I am 39, married, with two young children aged 2 and 5. I am a children's playwright, a qualified English and Drama teacher and I enjoy playing the piano, putting on plays, watching sport and going skiing.
I have been a qualified teacher for 16 years, during which time I have taught English to Years 6-11 and Drama to Years 7-13. At present I work in a school for students with mild educational difficulties, and I have specialist qualifications in dyslexia and phonics. I currently tutor English to three students between the ages of 13-16.
I have found the best approach to tutoring to be wholly particular to the needs of the individual student, to recognise and build upon their strengths whilst addressing their weaknesses. It is also vital that each session is enjoyable and productive, boosting tutees confidence in their own abilities and desire to take ownership over their learning and progress.
