Personal Description:

I currently have a large number of students in total, ranging from Primary 5 to adult learners for a wide range of subjects.

I have been running my own tutoring business for several years now.

PLEASE NOTE - I CURRENTLY HAVE 'AS AND WHEN' SLOT AVAILABLE WHERE THE DAY AND TIME WILL VARY. I'M OPERATING A RESERVE LIST TO OFFER FREE SLOTS TO WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE.

TUTORING SESSIONS ARE 45 MINUTES LONG.

I cater for students aged 5 and over with all students treated individually to maximise their learning experience.

In 2011 I obtained a First Class LL.B from the University of Stirling. I have recently sat additional Highers to expand upon my education. I am currently undertaking further study in Teaching English as a Foreign Language as well as Conveyancing and Wills, Trusts and Executries to expand upon my teaching and legal experience. I have secured a studentship to complete my law PhD in child protection and human rights. I live with my 8 year old son in the central Borders.

All students receive an overall tutoring experience where they learn how to study, how to organise their time as well as the skills required to achieve the grades they deserve.

Tutoring Experience:

I have now been tutoring for 11 years. In this time I have tutored over 400 students in a range of subjects; law, French, English, maths, biology, history, modern studies and chemistry. I also have many primary aged children who are helped with timetables, reading amongst other areas.

I am friendly and approachable and like helping students reach their potential. Most of my students have been recommended by parents of other students.

I endeavour to be as flexible as possible to fit in with busy parents. Please see my feedback for examples of this.

Tutoring Approach:

Confidence is the key - If youngsters have confidence in their ability a grasp for the subject will follow.

Every student is different. It is important to determine their strengths and work in an organised manner through the issues causing concern. This will require the tutee completing work before the tutorial in order to get as much as possible from the subject.

Exam techniques are also very important, particularly around exam/prelim time. I would aim to continously work towards assessment goals, whilst expanding, through learning, on what should be focused on for the exam. This is especially important for Standard Grade level and above. However, these skills should be built up through previous levels at both Primary and Secondary school to lead to a smooth transition between levels. I would be more than willing to explain my methods in more detail, if requested.
