Due to high demand, I am unable to take on any new students at this time.
If you have had lessons with me before, you can book your preferred slots as usual.
I will update this page when the situation changes. Thank you for your understanding.
I am an ONLINE ENGLISH TUTOR. All of my lessons are taught remotely using Zoom, with a secure booking and payment system.
You can book your lessons easily and flexibly to fit around your own schedule and there are different courses to choose from, depending on your requirements. You do not need to sign up for a long term commitment if you don't want to, but can simply choose whichever topic is most relevant to your learning at the moment.
If you have any questions about the process, then please sign up for a free 30-minute taster session. This will give you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the topics you would like help with.
I began my career in education as a Teaching Assistant back in 2002, supporting pupils in primary schools with special educational needs. I ran specialist intervention groups and supported pupils to overcome their individual barriers to learning in the classroom.
I then moved into a secondary setting and began my role as a Literacy Support Assistant. Whilst continuing to work in this role, I completed a BA (Hons) degree in English Literature and trained to become a teacher. I graduated to become a secondary school Teacher of English and attained Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) status. I taught Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 classes, as well as having my own Tutor Group where I provided pastoral care.
In addition, I hold a 120 hour TEFL Certificate, which enables me to teach English as a Foreign Language, and I have worked with online learners all around the world to improve their English skills.
During my career, I have attended countless training courses, ultimately empowering students to maintain a successful educational experience as they work towards their end of school exams. More formally, I hold a Level 2 qualification in Understanding the Autistic Spectrum and a Certificate in Dyslexia and Foreign Language Teaching.
I am registered with the DBS Online Update Service and I hold an enhanced DBS disclosure.
