Ms Heather H

I have over ten years' teaching experience at both secondary schools and colleges, specialising in English and English Literature. I have also worked as a tutor for small groups of students in addition to tutoring private students, usually to help towards GCSE exams, but also to boost learning within Key Stage 3 and 2. I am happy to teach either online or one-to-one. My teaching style is based around encouragement and coaching. I believe that everyone has the ability to learn, although not always at the same pace, which is why tutoring is so good for those lacking in confidence in the classroom. I like to build a rapport with my students, to engage with them and thus help them to gain confidence and achieve their true potential. I also have experience of teaching adults with learning difficulties such as dyslexia and social difficulties and have helped them attain Functional Skills qualifications and GCSE English.
