English (Foreign Language)
Hi, I'm Fliss, and I'm a fully qualified English teacher with nearly twenty years teaching experience. I am familiar with the requirements of both the AQA and Eduqas GCSE exam and I also teach A Level and some undergraduate English. I enjoy reading and writing and I also love the great outdoors. I have managed to combine these interests by taking myself off on hiking holidays following in the footsteps of romantic poets such as Samuel Taylor Coleridge. During term time, I get a regular dose of nature as a volunteer for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust's Forest School in Swanwick. I love new ideas, knowledge, all animals, science-fiction, sunshine and travelling.
I am an experienced and fully qualified English teacher with an excellent results record. I have taught privately for the last eight years and have had many successes, including several GCSE students improving from a grade 3 to a grade 6 in under a year. My successes, last year, include two students achieving a grade 6 despite having fairly significant dyslexia, a KS3 student who received an end of year award for improvement in English, and an A' level student who took both AS and A2 in the same year and achieved a grade B in English Language & Literature. I also have experience of teaching English as a foreign language and am able to tutor students up to IELTS academic standard.
I am patient, supportive, approachable and believe strongly in the value of a good rapport between tutor and tutee. I am very good at quickly identifying specific weaknesses and areas for improvement which, in conjunction with an in-depth knowledge of the KS3, KS4 and KS5 syllabi, often produces significant and rapid improvement. I believe very strongly that teaching and learning should be creative and active and not be about the passive absorption of facts. I take a keen interest in current educational ideas and the processes of the mind, and endeavour to incorporate an understanding of how we learn into everything I do.
