What is your personal message to students?
Hi, We are Michelle and Phil. We are a married couple, both of whom are teachers and tutors. We are based in North Wales. If you are looking for a tutor that listens to YOU, understands what you want and YOUR needs, then look no further. Please feel free to contact us. We offer free meetings to all students before taking up tutoring, because We think it's easier to decide if you want someone to tutor you if you know you can meet them first and that they won't be upset or offended if they choose not to work with you. You have to be totally comfy and at ease with someone if you are going to learn form them! We tutor English, Literacy, RE, Philosophy, Humanities, French and German and can provide additional needs support. In addition, Michelle is a qualified Dyslexia teacher. We are also teach general learning, writing and revision skills for students at all levels and we are able to provide a proof reading service for university students submitting essays and dissertations. We will gladly tutor any subject, providing you let us know in advance what you require. We can deliver tutoring to adults as well as for school age students. We are happy to tutor online too! Give us a call to see what We can do to help you on your learning journey!
