- Do you have a personal message for students?
My tutoring style is adaptable and tailored to each person. At the younger end of the spectrum, I am to create a fun learning environment in order to bring out the creativity and confidence in each child. I enjoy showing young people that learning can be an adventure. At the primary and secondary level, I focus on building up self-belief and motivation to allow each student to reach their full potential and explore exciting new worlds. For more mature students, I also tailor my approach to suit the individual, mixing core concepts with more general study skills. I encourage each student to find their own way of independent learning. Goals, objectives and desired grades are identified at the beginning, followed by the creation of a tutoring schedule. I encourage students to come up with alternative ways of explaining things which may have been skated over previously/in class. Areas of weakness are identified and worked on throughout the course of tuition. Whatever your age, level or ability, I would be pleased to hear from you.
- What kind of experience do you have?
My teaching experience started in 1992 in Hong Kong, where I taught English Language. I now tutor children and adolescents between the ages of five and 18. I have a deep love of the English language, and of History.
I have three children of my own (now aged 14, 16 and 17), and I have tried to instil in them a love of reading. My students include two brothers who were born profoundly deaf, for whom English is a second language. With patience, empathy and understanding I am helping them to master the language.
I have had two books published (I am currently working on a third), and I have also worked as a professional proof-reader and editor.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a CRB disclosure certificate.
