Experienced English tutor with Masters and Degree in English literature and language - based in Leicester

Methodology

I am a fully-trained tutor with two years experience teaching English to Primary, Secondary, GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate students. I have a masters and a first-class degree in English from the University of Leicester and work at a tutorial centre, meaning that I am up-to-date with the current curriculum. I aim to inspire students to love literature and language! My lessons are tailored to suit every individual. I am happy to travel to you if you live in the area, or you can travel to me for a reduced price.

Background

I have been tutoring for two years, both privately and for a tutorial centre where I teach classes of up to six students. Privately I am available to teach one or two students per lesson and am happy to conduct parental feedback sessions if requested. I have experience teaching undergraduates, A-Level, GCSE and years 3-9. All of the students I taught last year exceeded their expected grades.

Tutorial Reference:

Belgrave Tutorial Centre, Leicester (2015 – present)
English and Maths tutor
• Over the last two years I have tutored a wide range of age groups in English and maths in classes of six students; at the end of the 2015/2016 academic year I was teaching years five, seven, GCSE and A-Level. This shows my employer’s confidence in my ability to simultaneously complete tasks which require different skills.
• Younger and older children require very different learning and behaviour management strategies, but I am able to adapt my skills to suit these purposes without losing any of the quality of my lessons.
• I write detailed lesson plans, researching the curriculum topic and devising interesting lessons to keep the students engaged. I bring in extra-curricular material to challenge or support students who were above or below the class average.
