Personal Description:

I am a dedicated, enthusiastic and creative English teacher, fully qualified with a PGCE and a 2.1 BA degree in English Literature. I have 7 years teaching experience, with proven ability of helping students develop and improve, increasing their confidence, and providing them with the skills needed to pass their exams.

I can offer tutoring at my home, I can visit your home, or we can arrange tutoring online.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught GCSE English in FE colleges & Community Centres, to both classes and small groups of students from a diverse range of ages, cultures and abilities.

I have tutored a number of students privately (both children & adults). Tuition has included GCSE revision and re-sit classes, grammar & spelling, additional help with class & homework, & help with CV and job applications.

During the last 3 years, I have also worked as a Senior GCSE English Examiner & Moderator for 2 exam boards (AQA & OCR). This experience has proved invaluable in helping students thoroughly prepare for GCSE exams as I have first-hand insight into the specific criteria students need to fulfil in order to achieve different grades.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very responsive and personal to the needs and interests of each individual student. I always ensure my students are involved in developing their own individual learning plan, and I encourage them to share their ideas and interests so I can source teaching materials and resources that will focus on areas of difficulty, whilst at the same time engaging and inspiring them.

I can help students with all areas of difficulty, including exam & study skills, grammar, spelling & punctuation, structuring essays and writing for different audiences & purposes.

As a naturally calm, understanding and patient person, I help students build up their confidence, working on key areas of difficulty & ensuring their progression is clearly tracked and acknowledged through regular feedback and encouragement to keep them motivated.
