About the lesson

Hi. My name is Elaine and I am a full-time professional tutor. I can help your child close gaps in reading, spelling, writing, and Maths in as little as 10 weeks. I offer online lessons and work with home-educated students.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Maths and English.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a B. Ed. (Hons) degree from Reading University. and several diplomas, including in Performance Coaching, Special Educational Needs, Educational Psychology and Reading Intervention. I am currently taking an M.Ed. course.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £28 per hour. I offer all of my students a free initial assessment.

- Where do you teach?

I teach only online, which means no matter where you live, I am able to work with your child and help them to close gaps in learning.

- When are you available?

I currently teach classes on Monday - Thursday between 3 pm - 7 pm, which are all fully booked. I do, however, have some availability to work with home-educated students or international students on Thursdays 11:30 am - 12:30 pm GMT. I also have Tuesdays 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm and Thursdays 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm available.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach maths and English to students aged 5-14 years. I am happy to teach from the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence or from the National Curriculum, having had experience of delivering both. I also work with international students.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use a video conferencing tool called Zoom to teach online lessons. This integrated well with every other available resource in my repertoire, including the use of an excellent interactive whiteboard called BitPaper. I am a firm believer in having fun while we work, so I can promise that my lessons will be fun and engaging.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

If you feel you struggle with maths, reading, spelling or writing, I know I can help you to perform better and feel more confident in your own ability. I can make learning fun!

About Elaine

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 25 years of teaching experience. I worked in schools in England between 1993 and 2010, holding several senior management posts including two deputy headships. I have been a private tutor since 2011 and have an excellent track record in improving children's understanding in many aspects of Maths and English. Please have a look at the YouTube video I have uploaded to find out a little more about me!

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

I have an enhanced European Police Check.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at Reading University as a teacher.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I work with all sorts of students, including children with Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADHD and ASD. Most of my current students are face-to-face but I also do have some online home-educated students at the moment.
