Hi, I am a friendly, patient and enthusiastic English tutor with considerable experience mentoring individuals within a wide range of abilities and ages.
Whilst I am conscious of the demands of the curriculum, the joy of teaching lies in the origins of the word the “education” - drawing out not putting in; I approach each student as an individual, seeking to respond to his strengths and weaknesses. The greatest satisfaction comes from enabling the student to arrive at answers for herself not feeding solutions.
I have gained widely relevant experience, teaching computers in libraries, leading a community choir and hosting drama workshops, all of which informs my approach to tutoring.
James has been tutoring my 15 year old son for past 3 weeks in English for GCSE and my son who doesn't like the subject is very happy and talking about it with enthusiasm. James is patient and understanding and very punctual. Very pleased so far.
James is a delight to have helping my daughter to pass her GCSE. He is punctual polite and nothing seems to be too much trouble in order to assist. His knowledge of the subject is superb and it is a pleasure to have him working with Lydia. Thank you again Tutora.
