I am a qualified teacher and have been tutoring GCSE English for 15 years. I get to know my students as I am warm, bubbly and understand the importance of a rapport. I teach effective planning to optimise my students learning. It pays off, as this is a skill that schools simply don’t have the time to invest in. I have helped hundreds of students to get the qualifications they deserve. I am bubbly and highly motivated. My teaching methods work, and my reviews give me great pleasure. I work as a tutor for GCSE's in AQA, OCR and Edexel. I have also taught psychology at A level in secondary school. Reviews can be seen on first tutors or at request. Customers are welcome to speak to my past students and parents.
