I have been teaching for several years and many of my students have achieved better Grades than those predicted for them. I started tutoring English 1-2-1 in September 2017 for 8 hours a week at a good school near Fareham. Before teaching in Secondary Education I successfully prepared many adult overseas students for their Cambridge First and Advanced Certificates in EFL at Richard Language School in Bournemouth and then at Bournemouth University. I have also taught Business English and ESOL.
PROFILE An experienced English Teacher, awarded OFSTED Grade 1, I now work as a GCSE English Tutor preparing Year 11 students at a school near Fareham for their Exams. Very patient and supportive, I quickly established a good rapport with each of my students and gained their trust. Focused on developing their confidence and level of independence in their learning, I ensure that my students find their lessons rewarding and enjoyable. With their sound understanding of the texts and poems and of how to analyse effectively the writers’ use of language, my students are preparing to do well in their GCSE English exams.
