Lee Norton

L Norton's Tuition Services



I believe that success with any student is not just a case of how well you know your subject, but also how well you can engage with that student. Tuition should be stress-free and as relaxed as possible to promote a positive learning experience. As such, my approach to tutoring is designed to be calming and engaging, as well as knowledgeable. With an extensive background of teaching anxious and unconfident students on a one-to-one basis, I seek to establish an immediate rapport through welcoming discussion, positivity and reassurance.

My services include GCSE/A-Level English and History tuition, as well as general computing, Microsoft Office and ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence).

I take a welcoming and friendly approach to sessions where I value my student’s input for session goals. My tuition covers a wide range including general teaching, revision techniques, essay writing and understanding specifications. My teaching involves a mixture of discussion, demonstration and instruction to suit each student’s preference. For English, I also specialise in presentation planning and delivery for Speaking and Listening modules. Through a combination of calm discussion and practice, it is my aspiration to build my students’ skills by building a passion for the subject based on their own interests and goals. This approach has proved highly effective with my students and I have a strong satisfaction and success rate within my work history.
