I am an experienced tutor and examiner and aim to teach English at the highest level to ensure improvement and success.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach English and study skills at all levels and I also prepare students for drama school auditions.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
These include BA Hons English, PGCE, a post-graduate Diploma in Social Administration and Solicitors’ Examinations.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £35 an hour.
- Where do you teach?
I teach at home in Ealing. Parking is available in the street except for the hours of 10-11 and 3-4. The Piccadilly Line is 10 minutes walk away and the District and Central Line about 15 minutes.
- When are you available?
At the moment I have spaces in the late afternoon on Mondays and Tuesdays and also on Saturday afternoon.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I usually teach students from the age of 15 as that is when serious preparation begins for public exams.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for A level, the International Baccalaureate and GCSE.
- What kind of experience do you have?
A level, GCSE and International Baccalaureate teaching and examining have been a central part of my career, but I have also taught English at all levels from literacy and as a second language to research skills and essay structure for struggling undergraduates. Throughout my career I have also been interested in the process of learning and I have set up study skills centres in two large London colleges and worked 1:1 with many students who were having difficulty with essays, note taking and time management. Frequently these students were studying subjects other than literature and sometimes were dyslexic.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
I studied at University College London, the London School of Economics and the College of Law. I have also done acting training at the Questors Theatre.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
Recent tutees have included an A level student who had difficulty understanding texts and structuring essays, a GCSE student who found Shakespeare baffling, an International Baccalaureate student preparing for Higher Level English Literature and a university student who was having problems writing essays.
