If you're looking for a passionate KS2 tutor to build young people's confidence and enjoyment of creative writing, spelling and grammar, then I can't wait to have a chat with you about it!
My mission is to help children learn, laugh and love literacy.
I revel in inspiring Key Stage 2 children to create the most imaginative and, at times, breath-taking writing that I've been lucky enough to hear. That was definitely my favourite part of working in primary schools as 1:1 teaching assistant too.
I have a passion for the English language, taking it as far as my degree in English Literature and Education (BA Hons), and I strive to bypass boring 'one-size fits all' teaching and reignite the wonder of English!

Ryan has been tutoring my daughter who is in Year 7 for approximately 6 months now. The sessions are once a week and had been face to face up until lockdown. The sessions are now via zoom. Ryan ensures the sessions are structured and he sets homework to compliment the learning. My daughter's English language and creative thinking has improved vastly. She enjoys her sessions. I would highly recommend Ryan. More...
Ryan provided English tuition to our 15 year old son for several weeks on the lead up to his mocks. Although confident in other subjects such as maths, science and engineering, he had been struggling with English, and we were concerned he would end up having to retake his GCSE having only achieved a 1 in his pre-match exam.

Through Ryan's tutoring and support, our son went from a clear 'fail' with his English language to achieving a 7 in his mock result. A huge relief considering that now, having not been able to take his GCSE's this year like all his year, because of Covid19, his GCSE English grade will be reliant on the Mock result and his teacher's assessment.
His teacher had commented at the time how much of a difference she had seen in our son's attitude, understanding and confidence and we attribute a large amount of that to the help he received from Ryan.
Thank you Ryan for your patience and tenacity with Douglas. The results speak for themselves." More...
