Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a patient, flexible and friendly tutor who makes students feel comfortable. I really enjoy one to one tutoring and believe it helps all students gain confidence and improve their skills in their chosen subject. As students all learn in different ways, I am always happy to vary my tutoring methods to suit individual students. I have the expertise and enthusiasm to motivate students to improve their skills and exam techniques, as well as helping them to achieve their full potential. I have considerable experience of supporting students who find English particularly difficult.
