Information about Niki
Hi, I`m Niki. I am a secondary school English teacher and head of years 9, 10 and 11, based in Kingston. I also teach Dance and have taught Drama and Media Studies in the past. I am keen to help students of all ages - in particular, those at GCSE level - to excel in English and achieve their full potential. I am very knowledgeable on exam board requirements and I wish to offer a helping hand to those looking for any extra support in the lead up to exams. I primarily conduct sessions remotely.
Availability: Working remotely offers more flexibility. Mostly Sundays and Tuesday evenings but can negotiate.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I have been teaching English for 6 years and have done an additional year of primary school teaching (Maths, English and Science) overseas. My degree was in English Literature, but I am competent with both Literature and Language. In the past, I have taught English Literature and English Language (GCSE and A Level) Media Studies (GCSE), Creative Writing (AS level), Drama (Key Stage 3), Dance (Key Stage 3). I am currently teaching ages 11-18 (using the AQA specification for GCSE) so my understanding of the course is very fresh and thorough. I also have experience of exam paper marking.
Aside from the above, I have tried my hand at journalism, which has included three printed travel writing pieces in Y Magazine. I also organise school ski trips, in my additional role with PGL Ski. Finally, I am adept at teaching dance for performance. I am an English speaking teaching but I have an A Level in French so can support some learners with English as an additional language.
Feedback For Niki (1)
Niki was great with my daughter, she put her at ease immediately and was able to make the sessions engaging. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help with their English tuition.
