Glasgow-based English student. Can tutor all levels of high school English as well as French (up to and including National 6).

Methodology

I am a second year student studying English and Journalism and Creative Writing at The University of Strathclyde. Last year, I also studied French as part of my course. SQA Qualifications I have include As in Advanced Higher English and in Higher French, History, and English.
I am willing to tutor secondary school pupils in any of the above subjects. This could include help with essay structure and close reading and for older pupils, helping to understand the literature they are studying and proofreading and helping with folio essays; however, my teaching is adaptable to suit personal needs.

Background

During my final year of high school, I was involved in a mentoring program where I tutored three Higher English students who struggled with the methodology used by their class teachers. All three pupils passed the course well against expectations. I have also proofread many essays for basic grammar and spelling as well as content. I also helped in a first year art class so have experience with younger pupils too.

Relevant skills and qualities
• In my current job at Greaves and my previous job as a waitress, good communication and establishing rapport with customers was of utmost importance. I have good communication skills and work well with others.
• My time tutoring pupils for Higher English also helped my ability to communicate with others and taught me how to explain things from different perspectives in order to aid their understanding.
• As I have been through the current CfE Scottish Education System and tutored pupils through it, I have a good understanding of what is required of the pupils for their exams.
• Throughout my time at school, university, and work, I have maintained excellent attendance with no latecomings or unexplained absences, showing that my timekeeping can be relied upon.
