Methodology

I like to work with the student to find out what they struggle with and tailor their tuition to their needs. You should also recap everything they need to know, so there are no gaps in their knowledge. Also, positivity is the key to succeeding and that is the motto I go by. I think learning is the best and we can have so much fun learning together! Don't be nervous, I am here to help. It's okay if you make mistakes because that is how we learn. Just keep calm and keep smiling! You can do this and I can't wait for us to get started!

Experience

Hello! My name is Mehak! I studied Criminology and Psychology at university and now work as an English tutor and ESL teacher. I have always had a passion for English Language and Literature, and always got the highest marks in school. Creative writing is one of my favourite things to do and I love reading too. I can be a bit of a stickler for correct grammar and punctuation, which makes this job perfect for me. I have been a volunteer and private tutor of English, both academic and general, for over 6 months now. I can honestly say that there is nothing else I would rather do than teach others how to speak English.
