Information about Tricia

Hello! Thank you for looking at my profile! Based in Mold, North Wales, I am a qualified secondary school teacher, with 39 years of teaching experience, who makes learning great fun for learners of all ages and abilities! I have a qualification in the teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) (February 2015) and am outgoing, warm and friendly, with a good sense of humour. I am respectful, tolerant and non-discriminatory.

I have worked within a variety of different educational settings, with learners of all ages and abilities from different backgrounds and cultures, meeting a range of individual needs and enabling learners to acquire a broad range of skills, knowledge and attitudes:
*Learners whose first language is not English.(Lithuanian, Syrian,Romanian, French, Pakistani, Sri
Lankan, Polish)
*Children from pre-school to secondary level.
*14 -19 year olds, and adult learners, within Further Education.
*Students preparing for and studying within Higher Education.
*Unemployed young people.
*Adult learners from the traveller community.
*Young men on probation.
Learners at every level have difficulties with reading, interpreting and writing English and I empathise with the way this can really affect confidence and the ability to learn, so it gives me a real buzz when I can help people improve and see their confidence increase. I am patient and resourceful, intuitively knowing whether or not learners understand, and can relate to the difficulties they have and concerns about admitting them. I find alternative ways to motivate and get information across so that people are able to understand.


A: - Mature Student:
"I would not hesitate to recommend Tricia. She has a structured approach to achieving learning objectives and a calm, friendly and encouraging manner. She tailored her lesson content so it was relevant and made a huge difference to the confidence and ability of a mature student in a short space of time."

Z. - Absolute beginner:
"My teacher Tricia is very nice and kind. She always smiling. She have good sense of humour. All lessons are very interesting,if I cant understand something she is explaining for me not only with words, she can take of her sock and use it for learning. She always have full bag of different new things to show me and to learn new words. After 1 year my English get much better, all my friends and colleagues now saying that I talk to much!"

P. - 10 year old:
"Tricia is the best tutor I ever had! She is really nice to me when I’m learning. When I have tuition with her, she always teaches me a new thing in English every week. Rarely she is not here due to illness or gone to somewhere as a holiday. She is like my class teacher but only coming once a week. I enjoy my lessons with her. I learned skimming and scanning, inferring meaning, reading critically, etc. from her. These gave me a load of intelligence: since she has been teaching me I’ve got an A2 in my English rather than C3. She uses different coloured pens to make my lessons fun rather than using just one pen to make the lessons dull."

V. - 13 year old:
"I like Tricia`s lessons when we do Quizlet because I understand and it is very helpful too. The other lesson I like is prefixes. A prefix goes on the beginning of the words to change their meaning. I like this lesson because l understand it well.The most enjoyable lesson I like is when we highlight the words and write it in the coloured pen because I can see it clearly."

Good quality

Marian (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

I am very pleased with the tuition I`m getting from Tricia, she is an excellent tutor. Each week she has the lesson prepared and structured for me and she has boosted my self confidence. I would highly recommend her.

Tutors Response :

Ah thank you very much Marian! I really enjoy our lessons - your sense of humour enable us to have fun and laughs! It is a pleasure to teach you because of your enthusiasm for learning and your openness to having things explained to you: the rules of the French language, English grammar - where helpful and relevant - and devices for helping you to remember.

Tricia is a thoughtful and hand working tutor. Her preparation prior to tutor sessions are excellent. Her structured and organisational skills are first class. She has helped my daughter to make sure her notes are structured and organised and easy to follow. I would certainly recommend this tutor for anyone requiring a balanced and highly efficient tutor.

Tutors Response :

Thank you soooo much for your very positve and thorough feedback Carla. I`m so glad I`ve been able to help M. She made it easy with her very proactive and `hands-on`approach and her willingness to listen, `take on board` feedback and suggestions and learn from them. I wish her luck with her future plans! Tricia

From my daughter (aged 13): "I find Tricia`s lessons interesting and helpful. She has made me check my own work which has made me pay more attention to my grammar and spelling. We use highlighters to check that I have included everything. She has taught me more in our lessons about grammar and PEE than I learned last year at school."

Tutors Response :

Thank you E! I`m so glad you find the lessons interesting and helpful. You are very good at checking your own work, identifying where you could improve, paying attention to your grammar and spelling and being open to learning and to making changes. It`s very rewarding to work with a student who has such a good attitude to learning! I`m so glad too that your grammar and your ability to understand and use PEE have improved from what you knew last year.

The tuition I received met my needs in every way.The tuition was of a level I could understand and gave me confidence. My tutor is very good.She has a lot of patience and she goes into every detail that you want to know about.She will also go over the same thing with you if you are not sure.She is also very easy to talk to and she doesn`t make you feel stupid if you don`t know something.I would recommend her to anyone.Iam not very confident and have to repeat things many times and write it down in my own words but she is very patient and is prepared to go over the procedure until I understand.
Once again,Tricia is entirely efficient,professional and helpful.I would recommend her highly and have once again benefited from her lessons.
Iam very satisfied with the tuition.
My tutor was very patient and helpful, I intend to continue learning with her.

Tricia has been a great tutor for my 6 year old daughter. She has quickly gained my daughters friendship and trust and has built her confidence to read and write. My daughter always looks forward to Tricia coming to see her and is always eager to learn from her. Thank you Tricia, you do fantastic with.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for the feedback Angela. A. is a real pleasure to work with because she really wants to learn and so she engages with, and loves, everything we do. She`s happy to use the `3 read` method with me and as a result she is growing in confidence with her reading.

Jonathan (Mr)

Tricia has been great with our 12 year old daughter, who has been struggling a bit with her English. The sessions are exactly as required well prepared, interesting, detailed, and her interaction with our daughter is excellent. We can thoroughly recommend Tricia.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the feedback Jonathan. It`s very rewarding to work with a youngster who listens to the suggestions that are put to her. However, her ability to also `reflect` upon what is said to her and then her `willingness` to apply it to her work is what is making it possible for her to take responsibility for her own learning. This willingness to learn, and to apply recommended techniques and systems to her studies, is enabling her to experince the positive changes she has the power to effect across all subjects.

Tricia has been working with my son for many months now and we find her to be very likeable and professional. Tricia has managed to engage him and as a result his spellings and reading ability is growing with every lesson along with his confidence in himself. Tricia has managed to make reading a lot more fun and as it feels like less of a chore, my son is willing to practice more. Here are my son`s comments: For over 1 year Tricia has been my tutor. I have really enjoyed it, it has been good fun. She has taught me things that school haven`t been able to. I have learnt so much from Tricia. She has found things out about me. She discovered I had dyslexia. It has been hard at school but because of Tricia I have been doing amazing. Thank you Tricia.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your very thorough feedback A. It is increasingly rewarding to work with T. because he has reached the point where he sees/feels that he is making progress and this is motivating him to take an active part in his own learning. He now identifies his own spelling errors and is thinking about why he makes them and how he can correct/prevent them and, as the books he is reading are at the correct level for him, his confidence is growing every day.
