Hi! I'm Katie, and am offering tutoring in KS3 - GCSE English. My teaching methods can be adapted to the students needs, but it is typically a combination of audio, visual and practical learning. I focus on providing constructive feedback, positive reinforcement and growing confidence in the students ability.
I am happy to tutor anyone who's studying for GCSE or A Level English (language, literature or combined). My teaching method will depend on the student. I am very adaptable and i know how hard it can be to keep interested within class.
My teaching methods are based on the individual child and their respective syllabuses. Lessons structures will be one to one and can take any form from helping with homework to covering topics that children are struggling with in school. I work closely with parents and children to understand their aims and what they would like their child to achieve during our lessons.
I'm a big believer in making the learning as exciting and engaging as possible. Children learn best when they are interested and enjoying their learning. To ensure this, I use a wide range of resources and methods to explain concepts, making it as easy to understand as possible.
I have just finished my first year of an Undergraduate English Language and Literature degree at the University of Oxford, and have really enjoyed it. My love for English is huge, and I have tutored others around my area previously having received brilliant results such as an A* at A level for one of my students.
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.
My teaching method is to test the students upon first meeting them to identify problem areas and then build activities and demonstrations on such topics to build and test the students understanding at various intervals. If there is no improvements, then alternative activities and methods will be introduced.
I prepare and tailor tuition to the student at whatever level, ensuring sessions are enjoyable and informative. I firmly believe enjoyment and challenge are the keys to success; I strive to engender my passion for all the subjects I teach.
My teaching methodology varies according to the needs of each pupil. I often tutor one to one, sometimes I tutor in pairs.
My teaching method focuses on developing confidence in exam performance by giving detailed explanation of exam structure and analysing example exam papers. I aim to provide real life and up to date examples of high level work and will work with my student to build up to a higher grade by setting weekly goals and small tests to monitor achievement.
My teaching method covers all aspects - oral, written & practical for all students. I make sure that my lessons are fun, interactive and informative all at the same time. I base my teaching and my lessons on Core Topics of a particular subject such as English/Maths; and furthermore, on specific topics my students most struggle with, to help and benefit their learning.
I can give English lessons at a primary, high-school and/or college level, to those who love the subject and want to improve or to those that struggle with it and need that extra push to help them achieve what they wish to achieve.
My teaching method is fairly simple: I take time to understand the students' weak points and focus on improving those through practice and good quality feedback. I base each lesson on what the student failed to achieve in the previous lesson or what they struggled with the most.
Hello! I've just finished my first year studying English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford, and am hoping to spend the summer vacation tutoring those who want help with both English and the Oxbridge entrance process. It's definitely a cliché, but nothing makes me more enthusiastic than reading and discussing literature.
I prefer for tutees to pose the questions as a form of active learning, rather than listening or being lectured at on a topic, active engagement with considered and effective prompting allows tutees to realize their own potential and to engage with the material in a far better way
I have completed my A levels and I would like to help 11+ students, GCSE and A level students (for English, Biology and Classical Civilisation). I am friendly and like visual tools learner and incorporate this within my lessons. I use practice papers and the new syllabus structure to plan my lessons.
I will study past papers done by the student and highlight areas for improvement, then focus on these key areas using exam board resources. Tuition will be relaxed; progress will be made without excessive intensity. Clear, tried and tested advice will be given and written down so that progress is not lost.
I formulate plans and classes focusing on the student's issue with the subject and try and find a solution that personally suits the student. I will constantly be checking and reviewing the student's work in order to ensure their progress.
My teaching method is to break any given subject down until it clicks for the subject being taught. Many teachers seem to take subjects to levels of intricacy that are pointless when the student has failed to grasp basic concepts about their subject and what is required of them in examination.
I focus on the areas the student struggles with the most and build on these weaknesses until they become a strong factor, I also teach the student to expand their answers within a unique approach as well as teach them how to write in a sophisticated manner as required for English related examinations.
Fun, exciting, engaging, discussion work, scaffolding questions, snowballing and teaching backwards - no death by powerpoint here! Want a tutor that's not all about boring worksheets? I can offer engaging sessions, using a range of teaching methods. I am all about creating challenges and boosting mindsets.
I base my classes on a mutual understanding of respect and trust. I aim to create a peaceful work environment whilst maintaining a good standard of work and progression. As a tutor who has worked closely with children, I understand what is necessary to make a child feel confident in what they produce as well as guiding them on the road to success.
During my tutoring sessions I aim to provide a stimulating learning environment and to facilitate my students’ academic development. The key to this sustained progress, in my opinion, is maintaining high expectations of them and myself. In my sessions I always look to share the learning objectives based on student’s personal needs and provide constructive feedback.
I teach by assessing the student's individual needs. For example with French, I ascertain whether their weak areas are with reading or writing or oral, and more specifically with grammar or with vocabulary. I then devise teaching plans that will be unique, enjoyable, and instructive for the student and will allow them to achieve their potential.
I have extensive experience and success in literacy intervention with a specialism in handwriting improvement, spelling, reading and comprehension improvement. I currently work at Dyffryn Comprehensive School with Years 7 and 8. I promote reading to improve learning and run intervention lessons in reading and comprehension skills, handwriting and spelling.
Sessions are tailor-made to meet each student's needs (e.g. pace, learning style, areas for learning that require attention etc). A relaxed approach with a sense of humour enables students to develop both skills and confidence. I mainly focus on KS1 and KS2 level of skills and knowlege because if the fundamental skills are not secure this can impact on further learning.
I am fun loving and empathetic. My lessons are always based on precision teaching and tailored specifically to my students learning style.
I am available to teach anyone from primary school through to college and will personalise lessons to suit my individual students. I am very patient and well organised and prepare a variety of tasks and ideas to help improve your grades.
I am very flexible as to what you would like to get out of the lessons and my teaching style can be based around the way that you learn the best. This can be through written or oral exercises, practice essays, going over grammar, etc. I am open to giving lessons via the internet.
I give lessons to anyone aged 11 or over; in particular, I work well with people who are struggling, as I have a patient, friendly nature and love to help students make progress. I like to work with students to identify areas of development and create resources to help scaffold the student and rapidly encourage progress.
