« Shona helped me with my English lessons, and I honestly think I got a better grade because of her. She is calm and patient during her sessions, and helps explain elements I don't understand well. She is very knowledgeable, with her extensive wide reading, and can adapt the session well, which is why I highly recommend her. »

A passionate A Level student studying English language and literature, philosophy and ethics and German offering English tutoring to a high standard in Coventry.

Methodology

I am new to online tutoring although I have a lead role in school for mental health and well being guard. I would like to approach my lessons with sensitivity to both the academic and emotional needs of the child. My lessons will consist of reading and analysing various texts, helping children with any homework or school work that they may be struggling with, practice essays and tips on effective essay planning, wider reading and exam prep. My lessons will be tailored to suit my pupil based on their availability and budget. I want to gain experience from this and I am very adaptable and approachable so please feel free to contact me with any queries!

Experience

I am a student at Blue Coat sixth form and am currently studying English, philosophy and ethics and German. I am passionate about helping young people to fulfill their academic and emotional potential because I am aware that it is paramount for a child's learning environment to feel safe. I have previous experience at Kumon tutoring centre, which is also based in Coventry and I specialised in English and reading with my pupils. I am applying to Oxford university next year to study English and I genuinely enjoy applying my academic knowledge to other areas of my life. I believe that through the power of language, young people learn to find their own voice and can express who they are as a person. I achieved A** in both English language and literature as well as in religious education in accordance to the new grading system.

Shona's CV

I am studying English language and literature, philosophy and ethics and German at A Level standard and have experience in working with children throughout my time at Kumon tutoring centre. I was also a youth worker at Coventry Comhaltas music group and I have gained experience from this by being able to communicate with other young people to get their views on how they are being taught. I am very conscientious with skills ranging from time management to reliability and good customer service.
For interest, my GCSE grades are as follows:
English language: 9
English literature:9
German: 7
Religious education: 9
History:8
music: 6
maths: 5
science: 6/6

Shona helped me with my English lessons, and I honestly think I got a better grade because of her. She is calm and patient during her sessions, and helps explain elements I don't understand well. She is very knowledgeable, with her extensive wide reading, and can adapt the session well, which is why I highly recommend her.

Abbie

I would highly recommend Shona because she is both patient and understanding as well as highly knowledgable in the subject of English. She teaches in a clear and easy to understand manner.

S
Simran

Shona is always punctual and on time to sessions, as well as being efficient and using the session time wisely to help me learn as much as possible. Every session left me feeling less and less nervous about English and doing bad, as i felt I learnt a lot of stuff in such a short amount of time. She used effective techniques to help me remember quotes etc. and really helped me to feel more confident in English and getting a more than good grade.
