Personal Description:

Only available for summer tutoring sessions.

I am currently working as an 'outstanding' English teacher in a secondary school. I studied English and American Literature at Birmingham University and always knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I believe that I am a creative and passionate teacher, who makes lessons fun and engaging for all students.

I am an avid reader and a lover of all things Harry Potter and other fantasy novels. I enjoy encouraging students and giving them confidence in English, so that they love it as much as me!

The summer GCSE exams are coming up so I am offering some weekend sessions for revision leading up to this.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching English literature and English language for four years now, which has given me a thorough understanding of the new GCSE specifications, for AQA in particular. I have also taught the EDEXCEL and WJEC exam course, giving me diversity in helping tutees pass their exams.

I have experience of teaching KS3, KS4 and KS5 to a wide range of abilities and needs, where I provide differentiated work in order to help support the and challenge all students.

I teach Literature and Language at GCSE and have a excellent understanding of the markscheme and how to help students understand the skills and techniques needed in the exam.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring consists of initially working with the student to decipher the areas where they feel confident and the areas that they need support in. I will then develop a course of sessions which wil target these needs and improve them. Working one-to-one with appropriate resources will ensure that the tutee is supported in the appropriate and most effective way.

Because I am currently working as an English teacher, I have a vast array of resources that I will use to help the tutee, aswell as creating work which is individualised for them. After they have completed some work, I mark it and work with the student on how they could improve it further. Consistently making progress in each session.

I am extremely friendly and I like to build a trusted relationship with the tutee, to ensure that they feel comfortable in approaching me with questions.
