Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified English teacher with a passion for stories in almost any genre, in almost any form. I have nearly twenty years teaching experience and have taught in secondary, further and higher education establishments. This year, my students and I have done battle with the new GCSE 1-9 grading system, and come out smiling. I enjoy reading and writing and going to the theatre. I also love the great outdoors, and volunteer at the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust's Forest School in Swanwick. I love new ideas, knowledge, all animals, science-fiction, applause, sunshine and travelling.

Tutoring Experience:

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 E to a B in under a year. My successes include two students achieving B grades despite having fairly significant dyslexia, a KS3 student who received an end of year award for improvement in English, a home schooled student who achieved a grade A in his IGCSE, 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 English standard.

Tutoring Approach:

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.
