Personal Description:

I am a supply English teacher in South West Scotland and can travel around the region or do home based tuition in National 4/5, Higher or Advanced Higher levels. I can also help from home with email consultation and checking of writing tasks, whether for NABs, folios or critical essays. My 'zone' is Lockerbie, Moffat, Dumfries and Annan.
I can also assist with English as an Additional Language and have been involved in preparing Polish and other EAL pupils for SQA courses.

Tutoring Experience:

32 years teaching experience in secondary schools in the region.I have been tutoring privately for over fifteen years.
SQA marker at Standard Grade since 1985.

Tutoring Approach:

The main aim is to get students successfully through their exams but at the same time to promote the appreciation of language and literature. I have a good record in helping students at Higher level to improve critical essay choices and I sometimes feed in alternative short texts which lend themselves to successful essay writing. I also help a lot with performance in writing folio work to boost eventual results.
