Personal Description:

Hello, my name is Rebecca. I specialise in English language/linguistics and I am keen to tutor/help anyone with their English language skills whether your are a non-native speaker looking to improve your spoken and/or written English, or a native speaker of English looking for help on your national 5 or advanced highers. I have a GCSE and an A-level in English Language in addition to a degree in Linguistics, a Master's in Bilingualism and one and a half year's experience doing a PhD in Linguistics. I am also qualified to A-level in psychology and can teach psychology for GCSE and Advanced Highers. I am also able to tutor those who would like help with data handling in Microsoft Excel and data analysis/statistics using SPSS.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience tutoring both one-to-one individual sessions and tutoring groups of 20. I have worked with children from the age of 5 and have tutored adults in their 30's. The children I have worked with comprised children with typical language development and those with atypical language development (specific language impairment, autism and dyslexia). Adults with whom I work are a mixture of native and non-native speakers of English.

I am currently employed by the University of Edinburgh to tutor the tutorials for one of their modules in Linguistics. In addition to my work at the University of Edinburgh I also engage in regular private tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is important to tailor learning sessions to the needs and abilities of the student. Our current school system is still based on the traditions established during the Victorian times which maintains that groups (classes) of children will receive the same teaching, ignoring the abilities and personal needs of the individual children who make up that class. This is what is known as a 'one glove fits all' approach. I believe in catering teaching to the student's needs and abilities and to engage students at all levels. I also do not believe that teaching should be a static process, whereby students just listen to a teacher talking. It is important for students to think for themselves, to use the skills they have learnt in order to solve new challenges. It is important to keep students engaged. Learning should be fun and we can make this possible by presenting students with interactive exercises that are both fun and challenging. A successful tutoring session should leave a student feeling excited, reflective and overall hungry to learn more.
