This is how 2 referees rated Louise:
I live in Fife with my husband and two young children. We recently moved to Arizona for two years, where I taught at a Junior High School. I am hoping to tutor in Glenrothes or surrounding area. I currently teach High School in Dunfermline.
I would prefer tutees to travel to me this year where possible.
I have taught English in Fife for 16 years and am fully registered with the GTC. I have extensive experience teaching 'old' Standard Grade and Higher, and currently teach National 4, 5 and the new Higher National 6. I have taught a variety of levels and abilities with great success in exam results. I have just completed two years of new Higher and know the course very well.
I spent two years teaching in the USA from 2011-2013 and gained valuable experience teaching a different curriculum for a short time. I have tutored many students in the time I have been a High School teacher: mainly S4-S6 students sitting National Exams.
I tutored 16 pupils in 2016 in National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher. All pupils passed, achieving their potential. Many achieved top grades.
In 2015 my students had lots of success. I tutored 5 students and they achieved their potential: four pupils were awards an A at National 5 and one pupil achieved a C pass. They all worked really hard.
I develop many resources and courses for every level from S1-S6 and have a student centred approach to my teaching practice. I currently mark for SQA and have done so every year I have lived in Scotland: I have marked National 5 paper 1 for two years. Prior to this I marked Higher Close Reading and Writing Folio.
I have a variety of support materials for tutoring; taking account of needs and abilities I try aim to match each lesson to skills development. I have a friendly approach to teaching and build on a student's strengths as well as key weaknesses. Close Reading question types and critical essay structures are my specialty; I am currently adapting exam papers to match new question types and success criteria.
I have a flexible approach to teaching exam skills in these areas and can help with literature studied for Scottish Set text as we find our way with the new CFE Senior Phase.
