I am an English Teacher. I have worked in schools for over 10 years with students at varying stages. I very much enjoy one to one work with students. I have qualifications in working with dyslexic learners and autistic learners. I have a a daughter in S5 who is very driven and focused and a son in S3 who needs extra support in the class room. I feel I understand on a professional and a personal level the challenges and issues in the english classroom.

1 year tutoring a primary school pupil with dyslexia.
Teaching Secondary S1 - S6. [English]
I believe many problems students are experience are around confidence issues. Not having time in the class room to truly grasp concepts, can leave students constantly lost and not able to reach their potential. During sessions I can diagnose the key areas that are causing problems. I can then work out a set of strategies with that student which will allow them to feel more confident and on top of the work expected of them.

I have not yet managed to make contact with Janet but her details need updating:
the email you send out
1) the phone number does not exist
2) her address in your email is Aberfeldy but the address on the main search engine on your website puts her in Dunkeld. This is a difference of about 35 minutes in the car… quite a lot!
The rating attached to this message is not for Janet who we have not met yet - its becuase you cannot send a message without putting a rating.
I am so sorry that the information you required has not been provided with the site. I have updated all this information and have had several students since.
I have left my mobile number which you will be able to see now where we were messaging on the site.
Despite the confusion I would still very much like to help and as regards my distance from you I am in Perth on a regular basis so probably would be able to come to you.
I am sorry I was unable to tutor Rory. As I explained to you my mother had cancer and unexpectedly she collapsed on the day I was due to come to meet you for Rory’s first session. Subsequently she took a turn for for the worse and we as a family stayed by her side until she passed away on 18th March.
I take my reputation as a tutor very seriously. As I said to you I did not know when I would next be available because
my mum had collapsed unexpectedly.
I will refund your agency fee if you provide me with your bank details
