Colleen - Sunbury-on-Thames - School English

Methodology

I am a mature mother of 4 children - 3 girls and 1 boy. I am a 2015 DBS checked, qualified, hugely experienced and successful teacher of English Language and Literature - oh, and modest with it!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English tuition for age groups 5-16yrs.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Certificate of Education with Distinction in the practice of Education.

- How much do you charge?

£25 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I am a firm believer that to prosper a child needs to feel comfortable and relaxed. Within that atmostphere I try to do whatever I can to achieve our objectives. I am happy to work in your home or mine, although I find lessons in my home seem to be more `psychologically effective`. I am based in Lower Sunbury opposite the river, close to Hampton, Middlesex.

I travel up to an 8 mile radius.

- When are you available?

Flexible times on weekdays and weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

5-16yrs.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Key Stage 1-4 - SAT's all stages - 11+ - Common Entrance - GCSE English language

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am here to work with you to help you feel more confident and more in control of the subject, so that you can achieve your hopes and aspirations in a calm and effective way.

I have always believed that everyone deserves and needs to be equipped with literary skills to achieve their best experiences and opportunities in life. All round confidence establishes and grows with feeling at ease with vocabulary and reading and writing skills. Intellectual, Social and Emotional Development naturally follows.

I arrange a personalised learning programme specifically for your needs. I listen to your requirements and focus our work individually. I can work on issues of difficulty within your current curriculum if required and towards forthcoming exams, whether that is Common Entrance or a Key Stage.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I was appointed as the Head of the English Department of a very large Secondary School when I was only 24 yrs old and led a team of 14 full-time teachers to success.

I have many, many years experience working with children aged 5-16yrs.

I can help specifically with:

Reading
Handwriting
Comprehension
Spelling
Public Speaking
Poetry
Literature
Punctuation
Syntax
Creative Writing
Exam Preparation

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

2015 CRB checked.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I qualified with Distinction in the practice of education from St Mary's University, Twickenham.
