Personal Description:

I am a very active, semi-retired teacher and lecturer. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, and have many interests such as the University of the Third Age and gardening; learning to speak Greek, and trying to play guitar! I work part-time for several universities supporting and mentoring students with dyslexia.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a BA(hons) in English/History, a PGCE and I am a literacy specialist and an Associate Member of the Dyslexia Guild. I have over 25 years experience in education, teaching English, Literacy, Numeracy and a variety of other subjects to both adults and children. I have taught all levels of English from beginners, Entry 1 to A level. Many of my students have achieved the magic 'C' in GCSE when all else has failed. I am experienced in teaching students with dyslexia and other learning difficulties. I also enjoy teaching foreign students.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a learner-centred approach to teaching. I am very patient. I work very much with students to find out what motivates and interests them to enable me to devise stimulating and inspiring teaching sessions. I believe that learning should be exciting and enjoyable for both student and teacher. I will provide students with a structured but flexible learning programme which we will discuss and agree before we begin sessions.

I would strongly suggest GCSE students start early in the year with extra tuition, especially for poetry, as leaving it until two months before the exam is not sufficient time to absorb an understanding.
