Personal Description:

I am currently an English teacher in an outstanding, high-performing secondary school in East London. I have been teaching for six years and have experience of teaching all Key Stages. Further to this, I am also an examiner for WJEC English Language.

I am an enthusiastic teacher and I see tutoring as an opportunity to help those who are struggling with the subject and those who need a confidence boost.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching in Secondary Schools for the past six years, where I have taught English Language and Literature to KS3, 4 and 5. During this time, I have experienced teaching different exam boards (AQA, WJEC and IGCSE).

I am passionate about teaching so I ensure that pupils are engaged with their learning. I take time to understand pupils and their individual learning needs. I am confident teaching a range of abilities, pushing those trying to reach an 8/9 grade and also pushing those on the borderline 4/5/6 grades.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is one of structure and organisation. Before each session, I make sure that I am equipped with knowledge about the tutee's English exam board and evaluate the pupil's weaknesses and strengths within the subject. This will enable me to determine a structure and plan of how the tutee will progress in our sessions.

I then use past papers and essay questions for the subsequent session. This is how I personalise learning and it is the best way for me to understand the tutee and to enable them to progress. I have seen remarkable outcomes for my tutees through this system.

I also offer revision guides and resources for pupils so that they can work through the skills learnt during our tutoring sessions. I am also able to receive emails of pupils' work etc to read through and offer guidance/support.
