Experienced and qualified teacher based in London providing English lessons to all

Methodology

The role of teaching takes on a broad responsibility of educating a student creatively, intellectually and emotionally. As a creative writer, with poetry and philosophy forming the backbone to my approach, I will be able to guide the student to cope with any anxieties, fears and apprehensions they may have when completing work. Pressure and stress can stall a person's ability to think. By being patient, forming an emotional connection and speaking to them about their lives outside of school I can potentially set the student up to cope with many challenges in the future. I have received excellent feedback from several long running tutees about my help in developing them as a human being in addition to their academic output leading to multiple referrals. I believe that tutoring should not just be a strict, orderly process, but an imaginative, fun and expansive learning curve. I get to understand a different person's attitudes and develop a bond of empathy to make the other person feel more secure in their environment.

Tutoring is a two way learning simulation as I improve my knowledge of the behaviour, moods, interests and personalities each individual has. I am especially proficient in the fields of creative writing, poetry and world literature, with a focus on divergent thinking and critical analytic skills.

Experience

My teaching experience stems from working in primary, secondary and summer schools in London. Over 1500 hours of tutoring have been clocked up; I have been involved in education for seven years and have been tutoring consistently over this period.

I have tutored over 30 students and taught hundreds across the various schools I have worked at. This covers a range of subjects and abilities from Key Stage 1 to A-Level, SEN/learning difficulties to high achieving students.

My students have gone on to achieve A grades in English GCSE and passed their entrance exams for grammar schools. They have also received excellent coaching with their creative writing and been awarded publication rights for their work.
