Nottingham based student with background in languages to tutor English language, literature and revision strategies/exam preparation

Methodology

I'm a former student of Latin and during the time I studied it learned a lot about the English language that does not seem to be taught in schools which I believe puts students at a disadvantage. My teaching is aimed at and around GCSE level and adults looking to learn more about English. My focus is particularly on grammar and the fundamentals of language, as well as essay writing and analysis of texts, for both literature and other forms studied under GCSE's.

Experience

I am well read, particularly in the classics that exam boards currently study. Besides English I have a firm backing in French and some German, Spanish and Polish which helps me provide extra support for non-native speakers. I have previously made work from script editing for graduate students and aim to use that experience to support younger students in helping pave the best paths for their futures.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £35
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £75

Details

For students on low income, with travel costs or under other extraneous circumstances I am happy to negotiate fees that better suit them.

Work Experience
I have had work experience working on a shop floor during a voluntary job at my local Mind charity shop. During that time I learned how to operate a till and often had to work around the shop floor where I had to put up displays, assist customers and arrange items for sale. I have gained first-hand experience of working with customers and alongside colleagues, including helping to support co-workers with disabilities. The experience overall gave me good practice in working on a shop floor.
I have experience working the bar for weddings, serving food to the guests and pouring cask ales. I gained experience of working a long shift and the fast nature of catering.
During my current time at college I have offered my services as a literary editor. Though unpaid this has given me the opportunity to help out several people in their studies. Through this I have gained experience working to help people who don’t speak English as their first language and I have received much praise from the people I have helped.
