English is a subject which I am very passionate about and I am keen to pass on this passion to others. I have a degree in English Literature from the University of Glasgow and I am currently at the University of the West of Scotland working towards a PGDE in Secondary English. I am a very enthusiastic and determined person who always wants to get the best from myself and from others. I aim to create a friendly and trusting environment in which the student can develop confidence within the subject and feel comfortable when completing tasks. I am very patient and will always provide the time needed for a student to understand the particular question or technique. I want to be able to help with any queries or difficulties that the student has in order that they can develop their enthusiasm for the subject or indeed find it. I now have over a year's experience and have found that my students have achieved excellent results at both Higher and National 5 level. I am happy to offer tutoring virtually or face to face in adherence with current social distancing guidelines.

Tell us about your experience...
I have been tutoring for the past three years throughout my undergraduate degree. I have found it incredibly fulfilling and enjoyed working with a whole range of students. I mostly work with those in S4-S6 completing their National 5 and Higher Qualifications. The students I have worked with have all achieved excellent results and some have gone from attaining C's and D's to an A in the exam. I have also tutored children in primary school, helping them build on their reading and writing skills. I am currently completing my PGDE in order to become a qualified English teacher so I will throughout our work be able to put these skills into practice,
