Experienced English Teacher / University Lecturer offers GCSE English Language and Literature and Online

Methodology

My older students are often exam focused so my priority is to teach them how to pass the exam hopefully in an interesting way that gives them some joy from studying English. I try to convey my enthusism for a beautiful subject that has given me the tools to tell stories and see the world from different perspectives. If you can use words you can conquer the world. With students who want to improve pronunciation and understanding or appreciate literature I begin from what they wants to get out of the sessions. I only teach one to one because I think students get better value having me to themselves. I sometimes teach in person but online is more convenient. Students will need access to Skype, a decent wifi connection and a computer with a decent microphone and speakers.
Learning should be fun not a chore.

Background

I have a degree in Education, I used to teach full time, experience of teaching KS2 KS3 GCSE A-Level English Language and Literature. I tutor adults, lecture in Universities. Tutoring privately for 10 years and have had over 200 students I mark GCSE exam papers, alongside this I work as a writer.
