English EFL Tutor, English Lit, French Language, 24 years Experience, Retired teacher, Creative Writer

Methodology

Hi, I give tutorials to high school Scottish NAT 5, Higher and Advanced Higher students, also English as a Foreign or Other Language, as well as French language at high school level. I tutor in my own home with wife and kids present, or in the student's place with an 18 years sibling or other family member present. I have tutored with great success for 10 years now, with plenty of testimonials available, both by phone and email. Tutorials are tailored to the requirements of the student, with many resources being supplied by me.
I taught English as a Foreign Language in Hong Kong for 8 years, so i have some Cantonese as well as fluent French, some German and Spanish. I use all current methods of teaching familiar to students in schools in Britain, as well as EFL techniques for English 2nd Language users.
My specialty is creative writing, as I am also a poet, playwright, novelist and short story writer. I am a member of the FWS (Federation of Writers Scotland), and SAW (Scottish Association of Writers). I can help with your folio work writing reflective essay, short story, discursive/persuasive essays, biography, anything.
I also provide a proofreading service, and editing. My rates are reasonable, negotiable for those struggling to pay.

Experience

Ive taught for 24 years, in Scotland, Belgium and Hong Kong.
In that time I've taught literally thousands of students. A number of them have stayed in touch, even some Chinese students who are now parents themselves, and married.
Many many students have passed through my classes, and been very successful.
