Creative Writing and English Literature graduate offering English and Writing Tutoring in London

Methodology

I am someone who likes to use different approaches for different students, I am adaptable in my style but in terms of methodology I prefer to use creative methods such as free writing tasks and memory and recall games to help students. I also like to pre-prepare certain activities or tasks to help pupils the maximum amount when going through our lessons.

Background

I am a graduate of Creative Writing and English Literature who is embarking on her PGCE year in September. I have a vast history in tutoring students of all ages, I've been tutoring in groups for up to four years and I am very well acquainted with different areas of the national curriculum. I have worked with students of various levels including student's with learning difficulties and I am really passionate about teaching.
