Personal Description:

I am an Honours graduate in French Language and Literature from King's College, London, and teach English Language and Literature, Maths, French and Latin to children of primary and early secondary age. I also teach adults and casual learners who are hoping for a broader, non-exam-focused education. I am a professional editor and published author, have years of experience in teaching writing skills to professionals, and have judged an international poetry prize. I regularly run workshops on English Language and Literature to groups of children and young people in the Guildford area; we explore some of the best books for children and young people, do absorbing and dynamic activities focusing on them, and allow the students to choose engaging writing or art & craft projects inspired by them. I also regularly teach Maths, French and Latin to children up to age 14.

Tutoring Experience:

I have nearly 20 years' experience of teaching English Language and Literature, Maths, French and Latin to children from age 5 up to age 14; in addition, I support the work of specialist GCSE teachers by providing extra coaching and homework support in these subjects. I am experienced at teaching children both one-to-one and in groups. In addition to inspiring students in creative writing, I also offer specialist teaching in grammar, punctuation, and essay-writing skills. I have extensive experience of inspiring reluctant readers and writers.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in inspiring and supporting children and young people in their learning. I provide fun and lively lessons and offer plenty of encouragement for students to enjoy learning and to do their best. I create a flexible, one-to-one service so that we create a mode and a pace of learning that suits the student. I am happy to work to the student's curriculum or to provide an alternative approach that puts extra fun back into learning. I am happy to use students' materials, to adapt them or to use my own. I like using games as a learning tool with students but am happy to use worksheets, too, if that is what students would like.
