This is how 2 referees rated Finola:
I am currently teaching at an independent school in Amersham and have previously worked at a leading, independent boys school in Ealing. I have over ten years teaching experience within a class and as a tutor. My degree is in English, accredited from Queen Mary, University of London. I have a Masters in Education from Brunel and QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) - something that all teachers should and must have to provide lessons in a classroom.
I taught KS1 for five years, KS2 for six and tutored GCSE English for seven years. All my experience has been gained within the independent sector. As a tutor, I have experience teaching all key stages and adult learners. I have covered every aspect of English from SATs, CATs, GCSEs and A-Levels. Furthermore, I have written educational blogs and created questionnaires for online publications. I am a governor at a small state school and love helping children/teens/adults learn to love the English language (and achieve higher grades!)
I aim to make English more digestible by breaking it up into small sections and targets. I find that grammar often needs to be addressed and I like to approach this from an almost mathematical approach. When it comes to GCSE students I think practice papers are key as well as truly understanding the texts they need to explore.
