Personal Description:

I currently teach GCSE English part-time at the North West Regional College. I spent my time at school concentrating mostly on the arts and developed a love and passion for English and Drama. I gained top scores many times and came 2nd in Northern Ireland in my English GCSE's. I was awarded three A's at A Level for Drama, English Literature and Media Studies. I also gained a 2:1 degree from Queen's University in English and Film, where I specialised in Medieval studies.
Drama was also a large part of my life from a very young age and I feel I can help people to understand and learn to love both Drama and English through a practical approach. Learning is supposed to be fun and that is what I would like to bring into tutoring.

Tutoring Experience:

I have recently began teaching part time at the North West Regional College - I am currently teaching GCSE English Language. I also have a lot of experience in chairing book clubs and I write children's stories as a freelance occupation also. I have previously tutored for the transfer test exam. I have an excellent grasp of the English Language and a great passion for studying English literature. I believe I can help students discover how enjoyable studying English can be.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will be to encourage all aspects of learning, and to show children and young adults that it doesn't have to be a dull process. I will incorporate the practical at all stages as I feel it is one of the best ways to learn, especially when dealing with texts that can seem quite daunting. I will incorporate all the teaching I have had over the years and the tools and tricks I have been shown as well as my own devices that I have found useful over the years. I would like anyone that I would tutor to see me as a welcome presence rather than just another teacher. Learning can be difficult but it can also be a lot of fun and incredibly rewarding.
