I am a mature family woman, educated to Ph.D. level. For the last twenty years I have tutored Creative Writing, ESOL, Maths and English, both in the UK and overseas, up to and including university level, in classrooms and privately. My students have been as young as six or as old as sixty, of varying abilities and from hugely different backgrounds. Regardless of the tutee’s ability, I take pleasure in helping her/him achieve his/her potential as far as possible. One of my tutees who was barely literate and numerate at 16 went on not only to pass her exams but to become a teacher herself. Another is now herself a senior maths and science teacher. I take equal pride in my contribution to the achievements of both these young women. Alongside tutoring I freelance as a writer, editor and proof-reader. I am an award-winning and widely published short story writer and have written for mainstream newspapers and magazines dealing with educational issues, as well as for magazines geared towards young people. I have also had academic papers published both in the UK and abroad. My wide writing experience enables me to offer students at universities and colleges guidance in: -Developing a critical approach to reading / research -Learning how to analyse materials -Clarifying ideas -Understanding how academic papers should be structured -Writing critically -Finding strategies to overcome weaknesses early in their studies I provide a sounding board for students' ideas before they are presented in seminars, papers or tutorials. I am also available to proofread assignments and suggest ways in which they may be edited before submission.
