Personal Description:

I am 36 years old, and I have been teaching at KS3, GCSE and A-level since 2002. I am passionate about English and learning. I believe that as a student of English you develop the most essential, influential and indispensable skills; for me, there is nothing more rewarding than enabling and supporting the success of the young people I work with.

I am also an experienced examiner of GCSE English Language, GCSE English Literature and moderator of A-Level English Literature. My in-depth understanding of these examinations has allowed me to successfully support my students and colleagues to achieve excellent results. I am proud of my track record of being consistently judged as an 'outstanding' practitioner throughout my career.

I completed my teacher training at Birmingham University in 2003, and I was awarded a PGCE in History and English. Subsequently, I taught English, Maths and Humanities to KS3 students, before being promoted to the role of Assistant Area Leader for English. More recently, I have led the English department as a whole.

I believe that we are all learners. As such, I actively seek out opportunities to observe and collaborate with colleagues from the Primary sector as well as Secondary. I also ensure that I maintain an up-to-date knowledge of current research and teaching and learning methodology. This enables me to provide every student with the best tuition possible, suiting their individual needs.

Tutoring Experience:

Throughout my 14 year career, I have successfully taught a range of students. I have a track record of success with all abilities and age groups. My experience includes the teaching of whole classes, small groups and one-to-one tuition.

I have also mentored Newly Qualified Teachers and those completing teacher training.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to inspire a love of English and learning. We learn best when we enjoy what we do, and I believe that there is a way every student can enjoy English. For this reason, I provide tuition which is varied, personalised and engaging.

Through excellent tuition, I endeavour to motivate and enthuse my students, supporting them as they develop as confident, independent learners. It is always my aim to establish a professional relationship which is both positive and encouraging, eliminating the stress, anxiety and negativity which can block achievement and progress. However, I also believe that hard work and perseverance is the key to success for all of us. This being the case, I have high expectations of the students I work with.
