Steve

Swansea Tutor

I specialise in GCSE English Language and Literature, working privately and in schools to provide tuition one-to-one or in small groups. I focus particularly on Years 10 and 11, helping students with content, skills and exam technique. My teaching style is relaxed but professional; I aim to get the best out of all my students!

I am also able to teach English as a Second Language. I also teach German.

Tutoring Experience

I hold a teaching qualification (PGCE) and a DBS clearance.

I have recently worked with pre-GCSE students via teaching agencies in their homes and also with small groups in their school. I am thoroughly familiar with the new WJEC curriculum and exam formats.

Tutoring Approach

I tailor my lessons to suit individual needs. For GCSE students, I focus on confidence and skills-building and coach students in how to approach their exams to best effect. Together, we examine what is really required by each exam question and develop writing and reading skills to achieve the best possible marks for individuals. My tutoring uses WJEC-approved materials and past papers.
