Information about Vivien
Academic qualifications and levels taught: Alevel, GCSE, KS2, KS3
As a private English tutor I have delivered learning for year 6 students, to help prepare them for secondary school and sats, through to Alevel English Language. I also have experience of teaching ESOL and functional skills literacy. I have a lot of experience teaching students who have dyslexia, ADHD and ASD.
Non-academic courses and subjects offered- cooking and gardening. I have delivered workshops in these 2 fields for 4 years with all age groups. My sessions are fun and informative. I use readily available resources and ingredients that dont break the bank! Courses can be accessed on-line
I believe that all of us learn through positive encouragement and patient support. 1:1 tutoring provides the individual with an opportunity to ask questions and develop skills in a environment where they have my dedicated attention, away from a busy classroom.
I am able to build confidence and help students reach their potential in English language and English literature by tailoring lessons to their needs and interests.
Availability: For face to face sessions I prefer to teach at home where I have resources to hand. Although I would consider tuition in a students home if that was more appropriate.
I have wide experience teaching online.
I also offer online cookery and gardening courses which are fun and ideal for beginners and those with some experience.
