Highly qualified English tutor and Creative writing tutor
I am an experienced English tutor with over ten years experience. I am also qualified primary school teacher with twelve years experience. I currently tutor as well as teaching at English at MA level. I have BA and and MA and PhD in creative writing
I really enjoy teaching students and getting the best from them, encouraging, and helping them achieve their academic goals. I find out what my students want to achieve and I work with them to achieve it.
Working one to one is my strength, and building supportive and friendly relationship with my students helps them to enjoy the lessons. I think it is imperative that lesson are fun and students enjoy them, as tutoring is often extra curricula and happens after an already long day. Students need to feel happy about the tutoring and cared for and supported in their studies. I like students to feel they have me on their side.
I teach with energy and maturity and help guide the student so they can become more articulate and confident and face their examinations and tests feeling calmer and happier and more equipped.
I focus on writing, creative writing, spelling, grammar, reading, reading comprehension, literacy. We also do lots of practise in the lessons, so students are confident in their knowledge and will perform well in exams, despite any nerves.
My academic specialism is literature and creative writing. I am very well read and can guide students though any text that they need to study. Seven years of teaching at universities at undergraduate and post-graduate level mean I can guide students with academic essays, presentations and for their viva.
I have published seven books, two novels, three non-fiction books and two children's books and am currently writing a new novel.
If I sound suitable for you or your child, please get in contact - I look forward to hearing from you.
