English tutor in the Vale of Glamorgan/ Cardiff area specialising in GCSE/ A-Level.

Methodology

I adapt my lessons/ sessions to the individual. I like making things fun and easy to understand, especially if a pupil is uncertain on a subject/ topic. I'm very welcoming, and always am open to suggestions. I'm able to help with GCSE's and A-Level, but can do any educational level if needed.

Background

I've been tutoring pupils for their GCSEs and A-Levels since sixth form and leaving school. Many pupils I have helped with English and English Literature have achieve a grade C and above and proceeded to pursue the subject further. I am able to adjust my subject and teaching style to accommodate anyone and their learning needs.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £45
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £65

Details

My rates do vary depending on the level of education the pupil I'm tutoring is currently at, and the distance of my travel. All prices can be negotiated.

Lily's CV

I'm an incredibly hard working individual. I thrive in busy environments and can adapt to any and all situations, I developed this skill whilst working at Lush Cardiff during the busiest times of the year.
For a short two years, I attended the University of South Wales where I studied media through the medium ofWelsh. Welsh is my first language and I have been educated through a Welsh curriculum since the age of three. During my short time at university I was given the opportunity to become a presenter for a mini web series the university hosted. I also appeared on Radio Cymru multiple times talking about mental health, bullying and a variety of other issues that are relevant in today's society. I've featured on a few programs on S4C over the last three years and have had fantastic experience working in this field.
I am experienced in both retail and sales jobs, as well with creative and unique work such as the examples I've stated above. I am also a blogger so have had experience in self promoting, meeting deadlines and working / collaborating with others on time sensitive projects.

Additional Information:

I spent 6 months tutoring pupils at a local primary school in Barry. I helped develop their literacy and numeracy skills in an 'out-of-the-box' way which stimulated and encouraged the pupils to achieve the best possible outcome.

During my Sixth Form years, I tutored many pupils aged 11-16 on many subjects, but mainly English, History, Welsh, Media, Drama and any other subjects they felt I could help with.
