I am a patient and understanding tutor with over 4 years tutoring experience.
I understand that this is a difficult time for students due to the uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus situation, and thus I will do my very best to meet your requirements.
I am available to tutor both face to face and online, both as a homeschooling tutor, and as a traditional tutor.
I am professional and reliable, with experience in teaching a range of age groups, (from year 1 to adult), and a range of subjects including; (but not limited to): English (including language and literature at GCSE and A Level as well as phonics, grammar and literacy from years 1 to 6), mathematics, psychology, business, and sociology. I am familiar with all exam boards, preparation for SATS exams as well as the phonics screening test.
I also have extensive experience of working with students with additional needs including Autistic Spectrum Disorder, (including Asperger's Syndrome and Pathological Demand Avoidence), dyslexia and dyspraxia. Additionally, I work with students who have cognitive difficulties such as those associated with retaining information. I am also very aware of the effect these conditions may have upon a student's confidence, and consequently put the onus on what a student can do, rather than continually focusing on what they feel they "can't do".
I am also available to tutor English as a second language, tailoring the lessons to the needs of the student:. Pronunciation skills, everyday English, and English for Business are examples of the areas I have taught both to private students, and to those working within a corporate environment.
I am available to help with academic skills, including essay structuring and grammatical composition as well as offering advice on exam techniques.
I am also available to proofread assignments.
Additionally, I have taught adults in a variety of settings including a prison, a further education college and a training provider. I have also worked with these students on a one-to-one
basis, assisting them with their literacy and reading skills.
I have extensive experience of tutoring homeschooled students, focusing on subjects such as English and maths.
I have taught students who need extra support in English and maths through government "welfare-to-work" schemes.
I have also taught ICT and assisted with Learndirect schemes.
I have completed the Award in Education and Training, and will be starting the next phase of teacher training in the Autumn. I am also currently studying for a qualification in supporting learners with additional needs such as autism and dyslexia.
I have GCSE English language, English Literature, Maths and Science all at a higher level pass. I also have A Levels in English Literature and Sociology.
I have an Honours degree in Business Studies with Finance, as well as post graduate qualifications in Psychology.
I have DBS clearance.
My approach to tutoring is relaxed but consistent. I encourage the student to work through and come up with solutions to tasks themselves. This encourages deep thinking and development of the student's problem-solving skills-set.
Please note that due to increasing petrol costs, I am having to introduce a £5 petrol charge for distances over 10 miles.
