English Literature and Educational Psychology graduate offering English courses based in Cardiff

Methodology

My teaching methods are based on a combination of my own experiences as an English Literature student and the epistemology I studied for my Educational Psychology minor. As such, I believe in a dialogue between the student and tutor, meaning that every lesson differs based on the person(s) involved. I use a combination of course texts, open-source study material, and hands-on proofreading in order to ensure that my students are being directly supported.

Background

I am an English Literature graduate from McGill University, a world-renowned University located in Montreal, Canada. I have been tutoring regularly since my first year of high school, and also studied Educational Psychology as a minor during University. I've followed mainly individual students, but am open to tutoring classes of more than one.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
