I have taught English for over 30 years, in both the state & private sectors &, more recently, as a self-employed tutor running my own business. I have an excellent record of examination success because of the positive working relationship I develop with learners & the encouragement I give to all pupils. I have Exam Board experience as both a Senior Marker & a Moderator. I offer a wealth of experience gained in varied contexts. I am conscientious & caring.
