Social Science student at the University of Liverpool offering lessons in English.

Methodology

I am a degree student who is happy to tutor anyone from primary school through to sixth-form. I like to create a student-centred tutoring style and like to adapt my lesson plans to meet the needs of my students. I have experience working with students with additional needs and can, therefore, structure lessons to fit a variety of needs and abilities. With my lessons, I aim to not only teach information but also to help develop skills that can be applied again and again by my students.

Background

I am currently studying social policy and criminology at the University of Liverpool. I have four years of experience tutoring small groups and individual students. I have A's at English at GCSE and B at AS English literature and an extensive background in helping students and peers proofread and edit work. I have helped students to achieve on or above their target grade in their mock examinations.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for online lessons : £9/h

Details

Travel costs are set at £5 though this is variable depending on the distance I have to travel to meet you when arranging your lesson I will let you know the final cost before you book. For online lessons, any interruption to the internet connection on my end will result in the lost time being added onto the end of our lesson free of charge. I have a 24/hr cancellation policy - if you cancel within 24 hours of the lesson I will charge for the lesson.
