Tell me about some of your current students.
The students I teach currently are people aged 16 - adult, working towards a qualifiction so that they can apply for higher education or employment.

My students are varied. Some are at school or college and need extra support away from the classroom; some attend evening class to achieve the GCSE. Some may have dyslexia or other learning difficulties; others are speakers of other languages who need to gain qualifications for work or education. Some are returning to education after a break from education.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Lessons are built around your particular requirements, to improve your skills in the English language and if you are taking exams, to prepare you for them. I use a variety of resources to make lessons more interesting and help you to learn in a way that suits you. Tuition sessions can give you space to focus on learning, helping you to move towards your goals.
