In the capacity of Senior Teacher for English Language and Literature, I rendered my teaching skills to Senior Students preparing for the Board Exams following GCE, GCSE and IB Syllabus. Holding a wealth of fifteen years of teaching experience, I aim to provide enjoyable and interactive learning in the areas of Language Enhancement and the Understanding of Literary Texts in different genres by different writers. Abundant use of Interactive White Board in the Classrooms, Power point Presentations and Slideshows, in addition to recourse to the use of varied media, has been my forte. I also hold a longstanding experience in preparing students for TOEFL, SAT and IELTS. Skilled at training students for Dramatics, Inter-School Debates and Poetry Writing Competitions, I specialise in offering my expertise to improve the writing as well as the oral skills. Above all, my prime aim is to encourage the students to feel passionate about the subjects and to rekindle in them the genuine desire to learn.

I worked for 15 years,formally and for 14 years as self-employed- teaching the Edexcel GCSE Syllabus at the O Levels as well as the GCE. Obtaining excellent results achieved through a proficient follow up of the Coursework and Projects, I enjoyed a wonderful and easy accessibility with all my students. In the initial years of my teaching career, there being not much usage of the software in the classroom teaching at that time, the solely direct interaction between the Teacher and the students, cultivated a special rapport. In addition to imparting justice to all the essentials of the Language counterparts of the syllabus, equal justice was meted out in the field of Literature with relation to all different genres and forms of writing.

I have worked in Saint Mary's Catholic High School Dubai, and Dubai Gems Private School. I have taught GCSE English Literature and Language, and my average A*/A grade proportion of students has been 70% of the class. Although the schools are not based in UK, we follow the Edexcel board and have adopted the same teaching methods.

Alongside the changing trends in Teaching, I acquired all the skills to provide VAK learning, comprising all forms of interactive teaching for a comprehensive acquisition of knowledge by the students, in addition to developing genuine interest in the subjects.

Online teaching is an excellent means of interactive learning at a minimal cost and expenditure of time, energy and money. Personalised Notes, Powerpoint Presentations, Videos, Mind-Maps and 'Formulas' especially created for Language and Literature Analysis are my forte.

Well experienced and an excellent English Tutor

Mrs. Pushpinder is my private tutor helping me to prepare for my forthcoming Edexcel Board exams. She taught in my school St. Mary's Catholic High School, Dubai for 13 years; although I'm getting the opportunity of getting her experienced guidance only now, I consider myself most fortunate.

Best teacher ever!!!

Having been Miss Pushpinder's student for more than 2 years now I think I'm in a really good position to share what i learnt of her character and her method of teaching. I must say, what I learnt and was able to achieve in those 2 years wouldn't have been possible with any other teacher else where. Miss Pushpinder is a teacher to whom I still look up to and I always feel very great full to have been her student. I remember she would never mind spending her breaks sitting with me and clearing my doughts or telling me of the areas I need to work on. I had never been given so much attention by anyone earlier, Miss Pushpinder really went head over heels for her student's success and didn't mind helping them over Skype and other social networks as well. A key factor which shouldn't be ignored is Miss Pushpinder's great and rich experience which gave her the power and understanding on as to how to deal with every student as each one is different. I honest found Miss pushpinder to be a special person, a role model towards all her students and a teacher who valued her students above all.
