My Passion & How I Inspire

“I aim to offer each and every student a productive, enjoyable and overall high-quality tuition service by guiding them with leading sample answers to assessment questions and coursework essay questions. I also familiarise them with key language techniques and different writing styles. Additionally, I encourage them to incorporate sophisticated vocabulary and varied sentence structures into their own writing. Furthermore, I regularly assess students on their knowledge and ability in a specified topic. These combined methods allow students to formulate their responses to set questions with greater confidence, clarity and flair.”
