I like my pupils to have a positive outlook and to believe that they can achieve their goals. Once we put the effort in, there's nothing that can hold you back!
I mainly give lessons to primary and secondary school students. I like to get to know my pupils on the first lesson so that we can figure out and set appropriate targets.
I use practice questions / past papers depending on what I am teaching in order for my pupils to develop a confident understanding and attitude towards the subject.
I tend to set small homework tasks as well, which we will then discuss in follow-up sessions.
I am graduate of English Literature and Creative Writing; I graduated in 2014. I also have experience in my field ranging from writing articles for magazines, writing a variety of content (including, for a TV channel and businesses), editing and proofreading, as well as holding a Creative Writing workshop at a local primary school.
I've tutored a number of students since 2012, helping them with reading, essay writing, CV's and cover letters and creative writing.
