Doctoral student with over 5 years' tutoring experience offering English and History

Methodology

I approach each topic by assessing a student's individual needs and goals. I make use of a variety of teaching methods and multimedia techniques. I typically divide my lessons into writing/speaking/listening exercises, to make certain that the student has fully grasped the subject-matter by engaging with it.

Experience

A friendly, versatile tutor, over 5 years experience

I am a Doctoral student in English Language and Literature at a Russel Group University. I hold an MA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies from University College London (2012), and a BA in English Language and Literature/History/Musicology (2009).

I am very passionate about my subjects and about teaching! I have worked as a private tutor in English language and literature, QTS English, creative writing, essay writing, technique and history across various ages and levels. My English tutoring has ranged from 7+ to University Level. I have also worked as a university English and linguistics tutor, and a primary school literacy tutor.

I have also worked as a sessional lecturer at CCCU, teaching on undergraduate modules.

I am patient, friendly and I always make sure that my lessons are fun and engaging as well as informative. I tailor my teaching approach according to each student's needs as every learning style is unique.

In the course of my ESL teaching, I also make sure that my students learn not just the language but also the relevant cultural background necessary for successful communication.
