Experienced English Literature/Philosophy graduate of the University of East Anglia, providing private tuition up to GCSE level in English Language/Literature and Maths, across South-East London and online. Since returning from seven months teaching English in a grammar school in India, I have worked regularly as a self-employed 1:1 private tutor, gradually accumulating great reviews and many repeat, long-term students, working with a large and varied clientele, mainly via reputable tuition agency Tutorful (formerly Tutora) I also work in a group tuition centre for Students Achieve in Croydon, where I take control of small, weekly group classes of various ages and ability. I have gained true job satisfaction, always striving to evoke a rise in students` confidence, a much firmer grasp of the language and an improvement in exam success. I look forward in the future to assisting many more people in this way. I push students to work hard, yet I am patient, and relate very well to youngsters. I also have very strong SEN teaching experience. My online teaching experience is ever-increasingly vast; I have been extremely pleased with the effectiveness of this method of teaching. I`ve found it to be even more fruitful a platform of learning for some students. I used to focus solely on physical one-to-one teaching - however, ever since social distancing guidelines were adopted, the majority of my lessons have been conducted online. We can share files/screens/discuss exam extracts/practise essay writing etc, and study all aspects of English in much the same way as we would in person. If you would like to arrange a tuition session or have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.
