Information About Finola - High Wycombe tutor - (16 reviews)
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 eleven 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 have all the relevant training required for an active member of faculty such as Child Welfare, First Aid, GDPR etc.
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.
Also, I love English (reading and analysing texts) and hope this affection becomes contagious!

Thank you for helping Anna with her GCSE preparation, you have made a huge difference to her understanding and more importantly her confidence with preparing for both English exams. Anna has told me she has really enjoyed her sessions and really liked your teaching style.
