Ross

Dorchester Tutor

I am an English graduate who has spent the last five years teaching English to learners of all ages. Literature and languages are my twin passions, and I greatly enjoy having the opportunity to help others reach their true potential in these subjects. In addition to the Cambridge CELTA certificate, I also possess the DELTA diploma (Module 2) and the Cambridge-accredited Certificate in Advanced Methodology (CAM).

Tutoring Experience

Two years post-University tutoring GCSE and A Level, followed by five years teaching English as a Foreign Language. In addition to classroom teaching, I have also led and participated in workshops and teacher training days across Europe and worked in academic management as Director of Studies at one of the UK's largest summer schools.

Tutoring Approach

My one-to-one GCSE and A-Level tuition focuses primarily on the language component of each exam. This is the area which, in my experience, causes the greatest headache for students, and so is often the main point of focus when looking to improve grades. Whether you're aiming for top marks or just want to be confident of that all-important "C", I have the experience and knowledge to help your child achieve their exam potential.

Every student is an individual (teenagers doubly so), and so is the course prepared for each student. Whilst sticking firmly to the exam criteria, I work with the student to approach the exam in a way best suited to their natural way of working.
