|Hourly Rate||Online Lessons|
I am a qualified GCSE and A level English teacher with over seven years experience. I specialise in teaching English Language and Literature, but I am also familiar with Media Studies. I am a very passionate teacher and I believe that learning should be both accessible and enjoyable. I pride myself on my ability to create lessons which are interesting and stimulating and I feel that the best way to harness a student's potential is through creativity.
I have taught in both college and secondary school and I am familiar with GCSE, iGCSE and A level curriculum. I have also taught IELTS and KET in Nepal and India.
I believe that the best way to tutor is to allow students to take ownership of their learning and to contribute to the planning and delivery of their sessions. I encourage students and parents, if necessary, to take an active role in establishing which areas of concern need to be addressed and how they wish to work to ensure that they improve and progress. I like to begin by assessing current attainment levels and devising a scheme of work that will scaffold learning, allow greater understanding and encourage greater confidence. I believe that the learning experience should be varied and enjoyable and I aim to provide an environment which fosters a positive learning experience. I deliver lessons using a variety of teaching strategIes and methods and I encourage students to assess their own learning after each session, to enable a more targeted approach to their studies, thereby allowing faster progress. In addition to teaching, I also provide worksheets and assessments that can be done at home, these are not compulsory, but they are highly beneficial for students to practice what they have learned and encourages parents to track their progress.
