Unfortunately, this tutor is unavailable

Teacher of 11 years and graduate of Literature and Creative Writing, offering tutoring in English: literature; creative writing; essay writing; reading; and poetry.

About the lesson

My teaching methods focus around Gradual Release of Responsibility: "I do it, we do it, you do it", then re-apply the concept to something else to ensure true comprehension. I also differentiate my instruction to cater to the different modes of learning, and take into consideration any scaffolding that I may need to incorporate due to language factors, etc.
