Information About Michael - Highgate tutor - (3 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Michael:
I am a qualified teacher who is passionate about helping student's reach their potential. When not teaching I have a keen interest in travel and technology.
I spent two years teaching KS3 - KS5 English in an inner-city school in West London. I was part of the Teach First Graduate scheme which takes high achieving graduates and places them on a fast track programme to gain teacher qualification in the country's most challenging and deprived schools.
I am an individual with extensive experience in education and youth work, and I have had the pleasure of tutoring for 5 years (both with First Tutors and privately). I have had great success working with students who have been under achieving in English andI am extremely proud with how quickly many of them progressed both during my engagement with them, as well as afterwards.
With respect to my previous tuition experience, I am very proud to say that I have a long list of very happy clients (all of whom you are more that welcome to seek a reference from). I believe that my strengths as a tutor stem from my ability to deeply engage with students and gain a thorough understanding of them as individuals. By going through a process of identifying what aspects of studying is holding them back and then developing the skill set required to overcome those barriers, I have found that students can often surpass their own expectations.

Michael makes the subject more interesting and creative allowing my son to actually take a greater interest in his written work and presentation skills.
