This is how 2 referees rated Michelle:
I own a tutoring company based in Oxenhope and offer small-group English tuition.
I am a passionate teacher of English Language and Literature, with 10 years teaching experience at Bingley Grammar School and Parkside School. I have two children and have tutored on and off for 8 years.
I completed a degree in English Literature at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne before working for several years in marketing and publishing. After a year's travelling I finally trained to be a teacher in 2007 at Roehampton University, a renowned teaching university in London. I find teaching to be an extremely rewarding career and pride myself on building up positive working relationships with pupils and supporting pupils fully in order that they want to achieve their potential.
Since qualifying as an English teacher in 2008 I have worked at Bingley Grammar School as an English teacher. I have achieved excellent results from pupils in both literature and language coursework and examinations at GCSE and at A-level and pride myself in motivating students to do well and a really solid knowledge of the curriculum.
Students are taught in small groups of no more than 5, often less. This is undoubtedly the best way for tutees to learn as the sessions are more dynamic and tutees can learn from eachother as well as from me.
Prior to learning, I will meet with parents and students free of charge to consult on areas of strength and weakness and to set up a tutoring plan. Homework and classwork is set and marked and parents receive feedback on pupil motivation and progress after each lesson; on top of this, there are termly parent-tutor consultations to discuss progress and next steps.
I am friendly, driven and patient. My teaching style is to build up positive relationships with the students in my classes and to teach practical methods to drive them towards exam success.
