Shelley / Home Tutor In Holmer Green

I have taught English GCSE at Buckinghamshire College and a social skills curriculum at a school for girls with special educational needs. These very varied experiences are incredibly useful when tailoring teaching to individuals' needs. Many students are reluctant to engage and a positive and personable approach is vital.

Teaching Approach/Style

The most important aspect of teaching is getting to know the individual and their specific needs. I want to know how my students learn, what they find difficult, and, crucially, what they want to achieve. This kind of personalised approach is key to students reaching their full potential and I will always adapt my methods and resources accordingly.

Using a thorough understanding of the curriculum and the exam process, I enhance students' ability to maximise their marks in every question. Utilising my experience as a journalist means I have a unique ability to bring the 'real world' to teaching and to give context to students.

Empathy and understanding are also vital in the learning process; I want students to enjoy improving their skills as much as possible! Enthusiasm and a passion for the subject count for a lot when students need that all-important encouragement and confidence-boost. My lively and friendly approach underpins all my lessons.
