This is how 2 referees rated Nicola:
I'm a bright and insightful woman, passionate about literature, English, and creative arts.
I'm as passionate about encouraging a love of reading and enjoyment of literature as I am about clarity and freedom of expression and attending to the necessary details of coursework and examinations, and with originality and flair.
I'm as able to give intellectual and inspirational support as I am emotional and practical support, and in this way I am as much a tutor/ teacher as I am a coach and a mentor, and a wise and supportive friend.
I feel thankful to have been in the presence of some very inspirational teachers as a young woman and through them to have been inspired into teaching myself.
I'm also a poet and spoken word artist, and have performed on the radio and at festivals and had poems published in magazines.
Six years teaching English in Secondary Schools in the UK (all abilities).
Teacher and tutor for the full Secondary range **Telephone Number Removed** glish conversation EFL
I'm as able to give intellectual and inspirational support as I am emotional and practical support, and in this way I am as much a tutor/ teacher as I am a coach and mentor and a wise and supportive friend.
My approach is a holistic and student - centred and as much a sensing into a student's intellectual needs, strengths, and potential as it is about encouraging and fostering a more general love of literature and learning, and a sense of capability and empowerment.
And so there is the curriculum and in and around this there is also a wider journey of discovering our unique offerings and expression in the world and finding a confidence in this. And in this way my approach is a creative and an alternative one, innovative and often fun, and also always a loving one.
And, very much an individualised and personal approach, and in the knowing that we are all different and each one of us with our own strengths, and potentials, and often too with our own preferred learning styles e.g. some of us learn more visually, and some of us are more kinesthetic.
And, I have a rich bag of resources to draw upon, and from my own professional and heart - lead journeyings in the teaching field and the fields of healing and creative arts.
