Maidstone Tutor

I am an experienced personal tutor with great enthusiasm for my work with my students. I graduated from University College London with an Honours Degree in English and have been teaching since 2003. In conjunction with my teaching, I am a professional actor based in Maidstone, Kent and have a Masters Degree in Performance. I also have 'Above Standard' Qualifications in teaching English as a Foreign Language.

I have an outgoing, affable and patient personality and relish working closely with students. As you will see from my Feedback, I have an excellent rapport with my tutees, and many of my current students contacted me after personal recommendation from a previous client.

Tutoring Experience

I have been tutoring on a one-to-one basis for twelve years and have had very good success with all my tutees, who include English children and foreign adults. I have good experience of working with students who wish to excel in their work and also with those who are struggling and need extra help.

Previous to private tutoring, I taught English as a Foreign Language at Oxford House College, London, teaching a range of nationalities, age groups and abilities (from the most basic to the highly advanced). I, therefore, have a firm understanding of grammar and its practical application. I have also facilitated drama workshops.

Tutoring Approach

As an actor and experienced teacher, my approach to tutoring is hands-on, encouraging discussion in a tutorial instead of just rote, formulaic teaching. I believe students who enjoy their lessons learn more and therefore I endeavour to make study flexible and relaxed. My Masters focused on different methods of learning, so I understand that students study in very individual ways and I tailor my teaching methods accordingly.
