Long-time English teacher, lecturer and examiner in Oxforshire with a patient, supportive approach

Methodology

My approach is friendly, gentle and supportive but extremely professional.

At the heart of my tutoring is how important it is that a student believes in their own ability to learn and to progress. If there is one word I hear my students kindly use to describe my qualities it would be 'patience'. Yet I never feel like my patience is tested - I love the challenge of finding new, innovative ways to help them understand their subject.

Experience

I am a long-time teacher, lecturer, examiner and professional tutor with a patient and supportive approach.

I have taught 5000+ hours at over fifteen schools and colleges, four major universities and with numerous private students. This has ranged from general/casual learning to exam and entrance preparation at all levels.

I passed my PhD in English at the University of Leicester. I also hold a Masters with Distinction from Oxford Brookes University and a First Class undergraduate degree from Loughborough University.

I also hold qualifications in cognitive and educational psychology and in supporting adult dyslexia.
