English student offering lessons in English and any other English-oriented subjects (literature, creative writing etc.) in Scotland

Methodology

Firstly, I would spend some time getting to know the student, their interests and hobbies. I firmly believe in order to successful as a tutor, you need to find something you can both relate to, as it makes it easier on the student if they like their tutor, and don't dread being tutored, and also it helps the tutor tailor lessons to suit the students own skills, abilities and personality.

Experience

I am a recently graduated high school student with qualifications in advanced level English and French. Moving to the University of St Andrews in September to study English, I am happy to spend time helping you succeed in your own exams for English.
