Personal Description:

I've been tutoring for the past few years, hold a PVG disclosure, and know better than anyone that Higher and National 5 English are hard courses, especially when you fall behind due to illness or anything else. Since I sat the exams recently myself I can give more insight into what exam questions come up, marker tendencies, etc, than any other tutor. I'm currently at University and intending to continue teaching once I leave.

Tutoring Experience:

I've been tutoring for the past four years and I'm PVG regulated. I tutor mostly in the local area and occasionally Aberdeenshire.

Tutoring Approach:

The people I've tutored say that I helped them because not only did I understand the course completely, but I also put it into a very simple way that each individual understood. I never patronize (something which tutors in my personal experience do occasionally), and whenever a student gets confused, I'm never judgemental as people learn at different paces.
I provide a relaxed environment when I tutor, which helps people to concentrate. When I was tutored for a different subject, my tutor made me feel as if I were a liability, which is wrong. Talking to someone your own age about the problems you're having with the course and solving them is MUCH less stressful and embarrassing than talking to a tutor who took a vastly different course thirty or so years ago.

I'm also able to do adult tutoring, helping with things like writing, improving skills, etc.
