I am an English Language graduate, from Warrington. I have a 2:1 in BA (Hons) English Language. I have A-Levels in English Language and Literature (combined), I.C.T. and History.

Methodology

My teaching method is very much a hands on approach. I feel the best way to teach a student is to adapt to their needs. I am very vocal, as well as thorough in my explanations. I feel the best way to teach someone is to interact with them, try and get an understanding of their preferred learning style, then offer an approach that is suited to the student.

Background

I am an English Language graduate, from Warrington. I spent three years studying the English Language. I have taught a couple students, however, I have been helping people with Literacy skills for many years. I am one that will try to offer multiple explanations, in order for the student to understand properly.
