- Classes Every student has a programme that is built just for them. They concentrate on getting to grips with topics that they are covering in school whilst also working on a parallel thread that is put together to fill any gaps that may exist in their core skills. * The MagiKats programme supports the Curriculum for Excellence. * More than tutor 'hot-housing' and more than learning by rote.
I take into account the background and interests of learners, tailoring lessons to suit not only the level of the learner, but also make lessons fun and engaging from the start. The best learning happens when students are enjoying the material and it's relevant to today's world, with current issues and topics at the heart of the lesson.

Perhaps the most significant aspect of my approach to teaching is the recognition that the most valuable outcome for any student is not only the acquisition of subject knowledge but the development of independent learning skills.
I believe learning should be fun and informative! I love sharing a good historical anecdote and using a variety of techniques to help learn and memorize. This is useful for all levels, but especially if you find studying just by reading chunks of text hard (like me). I'm not a fan of exams or tests, but short regular quizzes help determine how well you are learning something, so expect those.
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.
I approach each topic by getting a grasp on what the students' particular goals are, and then tailor-making our sessions to ensure that we reach them with time to spare! I'm friendly and patient, but I also require discipline from my students. The majority of the students that I have offered tutoring to have been high-school age, but I'm absolutely open to university level tutoring, too.
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.
My name is Marianne Wilson, and I am keen to help those with their English studies! Often at school, English can seem confusing, outdated or just plain boring. Through my enthusiasm and excitement, I can ignite an interest and understanding for all forms of literature. I also have a keen eye for detail, and can use this to fix pernickety grammar and language issues.
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.
First of all, I aim to make my students comfortable with the material and with me as tutor/teacher, ensuring they have a solid foundation we can build on to reach their goals. I work with students to identify objectives, encouraging them to aim high but stay realistic.
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.
I believe a good working environment for tutoring is one free of judgement. I prefer to work slowly, crafting each piece of work and the reviewing together. I have been tutoring for 5 years, mostly high school (Higher) students. Close reading practice and essay-writing are the main focuses of my work with students.
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.
Having gained both a Higher A, and Advanced Higher B's both in English and History I feel I will be able to guide anyone from around 1st Year to 6th year students looking to gain some help in this subject. I am a highly visual person so I would love to teach using mind maps and making the learning process as simple and fun as possible.
Fun, energetic and informative style with an emphasis on session goals and subject focus. As such my sessions are planned well in advance, organised and include differentiated work. The age range has been from 8-12 for tutoring and workshops and so I'm very comfortable teaching at a primary level for the time being but I am also happy to teach other ages.
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 a highly qualified secondary school teacher (French & Spanish), former assistant head teacher, author & public speaker. You, the student, are the focus and your progress according to your natural learning style is what we focus on to get you the results you desire.
Hi there! I'm a law student at the University of Edinburgh offering English lessons, including English Literature, to Primary, Secondary and GCSE students. I'm an easy going person with a great passion for sharing my excellent skills and knowledge in the English Language with others.
I generally focus my lessons around high school age students all the way through university level courses. My teaching methods and style really varies from student to student, because I try to tailor each lesson to the individual.
When helping a student I always ask what he/she knows, so I know where to start. From there on we build upon that knowledge, much like building blocks - One has to understand the foundation before one can build on top of it. This can especially be helpful when going though homework, assignments or their general participation in class.
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.
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.
I am able to give lessons to standard grade, higher and advanced higher level students in humanities and language subjects. My lesson structure is exam-prep focused guidance. Hoping to use my exam tricks to get you up to an A! i have found in my own experience of sitting exams in school was to write your essay in a way that allows a marker to check the boxes.
