Information about Andrea

I have an interest in grammar, poetry and literature in both English and Welsh, thus these are modules I have leaned toward as specialisms during my academic career.

I am friendly and approachable and have a great way with people of all ages and backgrounds.

Please, feel free to message me with any queries.

Availability: I am available for tuition on weeknights, except for Tuesdays, from 5:00 pm. I am also available in the morning on Sundays.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: Over the course of 10 years, I have tutored students of a range of ages, from primary school students to adults at degree-level education, with extremely successful results. This has been across English medium, Welsh first language and Welsh second language curricula. Each of the students I have tutored has seen their marks improve by at least one grade. Among the main achievements of my learners, I consider the following:

• a jump from failing grades to 2:2 at degree in Welsh;
• a jump one whole grade in A Level second language Welsh to ensure the
learner’s place at his first choice university;
• a jump of 1-2 grades in GCSE second language Welsh to secure an A*.

As part of my University degree, I undertook `Welsh for Adults` modules which studied various teaching and learning styles and how to apply these to the needs of individuals. I find this to be an invaluable background to all of the tuition I conduct.

The work I undertake daily is centred on current and emerging Welsh language legislation, i.e. Welsh Government linguistic policy. I am, therefore, on board and well versed in what Welsh Government’s target of ensuring 1,000,000 Welsh speakers in Wales by the year 2050 means and the value this places on Welsh language skills. In addition, my work has close connections with the education system in Wales, ensuring my familiarity with educational policy and standards.

Andrea is very helpful and a professional in her approach. The introductory meeting was very helpful to explain my learning objectives and expectations. Even though my learning outcomes are specific, she has taken her time to research the topic and provide me with supportive information during the `lesson time`. I will recommend Andrea on this topic `Confident Communication` based on her approach and delivery techniques. I feel more confident in my communication after two `lessons`.

We were very lucky to find Andrea, who tutored our son in Welsh, she was able to support him to move up a grade from AS to A level and he has been offered a place in his first choice university. She gained his respect quickly and he learned techniques to help him with the A level exam. Andrea`s communication is excellent and sh never let us down. It was a pleasure to meet her and we are all grateful to her for her help. I highly recommend Andrea to you
