Personal Description:

I am a relaxed and very enthusiastic teacher and always manage to develop a friendly rapport with students. I have been a journalist, have taught abroad and am a musician and a creative writer. I think my many interests make me approachable and add a dimension to my teaching that others might not have.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching for nearly 30 years. I have taught at university level but have also been a head of department in a top independent school. I have also tutored for many years and have helped many students to understand the subject and excel in it, often improving their grades considerably. I have also marked and still mark for several of the exam boards, so know precisely what skills need to be improved to attain the higher grades at GCSE and A level. I have taught students who are non-native speakers and have also taught across the age ranges from 6-60.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to find out what a student wants from lessons and am able to show them quickly, and with humour, how to gain in confidence and ability by the simple application of tried and tested methods. I work collaboratively with students, using my laptop and teaching materials to demonstrate the range of skills required, from creative to analytical. My own experience of journalism and creative writing mean I can help students not just with the academic but with the creative side of the subject. My long experience with exam boards means I can mark work quickly and accurately so students know where they are and what they need to do to improve.
