Experienced and fully qualified secondary English teacher gives English lessons to secondary school pupils at home

I am currently working as a secondary school English teacher in North London and have experience tutoring in London and abroad. I work with students aged 11-16, preparing them for their GCSEs; this includes studying a range of novels, plays, poetry and non-fiction texts, as well as doing creative writing.

As with my lessons in schools, my approach to tutoring is creative but clear. I always make sure I fully establish and outline each student's individual goals and ambitions in the subject so that I am able to ensure their success and progress. At the same time, I want them to enjoy their learning and choose to develop it further themselves, so I devote time to open conversation and questioning around the subject and look for opportunities to incorporate their own interests into lessons wherever possible.

I teach school english, school support, creative writing, test prep, modern literature. For the level(s)secondary, GCSE.
I give lessons in person, at the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.

Aysha Sinead's Experience

I have been teaching for almost three years now, and most of my experience has been with students aged 11-18 in English lessons. The size of classes I have taught has normally ranged from 25-30 students although I have also taught smaller classes and tutored students one-to-one in London, as well as Vietnam and Thailand (where I worked as an ESL teacher and tutor). As a result of my teaching, students have achieved and surpassed their target grades in their English GCSEs and iGCSEs.

Aysha Sinead's CV

I am an enthusiastic and creative teacher of English Literature and Language with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as well as prior experience working in a diverse range of schools in both London and abroad. My adaptability and empathy are coupled with a proactive, conscientious and professional approach to teaching which engages, stimulates and inspires students.
