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.
