English Degree Graduate from the Reading area specializing in Essay building and completion

Methodology

My approach to tutoring is to break down each area required to gain qualifications from essay writing to revising for exams. Tutoring is something I feel passionate about with the desire to help students achieve their goals. The methods I have used in gaining my Degree can be transferred and adapted to suit any students studying English from GCSE to University level.

I have also used the skills obtained to help friends and colleagues with editing Business related material such as articles for publication and internal announcements.

Due to the experience I have had of distance learning I feel I will be able to teach any students studying in their spare time.

There would be preparation done on my part once contact has been made with the student to ensure the first lesson can begin as I mean to go on with total focus on the subject at hand.

Experience

I am an English Graduate with a Degree in Language and Literature. I gained my Degree with the Open University studying in my spare time.

I am fairly new to tutoring professionally but feel the experience and skills I have gained will be of great benefit to any student looking to study in their spare time. I have tutored to the children of friends and family on a private basis to help them out while gaining experience myself. I have also tutored friends and colleagues in business areas such as internal emails and while they have been studying business courses.

I am very patient as I understand that with the subject of English there is not always a right or wrong answer but the need to explain and back up your answer with any relevant examples.

Brendan 's CV

I am a passionate devotee of English with a Degree in English Language and Literature.

Various projects within Business including helping editing articles for an Thermodynamic company.

Tutoring children of friends and family privately as well as helping friends and colleagues with any areas of English they are working on.

I can adapt the skills gained in getting my Degree to help any students of English. In particular I specialise in essay writing from planning to structure and to building towards the all important word count.

The experience I have from studying in my spare time is something I would be able to share with any students also studying in their own free time.

Very impressed indeed!!

Brendan was a fantastic asset when completing a particular tricky dissertation for my MBA.
Not only did he proof read it for grammatical errors, he also helped me structure in a much more professional and succinct way.
He has a very amiable manner and I would highly recommend him as a personal tutor.

Brendan is a very patient and understanding tutor. He explains things in a very easy and uncomplicated manner. Very easy to talk to and makes you feel at ease whilst learning comfortably.

Brendan was a great help when I was writing my essay assignments for my Business Degree. The knowledge he had of putting together an essay for his own Degree was invaluable in helping me to complete mine. Any student at any level would benefit from Brendan’s tutoring.

N
Nigel

While Brendan was in my employment he managed to gain his Degree in English. During this time he balanced his work with studying successfully. Brendan was always willing to discuss his studying with me and his other colleagues during what would have been for him a busy time of life. We were all glad when he finished his studying with a pass.
