Private English Tutor in Taunton

I am a caring and friendly professional English tutor who recently moved from Surrey to Taunton. I specialise in tailoring my tuition to meet the individual goals and needs of every student I work with.

I offer great flexibility in my tutoring in that I can supplement school/college/university work or design an independent programme of study. Successful tutoring relies on the tutor being able to learn quickly how each student thinks and offer a flexible, patient and innovative approach that is adapted to suit the individual needs of each student. As your tutor you will see that I am able to provide all this and providing tutoring that is both challenging and enjoyable.

Tutoring Experience

I prefer to tutor in my own home as I have a fully-equipped study and, therefore, instant access to a wide range of teaching materials and texts but I can travel by arrangement. I can tutor during weekdays, evenings and weekends and during term time and holidays. I live just on the edge of Taunton in the village of Trull.

I have been teaching for over 12 years now and have taught students of all ages and in a variety of settings. I have worked in schools, further and higher education establishments and leading universities.

Tutoring Approach

Areas of tutoring which I offer include all aspects of reading and writing. Speaking and listening skills are also important to success in English language and literature lessons so if a tutee needs help with these aspects of their work we can work on them together. I cover the National Curriculum at Secondary level, can help with tutoring for the 11+, Common Entrance and Scholarship Exam preparation, English Literature and English Language IGCSE, GCSE and A level. I can offer support for Vocational Courses in the study of English Literature and support and tutoring for those studying English at university level: BA and MA. I also tutor mature adults returning to study for the purposes of gaining further qualifications and for those pursuing study for pleasure in Higher and Adult Education environments.
