This is how 3 referees rated Karen:
I am an enthusiastic and motivated Tutor, and a trained English Teacher with a PGCE from Strathclyde University. I have a working knowledge of the new curriculum for excellence and qualifications.
I am also a professional playwright and I have an Undergraduate in Scottish/English Literature and Language and a Postgraduate in Scottish Studies (Literature, Language, History and Theatre), both form the University of Glasgow.
Outside of work, I love my dogs and my husband and enjoy living on a working farm in Ayrshire.
I have been tutoring English one to one for approximately 10 years, and drama tutoring for 15. I previously ran a theatre company which itself has strong ties with education (workshops) and teacher training (using Drama as a tool to educate), and am kept up to date and involved in the curriculum and new teaching strategies; I am fully disclosed.
I absolutely love tutoring and am always moved by seeing the difference the support I provide makes. I have a high success rate and the majority of my pupils reach their desired achievement goal. As a testament to this, most of my pupil business is referral based.
My approach is friendly, motivating and always supportive, as well as honest. I am also achievement driven, as this is what motivates pupils. I am here to help you achieve the very best you can achieve.
I tailor my approach to each student, as the learning styles are so vastly different for pupil to pupil.
I cover the English curriculum for excellence which has replaced Standard Grade and Higher.
