I have a BA in English Literature from London University and spent 35 years teaching English at High School and Sixth Form College. Although recently I have specialised in English at A-level and GCSE, I have wide experience of English at all secondary levels and enjoy teaching at all levels and abilities.
I have extensive experience of teaching English for public examinations and what is needed for success. I enable my students to be fully aware of what is required by the examiners so that they are always aware of how marks are awarded. I have coached many students for entry to top universities, including Oxbridge, and have qualification in teaching gifted and talented students.
I love my subject and aim to give all my students that same sense of enjoyment. In English particularly this is essential to success. On meeting a student for the first time I assess their strengths and weaknesses and design a suitable programme for them. I also try to use and guide students own reading so that it allows them to explore their own interests as well as improve skills in reading and writing. My approach is always very positive, with the aim of bolstering their confidence and self-belief.
I know from experience that the majority of English students are capable of achieving much more than seems to be the case. Individual tuition allows students the time to focus on their problems and to enable them to discuss exactly how to improve. I encourage students to be active participants in lessons so that they can come to grips with any issues which concern them. I also try as far as possible to make sure that lessons support what is being studied at school or college.
I have taught students from a wide range of backgrounds, including many whose first language was not English. I have also worked with students of varying abilities and levels of achievement. My aim in tutoring however is always the same: to enable each one to reach their full potential.
