Personal Description:

I am a Cambridge DELTA and M.Ed. qualified teacher, with 20 years experience of classroom and one-to-one teaching and student support.

Tutoring Approach:

I am available to work with tutees on a range of possible learning needs. My recent experience can help tutees to pass exams: principally English GCSE and A Level and EFL qualifications such as FCE and IELTS.

I can review and critique written work at these and higher or professional levels and provide detailed written feedback (500 words or more) or discuss points for improvement in session or online. The improvement of speaking and listening skills has also been a major aspect of my professional work.

I am learner focused and love to develop ways of improving study skills, saving time and helping people to work independently.
