Exceptional Literacy Tutor
Literacy is critical to help young children be ready for school by working with them to develop early literacy and learning skills. Because strong reading skills form the basis for learning in all subjects, it is important to identify those who struggle with reading as early as possible so we can begin to help such child.
Teaching kids has been the most rewarding experience; it allows me to impart some of my love for learning and gives me the satisfaction of helping and guiding a pupil to discover their own abilities and the confidence to do the work.
I treat my pupils as individuals - that is, I don't patronize them as I find that having a good relationship and enjoying our time together helps the work process and builds confidence. I like to discuss a subject beyond the set syllabus and imbue my pupil with the desire to discover further. The syllabus can be dull and confining - I believe it is important to show how much more there is out there to learn and enjoy.
I am reliable, flexible, kind, firm and detail-oriented. I place great emphasis on sound foundations, good organisation and exam technique. I seek to stimulate my student's curiosity in the subject. I will also give the student practical guidance for tackling texts, revision and tests.
My approach has consistently yielded higher academic achievement and better motivated students.
I tailor my teaching for each child and have substantial prior experience to draw upon.

I taught Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Further Mathematics to students in the senior secondary section. I did this with the aid of a detailed lesson plan which was created in accordance with the British curriculum. I prepared the students for their IGCSE's. I made use of past question booklets to help them have a feel of how external examination questions are set.
