Enthusiastic and patient Creative Writing graduate teaching English and Maths in Manchester

Methodology

I'm an enthusiastic teacher with a patient approach to learning. I teach at a pace that suits the individual to ensure that everything is thoroughly understood.

In terms of experience, I have recently just finished tutoring a GCSE student English Language and Literature in preparation for his exams. After initial testing, I could see that he lacked confidence in the subject and this reflected in his style of writing, his knowledge of the curriculum and most importantly his predicted grade. Having been given only two months to change this, we had to work both quickly and efficiently to ensure a passing of his exams and a secured place at the college in which he had applied. In two short months, we managed to change his predicted grade from an E to a high level B,

Background

I graduated from Sheffield Hallam University, where I studied Creative Writing. From the three years, I obtained a 2:1 and vastly improved my knowledge of multiple forms of writing including poetry, prose, Scriptwriting and non-fiction which I am able to teach with confidence, as well as literature.

I have been teaching English and Maths at various levels for the last 3 years. Throughout this time I have mainly taught GCSE and below. I can teach most elements of English up to degree level and within Maths, I can teach up to GCSE.
