English (Foreign Language)
**ONE TUTORING SLOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE** I have been tutoring privately for six years, working with a variety of pupils - from primary school pupils struggling with the basics of reading and writing through to those re-sitting exams or trying to achieve top grades. I have also taught English Literature and Language to a homeschooled pupil who went on to achieve A*s in both iGCSEs. With this wide range of experience, I feel confident that whatever you are looking to achieve from English tuition, I will be able to support you and work with you to improve your skills, understanding and confidence. I am passionate and enthusiastic about all aspects of English, and really enjoy helping pupils to achieve their goals.
I currently work as an Additional Learning Needs Literacy Co-Ordinator where I deliver small group and individual literacy intervention, as well as teaching small groups of pupils learning English as a foreign language. I am experienced in delivering individualised literacy sessions, as well as material from intervention programmes including Reading Reflex, Toe by Toe, Sound Training and P.A… I am currently completing a Postgraduate Diploma in dyslexia, equipping me with many strategies and techniques to help those who need extra support in literacy.
I'm friendly and approachable, and have found an informal approach where the pupils feel relaxed and confident to be very successful.
I believe that pupils learn best when they're able to enjoy the subject. This means that I tailor each session to that particular pupil so they can progress in the subject whilst also gaining enthusiasm for it. I'm also happy to work on skills or texts that they are studying in school.
