Personal Description:

I am married with three adult daughters and having taught English for 19 years as well as Film Studies for 5 years, I am now a student taking a Masters in Literary Studies.

Tutoring Experience:

My first degree is in English with History. I taught for 19 years in two schools. I also introduced and was in charge of GCSE and A Level Film Studies in my last school. I have extensive experience of many exam boards, having been an examiner for English and Literature GCSE, A level and the International Baccalaureate for the last 17 years. I tutor at all levels, from Scotland to India, face to face and online, GCSE to the IB in English Language and Literature, as well as adult tuition for those who wish to gain the English qualification in preparation for teacher training. All of my tutees have been successful, my last IB tutee gaining a Level 7 in English and my 2018 A level tutee moving up to the grade he needed for university.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe my empathic approach to a tutee is a key characteristic of my approach. Making good relationships with students is vital in encouraging their growth of confidence. A successful teacher/tutor cares about their students and wants them to feel they can approach their exams knowing exactly what they must do to achieve highly. My depth of subject knowledge and very wide experience of examining ensures that a tutee will feel reassured that they are in safe hands and will be patiently, but enthusiastically guided towards their goals. My lessons are exceptionally well prepared and resourced. I ensure that my tutees are provided with comprehensive revision resources that are tailored to their individual needs. I hold a current DBS certificate which I am happy to provide on request.
