Hello, my name is Nicola Walker. I have always had a great love of learning and one of my greatest joys in life is passing on the knowledge and skills I have learnt and seeing my students grow in their confidence and ability. Knowing that I have made a difference to someone's life through my teaching gives me true satisfaction. I have a BA Hons in Humanities (with a major in English) and a PGCE in Education & Training and have been working as a private tutor for many years, teaching clients face to face and online. I have tutored English from Key Stages 1 to 4 and have also taught ESL face to face and online. In addition, I have extensive experience in tutoring for the Eleven Plus. My ethos is that every student is a unique individual and I adapt my teaching methods and resources to meet those specific needs. My goal is to build the learner's self esteem and confidence and give them the skills they need to succeed in their learning goals. .
