What I Do

I offer English tuition online and in East Norfolk.

You know you need that Grade 4 at GCSE so you can progress your learning at 6th form or college, but how do you get it?

You also know that if you don’t achieve a pass (grade 4 or above), you WILL have to resit the exam.

Or maybe you want to study Psychology or Criminology at college and need a grade 5?

Perhaps you are a high flyer and want to aim for that elusive grade 9?

Or perhaps you struggle with English?  Or English isn’t your first language?

 

How can I help you? I support students in preparing for their GCSE English exams and motivate them to achieve their full potential.

Students improve, on average, 2 grades, when they learn with me!

One to one tutoring is intensive, but works!

I also help students who struggle with language concepts to overcome their barriers to learning.  My aim is to create a more positive and balanced learning environment which makes it more comfortable for them to learn and ultimately, enjoy and achieve!

Similarly, if you’re a non-native English speaker and want to improve your skills, then I can help you become more confident with English!

My Philosophy

When I was studying to become a teacher, my philosophy was ‘to enrich my students’ lives with learning opportunities that actively encourage independent, expressive thinkers with the confidence to articulate their views positively’.

But, how can I help YOU?  I demonstrate this philosophy by building a relationship that gets the most out of my students, metaphorically holding their hand through the learning journey so they enjoy the process and go forward with a positive view towards ‘lifelong learning‘.

 My Methods

I would describe my teaching methods to be creative and relevant, differentiated and flexible, focused and challenging, friendly and approachable. 

One of my student’s parents described my approach to be ‘highly intuitive’ establishing a ‘brilliant relationship’ with her son.   Another commented on the ‘valuable strategies’ her dyslexic son had learnt to help him with his reading and writing.  My patience and dogged determination ensures that even students who might be ‘hard to reach’ experience a positive and fulfilling learning environment.

 My Goals

In a nutshell, my goals for teaching and learning are that each and every student learns to love learning and views it as essential, both now and in the future.  I can help you do this!

Lifelong learners are interesting, imaginative and impactful.  They become high achievers, successful and positive.  If my students develop a love of learning and achieve their own goals too, then my work is done!
