Full-time (Scottish) teacher of English language and literature to international students in High Schools on four continents over the last 14 years. I really enjoy the study of literature and spend my days talking to people about it and encouraging their ideas. I have experience of a wide range of High School courses and have had great success in helping students attain top exam scores while also developing a love of the English language. Currently available weekdays and (most) weekends.
I have 26 years of experience in tutoring and supporting learners to achieve their goals. I have a strong knowledge of excellent academic practice, developing your understanding of the arguments, and sharpening your subject comprehension, critical thinking, and essay writing skills for examination and assessment. I convert complicated theories and paradigms into straightforward ideas, with practical worth, and impart useful advice to my clients.

|Lyna||Michael||11th January 2023||Language A: Literature and Language||IB||Worst tutor I've ever had - PLEASE READ BEFORE WORKING WITH THIS MAN. I now realize that I've been robbed 80 EUROS short of cash. Having booked a lesson with this tutor, who proclaims to be the absolute best on the market. Actually, let me copy paste what he's told me prior to our lesson: "Dear Lyna, please feel confident that I am one of the most experienced and successful teachers of IBDP English A on Spires, having 15 years classroom experience of teaching the curriculum at top international schools in Europe, Africa, and Asia. I have a first-class PGCE (the standard government teaching qualification) and a first-class Masters in my subject. I am also an IB examiner, so I know how to get students through the Paper 1 and Paper 2 examinations, as well as the IO and the HL essay. Which are your IO texts? I can certainly work with you starting today (Monday) to find a global issue that suits the themes of your IO texts, and to structure a response that includes the BOW (Body of Work). Getting the balance right, in the limited time (5 minutes for each extract/BOW) is the main challenge! I have lots of resources from my career as an IB English A teacher which I can share with you, and I would be surprised if I had not taught or examined most of the texts that you are studying for English A. Kind regards" Very promising words. Except they're an UTTER DISTORTION OF TRUTH. Let me start from the fact that I got absolutely nothing out from this lesson, nothing! All I ever wanted was for him to proofread my Personal Statement and let me know whether the grammar was right, and whether the language was effective enough. Contrary to his promises, the man was absolutely lifeless, and seemed as if he didn't even want to be on the lesson. He would moan/sigh all the time, and refused to read my entire essay, saying "I won't be writing the essay for you; What I can do instead, is give you general feedback". Mind you, I never wanted him to WRITE it for me, but to check for grammar mistakes. But I did not even get the "general feedback" from him. I kid you not, that man spent 60 minutes sitting on his chair like a delirious man! With no voice, whatsoever. He seemed utterly confused with his job. If you have doubts about this post, please feel free to message me, and I'll readily send you the record of our lesson. Scandalous.|
