My specialist areas are English, Maths and Creative Writing.
I have worked in education for more than thirty years, both in the UK and overseas. For the last decade this has included private tutoring in London as well as tutoring overseas students via Skype. I tutor English and Maths up to and including GCSE level, assist with the preparation of UCAS personal statements, as well offering university and college students help with written work such as guidance on the structure of essays, proofreading and editing. Additionally, I offer ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) to both adults and children.
As an award-winning and widely published writer whose work is used in schools and colleges as far afield as Germany and Scotland, I also offer tuition in creative writing. In this last field I have more than 20 years’ experience, having taught/facilitated writing in a wide variety of settings.
I am educated to Ph.D. level and hold various professional qualifications as well as an ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) certificate.
Children, I believe, learn best when they find learning a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Those who are encouraged to love learning soon do so willingly and achieve their potential. A love of learning is what I hope to instil in all my tutees, regardless of their ability and difficulties. However, whilst this is a long-term educational goal, students do need to face assessments of various sorts, particularly examinations. For this they need to be taught examination technique, such as revision and how to tackle written papers successfully. This is an essential part of what I teach my tutees. The combined long and short-term approach has proved successful and has satisfied both the students with whom I have been privileged to engage as a tutor and their parents.
