Kimberley

Johnstone Tutor

My name is Kimberley and I have been teaching in secondary schools for the past 6 years.I have a great passion for my subject and adore literature and the written word.

Tutoring Experience

I have been an educator for 9 years. In my career I have worked with a variety of different students from a range of different backgrounds. I have worked all over Scotland and have also worked in Qatar as an English Teacher and Head of Year. I have been tutoring for almost 7 years and I am delighted by the progress of my students. I work both privately and with Kip Mcgrath tutoring schools.
I have worked with students from Primary school up until adults.I have also taught English as a Second Language both in Qatar and in an International Summer School in Arrochar.
My main focus is secondary school students completing National 3,4&5 and Higher.

Tutoring Approach

Teaching has always been a passion of mine. I understand the meaning of a good teacher and I strongly believe this is not simply an academic. A good teacher must be approachable and understanding. In order to engage young learners we have the responsibility as educators to spark their interest and keep them engaged. It is my vocation and passion to work with young people and I believe that when being tutored young people should be put at ease and be encouraged by an enthusiastic individual who has a passion and commitment to their success. Often with students it is lack of confidence which holds them back. I believe that working on both this and their skill development ensures success.
