Information about Gina
Congratulations to all of my students on your fantastic exam results!
I am a patient, creative and conscientious tutor, with an enthusiasm for supporting students in developing their full potential.
I offer one-to-one tuition in English Literature and Language, literacy (early years to adults), creative writing and general study skills. For other areas of study, please enquire.
My Enhanced DBS certificate, qualifications and references, may be viewed in person, on request.
Availability: I teach weekday daytimes and some evenings until 6:50pm. I am also able to offer online lessons.
Please enquire for my current availability. (Online teaching only at present)
Willing to travel: 1 miles
Experience: I am a graduate with a degree in English and Creative Writing and a Master of Arts in Humanities.
After initially volunteering as a reading mentor, I quickly realized my passion for helping children to achieve academic success. As well as one-to-one tutoring, I went on to teach a number of literacy, drama and creative writing workshops within primary schools.
I am a very friendly tutor with experience in finding a way forward for reluctant readers as well as those who lack confidence in literacy.
I have also worked with higher-ability students in need of a greater challenge. I am an experienced GCSE tutor.
I believe that a love of reading can act as a gateway of discovery for young people, nurturing their imaginative and naturally curious minds, towards both analytical thinking and creativity.
I treat all my students as individuals, recognizing that I need to be adaptable to their learning styles and interests. I find this is an effective approach, sparking a passion for learning and developing enthusiastic students, with the skills they need for educational success.
When faced with a challenge, I am always willing to research and learn, seeking new ways to support my students.
Supporting students in developing the skills (and an eager, enquiring mind-set) necessary for life-long learning, is one of my key objectives.
I nurture children to become confident students, curious about the world and equipped with skills for independent study.
I encourage my students to remember that learning and growing as a person is a life-long journey, and that we all make progress at different rates. Mistakes and struggles are learning opportunities!
Neurodiversity and well-being:
I have experience of supporting dyslexic students and working with young people experiencing anxiety.
