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.
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 Often at school, English can seem confusing, outdated or just plain boring.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.
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.

Hi! My name is Ieuan and I am a Higher/A Level and university level Tutor based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have always loved learning, and my skills and experience have given me a passion in helping others learn and achieve their potential.
My teaching method is online and I can help you with the work you are doing currently e.g. reading essays and explaining ideas and methods that are not understood and give advice that I have used.

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 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 think every individual learns differently, and the best approach is what works for each of us. Getting to know a student is important in helping them develop their potential, and my favorite part of the job.

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.
Because we are all different with different issues, first I want to understand how do you learn and which are issues in order to adapt my teaching to your need. Thanks to my experiences abroad, I developed some original way to improve our learning using new technologies and drama as part of my methodology.
Private tuition is offered for specific difficulties in phonics, spelling, comprehension, reading and dyslexia. An individualised program is devised for specific learning difficulties and areas of concern. Each multi-sensory lesson is aimed at working on a specific concept, sound and skill.
