Davina - Hexham - ESOL (English)

Methodology

All students will benefit from individual teaching. I hope I can help them enjoy learning languages while becoming more proficient.
(Please note that I am unable to accept more A'Level students at the moment.)

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach French from Beginners to university entrance level, German from Beginners to GCSE, English Language and English Literature to GCSE level and English as a Foreign Language. I am also a qualified translator, proofreader and copy editor.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA(Hons.) degree from Birmingham University and have spent a year studying abroad at the Universite Francois Rabelais, Tours, France. I have a PGCE from Oxford University in secondary Modern Languages, an MA in French from Oxford Brookes University, a Diploma in Translation from the Institute of Linguists, a post-graduate Diploma in Information Management from Northumbria University (Distinction), a TEFL Training Certificate (Grade A 'Outstanding') and a Certificate in Educational Studies (TESOL) from the College of Teachers.I have also studied for specialist EFL teaching modules in Grammar Awareness and Teaching Business English. More recently I have obtained qualifications in proofreading and copy editing from the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.

- How much do you charge?

Charges are as listed per hour. 30 min. lessons are half the hourly rate, rounded up to the nearest £. Translation would normally be charged by the number of words, so the hourly rate is approximate. New students are asked to attend an initial meeting, which is free. Group lessons (max 5) are charged at one full individual rate plus additional students at 50% of the full rate. For example, a group of 5 students learning French for beginners would be charged £45 or £9 each.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home. Individual arrangements can be made for students in the Hexham/Corbridge area who are unable to come to my home.

- When are you available?

I am available between 10am - 6pm on Monday and Thursday, 2 - 6pm on Tuesday and 10 - 12.30pm on Wednesday morning. I do not teach after 6pm, on a Friday or at the weekend. School students are not required to attend during school holidays. If these times are not convenient, it is sometimes possible to make alternative arrangements, so please get in touch.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and levels, as specified.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Internal school examinations, GCSE and A Levels, IELTS exam. preparation.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have a Skype connection for online tutoring and would also use email to contact my students.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I enjoy teaching and have a thorough knowledge of my subject. Individual lessons will help you progress more quickly, whether you are learning purely for enjoyment, or for business, or to pass exams, or all three.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have worked in education and training since I first qualified as a teacher. Apart from individual tuition, I have 14 years full-time teaching experience (French, German, English and some Spanish) in the state secondary education sector and have also worked as a supply teacher. I spent 11 years as a Head of Department in two different schools. I have taught adults as part of a Community Education programme (6 years). I also now accept work as a translator, proofreader and editor.

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

No - this was not a requirement when I was employed as a full-time teacher. I can, however, provide references if required.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I did my teacher training at the Department of Education, Oxford University. My college was St Edmund Hall. In addition to my other qualifications, I trained at Northumbria University as a mentor for students taking courses in Initial Teacher Training.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

General Teaching Council*(March 2012) Institute of Translation and Interpreting, Society for Editors and Proofreaders and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers.(ATL)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently teach a number of students who are learning French, ranging from Beginners to A'Level standard. I am also teaching German (GCSE) and preparing students for IELTS exams. In the recent past, interest has also been expressed in courses in Business French.
