Hi there. My name is Joanne. I am an experienced English teacher and take pride in preparing lessons and resources which are both interesting and engaging in order to help students to progress in the subject. Working as an examiner allows me to communicate clearly exactly what students need to do in order to achieve better marks. I am very patient and I like to make people feel relaxed and at ease. I make it a priority to find students' strengths in the subject, in order to build on these and to boost students' confidence in their abilities.

I have privately tutored KS3, GCSE and A-level students on a one-to-one basis for a number of years. Some students have come to me simply seeking to improve their basic reading comprehension and written communication skills. Others have been seeking to improve their ability to respond to exam questions or write essays. With less than 20 tuition sessions, I was able to help one of my tutees go from a D-grade average to achieving an A* in their GCSE English Language.
