Personal Description:

I am a freelance tutor, writer and researcher with a PhD in English Literature. I am extremely passionate about literature and enjoy reading a wide range of contemporary and classic authors. My other interests include travelling, cycling and going to the gym.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a qualified teacher for 16 years and over this time I have garnered a wealth of experience teaching KS3, KS4 and KS5. Alongside my tutoring commitments I also offer a writing, editing and proofreading service. Therefore, I can provide guidance and constructive criticism on your essay, dissertation or thesis.

My recent clients have been PhD students and they have benefitted from the fact that I have experience writing and structuring a doctoral thesis. However, I also have a number of distance learning pupils from KS3-KS5 and am happy and confident to teach any age group. I offer **Contact Detail Removed** lessons and on-line tuition - so distance is not a problem!

I believe that learning should be fun and rewarding. I provide superb exam revision sessions which will ensure you enter the exam hall confident and ready to show the examiner all you know! My role as an examiner for AQA gives me a broad understanding of exam criteria and emphasises the importance of utilising the specification in order to succeed.

Tutoring Approach:

Initially I will carry out a short assessment and then create an appropriate scheme of work. As all students have a variety of learning styles I will ensure each session meets the specific individual needs of each pupil. I feel discussion work is valuable which will then lead to written work. I am a patient, friendly and professional person who is easy to get on with. I can help pupils achieve their potential. I believe that motivation is a crucial factor in achieving full potential- whatever the age!
