Tutoring Experience

Tutoring Approach

Passion. Passion for people to achieve and believe in themselves and see how great they can be when they are fully open to the learning experience. Passion for the subject and belief that English is so much more than an academic subject. Passion for seeing the achievement unfold before my eyes and a fellow human being recognising their achievements. With a bespoke style of delivery, and embedded transformational coaching into lessons you really can achieve so much more than you believe. Teenagers are in need of learning to manage their emotions to succeed in life. And that is what I teach them first and foremost. Only when a learner is confident, will they learn to the best of their ability. Exam technique; Love of the subject; Resilience for health and wellbeing; Consistent approach in delivery, has always been my approach to teaching and learning. A happy and engaged learner will always exceed even their own expectations and support them into A levels and beyond. Integrating Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques into lessons promotes learner ability to stay in a healthy mindset and open to learning with an improved confidence and ability to achieve.
What one student had to say that sums up my passion for teaching:
Our daughter is very strong on the Maths front and I think the quote from her 'Elizabeth has taught me the formula to answer the questions' says it all. The formula being to approach English with inquisitiveness and thrill rather than the robotic fashion in school. As a result she passed her re-take and we are very pleased.
