I aim to tailor all lessons to students' particular requirements, concentrating on those areas where assistance seems most necessary. Producing regular written work is integral to my approach, along with the development of good comprehension skills and confident textual analysis.
I am an English graduate who has worked as an independent English tutor for over 30 years. I work primarily as an artist and art project co-ordinator, but I write poetry and produce plays as well as regularly tutor English
