Personal Description:

I have a wealth of qualifications (BA, MA, MEd, CELTA, PTLLS) in a variety of subjects as well as a current enhanced DBS check. I enjoy teaching and tutoring - for me, the smaller the group, the better. I have plenty of experience at both. I am a Cambridge certified English teacher, a history postgraduate of Leeds University and an education and applied linguistics postgraduate of the Open University. This rigorous academic background is complemented by my approachable and humorous manner and excellent communication skills. As I also underwent training to be a primary school teacher, I have the skills and knowledge to teach young children just as capably as adults if your child needs help in the basics. In short, whatever your age or ability, I can help!

Tutoring Experience:

I have teaching and tutoring experience at every age and ability range from KS1 primary to postgraduate supervision in a range of subjects. I have taught in primary schools in England and France during my PGCE. I have taught English as a foreign language to all age groups and in both single language and multiple language groups. I have always received high praise for my quick and easy rapport for learners; my imaginative ideas and use of innovative techniques in the classroom; my sensitivity to learners' needs; and my excellent subject knowledge. Both my students and observers always walk away from my lessons saying how much fun they are. Two of my three most recent directors of studies assessed me as "outstanding in all areas".

Tutoring Approach:

I believe the best way to obtain the best results is to listen to the student and ascertain their needs; develop an initial plan of content; develop a good personal rapport; find the student's preferred learning styles; and then create an environment which makes learning fun, interesting and rewarding. I'm almost never happy with textbooks and I almost always make my own materials for lessons whether physical, audio-visual or other media.
