Experienced Senior English tutor available for online only editing, proofreading and support

Methodology

My way of teaching is to work with the student to assist them in finding ways to give their writing more depth. I like to work collaboratively and give each student the confidence to step out of their comfort zone to find an ability they did not realise existed within themselves.
I work primarily via google docs as working with many students who suffer high anxiety and ASD, this form of communication alleviates much of the anxiety and fear of meeting new people face to face. This form of communication works effectively with an internet connection and google docs account (free to set up and use). Student and tutor are able to work 'in real time' and also have conversation via the message service available via the docs. This also allows tutor to comment on and leave notes when student is not available.

Background

I have been a Senior School tutor for 15 years. I have diplomas in Education, English Grammar, Social Science and much experience working with students with Learning Differences. My goal is to work with students to increase their confidence in sentence structure, written expression and embellishment of work; as well as teaching how to edit and proofread your own work. I have a current working with young people under 18 'Blue Card'.

I would highly recommend Lisa as a tutor, she has a special way of teaching which is amazing and the effort she puts in is like no other. I can not thank Lisa enough for the help she has given me for the past couple of years. Without her help I wouldn’t of got though high school, she made it so easy with her assistance.

Lisa takes great care and time with her students. She displays great eagerness, compassion and assistance with students work and continually thrives to help them achieve their personal best. Personally, as one of her students, I can confidently say she will go above and beyond to help her students with any assessment pieces they may have struggles with. Her effectonate and charasmetic persona really creates an environment of ease and relaxation for students. Along with myself and many other students we would highly recommend lisa as a tutor to any students experiencing difficulty in assessment or homework pieces.
