I am a fully qualified English teacher who strives to achieve excellent results. Graduating university with a BA Hons in English language and literature, I achieved 69% - a very high 2:1. Following this I achieved outstanding teacher status upon completion of my SCITT and also hold a PGCE in English teaching. My ethos is to build relationships with my students in order to create relevant and imaginative lessons. I believe that every student should have the chance to reach their full potential and to appreciate the importance of English within a modern society. My subject knowledge from early years to A level is sound and I aim to adapt lessons according to students' abilities, which includes scaffolding for those who require prompting to challenging the more able or as ability improves. Most importantly I believe that English should not be taught 'to exam', but through teaching the skills required in order to pass exams, while following the national curriculum. In the past I helped a year 11 student to improve his English language grade from a 3 in his mocks to a 9 at GCSE. I hope to hear from prospective clients in good time to achieve this aim.
