Lorna

Alnwick Tutor

After teaching English in a secondary school for 10 years, I am now devoting my time to private tutoring. I am very passionate about my subject and strive to make my subject accessible and enjoyable for each and every student.

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching in a secondary school since 2002 and achieved consistently good results at KS3, KS4 and KS5 (English Language). Before this, I completed a TESOL course and taught Spanish students who were visiting the UK.

From 2002, I have also tutored students for GCSE and enjoyed it immensely, ensuring students gain the grades they need and building their confidence for approaching exams.

Tutoring Approach

-I firmly believe in personalised learning and will adapt resources and my teaching style for each student. Together we will create a teaching programme to target and address areas for improvement.
-I have always had an excellent rapport with my students, with a firm but fair approach.
-I fully understand how difficult it can be for students who are approaching exams, and can be available via e-mail in the evenings to offer extra support.
