I am a fully qualified English teacher and am available to tutor English language and literature up to and including university level. I am very interested in and enthusiastic about these subjects, yet I understand that not all students share this interest and can be somewhat apathetic. Thus, my teaching experience enables me to improve the grades of the engaged and disengaged learner alike.
I would describe myself as very well qualified - the university at which I studied for my undergraduate degree is ranked as 10th out of 114 in The Guardian university league tables and is in the Russell Group.
I have offered tutoring services in the past both to pupils that have been excluded from mainstream education and to those who just needed some extra support to boost their grades.
I have taught in a variey of state schools each with very different sets of students.
I presently teach English at Keystage 3, 4 and 5.
I am currently teaching at a large secondary school in Northampton.
I have (and am happy to do so now) proof-read dissertations/essays and provided copyediting and editorial services to students and professional organisations alike.
My approach to tutoring is predicated on the indivudual tutee in question. All tutees are different and will have varying learning needs. However, in general terms I would describe myself as:
