English Language Tutor
Knowledgeable and Enthusiastic English Language Teacher
When teaching English Language, I welcome the focus on the individual learner that is a central feature of tutoring, and i very much enjoy engaging in the lively dialogue and individualized feedback that enables tutees to grow in confidence as learners. I bring enthusiasm and energy to my tutoring. My approach to tutoring is also informed, where relevant, by a sound understanding of the assessment requirements for public examinations and school entrance examinations.
My attention to engagement and structured progress provides struggling students with the tools and attitude to help lift their grades, and assists well-performing students in discovering that extra flair and enjoyment that can distinguish their work at the highest level.
I firmly believe that no subject, however daunting, is too difficult for a student. My job and favourite activity is to find that relatable example or way of looking at a topic that can unlock complex material for a learner.
I spend a lot of time asking questions to make sure the students truly understand the concepts and then get them to teach it back to me as a way of clarifying their understanding. I try to come up with creative ways to learn and enforce concepts that are applicable to the real world.
I am also a big advocate in making sure students are equipped with all the tools to learn that will benefit them outside of our sessions , such as organisation and effective study techniques
