Claire (Tutor in Brighouse)
Information about Claire
Your classes with me will be friendly and relaxed, but focused on learning and progress. I adapt my classes to your interests, but make sure you stay on track with course content for GCSE. You will gain confidence and develop speaking, listening , reading and writing skills and improve your exam technique. I work year round so classes are not confined to term time so you can do extra classes during holidays, which is especially important in the pre-exam period at Easter.
I understand the needs of adult learners, whether learning for business or leisure and whether you are a complete beginner, or, you want to brush up on your skills. With an independent tutor, you avoid tedious form filling often found with local authority classes and by agreeing a timetable in advance, I can fit classes around your holidays and lifestyle and I work year round so classes are not confined to term time
