English Literature Student, capable of tutoring exam prep, reading and writing skills

Methodology

My teaching method would be ideal in a one to one setting. I believe that I am capable of teaching the subject of English at a Secondary school level. My teaching method would first to identify areas in which pupils would struggle, then to explain it to them in a calm and friendly manner, gradually building up a large degree of understading within the pupil in areas in which they struggle.

Background

I am a student at the Univerity of Stirling studying English Literature, I have had experiences with tutoring throughout my years in Secondary School education and am very much inept with the practices of both working and educating children/ teenagers.
