Undergraduate student in Nottingham offering tuition in their native English. Speaks French and would be prepared to translate between the two.

Methodology

My teaching method tailored to the individual; I prefer to speak with a potential student before their lessons to build a clear list of the skills they want to master within the said lesson, and then I devise clear and succinct explanations and examples to aid them with this.

Background

I am a current BSc Economics student at the University of Nottingham. I have previously tutored students on a voluntary basis in GCSE Maths, GCSE French and reading for dyslexic students, one of whom noticed a 5 year improvement in his reading age at the end of the academic year.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £12/h

Details

Cancellation will not incur cost. I do ask, however, that I be made aware of this as soon as possible.
