A bit about Murrough M

With over 22 years experience working in UK schools (I’m from Ireland originally) I’ve successfully taught all levels and always help my students achieve their exam goals. I take pride in my students success. I specialise in KS3 and 4 and can adapt to any learning style helping you to work hard in a relaxed and friendly learning environment. Bringing literature to life for my students is always a key aspect of my approach - great readers become great writers. Even though I love and use technology a great deal in my work I really believe in the power of books - if you are a lover of literature (or if you have previously found novels, poetry and plays hard to understand and respond to) I am confident I can help. I like to use a mix of resources and approaches ensuring that writing, reading, viewing and responding are part of every lesson. Variety of inputs and activities keep learning fun and stimulating. I love to use video and audio resources and to coach people on their reading skills. IT is a key component in my approach. Getting to know how different students learn and helping them to move towards their goals is always my aim. Each time I tutor a new person they are learning English and I am acquiring knowledge about them as a learner. Together we form a partnership that results in successful lessons and exam success. I work hard for you, you work hard for yourself. Together we map out a way to move you from where you are to where you want to go. I could not teach anything that I wasn’t interested in and reading and writing in one form or another have always been my passions. I aim to pass a love of the subject on to you while delivering to your exam goals. I enjoy a bit of banter and am alway willing to stop for a bit of a side chat when an interesting or controversial subject arises. I really like to tease complicated opinions out of people and make them more confident speakers and debaters over time (even those who are initially very shy). A lively class is a good class in my experience! I used to work with some quite troubled young people as part of one of my teaching roles - to see someone who feels very low about themselves discover a talent and a ability to succeed has been the most gratifying part of my career. To see them move on and have a career and to keep loving to read books has been the cherry on the cake! QTS in England since 2002 - I have a degree in English as well as a Masters and a Post Graduate Secondary Teaching qualification from Ireland. I had a mixed bag of teachers in school - some were good and some just weren’t trying hard enough. I learned a great deal from both. English was my great love in school but I had a terrible teacher for years - he was so bad I decided to get a weekend job and hire a tutor. That tutor was the best teacher I’ve come across to this day. He was my inspiration to become a teacher as good as him! I love cycling, hiking and growing as much of my own food as possible in my garden. I love the company of people especially my family but have always loved the company of dogs! I have two and we walk miles every day. They sit my side when I tutor online. I’ve taught OCR and AQA mainly but am flexible. Tell me what you are studying in school and we will get it covered.
