficulties.
I am currently employed as a specialist teacher, teaching part time at a Junior school in Normandy. I have been a home tutor for the past 3 years. My main client base at the moment is at primary level, helping students to increase their confidence in literacy and numeracy.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient, encouraging and humanistic teacher, dedicated to helping students achieve their aim. I believe that learning should be enjoyable, and I hope to enhance the tutees learning experience by building a positive relationship. I am a dynamic teacher who is creative in my approach to teaching poetry, prose, essay writing, exam techniques and all that is essential to pass at GCSE. Above all, my aim is to instill confidence and create an environment where the tutee feels comfortable in expressing themselves, not worry about making mistakes, and enjoy learning. I have adopted the Read Write Inc programme to help students at primary level improve their reading and writing. I have a range of high quality resources that I use in all of my lessons. So far I have watched many of my students build in confidence, and go on to get great results. I can provide references on request.
