Profile

My name is Nathan Breakenridge, and I am an English Graduate with a 1st class Honours degree in English and Creative Writing from the University of Dundee and an MLitt in Creative Writing from the University of Stirling. While studying for my undergraduate degree I volunteered as a Creative Writing and English tutor, and in the years since I have undertaken a number of freelance tutoring assignments. I discovered a great love for teaching, and took pride in my newfound ability to identify areas where students are having particular difficulty, and use these areas as a base from which to build a stronger understanding of the subject.

Having studied English throughout my academic career, I have a strong understanding of my field, and of course an incredible enthusiasm for it. The process of understanding and interpreting the written word has always been a source of fascination for me, and I believe that what we can learn from analysing language is truly unlimited – an idea which I find thrilling.

In me you will find a friendly, empathetic and patient educator who is entirely flexible in his approach. My goal is to find out what style of learning is most effective for my students, and tailor my lessons to their needs. This requires an open exchange between teacher and student in order to establish a productive and respectful learning environment. I believe that good teaching is a learning opportunity for the teacher as well as the student.

I am fully certified with a PVG. My rates vary from £20 to £30 depending on level of study.
