Victoria offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
Masters graduate passionate about language and literature. Have worked and traveled overseas and am always keen to embrace new challenges, whether personal or professional. Have worked as a support worker and have management experience and am an independent thinker who can look outside the box for solutions and ideas for progression. I am down-to-earth and offer a level-headed approach.
Began working as a private tutor in 1997 following graduation from university. I established a tuition **Contact Detail Removed** overseas (2009-11), tutoring and home-schooling students aged 5 to 18. I have taught basic skills to vulnerable school leavers and spent a year teaching English to students aged 3 to 16 years old in Japan. I have extensive experience doing supply in schools in South Wales (since 2006) and have worked as an English teacher in an international private secondary school in Malaysia. At this school I also taught History and Drama and in 2009 my entire English class achieved A* for First Language English IGCSE. My PGCE in Secondary English with Drama was achieved with merit at Exeter University. I teach A-Level English part-time.
Initially it is important to identify the specific learning needs of the tutee. If tutor and tutee feel that the tutor can be of assistance then a meeting can be arranged to discuss the requirements and needs of the tutee and how the tutor proposes to work towards agreed achievable goals. If both parties are satisfied then a short initial series of lessons can be planned with a progress check and review to follow this before proceeding further.

She has been flexible when we have had to cancel or re-arrange a session, her costs are very reasonable and her communication is quick and comprehensive. She has also gone the extra mile to email suggested books and resources.
I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.
