Information about Karen

PERSONAL HISTORY
I started my teaching career at age 27 with primary school children, having qualified at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. From primary I progressed to Junior. I am addicted to literature and writing and have a large library of books. After spending several years travelling worldwide, doing some tutoring on the way i returned to England and started teaching Creative Writing to adults. This continued for over ten years. However, after writing for a while I found myself missing teaching.

TUTORING
In 2003 I started and subsequently achieved my MA in 19thC literature and later decided to use this new qualification to start tutoring. I have been tutoring GCSE and AS and A level English and Literature now for 3 years, with many students getting As for their subjects.

TUTORING APPROACH
I choose to give lessons in my own home giving me access to books and or computer searches that may come up unexpectedly during a lesson. They are free to explore my study and my books if they wish which makes them feel comfortable. I also find that a student is more likely to be inattentive in their home surroundings.
I assess each student and tailor my lessons around their individual needs and personality. I structure the lessons but remain flexible within this structure to suit the student’s needs on any particular day – these can vary according to what they are doing at school and/or their own personal mood. I follow the curriculum they are studying at school, with additional help when they need it with spelling, structure, grammar etc. to improve comprehension and essay writing. Their motivation or lack of, and their own personal interests – provide a guide to creating an inspiring learning situation, creating hopefully a rapport between us.
My aim is to enable self-confidence to encourage interest in literature and writing, and develop conversation connected to what they may be studying at school as well as passing their exams.

Availability: After school most holidays,

Willing to travel: Home Only
