Highly qualified English and Humanities teacher with thirty years of experience and fun based in Brighton.

Methodology

I use both modern cognitive methods and traditional tutoring to get the best results. Establishing a rapport, fostering motivation and a sense of the value and real life relevance of the what we do is key to starting out. After that comes hard work that is satisfying and fun.

Experience

I ran a school for seventeen years and taught English as a foreign language as well as the humanities. I've prepared students for exams in these fields up to A Level and then university level, especially mentoring those writing dissertations. Great success in grades and qualifications. My own are a bachelors in English Literature and a Masters in Educational Studies.
