Illustration graduate offering reading and creative writing enhancement studies, proof reading services

Methodology

My creative background provides a good base from which to plan engaging lessons that both educate and captivates students. Working predominantly with key stage 2, I have had the opportunity to inspire students in those early stages, when individuals are beginning to take a real interest in the content of classes.

Experience

Working within local schools has enabled me to build upon my knowledge of tutoring, and provide unique classroom sessions for students with varying skillsets.
My university degree have required me to engage in the academic skills unit, to better the writing abilities of both myself and my coursemates. Through peer assessment exercises, and the submission of dissertations and other written pieces, I have developed a knowledge of what is expected at this level.
