My teaching style is flexible and responsive. No two learners are the same and I believe that in order to get the best work out of each and every student, it is imperative to adapt lessons to engage each student and help target any areas they may struggle in. I pride myself on having an enthusiastic approach and positive energy and use bespoke resources to help students face their sometimes daunting entrance exams with a great deal of confidence.
I have been working as a professional tutor for the past two years. I specialise in 11/13+ prep and English Language/Literature. Over the past few years I have worked with both British and ESL learners and have placed students in top establishments that include Harrow and Queen Ethelburga's of York. Alongside tutoring, I work as a copywriter and journalist and have even had a couple of plays commissioned and professionally produced in theatres across the UK.
English Tutor - Academic Summer - 2016 – Present
Whilst working with Academic Summer, I have prepared a number of international students for their common entrance exams. I have taught English at all levels, alongside interview technique, verbal reasoning skills and non-verbal reasoning skills. The levels of language proficiency have varied greatly between my students, making a flexible and responsive teaching style essential. I am confident that I rose to this challenge, having watched each and every one of my students pass their 11+ and 13+ entrance exams and generally develop at an impressive pace.
English Tutor – Simply Learning Tuition – 2018 – Present
This year I have been working with a number of native speaking students, helping to improve their English skills and to prepare them for common entrance exams and GCSEs. My students vary in ages and skill sets, so a flexible and adaptive teaching style has been imperative. Feedback from all pupils and families continues to be very positive and I am confident that my friendly, yet insightful approach greatly benefits each of my student’s individual growth when tackling comprehension and essay writing.
