Experienced English tutor and English Literature graduate offering home and online lessons up to undergraduate level in Edinburgh

About the lesson

In me you will find a friendly, empathetic and patient educator who is entirely flexible in his approach. My goal is to find out what style of learning is most effective for my students, and tailor my lessons to their needs. I believe that good teaching is a learning opportunity for the teacher as well as the student.
Having studied English throughout my academic career, I have a strong understanding of my field, and of course an incredible enthusiasm for it. I am very familiar with both the Nat 5 and Higher English curriculum, and can provide specialist help with essay writing and creative portfolio work.
