English Tutor

Summary:

I create personalised programmes to fit the needs of individual students and frequently adapt these to incorporate new texts and resources to keep the lessons fresh and relevant. My sessions tend to focus on assessment technique and start with short focused activities, building the skills necessary to complete longer written tasks designed to mimic the conditions of examinations. I aim for students to enjoy our sessions and feel comfortable asking questions; my main goal is to help them improve and I can only do that through honest discussion of issues. I do expect high standards and find that my pupils meet my expectations and gain grades they are proud of, when they apply themselves. I like to have a good rapport with tutees' parents as I feel that learning is a joint initiative. Testimonials from former clients are available upon request.

Work History

Teacher

Schools

From August 2006

I've taught in Grammar schools in Kent, outer-London schools and a wide variety of institutions in Hong Kong. My subject knowledge covers English, Drama and Theatre Studies, and Classical Civilisation (the latter subjects are very useful for approaching English texts in innovative ways). I am most familiar with the new GCSE specification for AQA, but can happily adapt to other exam boards. I have experience tutoring 11-18 year olds and have worked with high-functioning autistic students.

Reference from a satisfied client

Melissa is a highly talented teacher and knows her subject area and what is needed to achieve exam success very well. Alexander has special needs (high functioning autism) and Melissa was able to engage and adapt to what the situation called for. She has also really increased his general competence and confidence in the subject, which were at a low level to begin with.

We are entirely satisfied with the fantastic job she has done and very much regret that she is moving away. We wish Melissa the very best and recommend her without reservation.

Reference from a satisfied client

Having looking for a personal tutor for my son in year 11 who lacked interest in the subject English, Melissa was the right person. She offered stimulating sessions, showing great enthusiasm that reflected in my son’s improvements with his grades which boosted his confidence in poetry and essay writing during examinations.

We was getting close to the final exams in his last year at school and my son was predicted a C/D grade and after consulting Melissa, she was able to set a personalised programme in a short space of time which proved to be both effective and beneficial as he achieved a satisfying A/B grade.

Therefore I would like to confirm, Melissa has always been punctual and I can’t thank her enough to turn up regularly and provide 1-1tuitions in the comfort of my own home. I would certainly recommend her if you’re somebody looking for a smooth and significant progress in GCSE English.

Thank you – Mrs Master
