I have always loved reading and writing, but fully understand that many people don`t and have barriers to their success in these areas.
My passion for helping young people to develop their skills, confidence and hopefully their love of this subject led me to being a Head of English in a successful secondary school.
Since having my son 15months ago, I have based myself working from home for a while, so I now work for a national company which shares strategies and resources with around 2000 schools across the country and I am also an examiner for a leading examination board for both Language and Literature. Working from home means I have the flexibility to take on tutees whilst working freelance and remaining at the forefront of educational change by working as an Associate creating resources and strategies for schools across the UK and examining the current Language and Literature specifications.
My passion lies with helping individuals to achieve in areas they struggle and tuition is an excellent way for students to access this support one-to-one to help build their confidence and skill-set, not just for examinations but for life as well.
