Personal Description:

I am an experienced English teacher, examiner and tutor, with a passion and enthusiasm for the subject.

For years, I have been getting students engaged in English, showing them that they can do it, that they have the skills they never believed they had. I know how to make learning enjoyable. Through a combination of manageable short term goals, immediate feedback and a personal approach, I have helped a multitude of students find increased confidence and exam success.

As an examiner, I know exactly what gets the grades. I can teach your son or daughter how to refine their ideas, their explanations, their answers. As an experienced teacher and pastoral leader, I understand the pressures faced by teenagers today and can show they how to overcome the stresses of GCSE English and how to revise smart rather than just hard (or hardly).

I offer tuition for KS3 and GCSE. I can personalise programmes to cater for all needs, and am happy to work with individuals or small groups of up to 4 students.

Previous tutees have gone from hating English to wanting to take the subject at A level! I break down the subject into manageable chunks so students can see how they are progressing and which skills they are focusing on - this gives them a real sense of achievement.

I am based in the Stony Stratford and the surrounding area and my rates are very competitive. Please get in touch for more information; I look forward to hearing from you.

Tutoring Experience:

I am an experienced English teacher, with previous responsibilities including KS4 Assistant College Principal and KS4 English Co-ordinator (in charge of over 300 students' GCSE English). I have taught English Literature and Language to the entire age and ability range, and will happily personalise any programme to suit the individual needs of the student.

I also have extensive experience as an examiner for the new 9-1 GCSEs and know exactly what gets the grades.

I am friendly and very patient, and hope to make tuition an enjoyable experience for all my students.

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst sessions are flexible and geared towards what students want and need, I specialise in breaking down the subject into manageable chunks.

Through regular progress checks (shared with both students and parents), students will be able to see exactly how they are doing with every skill required. With the progress trackers, they can see just how far they have come and what they need to focus on.

As an examiner, I know exactly what gets the marks and boosts grades. Students will learn a wide range of approaches to help them break down the texts and skills. These methods are proven to bring success and assist in students becoming more confident in English.

Whilst I ensure my sessions are enjoyable and are adapted for students' strengths and interests, I know that their writing is incredibly important. By writing alongside the students, I show them how to develop their ideas in greater depth and develop sophisticated writing. Once this is combined with timed practice, students are perfectly positioned to succeed in their exams!
