I have experience of teaching and tutoring English Language, Literature and Combined English.
Experience: 8 years
I am a dedicated and experienced tutor of English who has been graded "outstanding" by the University. Teaching is a strong vocation for me and I love the buzz I get when I feel I have inspired my students. I hold an undergraduate degree in English and have five years’ experience of working as a tutor for English Language and Literature. My approach is to be friendly, supportive and professional when interacting with students. I encourage them to be proactive and resourceful in their approach to English, guiding them through the processes of learning and problem-solving. Sessions are therefore individually tailored and flexible to meet the needs of the student, so are student-focused rather than traditionally teacher-led. I spend time getting to know my students and, whenever possible, encourage the practice of English skills within topic areas of personal interest to them. I am a good listener and can empathise with my students, helping them to see areas for improvement in their work and offering practical advice and tips on how to develop it further. Ultimately, I aim to help my students fulfil their academic potential whilst also developing the range of skills needed to achieve their aspirations in life.
