Information About Lisa - Chester tutor - (8 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Lisa:
I have been teaching English Language and Literature at GCSE for 20 years. I have also taught Theatre Studies/Musical Theatre at A Level for the same amount of time and have many years experience of directing actors/ full scale productions. Other teaching work includes leading the Extended Project Qualification and teaching on the AS Media Studies course.
Alongside my teaching job I have tutored many students. In particular, I have worked with students who are struggling in years 10,11,12 to achieve a pass grade in GCSE. English Lang/Lit. I have also helped many students with study skills and personal organisation.
I have six years experience in marking the GCSE / IGCSE English paper for one of the major exam boards. I am fully conversant with the new 1-9 spec. in Lit and Lang having marked both papers for the exam board in17/18.
My approach is always to start by ascertaining the skills a student already has and highlighting these. Quite often when someone is struggling they have become used to only focusing on what they cannot do ! This can be very demoralising. I also do lots of self correction exercises as I find that students can invariably correct more of their own mistakes than they give themselves credit for. In this way I feel that I am good at helping students to grow in confidence and to feel much more positive about themselves and their abilities.
My lessons then are very exam based. I focus in turn on different parts of the exam paper. The lessons are structured into sections and a different technique is practiced in each. I have an excellent success rate.
