I am a highly-qualified former Assistant Head Teacher with responsibility for Special Needs and Dyslexia, and Head of English Faculty at a number of outstanding schools. I am DBS checked and I have current working knowledge of classroom practice and GCSE and A-level specs. I have delivered individualised private tuition for several years with outstanding results, developing excellent and motivating relationships with my students. I have written numerous courses for the delivery of KS3, GCSE and A-Level English Language and Literature. I've also worked in junior school classrooms and have tutored 1-1 for the last decade, including to non-native speakers of English who are both youngsters and adult learners. The pandemic has led me to move all tutoring online, although I am looking forward to being able once again to work face-to-face with many of my current students. Naturally, the present uncertainty in assessment procedures in schools makes flexibility on my part paramount, and I regularly support parents to liaise with school so that students gain maximum support from my input. I also have worked extensively with a number of students at university, providing Literature candidates with personal tutoring in the absence of focused provision from their universities, and supporting the writing of assignments in a variety of disciplines including Sports Studies and Psychology, as well as English Literature. I love working with students, building on an excellent relationship to motivate and tailor schemes of work to their individual needs and anxieties. Self-belief and the confidence to ask questions if they don't understand enables students to make excellent progress and they are challenged to push their knowledge and understanding within an examination/assessment context.
