Claire - Teddington - School English

Methodology

If you are looking for a teacher to support, encourage, motivate and inspire, please get in touch. I am passionate about opening up new worlds of knowledge for my students, and in so doing, instilling a love of learning and greater self-confidence.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach English Literature, primarily at A-level and Undergraduate level. I also teach GCSE English. As a qualified classical musician, I offer instrumental lessons in piano, flute, singing and music theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am an English honours graduate (UCL) with qualified teacher status (PGCE/ QTS). I hold the Diploma in Music Performance (DIpABRSM) from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. I have Grade 8 (Distinction) in piano, flute & singing.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40 per hour

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my house in Teddington (Richmond upon Thames).

- When are you available?

I am available to teach at various times during the week & on Saturday and Sunday. I offer daytime sessions, as well as after-school and evening slots. I am also available during school holidays, particularly July & August, when students can make major strides forward in their learning and enter the next academic year with more confidence and skill.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach GCSE and A-level students; undergraduates & those preparing for university study. Music-wise, I teach all ages, from young children to adults.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE English Literature
A-level English Literature (AS & A2)
Cambridge Pre-U
ABRSM & Trinity music examinations

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor pupils via Skype, phone and email. I also offer essay marking & feedback for those preparing for examinations. The same rates apply per hour.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The best route to inspiration and success is to find a teacher whose passion for their subject ignites your own; the right teacher can unlock skills that allow you to excel and fulfil your potential in any area of life. I would encourage you to invest in your learning and follow your dreams!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I taught in independent schools for 9 years, as a teacher of both English and Music. I have had private students for 13 years, including those who are preparing for university entrance and who are currently undergraduates. I am an examiner for A-level English Literature.

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

I hold a recent DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied Music at the Royal College of Music in London. I read English at UCL (University College London), graduating in 2002; I completed my PGCE at Roehampton University in 2005, and achieved Qualified Teacher Status in 2006.
