Tutoring Experience:

I am fully CRB checked and have references from previous students/ parents.

I have taught English as a foreign language in Spain, Peru and to overseas students visiting the UK.

One GCSE English Literature student went from a targeted C grade to obtaining an A in his exam after studying with me.

I have also taken part in in-class schemes to help pupils struggling with Maths, English and Science.

During summer I volunteer at a day care scheme for disabled children.

Tutoring Approach:

Varied approach depending on the student. A main aim is to build confidence, especially with younger children, so I often use sticker charts and reward schemes. I find flash cards and visual aids useful with younger students also.

With older students I like to give them more control over what they're learning, developing the idea of being responsible for one's own learning.

I have experience teaching English as a foreign language to large classes of adults, and this is something I thoroughly enjoyed. My approach here is again very student-led: just tell me what you want to get from our classes and we can figure out how to get there together.
