I ensure a quality arrangement which fits around your needs and times.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have two years first hand tutoring experience and have tutored pupils of all ages.
Previous experience includes teaching a secondary after school drama class and helping vulnerable teens with their reading skills, and teaching English at a school for troubled children.
I'm a performer so I'm both confident and engaging. I have a life-long love of all things creative and have been involved with the arts from a very early age, including drama and piano playing.
As well as Masters in Literature and Creative Writing I have a genuine love of English and History, and spend much of my spare time reading, writing and visiting historic places.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
My sister was more happy with your sessions than two years of history at school, thank you so much for your help
