All aspects of English & ESOL. Based in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Degree, PGCE with 40+ years teaching experience - in schools, colleges, community centres and 1:1 tuition.

Methodology

I remain, after many years as a teacher, enthusiastic and dedicated to helping people learn. Acquiring knowledge is, of course, paramount but I take great pains to ensure that the learning experience is enjoyable.

As a result of my considerable experience, I am able to offer lessons that are personalised to the requirements of the individual student. I am also able to offer sessions to a wide range of students (from KS1 - GCSE Language as well as adults and ESOL).

I offer online tuition, face-to-face in the student's home as well as group sessions.

I am able to offer a range of session formats to suit needs and preferences. Sessions are led by the student's/parents' wishes.

I thoroughly enjoy my teaching and believe my lessons are both effective and enjoyable. All my students have achieved their desired goal, whether this has been an examination pass or improvement in specific areas.

Background

In my 40 years as an English teacher/tutor, I have taught across a wide range of levels (Pre-school - A Level English); adults and children and in a variety of settings (schools, colleges, in students' homes and also in the work place).

For the last 10 years I have been a part-time as a lecturer in Functional Skills English and ESOL. I have also worked as a private tutor for many years.

As a result, I am familiar with students of a wide range of ages, abilities and backgrounds. This includes students of many different nationalities.

I am happy to undertake tutoring a wide range of English skills, for examination purposes, to enhance integration, improve job prospects or simply for pleasure.

Past students have commented that my sessions are very effective and enjoyable. Particular emphasis has been made of my ability to explain ideas and information very clearly and that sessions are designed to meet their individual requirements. Students have also commented that not only do they gain skills but also confidence.

All students s or series of sessions.Those taking examinations have been successful, others have succeeded in gaining employment, whilst further students have found themselves able to integrate into their community and carry out everyday social tasks.
