Mrs Marcia S

An enthusiastic and committed English teacher, I have twenty years of experience teaching English Language and Literature in comprehensive schools where I was consistently judged to be an outstanding teacher. After leaving full time teaching to be with my daughter, I started tutoring on a part time basis, supporting children with additional needs and home schooled students as well as those looking for GCSE preparation. Seven years on, I now work with close to thirty students per year. In addition, I examine for AQA GCSE English Language on both papers. Within a week of the pandemic hitting in 2019, I moved online with my tutees, using a combination of Zoom and Google Docs. I continue to work successfully online with many of them but also travel to homes within the Bristol area. I currently have no availability for evening tuition but do have some capacity in the day time which would suit home schooled students.

Qualifications:
