Tutoring Approach

My first priority is to ensure tutees have a solid grasp of the core skills required to meet the requirements of the examination boards, for whichever level this may be.

I have a highly personalised approach and focus on various techniques such as:

  • Individual conversation
  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Literacy -Extended writing
  • Exam & interview preparation -Independent learning techniques -Public speaking -Handwriting -Online tutorials -Memorisation techniques

I also offer relaxed conversation classes in both English and French.

I also offer intensive lessons during school holidays for tutees with less availability.

My flexible approach is always catered towards the needs of the individual student. I have extensive experience with less able pupils, those with additional needs and also with those who have been identified as gifted and talented.

NB: 50% payment for under 24 hours cancellation notice. 100% for no notice given.
