I have always been deeply passionate about English language and literature, I'm sure I could read before I could walk! I obviously have my favourites, but I will read and analyse every and any book put in front of me. I have written more short stories than I've had hot meals, and am currently working on my debut novel (among several other pet projects).
Although I have never personally taught a class, I have been tutoring my siblings for years and have always kept a calm and approachable manner, I believe it is important to show the student that they are not wrong, but need direction and a different approach to looking at things in order to help them make sense of the situation.
I will tutor from GCSE to undergraduate level in Creative Writing and English Literature. For philosophy and art history, I'll tutor for GCSE and A Level. I'd also tutor in Creative Writing if you're looking to start writing and you're not sure where to start or you'd like a little more academic knowledge without going for an official course or qualification.
I've been tutoring for years and am well qualified and equipped to tutor anything from reading and writing improvement to CV assistance. I am based in Cardiff however am more than happy to tutor remotely and cater to the needs of whomever I'm tutoring.
It is important to initially identify each student's individual strengths and possible weaknesses. I believe that it is important to set targets in order to overcome areas of study that may need polishing or revising to set student's up for achieving the best of their potential. In turn, we will tackle these targets set through learning methods appropriate to each individual's needs.
I approach my teaching according to each student's needs and set out a plan for what they hope to achieve. From becoming more confident in reading and writing skills to approaching critical theories and applying them to text. I can also help to develop individual thought and how to express it in an academic style.
I will give lessons to those who need it, however preferably people younger than 15. In order to teach them to the point of improvement to mine and their satisfaction I will either colour code the level that they are on(for younger or new to English students) or use h,l,a (higher, lower and average) accompanied by what level I think they are at.
Working one to one to gain the best results and progression. Lessons are tailored to individuals and are reflected upon after each session. Homework is set following on from lessons. A fun-filled approach to support the learning.
My teaching method is very much based on building confidence. English is a subject where many students do not feel confident to explore their abilities. I believe confidence comes with independence and I structure my sessions with this in mind. I believe I am there to prompt and encourage rather than instruct and direct.
MY teaching method is to get to know my pupils to understand which method is best suited to them. I like to build a rapport with pupils and make lessons interesting whilst also concentrating on content. I like lessons to be structured but with an informal nature.
Hi, i'm a 19 year old student studying Law at Cardiff University. I tutor lessons for those studying English GCSE and above. I aim to make my lessons exciting and engaging as I feel this is the most efficient way to learn. We will work our way through the exam specifications, focusing on areas of weakness in order to achieve your potential. Also happy to tutor first year law students.
Teaching is individual so I prefer to work one-to-one or in small groups. In this scenario I can meet the learners' needs. If you understand through lecturing - I will lecture, if you understand and grasp that concept better through images - I will have PowerPoints and visuals - I've even been known to use a puppet! Students determine how I teach and whatever it takes, I will do it.
I am a recent graduate, studying a Masters in English and Creative Writing. Nominated top ten poet of 2012, I am also able to tutor poetry and any other form of written expression, including academic essays. Lesson structure is adapted to student, but to inspire creativity and passion within the literary area. Lessons can be tailored to suit students of all ages and abilities.
Hi! I am a Cardiff University student studying Philosophy, an avid writer and active contributor to the University newspaper. Having obtained straight A to A* grades as GCSE, I aim to help pupils reach their goals by creating the kind of friendly, encouraging and supportive setting that was key to my learning during GCSEs.
I base my lessons on work that I have previously done before and worksheets as well as textbooks depending on the subject. Using PowerPoint is vital especially for activities that the child could participate in.
- Classes Standard Membership - - Up to 2 tuition sessions per week. - Mapped to the National Curriculum. - A maths and English course created for your child's individual needs. - Parent feedback at the end of every session. - Regular in-depth Parent Meetings to discuss your child's progress. - No booking required - attend at any time during our opening hours.
I adapt my approach to the individual student so work on a case by case basis, using factors such as how the student learns and their personality, as well as addressing what stage they are at (GCSE, A level) in order to tailor my technique and method.
