English student giving GCSE and A Level English tutoring in Cardiff, Merthyr and Rhymney Valley

Methodology

I am an English Literature undergraduate at Cardiff University seeking to tutor students in English literature and language at GCSE and A Level standard. I am passionate about literature and seek to encourage students to find the joy of literature through my tutoring. I believe that every student is capable of achieving success at English and therefore teach to fit the individual and how they best learn. As a tutor, I am motivated to help every student achieve the best they can and encourage them to believe in their own potential.

Experience

I am currently a teaching assistant at Staffroom Education alongside my degree, and have been doing this for the past three months. I have experience working with children through this and also teaching a children's choir in Abercynon. I enjoy teaching and sharing my own knowledge, and I once taught a journalism workshop at a UK summer camp for an hour session.
