English and English (Foreign Language) Tuition in Fleet

I focus on preparing students for their GCSE and making sure they pass according to their potential. I specialise in helping those who don’t really love English and I really enjoy seeing them improve and gain in confidence.** I am nearly always full but can perhaps squeeze in students with some flexibility**. I have been teaching English for 25 years and tutoring English with an agency and privately since 2017. I can support students throughout school or just with intensive exam focus in year 11. Students are welcome to come as regularly as they like with no obligation. I have a husband, two teenage children, and a cat who tries to sit on the table during lessons. I can do remote lessons by Skype if necessary.

Tutoring Experience

I teach up to GCSE English and have knowledge of poetry, Macbeth, Lord of the Flies, Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde , An Inspector Calls, Romeo and Juliet, and A Christmas Carol. I have achieved passes for all my students up till now. I know the new GCSE specifications and how marks are awarded and will work out how my students can achieve more marks. I have taught in Japan, Singapore, Italy and Moscow and gained the top grade in my teaching qualification, only attainable by 1% of teachers.

Tutoring Approach

I have a gentle approach which is intuitive, and empathetic. My aim is to build confidence as well as knowledge to help all students achieve their potential. I have a lot of handouts I have written that cover the gcse syllabus that accompany my lessons and can be used for revision. This include essential quotes, exam tips and practice questions.
