I believe in teaching being a dialogue in which the teacher's role is to facilitate the conversation and build on the student's confidence and critical understanding of the world creating a lasting impact not only on the subject that I teach but in all areas of their study and life.
I'm passionate about developing students skills through coaching their self-confidence, enthusiasm and engagement with the subject taught. I believe that it's a key to students academic improvement.
I have been trained in non-formal educational methods whilst working abroad as live skills and English tutor in Tanzania (3 month placement). It's a teaching style focused on involving the students as much as possible making them actually learn, remember and be able to critically evaluate the material rather than just being talked at.
From this point I went on to teach for 2 months in Bali and continued tutoring for over a year since coming back to UK. I have learned huge adaptability - having worked with huge (up to 120 students), classes of mixed English ability level, working with small kids (as young as 4) and working with students with learning difficulties (ADHD short-term memory problems).
My main subject is English Literature however I'm confident covering all the core subjects up to the GCSE level. I usually advice parents who want their children tutored in more than one subject to pick one focus area and then add on subjects as the time goes on.
I do discounted rates for siblings/small groups that can be taught on the same or very close level.
I'm happy to offer discounted rates for small groups at the same / similar level. Lesson cancellation needs to happen at least 3h before the class starts.
Aggie has been tutoring my son in maths - what a lovely, caring and patient person. I have incredible progress both in my son's results and attitude.
Aggie has been an incredible tutor having taught be both how to find complex ideas in literature but also how to bring them back into an essay. Some of the most interesting lessons I ever had. I have been tutored by Aggie for over 6 months now, 100% recommend.
