Personal Description:

I have a passion for the English language and its literature which is reflected in my work. I really enjoy tutoring, because I know that one-to-one learning situation gives students the attention and focus which they need to improve, and which they cannot get in school. I am a parent, a published poet and an occasional actor. I only work in West Yorkshire, up to 12 miles from my home, but I will offer discounts dependent on students' willingness to travel to me.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 30 years' experience of teaching English and a variety of other subjects to kids of varying backgrounds and abilities (11 to 18 up to A level) so I have built up an extensive bank of resources over the years, which I use to carefully prepare for lessons. I am also an experienced examiner for AQA, which offers valuable insights into exactly how to achieve high GCSE grades .
I have been tutoring successfully for six years now, and my knowledge and experience would be particularly helpful for students aiming for high grades in their GCSE and A level exams, although I have tutored KS2 successfully too… Recently, I helped a pupil win a scholarship to high-achieving independent QEGS in Wakefield, and others to gain entrance to Heckmondwike. Grammar.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient, friendly and easy to get on with. I have always tried to make my lessons interesting, relevant and inter-active. I tailor my teaching to the pupil and know that praise and encouragement are the keys to confidence and progress. A good sense of humour is vital,too.
I have helped to improve the grades of many pupils, some of whom have achieved the highest grade at GCSE, and have coached younger ones through entrance exams to sought-after schools. One student, whom I tutored for three years, went from a poor level 4 in year 8 to GCSE grade B, the minimum requirement for A levels in many good schools, while others have achieved the A* grades required for their chosen paths.
I have achieved many high ratings from the parents of students I have tutored, as you can see for yourself elsewhere on this page. A good tutor can make a difference with focused one-to-one attention, and I am a good, committed tutor. Hire me and I can help your children achieve the grades they need.
