Margaret Jill

Narberth Tutor

I am a mature tutor with a wealth of experience in teaching my subject to children and young adults up to the age of 16 years old. I have recently taken early retirement from full time teaching, though I still regularly work in schools as a supply teacher.

Tutoring Experience

I have over fourteen years experience working full time as a teacher of English in Secondary Schools in Wales. As an experienced WJEC Examiner in English Language, I have a clear insight into the requirements, approaches and skills needed to succeed at GCSE level. Before commencing my career as a teacher, I worked as a private tutor in Germany giving English lessons to students and adults. I am fluent in German, and also have experience in teaching a beginners' course to the German language to children of primary school age.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that developing confidence is the key to making fast-track progress for every child. I focus on improving what a child can already achieve - the emphasis is on areas for improvement and 'getting there.' My approach is always positive and encouraging and to engage my tutees at every stage of their development. Wherever possible, I will give your child a range of strategies to help them improve their language skills in reading, writing or examination preparation.
