Private English Tutor in Wincanton

I am a highly experienced, fully qualified English Teacher and Tutor. With over 18 years experience, I have successfully helped numerous students make dramatic improvements to their GCSE grades. With my friendly manner and professionalism, I have been able to improve not just my pupils’ English skills, but also their confidence.

Tutoring Experience

Working in a classroom for 15 years as an English teacher has made me fully aware of the exam demands within secondary schools. In the last 3 years, I have worked as a 1:1 tutor, and I have helped students gain not just the ability, but also the confidence to tackle their exams. All of my students have seen remarkable GCSE grade improvements and have received the results they deserved.
I am experienced in all areas of the English curriculum within secondary schools, up to GCSE level. Grammar, creative writing and comprehension are my particular areas of expertise. Also, with encouragement, my students can begin to enjoy reading for pleasure. I also have experience with teaching adults and am happy to work with any age group above ten years old.

Tutoring Approach

I am a very calm and patient teacher, full of encouragement and the skills to enthuse students of all ages.
