I am a full-time educator with over six years of experience. I am an English Literature graduate (BA) of the University of Aberystwyth where I especially enjoyed papers in Anglo-Saxon, Medieval, female empowerment and Viking Sagas. Following on from University I gained my PGCE with the University of Chester via the School Direct programme, beating 200 other applicants for one of the 20 places available. I was exposed to the latest in education theory and pedagogical techniques during the revamp of the National Curriculum. I then completed the prestigious MRes and PhD with Swansea University in the highly acclaimed Medieval Literature department only accepts proposals from two students every three years. Qualified and experienced English Literature, English Language, History and RS KS3-A-level tutor experienced across all Exam Boards. Graded Outstanding twice. As an adoptive parent, I have significant experience with LAC and PLAC children, those with learning difficulties and mental health issues. This has enabled me to tailor teaching and learning to suit the individual and spot the root cause of their issue quickly. Supports homeschooling and have my own classroom.
Away from education, my main interests include CrossFit, tennis, swimming, singing and my research.

Tutoring Experience

Qualified and experienced English Literature, English Language, History and RS KS3-A-level tutor experienced across all Exam Boards. Graded Outstanding twice. As an adoptive parent, I have significant experience with LAC and PLAC children, those with learning difficulties and mental health issues. This has enabled me to tailor teaching and learning to suit the individual and spot the root cause of their issue quickly. Supports homeschooling and have my own classroom. PhD Medieval Literature (2019), Diploma in Therapeutic Parenting (2017), PGCE Secondary Education with QTS, Chester University (2014). BA (Hons) English Literature, Aberystwyth University (2012).

In my capacity as head of English at Lifetime Training, I am in a unique position to offer advice and guidance to parents and pupils regarding finding the right school, college and university course. Moreover, I tutor and consult for six other tutoring firms, in addition to First Tutors. This has allowed me to gain much experience of the 'virtual learning environment' (Skype tuition, Scribblar etc.), over 3,000 hours to be exact. This learning style encourages students to develop their communicative skills, as they must defend their solutions verbally, rather than rely on the tutor to infer from their writing.

I have just completed building my in-house classroom, specifically designed for my students for a comfortable learning environment. Within it, all students have access to numerous learning resources during our lesson.#/k#

Tutoring Approach

It is my belief that the most important quality a tutor must possess is an appreciation of the individual requirements, needs and aptitudes of each of their pupils. Furthermore, I ensure that I identify and develop the natural learning style of each of my students, enabling them to achieve their intellectual potential. This is supported by marking of past papers, notes on exam strategy, and the regular setting of homework. Additionally, I submit a comprehensive written report to both student and parents after each session and encourage my clients to contact me out of hours if they have any questions or concerns.

Moreover, I understand what it is like to be young and want to make the most of your educational opportunities. From fourteen, I used my school holidays to gain experience in different industries such as law, film, editorial and journalism which have shaped me into the adaptable and confident person I am today. Professionalism and reliability are the backbone of my service.

Online Experience-
My years tutoring has allowed me to gain much experience of the 'virtual learning environment' (Skype tuition, Scribblar etc.), over 3,000 hours to be exact. This learning style encourages students to develop their communicative skills, as they must defend their solutions verbally, rather than rely on the tutor to infer from their writing.
I have been tutoring online and in person for 5 years and there is a massive difference in techniques for both. I understand how to adapt each lesson to ensure you get the most of our time together and most for your money.
