Passionate English and Media university graduate who specialises in GCSE English tutoring

Methodology

A culturally aware, adventurous graduate who is passionate about sharing knowledge. I studied English for over 12 years which culminated in a 2.1 in English Literature and Media and A's at GCSE and A Level.
Also, working in unfamiliar surroundings has enabled me to become an independent, unnerved person who relishes the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds and cultures, enhanced by living in Germany and Japan. I have 120 hour TEFL qualification, and I have taught at a Japanese summer school and want to continue to improve people's English abilities.

Experience

More than 40 hours of tutoring experience one to one and at a higher education college. I have been providing lessons since the beginning of the year and my high ratings and reviews are available on Tutora. I specialise in improving students' confidence and abilities in English by tailoring lessons to their needs and giving advice for exams and general improvements to their work.

Myles's CV

Profile: A culturally aware, adventurous graduate who is passionate about education, as it is the most effective way of changing one's life circumstances. I have also attained unspoken knowledge, such as the qualities of being interpersonal and empathetic from my time spent at a mental health and children’s charity. Also, working under the pressure of deadlines and being in unfamiliar surroundings has enabled me to become an independent, unnerved person who relishes the opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures, as demonstrated by my experience living in Germany and Japan.
