Information about Daisy-may
My name is Daisy-May. I have three grade As at A level, a further A and B at AS and 2,1 degree from The University of Manchester in English Literature, Drama and Film Studies. I also have the TEFL teaching qualification accredited by The University of Kingston, a Distinction in Film Making from the London Film Academy (accredited by Goldsmiths College) and have trained as a Director at RADA. I have written and directed for theatre and film and have a passion for the arts, politics and the social sciences.
Availability: To be discussed with the client.
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: I have a great deal of tutoring and teaching experience, working with adults and children at varying stages of their academic and artistic careers. I believe that my success as a tutor comes from the fact that I am extremely passionate about my subjects, patient and sensitive to the individual needs of every pupil, imaginative in my approach to teaching and committed to making sure that every tuteeâs potential translates into achievement.
I have been teaching primary maths, creative writing and literacy for a number of years, working both as a private tutor and a workshop leader in schools. I have also worked with a number of primary aged pupils on their drama skills and have run drama workshops for children.
At senior school level, I have taught GCSE English Literature and Language extensively. Again, I have taught these subjects to private pupils as well as in schools and tuition centres, where pupils have come to me for extra coaching.
I teach A Level Philosophy, RS, Government and Politics, Film Studies, English Literature and Language, History of Art, Sociology and Drama. This has mainly been with private pupils over the last six years and I have received exceptional feedback across the board for my tutoring in these subjects.
I have also tutored at degree level in Film Studies, English Literature, Sociology, Art History and Philosophy. This has involved helping pupils to get to grips with concepts and texts, and to produce essays and dissertations.
In addition to my role as tutor, I work in high schools and primary schools as a school speaker, delivering talks on animals, animal rights, and cookery workshops.
To discuss my experience with me, or to request references, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Feedback For Daisy-may (14)
- Good at making concise notes for the student to take away and expand upon and not rigid in her teaching method. - Open to expanding upon concepts in order for the student to fully understand them & uses a range of techniques such as watching videos, making mindmaps, analysing exemplar essays, making mnemonics etc. Would recommend :)
Excellent all round. My daughter improved a lot within a short period of time. Her confidence level has also improved. Thank you Daisy
We`re very happy with Daisy. She is experienced, prepared, patient and creative. Our son looks forward to every session.
Daisy May tutored our eldest son through GSCE English with dramatic effect. She gave him the tools and confidence to pull out of him insights that he didn`t know he had and enabled him to structure his answers far better than he had known how to do previously. He turned it around and got a very strong grade and she played a crucial role in this there`s no doubt.
I used to find studying difficult but Daisy has helped to imbue me with enthusiasm for all areas of English Literature. She is very supportive and engaging and attentive to where a student most needs help and encouragement. I recommend her highly. - Kai

We thank her very much for her time and appreciate her determination in wanting the best out of her learning. Thank you Daisy-May!!
She`s a great tutor with in depth knowledge. She also gives great support and guidance throughout the course.
Daisy tutored my son in English and RS. I found her very thorough, diligent and with a good command of her subjects. My son performed better than was expected and I am confident that this was largely due to Daisy`s excellent teaching methods and skills. I would highly recommend her as a tutor.

Daisy-May is a lovely, sweet and great teacher. My year 5 daughter loved her lessons and made progress in creative writing and 11+ preparation. Thank you for all your helps Daisy May!
My daughter and I rate Daisy-May most highly for her knowledge, teaching ability and enthusiasm. She has been invaluable to her in her preparation for the English Lit GCSE exams.
Daisy is smart,thoughtful,kind and a good listener.
Daisy-May is an excellent teacher. She created in my 10 year old boy a real interest in creative writing plus every subjects chosen by Daisy May are rich on english history. She increased his confidence in his writing skills and built a wilder vocabulary, as a french family who speak mostly french at home it`s a big win.
