Personal Description:

I am an experienced secondary Teacher of English and English tutor. Many parents have said their son or daughter would not have gotten their qualification without my help. I am enthusiastic, patient, encouraging and I explain things in ways that tutees can easily understand. As a pupil once said to me, "I don't understand when other teachers explain things, but I understand how you explain things and you don't give up until I understand everything." The very nature of tutoring allows me to give individual attention to either one tutee or two tutees coming for sessions. I love tutoring, building the confidence of tutees and seeing tutees succeed. Though I am American by nationality, I have lived in the UK since 1990 and I am very accustomed to British English and British education having taught in the UK. I did my PGCE at the University of Durham and have taught in Scotland. I prefer 24 hours notice of cancellations. if at all possible. I tutor in my home or I can come to the tutee's home for tuition. I do not charge mileage.

Tutoring Experience:

Secondary Teacher of English in Scotland GTCS registered.

Tutoring Approach:

One of the most important aspects of tutoring is building confidence by showing tutees they can accomplish what they sometimes think they cannot. I am confident, patient and encouraging as I take a tutee methodically through the qualification they hope to achieve. We focus on what they consider weaknesses or what has shown itself as a weakness in classroom work or prelim results. We are able to work through these, build confidence and increase understanding of what is required in classroom work or exams.
