Tutor in Burton Joyce, Nottinghamshire


£17.00 / hour

Tutor in Nottingham and surrounding areas

I am an accomplished TEFL teacher, with experience working with and tutoring children and young adults from primary to secondary school age in India. I have recently (July 2017) just graduated with distinction from the University of Edinburgh with a degree in Arts, Humanities and Social Science (BA) (AHSS) (HEA), minoring in subjects such as Health Science, Astronomy and Sanskrit. Subjects I have most experience in tutoring include; English, Maths, Biology, Physics, Geography, Astronomy and Spanish (all at GCSE level or below). I am very passionate about teaching, and I am a very kind, patient and creative person, which I believe are essential skills for an effective tutor.

I am currently working on getting my Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate.

Patient, approachable, helpful. 10/10!

Over the couple of years I have known Holly, she has been a massive help to me with my University work! Holly is very patient and approachable with a skill for explaining things in a way which is easy to understand. I can be a slow learner at times, so having Holly in addition to my lectures was a huge help. Holly knows what makes good academic work and what the markers are looking for, regardless of subject area. Plus, having someone to proof-read your work and give feedback, allowing for re-drafting, before the submission deadline is invaluable! Holly has a wide range of knowledge spanning many many subjects (some of which are a bit random!) and what she doesn't know, she will find out (in ridiculous depth - and remember it for life!). I would recommend Holly as a tutor to anyone and everyone who is looking for a genuinely kind, patient, helpful tutor who clearly enjoys her role and has a genuine want to help you succeed. Thanks, Holly!

Friendly and passionate

In the whole time I have known Holly she has always pushed me to strive for excellence. Holly is smart and driven. From her time at university she never gave up in getting her degree no matter what obsticules were in her way. Holly continues to help me succeed while I'm at university with constant support and help whenever it's needed. Holly is highly intelligent and has expierenced a broad range of oppunities for her to learn. Holly is constantly learning new things and pushes herself to find out new things everyday. Holly would make an excellent tutor because she is never willing to give up on anyone or anything. I recommend Holly as a tutor for you if you are looking for someone who is good natured and will help you succeed in your studies.
Extremely helpful
