MSci Geology student offering English tutoring in Birmingham, located near Selly Oak

Methodology

My teaching method is a hybrid of demonstrative, lecturing and personalising my lessons around what you require to know.

As no two students are the same and require small tweaks or something totally different to get their mental gears turning!
Personally, I enjoy creating a fun casual rapport with my students based around positive reinforcement so they don't get too bored!

Experience

I am a second-year MSci Geology student based in Birmingham, I also used to study Politics and Sociology at the University of Warwick in 2017.

- I have been tutoring since 2015 amongst peers at my old highschool.
- My students went from U/G grades to Cs/Bs which is quite a shift in level!
- I really enjoy teaching creative writing to younger children
