About the lesson
My teaching method is based around assessing the needs of the individual student. These would depend upon their stage in school, their specific difficulties, strengths and weaknesses, interests and so on. Another key part of my approach is outlining and then focusing on what the student’s goals are; for example, if they are a GCSE student they may well be working with the overall aim of attaining a grade in a final exam. If this were the case, I would use their syllabus and mark scheme as a guide in order to create lesson plans around achieving this aim.

I am in my third year at the University of Bristol, and am due to complete my degree in BA English this July, and graduate with a predicated 2:1. My other qualifications include an A* grade in English literature at A Level, and 2 A* grades in English Literature and English Language GCSE. My teaching experience includes teaching English as a foreign language in Sri Lanka, where I taught both adults and children - I taught some of these students in a one to one manner, and others in classes of varying sizes (they typically ranged from having between 5 and 20 students). My youngest students were as young as 5 while the oldest were middle aged, meaning I have experience teaching a wide range of age groups. Some of these classes consisted exclusively of either adults or children, whereas other groups were mixed - this meant that I had to juggle different levels of ability, and learn how to alter my teaching style in order to match the individual. I also have experience in teaching English where it is a native language, primarily with primary school children. In these lessons, we focused on creative writing skills, reading skills, grammatical skills and 11+ tuition. I planned these lessons and the lessons taught in Sri Lanka myself, and therefore have experience in lesson planning and an awareness of how to match my lessons to the requirements of the student. Finally, on account of studying English at degree level I have read very widely, and am currently writing my dissertation on Psychoanalytic Literary Theory. Therefore my studies have required both a widespread understanding of English and specialist knowledge - both helpful tools when it comes to having the attention to detail required to teach older students.

I require at least 24 hours notice if a session is to be cancelled - otherwise I will have to charge a £10 cancellation fee, as I will already have planned the lesson.
