Sarina Mann BA MSc
I enjoy tutoring English because it’s an essential skill for everyone. A skill, that not only enables students to do well in their GCSE exams, but a life-skill that empowers them to communicate, understand and engage with the world effectively. With a passion for tutoring English and a clear, logical teaching style, my students see results.
Educated up to Masters Degree and trained as a tutor at university, I ensure my lessons are of a high standard. I view myself as a life-long learner, always striving to improve my qualities as a tutor.
I communicate well with parents to deal with any issues that may arise during tuition. I also familiarise myself with my tutee’s school website to keep up to date with news from the English Department. I know the syllabus and exams well for all main education boards (AQA, Edexcel, Eduqas and OCR).
My Tutoring Approach
I listen to students learning needs and develop a tailor-made plan.
Teach With Clarity
Making things clear and simple! Learn then practice.
My tutoring style involves questions and interaction that students enjoy.
Encourage And Support
Extra support and encouragement goes a long way.
A big part of learning and succeeding in exams.
During my postgraduate degree in, International Development, I trained and worked as a tutor at the University of Southampton. After experiencing an illness I decided against a career in International Development. Instead, I focused exclusively on my work as a tutor, specifically in ESL, KS3 and GCSE English Language.
As part of my tutor training, I learned how tutoring was different from teaching. A good tutor is necessarily a good listener and communicator. Someone with a keen ability to listen carefully and assess where the learner is on their journey. Someone who is approachable, and brings out the best in the tutee. Lastly, someone who offers clear explanations of topics, helpful feedback and encouragement.
