I focus on improving the confidence and written abilities of my students, using a range of engaging resources and encouraging students to push themselves in their reading and writing in order to achieve the best results they can.
For my GCSE and A-Level students, the focus is on exam technique and familiarisation with the mark scheme of each exam board, ensuring that individuals fully understand what is being asked of them in order to improve their grades.
I am a smiley, friendly tutor and all of my lessons are tailored to the needs of each individual student. I aim to create a safe environment for students to address the areas of their learning that need additional support. I set weekly homework and my marking time is included in my price. All I ask of my students is to try their best in our lessons, complete all homework by the deadlines and to update me on any issues they are having with their English work at school or college.
My lessons are inclusive and LGBTQI+ friendly.
I have been tutoring for over three years now and have helped students of a variety of ages and abilities. I have a 100% pass rate and have helped many students go from achieving C-D grades to A*-B grades and I am happy to provide references from current and past students. Overall, I have tutored students from the ages of 12-18 in English Language, English Literature and English as an additional language.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic I am only offering online tutoring through Skype but this has not proven an issue for any of my current students.
Once lockdown restrictions ease I will begin offering both online and in person lessons again. I am based in Swansea, have car access and am willing to travel.
I will graduate this year from the University of Warwick and am predicted a First.
I have had Katie help for my gcse English and she has been so helpful. She prepares the lessons and gives u homework and marks it. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Katie achieved a* for English at GCSE and A level and is currently studying English at degree level. She has passion and ability in this subject. Articulate, friendly and with a good sense of humour, Katie has experienced tutoring herself in Maths and French and can relate to any concerns you may be having with studying English. She will be a tutor you will look forward to working with and will understand your fears and apprehension regarding your commitment to regular extra tuition, fitting it into an already busy week. Katie also has experience of supporting learners with English as an additional language and understands the importance of understanding academic language particular to subjects other than English.
Katie has done an absolutely great job of tutoring my daughter English, I can see that she is a very insightful and patient tutor and has improved my daughters skills immensely. My daughter has transformed from being quiet and nervous when reading and writing, to confidently out-reading me! I hope katie becomes a full time teacher as it would benefit a lot of children like mine.
Katie tutored me in the lead up to my GCSE in 2019 in both English Literature and English Language. I had struggled throughout my years at school and was struggling to get anything higher than a C despite lots of 'Drop In's' with my school teachers. However, Katies excellent and thorough approach to teaching suited me perfectly and we worked really well together, with her kind and patient approach being just what I needed. I managed to achieve a strong A in both English Literature and Language, which ended up being my stand out GCSE results. I would strongly recommend Katie to all students out there looking for an English tutor as she was absolutely brilliant!
