Andrew - Becontree - ESOL (English)

Methodology

Summer Holiday 2018 Offer!!! 11+ lessons are now available from £35.00 per hour for new pupils. As an Oxford University graduate and qualified teacher (PGCE, QTS), I also greatly enjoy teaching French, German, Spanish, English, 7+ & 13+.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

11+; French, German, Spanish; English skills (Comprehension, Creative Writing, Essay Writing, Handwriting & Spelling); English as a Foreign Language (EFL); Elocution & spoken English; and 13+ and 7+. All 11+ subjects are covered: i.e. English, Maths, VR & NVR.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a 2:1 in Modern Languages (French and German) from University College, Oxford. I have passed DELE/CEFR Spanish Level A2 at the Instituto Cervantes, London. I am also a qualified Modern Languages teacher (QTS) with a PGCE from King's College, London. I gained 3 'A's at A-Level in English, French and German from Bancroft's School, and a 'Merit' in S-Level German. I speak with Received Pronunciation (Oxford English).

Please visit my website - using the link above - to find out more.

- How much do you charge?

As an Oxford University graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), my charges are commensurate with my education, qualifications, professional expertise and results (see above and below).

I have two rates: a lower rate for pupils who come to my study in my home in Becontree; and a higher rate for pupils whom I visit to teach in their homes. These higher fees are fully inclusive of my travel expenses to your home or workplace, if you live in the boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge, Havering or Newham.

If you live further afield, an additional travel expense surcharge is likely to apply.

Lessons in my Study:

I charge £40 per hour for all lessons given in my home.

Lessons in your Home:

I charge £42 per hour for all work undertaken with primary school-aged children (7+, 11+, and Key Stages 1 & 2 Modern Languages); and £45 per hour for secondary-level and adult pupils. The £42.00 rate represents a £3.00 per hour discount for younger children on my travelling rate of £45.00 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach in my study at home in Becontree; or in students' homes or places of work elsewhere in London and Essex.

Please visit my website - using the link above - to find out more about my catchment area.

- When are you available?

My current teaching days are Mondays (at home); Tuesdays; Thursdays; Fridays; & Saturdays.

Please telephone me to find out which slots are available.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach Key Stages 1-5 (ages 5-18) and adults. As a qualified secondary school teacher, my principal areas are Key Stage 3, GCSE and A-Level. However, in 2014 I undertook further professional training and also carried out several classroom observations at top public schools* in the primary/preparatory phase in order to be able to teach Key Stages 1-2 effectively. Since that time I have taught many primary-school-aged children on a weekly basis.

*The schools in which I carried out lesson observations include Bryanston, Christ's Hospital, Norwich School, Radley College, Godstowe and Bancroft's Prep. I have also taught classes at Swanbourne House and Forest Prep.

Please visit my website (using the link above) to watch short video clips of lessons given to a 5-year-old French pupil and an adult EFL client.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Independent and grammar school entrance exams at 11+, 13+ & 7+; Key Stages 1, 2 & 3; GCSE; A-Level; and University.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I taught for some time in a state secondary school in east London, in addition to undertaking a short period of supply teaching. I now focus on one-to-one teaching, and have a regular client base in London and Essex.

A large proportion of my current pupils are 11+ exam candidates.

Many of my pupils have either attended or gained entrance to high-ranking public schools such as St. Paul's Girls' School, Eton College, Cheltenham Ladies' College, City of London School for Boys, City of London School for Girls, Bancroft's, Forest & Chigwell. Grammar school successes include The Henrietta Barnet School, Woodford County High School for Girls, Chelmsford, Westcliff and others.

Recent successes in 2016-2018 include one pupil who came 1st out of 900 applicants for Woodford County High School for Girls, in addition to gaining a place at The Henrietta Barnet School, and another pupil who was awarded an academic scholarship at a London independent school.

I have lived in both France and Germany for extended periods of time, and I have recently been working on a translation of a seventeenth-century classical French text. I am also experienced in public recitation.

To hear me speak French, please watch the short video embedded on this page and also on my website (address above).

I also have experience in homeschooling, having taught both a primary school-aged pupil and an A-Level German candidate.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes. My DBS certificate is dated 23 January 2014, and will be available for clients to inspect at the first appointment. My degree certificate, PGCE, teacher's licence and other documentation relating to my training and expertise will likewise be offered for inspection at the same time.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at University College, Oxford; King's College, London; and the Instituto Cervantes, London.

Please visit my website - using the link above - to read my full biography.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have recently worked with some exceptional 11+ candidates who have won scholarships and places at some of the top independent and grammar schools listed above.

These successes include one pupil who came 1st out of 900 applicants for Woodford County High School for Girls, in addition to gaining a place at The Henrietta Barnet School, and another pupil who was awarded an academic scholarship at Forest School, and a Drapers' Scholarship at Bancroft's.

Please visit my website - using the link above - to read the full list of recent results on the 11+ Page.

His teaching skills are amazing!

D
Dr. T.M., Wickford, Essex

We engaged Mr Cremer quite urgently for intensive tuition in revision of French grammar for our 10 and 8 year old sons. Our boys are heading to a new French school and required someone capable and fluent in French to remind them of what they had forgotten over the summer. We were extremely fortunate to find Mr.Cremer. His knowledge and grasp of the French language is complete.

D
Dr. T.M., Wickford, Essex

We are a multi-lingual French-speaking family and were all greatly impressed by him. He is a serious, yet engaging teacher, punctual and extremely competent.

My sons, when asked what they thought of him after the first lesson, simply replied: 'first class'.

M
Mrs Patel, Newham, London

The most important thing is the teacher. Mr Cremer is highly qualified, he has broad knowledge, and was extremely well-prepared for his class. Mr Cremer is a caring and easy-going teacher. Mr Cremer is not only an excellent teacher, but also he impressed me as a knowledgeable, responsible, strict but impartial teacher.

M
Mrs Patel, Newham, London

Apart from teaching German itself, he also taught the right way to learn it. He has a great sense of humour that reduces barriers, and lightens the atmosphere, especially in a difficult topic in the class. He has the ability to carry his students far and gain more respect.

M
Mr Aruviereh, Essex

My impression of Mr Andrew Cremer on my first contact with the office is that his customer service ability is excellent because he listens and advises on what the better option is. I would recommend AJB Language Tuition any day, anytime and anywhere for their prompt service.
