Hi, I'm a qualified English Language /Literature teacher with 13 years experience in Secondary schools. I have great enthusiasm about my subject and enjoy teaching across all abilities and ages. I have an extremely calm and encouraging manner which makes my students feel at ease so enabling them to gain confidence and make progress. As a father and teacher, I empathise with parents and students who have anxieties about passing exams or even just improving in English.
I have taught for 13 years across the age and ability range in Secondary schools. Many students have benefitted from the knowledge and understanding they have gained under my teaching and have then gone on to gain exam success, whether this is at KS3 or at GCSE. My expertise includes improving grammar, punctuation and spelling and the analysis of a variety of texts types including non-fiction, fiction and play scripts.
I believe all learners, regardless of ability deserve every opportunity to succeed in English as this is fundamental to everything else in the world around them. I will find out as much information as I can about students and adapt learning to their individual needs. Getting to know the student and personalising resources to suit them increases their self confidence, enabling them to feel they can succeed. My calm, friendly and non-threatening manner provides makes for as pleasant learning environment. I also teach exam technique which is an important element of English. Students will enjoy my lessons.
