I make every effort to ensure lessons are specifically tailored for each student, listening to both them and their parents' concerns. I teach face-to-face, and since lockdown I have been using both Skype and Zoom. I set clear targets for improvement which are shared and negotiated with the student, and I can set homework in order to support progress. My view is that my input must be designed to support mainstream school work, and where relevant to maximise exam performance. This means I am very happy to assist with school homework tasks, and to go through classwork that has proved tricky. the best way to succeed with students is to harness their motivation, and so I take pains to establilsh excellent relationships with every client.
I am a highly experienced and qualified former Assistant Head Teacher and Head of English Faculty with secondary, primary, special needs and Sixth Form experience - KS2, KS3, KS4 and AS/A2 English Language and Literature. I have been private tutoring for over 7 years to students of all ages and abilities, catering for children with autism, hearing impairment and dyslexia through to mature students and non-native speakers of English. I am fully conversant with all English/English Literature GCSE exam specifications, and with A-level specifications. I am also currently supporting a mature student with clarity of expression in writing her degree dissertation.
