My passion is for bringing subjects to life for students so that instead of learning facts they are able to take the stories into their tests, ensuring a higher level of success. I take a holistic approach to my students so that I am able to help them achieve their goals by supporting their existing strengths whilst helping to hone and refine areas that challenge them.
My teaching method is based on making sure that the student becomes completely confident on their ability to write a strong and comprehensive analysis, or creative piece. Each student needs to feel that their thoughts and understanding of the world is valid and valued.
I believe learning is best facilitated by engagement and discussion. Each lesson will follow a loose model: For Literature lessons: -A discussion about the primary text being studied. -A short critical reading related to the primary text. -Discussion about the critical reading, and the primary text. For Creative Writing: -A short reading about the topic (ie.
Experience of teaching 1-2-1 and groups from adult literacy up to speech writing and presentation skills for the United Nations. In a journalism career of more than 18 years I have learned all disciplines and genres. I'm engaging and confident - and can transmit the latter to the pupil.
I believe that everybody has creativity inside of them. Creativity is deeply connected to who we are and most importantly who we can be, our vocation and our strengths. It is the source of confidence which is vital to an open mind and the success of learning.
My passion for teaching English is undimmed after over forty years experience. I gained my Graduate Teaching Certificate in 1970 and have been involved in developing communication skills ever since, mainly with Secondary School pupils but more recently with adult foreign students.
I give lessons to GCSE and A Level students studying for qualifications in English Language and English Literature. I am known for my relaxed yet attentive teaching style, and I understand the importance of creating a safe and open environment with the student in order that academic success can be comfortably attained.
I'm an experienced print/online/broadcast journalist and abookworm with background in English. I hold an MA in English Literature and language, where my final assignment was a Creative Writing one, and another MA in Journalism and Mass Communcation. I now freelance as a journalist, travel writer, translator, web content editor and social media manager and have self-published a travel book.
I specialise in secondary English language and literature up to Advanced Higher. I work closely with the student to identify their strengths and weaknesses and will tailor individualpupil centred lessons according to their needs. whether it be technical accuracy, critical thinking, research or generating ideas. My manner is warm, friendly and approachable.
My teaching method is one to one readings of texts, with a focus on text interpretation, and close reading. Through discussion and debate, I teach how to get through to the subtext, and increase confidence in handling difficult passages. I shall also help structure and give feedback on essays and creative writing.
My teaching method is to include a range of different activities. I like to approach lessons online as I would teaching in a classroom; modelling, scaffolding, giving examples and making my own content so lessons are lively and engaging. I feel it's important to continually assess students' progress as I teach them so that lessons can be personalised.
My lessons will be very much based on each students' needs. I can do anything from proofreading work and commenting on grammar and structure, to giving tips and lessons on specific coursework, and formats including rhetoric, comparative commentary and analysis, as well as perfecting oral presentations.

I am methodical and patient and I will ensure that we go at your pace and that at each step along the way you are comfortable and following the content. I am flexible and understand that everyone is different and learns at a different pace.
I believe teaching is all about engagement, and student involvement. I strive to provide you with the knowledge and tools to get and A+ on that assignment, but to solve problems on your own. Lessons will be be instructional, but based on a guided inquiry model. The first 5 - 10 mins will be dedicated to an explanation of the issues and struggles you have encountered with the assignment.
My teaching methodology would revolve around you; I am open to whatever would help you best. I can offer feedback and advice on an essay you are working on, help you plan essays, give you mock-exam questions or we could just brainstorm and discuss a book you are studying.
My tutoring experience is with children aged 8-14, but I am looking to tutor anyone between primary school age and A-levels.
My teaching methodology is always student centered. I believe mutual respect is key to building an effective teacher-student relationship. I like to focus on the needs of the student by having the student communicate directly with me and building rapport.
I'm a patient teacher and believe in finding a way to learn that suits the individual. I'll go at a pace that suits you, and tailor classes to your personal needs whether that's writing a folio for Higher English or improving general spelling, grammar, and reading comprehension.

I begin any teaching process by making a student feel comfortable and identifying their weaknesses and strengths, from there we can achieve their goals and (more importantly) attain the required grades. I understand that not every individual has a natural affinity for English as a subject, but I believe that every student is capable of achieving an impressive grade in English.
I like to have quite a relaxed teaching style and build a relationsip with my students.

I am an S5 in Edinburgh and would like to help tutor children in any levels under what I have done. I have lots of notes and help sheets, so can help guide your child through their school year and hopefully improve their skills, in an interesting way. I can adapt well to different teaching methods and try to tailor lessons to best fit your child's learning style.
For a few years now I have been tutoring students in different subjects and with different needs (10 to 17 y.o.), which has taught me that there isn’t one method that works for everyone. It is really important for me to follow a student over time and understand what works best for them.
I can help with GCSE, A-level and IELTS exam preparation. Based on the approach introduced above, I provide a series of tutorials to give your revision a boost.
My methodology changes based on the student whom I am teaching. If I am tutoring, for example, a medium sized group, a lot of imagination and 'what next' work is very useful. If I am working with an individual on proofing their writing, then becoming more involved with their writing is the best way to aid them.
I am currently undertaking a PGDE Secondary qualification in English teaching and recently graduated with MA Hons in English Literature. I am happy to tutor all school ages and abilities. Depending on the required focus, close reading, creative writing exercises, essay planning, exam preparation or reading practice can be pursued.
I am a student in my 3rd year of my English Literature and History of Art degree at the University of Edinburgh.
