Private English and Drama Tuition in Donaghadee

I am a recently qualified English teacher and English and Drama graduate. Due to the shortage of teaching vacancies available in the province I am offering my services for private tutoring for children looking for help in English and Drama at Primary, GCSE, AS and A-Level.

Due to my recent teaching qualification I have a good understanding of the kinds of things children are learning in school both at KS3 and further on. I am approachable, calm and patient and like to get to know children and their personalities. I would also work hard to ensure that they will achieve their best potential by tutoring in a calm, comfortable and secure atmosphere where they will hopefully thrive.

Tutoring Experience

I recently qualified as a teacher in July 2015 and hold a PGCE in English from Queen's University. I have left school in the last five years so I continue to have a good understanding and grasp of the exam syllabuses at both GCSE and A-Level.

I have taught across a wide range of abilities. My experience includes: low level ability in English; Key Stage 3; GCSE English Language; GCSE English Literature focusing on poetry and English Literature (poetry) at AS Level.

I have tutored A-Level English Literature focusing on the Shakespeare and Heaney plays of King Lear and Antigone. This was to help maintain a grade and to increase confidence to meet university entrance criteria. This was achieved.
I have also tutored GCSE English Literature Poetry focusing on poetic devices, analysis of text and understanding of themes and poetic devices for effect.

Tutoring Approach

I will meet with the tutee and have a chat about what areas of English or Drama they believe they are struggling with. After this I will tailor my teaching to those particular areas by coming up with an individual teaching plan suited to them. A lot of my teaching will be done through leading questions, encouraging them to try to come up with the answer or idea themselves. I will not force them and I am patient in working through particularly difficult aspects of English including poetry and novel analysis.

I'm willing to travel no more than 15-20 miles; so don't hesitate to contact me!
