Personal Description:
APPOINTMENT SLOTS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE: Monday 7.45pm onwards, the coming Easter Holiday.

As a student, little came easy for me.

I learned the hard way.

Now, with over 20 years of teaching experience in a variety of institutions - from Oxbridge entrance to comprehensives on 'Special Measures' - I am young enough to remember my struggles and old enough to know better.

I know how to bridge that gap for my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

This is my fifth year as a full-time tutor, but I was a secondary school teacher for 19 years before that.

I have experienced many types of academic performance from high-performing grammar schools to comprehensives on 'special measures'. I have held a variety of positions of responsibility within schools, particularly in the pastoral system such as Head of Year. I have been a grade-A examiner for AQA GCSE Geography.

During the last four years of 11 Plus entrance, including September 2013, 12 out of 22 students passed. This is in keeping with my predictions where proportions are concerned. I have also successfully helped one parent and child through the appeals procedure for grammar selection. Furthermore, my 12 Plus tutee in 2011 was the only girl to pass and get a place at South Wilts.

I have also successfully helped one parent and child through the appeals procedure for grammar selection. Furthermore, my 12 Plus tutee in 2011 was the only girl to pass and get a place at South Wilts.

I have taught numerous syllabi: in the last five years I have tutored AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC at A level Geography. Indeed, I taught the whole of the A2 Edexcel Geogaphy syllabus online to one a tutee in Moscow: he has now gained a place at Aston University. I have mainly tutored the AQA and Edexcel syllabi for GCSE Maths. It would be fair to say that the overwhelming majority of my A level tutees experience significant gains and regularly obtain A or B grades.

At the moment (September 2013) I have 17 tutees in total: one A-level tutee, one GCSE English tutee, one home-schooled GCSE tutee for both English and Maths, two Key Stage 3 Maths tutees, one Key Stage 3 English tutee, two 11 Plus tutees, two Primary School Maths tutees and two Primay School Maths and English tutees. I would say on average, across the year, I would have between 15 and 20 tutees each week. Nearer exam time, this can creep up to 25.

Tutoring Approach:

One size does not fit all . . .

Tutoring and learning should be natural and intuitive so that tutees can 'fly' by themselves.

To make the most of tuition, a tutee must be 'on-board'. If it's their idea - even better. A tutee that is in-charge of their own learning makes an excellent pupil.

As a tutor, I decide what is right for the tutee - not an institution. Parents often want someone who is familiar with the education system but independent enough to give an honest assessment. My main concern is the welfare of the tutee - not just their academic progress - nor the reputation of some teacher or institution. If something is not right for a tutee, no matter how forceful a parent might be or how much money I might lose, I simply will not do it. Each year there are a handful of tutees I turn away because of this.

In the first session I will try to identify what it is the tutee needs, and you may wish to quiz me in more detail. I will need access to school reports and examples of the tutee's work. Through discussion with my tutee and parental input it should become clear the reason for the tutoring.

From this 'snag' list, I will design a bespoke program to meet the educational needs of the tutee. It is flexible and, unlike a classroom situation, I can respond immediately to the needs of the tutee.

Homework will always be set, depending upon the demands placed upon the tutee by the normal school week. The tutee will be far more involved with learning than in a normal school class where they can 'hide', so prospective tutees need to expect plenty of chat and discussion, reviewing work and giving feedback.

For learning to be 'on the wing', to be natural and instinctive, tutees need to work hard without feeling the burden. This can only happen through enjoyment and a lot of laughter. That's my part: helping tutees to work really hard without realising it.

If at any point I feel unable to help, I won't just prolong tuition, or if our work has met its aims then I will call a halt. The point of tuition is not to need me anymore, so they can 'fly' all by themselves.

I offer two types of 'remote' tuition options at the moment:

i/ ONLINE FACE-TO-FACE TUITION: face-to-face on Skype is very good in dealing with syllabus issues and reinforcing and filling in the holes the class teachers leave behind. Face-to-face tuition lends itself well to visual resources such as diagrams, maps and pictures. It is primarily discussion-based and the tutee needs to take notes as we go along. I regularly send tutees files to prepare them for the lesson and to discuss in the lesson. If a tutee comes to face-to-face tuition and expects to be spoon-fed or entertained, it just won't work. Extra work can be set to test their written understanding. Usually, it is enough to go through topics the student struggles with. Once they 'click' with the topic/issue, we move onto other areas. Payment for this type of tuition is a flat fee each week to cover lesson preparation and the lesson itself. The marking of substantial pieces of work outside of lesson time such as essays will incur a modest marking fee.

ii/ CORRESPONDENCE-STYLE WITH UNLIMITED EMAIL SUPPORT: work is set through powerpoints, pdf files and word documents for the student to do on their own in their own time. This should keep the tutee occupied for between 1-3 hours each week, unless more is required. It is then returned to me within the week. I mark it and provide feedback in the form of an audio file (up to 30 mins), talking them through the various issues. Any amounts of email conversations to help the student with this particular piece of work are allowed, after feedback has been given. This is very much an ongoing and open-ended commitment, once work has been set and feedback given, and the student is totally free to contact me with any issues. As a result, the payment structure is open-ended and depends on the amount of time used to prepare resources, mark and give audio feedback. This is added up at the end of each week, and the client is then billed. Follow-up emails and support are not timed but are considered as a 'free' part. Generally, this time will be from about 45-90 mins per week. I keep a track of the time minute to minute and endeavour to keep the time used as short as possible while setting about 1-3 hours of work. This is very much a trust system of working. I tailor the work individually to suit the student as opposed to an ordinary correspondence course that just covers syllabus content.

Please be aware that I do charge for travelling over 30 miles (roundtrip: 15 miles each way):
30-40 mile roundtrip - £5
41-50 mile roundtrip - £10
51-60 mile roundtrip - £15

Personal Description:
I am currently working as a Spanish teacher in a secondary school in London teaching years 7 to 11, and have had exam classes for the past 4 years with a very good track record. I have worked with both Edexcel and AQA in this time, so I know what it takes to get the best grades at GCSE. I am also very happy to work with younger children, helping them to feel more confident with mastering the basics in a language. If your child needs extra support or practice with any particular area, just let me know.

I have made several trips to South America, and have lived in Chile and Spain. I am also a fan of Spanish and Latin American films and literature, so if you would like to incorporate some more cultural aspects into lessons just let me know, as this can be very motivating.

Teaching Experience:

I am PGCE qualified, CRB checked, and have been working as a Spanish teacher for the last 4 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I get on well with children and young people, and would be happy to focus on any area that they needed extra help on. Sessions would be individually tailored and at the student's own pace. If there are any specific texts, exam boards or textbooks that the pupil is working with I would request some advance warning of this.

I am a fully qualified teacher with Cambridge MA, PGCE & DELTA, with 30 years' experience of teaching in a variety of contexts including general secondary school English and Drama, GCSE, A Level, IB, and tuition at university and postgraduate level, including assistance with theses and similar.
I have considerable experience of TEFL/TOEFL and a successful record in teaching Cambridge FCE, CPE, etc as well as Business English classes for non-native professionals.
I recently returned to the UK from Spain for family reasons and I am new to the York area. I'm taking time out for a while to write that elusive million-seller or sitcom! Meanwhile I am a member of SfEP and work part time as a professional proofreader and copy editor. I am very happy to help groups or individuals with their academic needs.

Teaching Experience:

15 years in all key stages of secondary school education in England.
5 years Adult Education, TEFL and private tuition in the UK.
10 years teaching a British curriculum in an international secondary school in Spain at all key stages incl. GCSE, A Level and IB.
Group and individual EFL classes for children and adults, including Business English for professionals and TOEFL in an American-affiliated college.
I have an excellent record of success in preparing students for English and Drama exams - GCSE, A Level, International Baccalaureat and beyond - as well as for Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced and Proficiency in English.
Amongst other notables, I was employed as personal tutor to the actress Rebecca Hall as a child and also to one of Tony Blair's sons!

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a supportive approach and a friendly relationship, but without forgetting it's work: you're paying me because I can improve your (or your children's) future prospects.

Personal Description:
I have a first degree in English, Postgraduate Diploma in IT, Adult Teacher's Certificate, TEFL and Business English teaching qualifications. For the last four years I have specialised in teaching EFL/ESOL.

I also offer support students who are in the process of writing dissertations/theses from any discipliine.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for eleven years now. During this time, I have worked both in colleges and community settings.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in an informal approach to tutoring. In a classroom enviornment or one-to-one basis, I always try to create a relaxed atmoshere.

Personal Description:
Please Note: I can now offer As & A Level Archaeology tutoring from AQA modules (please select the A level History option).

I am a Ba (Hons) Archaeology graduate from the University of Birmingham. I live in my own house and have a friendly but professional manner. I play the piano and I am a dance teacher.

Teaching Experience:

I am currently working at the University of Birmingham as a personal support assistant with disabled students.

I have taught dancing for 10 years at a private dance school and also within primary and high schools. I invigilate high school exams and have personal tutored several students through GCSE to obtain A grades.

I am used to working with young children up to teenagers and can adapt my teaching style accordingly. I have worked with many autism spectrum students including aspbergers and downs syndrome.

I have crohn's disease which has also helped me identify with disabled students.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to assess the students learning style and adapt that to my teaching (such as visual). I prefer to tutor in my home to create a relaxed friendly environment. I set realistic goals but like to push every student to achive their best potential.

I feel being young helps students feel more relaxed with me yet I always maintain a professional relationship.

I will cater my lessons to what is required but firmly believe in-

Lesson plans
Practice Papers
Mock Tests

FEEDBACK!

I do believe homework is essential between sessions to practice what we have covered during our time together. I do like to incorporate games where appropriate and work with the student to discuss how they feel they can learn best and get the most from our sessions.

Personal Description:
I am 23 years old and I am in my final year at The University of Manchester where I am studying French and Italian. I have spent 6 months in Bologna in Italy, working in a private language school for those wished to learn either Italian or English. I worked as a copywriter for the school website, working in French, Italian and English. I also worked as a conversation tutor to those who wanted to learn English. I am now waiting on my results for a recognised qualification, a C1 CILS exam. In the same year, I lived in Paris for four months where I worked at ELLE, the well known women's fashion magazine, where I used solely French. I am very down to earth and my biggest passion is football, I enjoy a good movie and love a good comedy. If you feel more comfortable meeting in a neutral place, a coffee place or in the town centre that is fine by me. It is flexible. A clean criminal record and can boast a detention-less education!

Teaching Experience:

I now have teaching experience and I have shadowed those who have done this for a job. I have worked voluntarily in a school teaching beginner's Italian. Having already worked as a conversation tutor in a private school, I feel I would excel in giving private lessons, given the chance.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel every student works at their own pace, however it would not take me long to work out an approach which would realise the full potential of the tutee. I am patient and I can sympathise that learning a new language or topic can be frustrating.

Personal Description:
I am a 24 year old Primary PGCE student, with a range of experience working with children and young people. In particular, I have worked with children who experience barriers to learning and I enjoy aiding them to experience success in education. I am a fun but hard-working and reliable individual with a passion for working with children.

Teaching Experience:

Before embarking on my current course, I worked as a teaching assistant in both primary and post-primary settings. I provided support to children with English as an additional language and with special educational needs in both settings. I was responsible for planning, setting targets and assessment of the children I worked with. I also supervised a Homework Club, providing assistance to post-primary children in various subjects including children with special education needs and those who are gifted and talented. During this 2 year period, I tutored a number of children in the evenings on a one to one basis ranging in age from Year 1 to Year 6, and I developed very positive relationships with the families I worked with.

I have a degree in Speech and Language Therapy, and during university placements, often took on a teaching role working with children one-to-one or in small groups; assessing and delivering therapy in a child-centred approach. I have completed my first school placement for my PGCE course; I worked in a Year 1 class in which I observed and evaluated the class teacher, then taught lessons independently.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe using a child-centred approach is key to success. I consider what might interest and motivate the child in terms of resources and materials, and work at a pace appropriate for the child. It is important for the child to experience success but also to be appropriately challenged in order to reach their potential. I embrace a fun approach when working with children and would like to provide them with a positive learning experience.

Personal Description:
I am an experienced teacher with qualified teachers status, who has taught in England and abroad. I have been helping children build up the gaps in their learning level since 1994. I am able to discover various learning styles to help children improve their learning. I am currently a supply teacher teaching in Hertfordshire and in Luton. Due to my vast Experience in teaching in various schools as a supply teacher I have an in depth knowledge of the national curriculum for maths and English for key stage 1 and 2 , from years reception to year 6 and have always received positive feedback from students parents. I am a mother of two teenage boys.

Teaching Experience:

I have a BA.Ed from abroad and soon after graduation I taught English and literature for two years in a secondary school(year 8 and 9). In 2005 after I gained my PGCE primary and have been teaching in primary schools since then. , covering years 1 to 6 in various schools in london . I now teach in stevenage and surrounding towns. I have been a supply teacher and Tutor for over 7 years .

Tutoring Approach:

when teaching children on a one to one basis, I usually start by giving them a general assessment on their reading and problem solving skills. After this I am able to plan for each child on an individual basis on how to help them improve their levels and fill gaps in their learning. Sometimes children come to my home but most times I tend to teach children in their own homes. I normally teach the children for an hour and then give them homework for further skill practice. I also help children and parents draw up a reading and learning timetable which is very easy to follow, this has proven to be very effective in the past, in helping children become independent learners. My approach is to be friendly but professional and help children relax in order to enjoy learning.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher, with over 12 years experience in both post 16 and mainstream education. My position prior to that, was that of Programme Area Manager, at a 6th Form College in North London.
As such, the development of students is at the heart of everything I do, and my aim is to always to help them to achieve their goals, build their self confidence, and develop the essential skills to help them become successful and well rounded adults. Having worked in a number of schools and colleges, with a variety of challenging students of all ages and abilities, I recognised that every child needs a different approach to their learning, as each has specific learning needs. My role over the years has been to provide the necessary support and guidance to each individual student according to his or her needs.
Being also a semi-professional musician and teacher of music and Music Technology, I have a very good understanding of both the creative as well as the more academic type of student, and have developed strategies to be able to support and develop all students.

Teaching Experience:

I began teaching at Primary level, coaching in various North London Schools. From their I went on to teach young persons and adults at a College in Essex, and did this for 6 years before taking a role as programme area manager at a a North London College. I have had many supply teaching roles in colleges and secondary education, and I am currently working as a freelance teaching for a North London Academy, and a Private organisation in East London.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to instil, build and develop self confidence, and belief, and also to make sessions fun and enjoyable, using a variety of hands on practical activities, and teaching methods, so the students develop a genuine love and desire for the subject. With my teaching methods, which is very much more of a coaching model, students make progress rapidly, and achieve their goals and aims, and leave sessions feeling fulfilled and feeling that they have accomplished something substantial. Most cant wait for the next session.

Personal Description:
I'm a passionate, caring and enthusiastic teacher possessing the key ability to translate the discipline of Mathematics in a straightforward, relevant and accessible way. My works greatest joy is supporting students academically, socially and emotionally and watching them flourish into capable, independent mathematicians and students. I seek to create an environment that's engaging, stimulating and tailored to their specific needs in order to achieve this.

Teaching Experience:

Shortly after graduation I was offered the opportunity to become a part time lecturer at Solihull College. Soon thereafter I took on a permanent role in the Engineering department.

I have been teaching Engineering Mathematics Level 2-5 and age groups 16+ across a wide range of Engineering programmes spanning from Motor Vehicle to Aerospace. Some of these include:

Mathematics for Engineers,
Further Mathematics for Engineers,
Analytical Methods and
Further Analytical Methods.

I also lecture / teach in the following disciplines:

Functional Skills Maths E3 - L2,
GCSE Mathematics - Foundation and Higher
AS/A2 Mathematics and Further Mathematics

As far as private tutoring is concerned, I have been tutoring since April 2007. During this period, I have worked with over 100 students. The majority of these students have been tutored for GCSE, AS and A2 Mathematics.

In addition to this, I have also tutored for Entrance Exams for 11+ Maths, and Oxbridge/Warwick (STEP).
Since last year I have also been tutoring for IGCSE and IB Mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I always seek to combine a solid grounding of the subject matter at hand with the needs and skill set of the individual. My philosophy is to take this combination and convert it into a student whose mindset becomes independent and robust so they can think for themselves using real world examples wherever possible for relevance. The starting point is always topics students are comfortable with moving gradually towards more complex areas as their mindset and confidence builds.

For me this approach is key and once they're grounded in the basics and well equipped with a relevant skill set, only then do we move on to applying that to an exam format and past papers. This serves to further purify, solidify and perfect the students' understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as mathematical definitions, analysis and the direct link between Algebra and Geometry. Where appropriate, I set and mark work, giving students' detailed feedback to further facilitate their improvement.

Ultimately, I love Mathematics and to infect others with this love is the most rewarding part of my job.

Personal Description:
I am a primary school teacher who lives in Brighton. I love living in Sussex and exploring the countryside and the amazing opportunities that there are within the county.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching in Primary Schools for 7 years now. I have taught years 4,5 and 6 so have an enhanced understanding of the curriculum requirements for this age as well as the expectations for the end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests.
I am still in the teaching profession and have an up to date understanding of current educational change.
I have just completed a maths specialism course at Brighton university which has really developed my understanding of misconceptions children have in mathematics.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a firm believer in identifying what it is that is acting as a barrier to children's learning, each child is an individual so I therefore believe that they will require highly personalised learning experiences in order to help them make progress. So the tutoring experience your child will receive will be highly tailored to their needs.

I also feel strongly that learning should be meaningful and multi-sensory so I ensure that my teaching style allows the children to recognise the applications of their learning in the real world and is represented in as many different styles as possible to ensure that the learning is embedded and meaningful.

Personal Description:
I am a diligent, competent student currently studying Chemistry, Biology and Spanish at A2 at a prestigious Grammar school.

I achieved 6A*s and 4As at GCSE including Spanish, Geography, Mandarin and RS. At AS level I achieved AAAB including Chemistry, Biology, Spanish and RS. I would love to help others reach their full potential as there is nothing I enjoy more than seeing myself make a tangible, positive impact on others. I believe my own experiences can aid greatly in my tutoring as I am well aware of the requirements of both GCSE and AS level down to the finest detail.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored two students as well as one of my younger cousins in the past for both GCSE and 11+ exams . I tutored 11+ Maths and English and GCSE Biology, Spanish,Chemistry and Mandarin (Chinese).Both of these students managed to improve by at least a grade in the subjects I tutored them in and I am very proud of this.
I am also willing to tutor students in AS Biology, Spanish or RS.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is very hands on and I am very charismatic. There can be nothing worse than having an uninspiring teacher when trying to boost your grades in a subject. I will look to work my students hard but at the end of the day, you get out what you put in.

There is no easy way to do well, however I do believe that I can help students to improve their grade by focusing on exam technique and application of knowledge.

Personal Description:
I have recently semi-retired back to Oxford after two careers: the first in journalism and the second as a teacher and minor academic, having spent the past four years lecturing in English literature at university level. I am, however, a traditionally trained teacher, having qualified at the University of Oxford 20 years ago with the full secondary PGCE in English, with history as my second subject. I can teach all aspects of English and all periods of literature from GCSE level upwards, but undergraduate students may want to know that my academic specialism is in 19th century literature, and my doctoral research was on Dickens. Alongside my tutoring work, I continue to do examining, coursework moderation and consultancy work for the leading exam board in the subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years' experience, mainly teaching all three varieties of A level English to the specifications of three different awarding bodies, at various colleges of further education. I also have considerable experience of GCSE English (mainly post-16 retakes, also in the FE context) and have taught within a local authority adult education service, as well as at university. I also have several years' prior experience of seeing one-to-one students privately. I have been an examiner for A level English literature since 2000, a coursework moderator for the same since 2009, and am currently a senior examiner for A level English language and literature.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I think I am friendly and approachable, adopting an informal style of session, though I do insist on academic rigour where it is called for, and I have the expertise to back it up. I believe in a collaborative approach, with the full and ongoing involvement of parents, particularly of younger students, and would also expect to liaise by e-mail with the student's English teacher at school. I see the tutor's role as supporting mainstream education, not as something separate from it. I am aways well prepared, and wil go the extra mile by researching material which students have to cover, as well as reading and where appropriate marking students' work, in my own time.

Personal Description:
I am a warm and animated tutor who teaches A-level Government and Politics, A-level Philosophy and Ethics, as well as English up to A-level. I have a solid academic record in these subjects and a love for putting together a piece of writing. This is a passion that I hope to pass on to my tutees.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught children at KS3 and A-level.

Tutoring Approach:

In my experience a genuine interest is the best engine to drive forward development. In light of this, I want ignite a passion for the subject we are studying, to give my tutee a broad view - in any way that I can - of everything that's exciting about it.

I am not just another teacher and a tutoring session will not be like just another lesson at school. I will pragmatically explore what works best with each individual. This begins with exploring a tutee's understanding, finding out what they know, finding out what they may think they know in order to root out any mistaken ideas, and talking through real life examples and interesting illustrations to see if they can use what they know in different contexts. This approach also allows me to identify where my tutee's own struggles and goals are so that they can be targeted. Leading a student to achieve their own goals can provide an important boost in confidence.

I find that an important strength of my tuition lies simply in making friends with my tutee. With A-level students, being fairly close to them in terms of age really helps here, as it was not so long ago that I was in their position, preparing for the very same exams and coping with the same pressures. I also get on really well with younger students and have experience in developing informal relationships with education at their heart through working as a peer tutor whilst at school.

Keeping tutoring sessions interesting is key to engaging a tutee. This is something which I achieve by making sure that there is always a lot of variation in and between sessions, taking short breaks, as well as using a mixture of hard tasks and easy tasks, short tasks and long tasks. I make sure that all of the skills relevant to what we are studying are sharpened as we apply, analyse, classify, synthesize, justify and evaluate our way through each exercise.

Another important part of my tutoring approach is striking a balance between supporting and challenging the tutee. There are a few aspects to this. One, for example, is responding positively to errors when they occur, helping a tutee to recognise them for themselves and treating them as learning opportunities by exploring the thought behind them. This facilitates self-correction and strengthens the reasoning process which underpins a good written answer.


A common problem amongst students is that knowledge cannot be lucidly expressed. I aim not only to help a tutee remember all of the right information in terms of arguments, critiques, dates and figures, but I also cultivate his or her own ability to craft the way that they express their knowledge.

Most importantly as a tutor I seek to build confidence. I am convinced that doing well academically, even excellent academic achievement, is something within everyone's reach. And that is what I hope to demonstrate to any students entrusted to me. When I leave the family home, I intend the student whom I have spent time tutoring to be left with calm and confidence that they are moving forward.

Personal Description:
As a qualified secondary English teacher, freelance educational resource writer and examiner for AQA and Cambridge (iGCSE), I am warm, friendly and approachable. I aim to build professional working relationships with both tutees and parents to enable the best outcome which ultimately should be progression. I particularly enjoy tutoring pupils for examinations as I feel my experience and knowledge allows me to give pupils the confidence to achieve their best and make significant progress. I am also a keen traveller, having recently travelled and volunteered in Asia with the International Humanity Foundation; something which I feel affirms my flexible and humanitarian personality.

Teaching Experience:

Qualified since 2007, I have over 5 years experience of teaching English at secondary level in both the state and private sector. In my last school, I was subject leader for the GCSE where my results were consistently high; my most successful year boasting 97% A*-C for English Language. Pupils were also particularly successful on the poetry examination, where over 95% of pupils taking the higher paper achieved a grade A or A*.

Both schools I have taught in have been high achieving schools; My first school was rated outstanding by Ofsted and my last school was recognised in the 2012 Parliamentary Yearbook as one of the Country's Centres of Excellence in Education. Thus, I have experience of teaching to a very high standard.

I have been tutoring for over 2 years and I currently tutor pupils between the ages of 8 and 16 and I would be happy to provide references from current tutees.

I tutor pupils with a wide range of agendas, from pupils sitting upcoming entrance examinations for grammar schools to GCSE pupils and pupils sitting the iGCSE.

Tutoring Approach:

I base tutoring sessions on my knowledge of the criteria for achieving the highest possible levels and grades, which often involves skill based work for both reading and writing. My aim is to stretch pupils and help them reach their potential. I pride myself on encouraging pupils to feel confident in their ability and skills and offer praise as often as I can. I am fond of using mnemonics which I have found to be extremely effective in helping pupils remember the key skills needed to address assessment objectives and foci. I am flexible in my approach, which means I can work with tutees and parents to tailor the work for the sessions, or I am happy to approach sessions using my professional experience as an English teacher. I am happy to set homework and always inform pupils and parents of progress being made. Ultimately, my approach is professional, honest and structured with a fundamental view of progression.
