Information about Coral

Hello, my name is Coral. I graduated from the University of Glasgow with an MA in Literary Studies (Merit) and also a Post Graduate Diploma in Education(PGDE) specialising in teaching English in the Secondary sector. I have a real passion for literature and language and in my spare time I love reading new books and discovering different authors. I am a very approachable, outgoing and friendly person and I find that this lends itself to tutoring young people that may be unsure of the subject that requires extra work.

I strongly believe that no student is the same and this is why I advocate a student tailored approach rather than a "one lesson fits all" mentality. I like to spend a little time in the first session discussing what learning techniques have proved successful for the student and which techniques they feel do not work for them, at this time I also like to discuss the areas that need improvement.I believe that it is important to create a plan for each student`s individual needs in order for them to understand how to reach their goals. I tend to keep sessions fairly informal but always challenging and encourage any questions to be asked to enhance the learning experience.

Availability: I am available for tutoring on weekday evenings and weekend mornings.

I tend to tutor from my own home, however, I would be happy to travel short distances where required.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I have tutored privately for the past seven years covering both the National 5 and Higher English curriculum which has allowed me to acquire a firm understanding of the demands that individual tutoring presents. The students that I have had the opportunity to tutor have ranged from 13 - 18 in age and I have covered all stages of the Scottish curriculum.

I have worked as an English teacher since the start of my teaching career and as such have experience in teaching all areas of the English curriculum and have a clear and extensive working knowledge of all developments in the curriculum. In addition to this, I am an SQA marker for the National 5 Critical Reading exam and have held this role for the past 4 years which has allowed me to keep abreast of national priorities and changes as well as having a current and thorough understanding of national standards for this course.

I am currently the Principal Teacher of Pupil Support in a Secondary school and therefore I am responsible for managing all aspects of Learning Support and have specialist knowledge in differentiation for a range of ASN.
