N5 & Higher English exam preparation, General English Skills, essay writing instruction, and literature study. Experienced with autistic, dyslexic, and ADHD students.

Methodology

The key to succeeding in English is connecting to the work and understanding the elements of language. I therefore focus on strengthening analysis techniques while exposing students to a range of texts, encouraging them to find what speaks to them.

Experience

I graduated first in my class with an English Literature and Theatre degree. I was a tutor in university and have been working with students in Inverness for more than a year. I create a supportive, responsive environment to help students prepare for school exams, better understand the mechanics of language, and broaden their experience of literature to improve their vocabularies and critical thinking.

Perfect! Carrie is very good at adapting quickly to the needs of her pupils. She has developed a positive rapport with our son.

Carrie's response

Rory is doing well and seems to be improving in confidence. His understanding is great, as is his reasoning. Improving his expression of his thoughts will be the focus going forward.

Shona

Good! Have only had a few lessons so a bit early to assess but has been able to engage a teenager-always a plus!

Carrie's response

Shona’s daughter and I have been working together for a few weeks now and making great progress. Looking forward to a long association. :-)
