Experienced English teacher engaging individuals in Education tutors at all key stages

Methodology

Exciting, engaging lessons designed to match your individual learning style from an experienced high school English, Literature, Drama and Performing Arts teacher; challenge, innovation, varied style of delivery, humour and creativity included.

I also train teachers at Post Graduate level to ensure the highest standard of teaching and Learning is being embedded from the start.

There are many different ways to achieve the highest outcomes. I will challenge, inspire and encourage with different tasks, detailed, relevant feedback and an open honest communication style.

Experience

I have taught for 23 years as an Advanced Skills teacher and Lead Practitioner. My results at GCSE, A-Level, Btec level 2 and 3 show students gaining at least 2 grades above target over the last 15 years. I don't leave any student behind, there are many creative and innovative ways to make sure each student in my class can achieve success at any level. Even if they give up, I don't.
