Personal Description:

I am a committed and enthusiastic teacher of English, with nearly twenty years of experience teaching English Language and Literature up to A-Level in local secondary schools. My last teaching post finished in May 2015 as I am taking a career break to look after my young daughter. I am now keen to build upon the experience I already have working as a private tutor, offering one to one tuition.

Tutoring Experience:

I have consistently been judged as 'outstanding' by Ofsted inspectors and school management and students in my classes have nearly always achieved or exceeded their target grades. As well as teaching large groups, I have regularly worked on a one to one basis with GCSE and A-Level students who are preparing for controlled assessments , coursework or exams. Having taught in many comprehensive schools, I have experience of supporting students of all abilities, from those targeting A* or preparing for Oxbridge, to students with specific learning difficulties. Most recently I have been preparing students for exams with WJEC and for the Cambridge igcse but am able to teach to all specifications. Later this year, I will be an examiner for WJEC, giving me further insight into how to support students in their GCSEs.

Tutoring Approach:

I have been lucky enough to form excellent relationships with the young people I have taught. As well as being well-organised, knowledgeable and thorough, I have been described as a warm and patient person who is sensitive to the needs of individuals. I enjoy adapting my resources/ teaching materials to suit the styles of specific learners. Over the years, I have derived immense satisfaction from helping young people to achieve their potential.
