I have extensive experience in tutoring pupils aged 5 to 12 years. Enthusiastic and engaging, I take a close interest in each student and tailor my lessons to meet their individual needs and interests. I travel to the student's home and am available Mon to Fri (except Tues) during after school hours. My lessons cover all aspects of the Curriculum for Excellence currently used in Scottish schools.
My teaching method is to approach topics simply and slowly so the person I am demonstrating to understands and learns at their own pace.
I have experience in teaching English literature A-Level classes, and in leading critical thinking classes to pupils aged 12-18. I have also tutored Oxbridge hopefuls in interview practise.
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 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.

I am a primary teacher with experience teaching English as an additional language and working with a range of ages, abilities, and needs. I am offering lessons tailored to your specific needs. I ensure good relationships with my students as a positive learning environment is the most productive one.
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 have a personable approach to teaching which helps my students to feel relaxed during our sessions. I like to challenge students by having them answer their own questions with some prompting and honing their inference skills so they are able to derive answers for themselves.
I approach each topic with mind maps and colour in order for my students to remember important information easier. Teaching methods may vary depending on the student's ideal learning techniques. I like to bring as much fun as possible in order to not stress the student.
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 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.
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...up to you! Some people prefer to be driven into a very focused approach, whilst others learn better through visual aids and fun activities. I tailor each lesson to a plan and style agreed with the student beforehand.

A self-motivated and conscientious multilingual Classics student at the University of Edinburgh, with a passion for the Arts and Humanities.
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.

I am a Final Year Literature student at the University of Edinburgh with a background in Classical and Modern Literature, specialising in contemporary UK based literature studies. I prefer to take a student-led approach to my lessons, establishing in early sessions where the pupil requires the most amount of work to build the strongest foundations for learning.
I am a student in my 3rd year of my English Literature and History of Art degree at the University of Edinburgh. Having struggled with dyslexia at school, I initially thought I would not be able to study English Literature, but I have found methods of learning which I would love to share with other students through tutoring.
I am an enthusiastic and experienced tutor offering private lessons in English, geography, and music to all levels, and in other subjects to school level. As a tutor, I am patient, fun, and flexible. Lessons are always driven by the needs of the student - in terms of timetabling, content, and pace - and I am very familiar with the curricula of different courses and subjects.
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.
