I love teaching and tutoring, and tailor all my sessions towards the individual student. It can be difficult to get the support you need in classrooms, especially at the moment, so I'm here to provide one on one guidance to help you improve your grades and foster passion for your subject!
I believe that empathy is one of the most important skills to have as a tutor. Many years ago, I received private tutoring when I needed more help than I could find in the classroom; I know how invaluable this extra support can be. I am highly qualified in my field now but I remember the feeling of having difficulty with new concepts or struggling with assessments. I am here to support and guide you to feel more confident in all areas of English.
My approach will be guided by you. After discussing the areas in which you would like to improve, I will develop a plan based on your needs and skills level. Together we will work towards securing a marked development of your skills and knowledge. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
