I am currently tutoring online only.
Wherever possible I attempt to rearrange cancelled lessons. However, lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be subject to the full lesson fee.
I have over 20 year's experience in education and have worked as a Private Tutor since 2011. I graduated from The Open University in 2010 with a degree in English Language and Literature. I started working as a private tutor in 2011, having gained teaching status.
My lessons are tailored to suit the needs of each student. Many children are failed by schools because they do not learn from the standard methods taught. I believe every child has the right and ability to learn, part of my role is to find their individual way to build their confidence and help them to achieve their full potential. Learning should be fun, therefore I aim to make my lessons enjoyable and memorable.
Having a good rapport with pupils is essential in breaking down their barriers to learning. Many of my students develop their confidence in learning by confiding in me. I take a professional approach to confidentiality and often become a mentor for the whole family.
As a child, I was a victim of bullying at school because I had a speech impediment which formed a barrier to my learning and social interaction. I have also experienced my own child being bullied. From first-hand experience, I understand what a difficult place school can be and how helpless you can feel as a parent. This was my sole reason for tutoring privately. I want to help children to make those years at school achievable.
Exams are a crucial part of school life, many children struggle with exams because they are not taught the techniques they need to pass. Learning these skills is fundamental and integral to my teaching.
Students often bring to their lessons homework, coursework or classwork which they have failed to understand in school, I'm in favour of this as I believe it allows the pupil to feel in control of their learning, supports their education at school and develops their confidence.
