Hello, I'm Steph, I'm an English Teacher...
I help KS2 (years 5/6), KS3 (year 7-8) & GCSE (Years 9-11) students to succeed without struggling. I do this by focusing on four key areas..
- Reading comprehension.
- Punctuation, grammar, spelling and vocabulary building.
- Analysing other writers’ work using sophisticated language.
- Writing creative stories, articles, letters, reports and speeches using a variety of styles.
I’m an experienced teacher with 6 years in formal education, teaching all levels of English and supporting: those that struggle, those that excel and those that are somewhere in the middle and would like to improve.
During my formal teaching career, I was personally awarded an “outstanding” rating by both Huddersfield University and OFSTED inspectors. I hold a Masters Degree in Creative Writing and a Bachelors Degree in Creative Writing including poetry, short story writing, journalism and screen-writing.
I believe English should be fun, expressive and correct.
Students progress by learning and re-learning key skills in a repeating study cycle that reinforces abilities until the point where they are second-nature.
