Information About Louise - Hertford tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Louise:
Having recently graduated from University College London with a Masters degree in English Literature, I am now living and working in London. I have just returned from a year in Paris where I worked with French children, of ranging ages, helping them to improve their English outside of school.
My main interests are in academia and journalism. My hobbies include writing poetry, playing piano, writing lyrics and music for guitar, reviewing drama and poetry, and making documentaries. I also really enjoy travelling, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people.
I have been teaching English Literature at secondary school level, both to GCSE candidates and A-level candidates for four years now. I have been a support teacher (in English Literature) in a secondary school and have tutored privately for three years.
I have also coached GCSE drama students as well as students preparing for drama, singing and speech-giving competitions outside of school.
I was lucky enough to be tutored myself during my GCSEs, so I am confident in my ability to recognise effective tutoring methods. My own approach is largely dependent on the needs of the pupil, to be considered in the first lesson. I am keen for my students to take a leading role where possible, suggesting topics for the lessons and identifying their own areas for improvement. I believe this is the most rewarding approach for the student. Having said that, I am equally happy to take the reins and lead the lesson entirely. The most important thing is that the student is comfortable with the way that the lessons are planned and taught. I think it is valuable to use set guidebooks and course books where available, but also to move away from these with more imaginative (often more creative) learning strategies, to ensure that learning is enjoyable, fulfilling, new and challenging.
