Everyone can be good at English Literature - all it takes is confidence and a bit of help, and this is what I would like to provide. I'm passionate about English, and hope to inspire students to enjoy English too!
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach English from Key Stages 1-3, GCSE and A-Level. I also teach literacy and reading skills at any level, with a clear focus on Key Stages 1 -3. I also offer a proof reading service for all these levels, as sometimes having a pair of fresh eyes read your work makes all the difference!
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have been tutoring for a year now, working with students across a range of ages and abilities; for numerous exam boards and for both public school entrance exams and state school examinations. I have 2:1 English Literature Honours Degree from the University of Exeter, one of the top five universities at which to study English. I graduated in 2010. I also have four A Levels at A grade (including full marks in my English A Level; not bad!) and 11 GCSEs at A* and A grade, and 2 GCSEs at B grade.
- How much do you charge?
My price range increases with the age range:
Key Stage 1 = £15 p/h
Key Stages 2 and 3= £20 p/h
GCSE = £25 p/h
A - Level = £25 p/h
And I also provide a proof reading service at £15 p/h
- Where do you teach?
I am very happy to travel to students' homes around the Ealing, Acton and Chiswick area, for no extra fee. Students are welcome to come to my house, however I do own a pair of rather lively kittens which can make for a rather noisy learning environment, so would prefer to come to the student.
- When are you available?
I am available on Monday afternoon, all day Wednesday, and Thursday and Friday evenings. Extra study sessions on additional weekday evenings or weekend afternoons can be arranged close to essay deadlines/exam time as and when the student and parent feel they may be helpful!
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages, from 4 through to 18. I am able to teach Key Stages 1-3, GCSE and A-Level English.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I am happy to do SATs preparation for Key Stage 2 and 3; and although I will happily look at the skills required for SATs at Key Stage 1 I do not believe in using past papers as a method of teaching at that age.
I also will provide GCSE and A-Level support and revision help.
I have experience in assisting children preparing for public school entry exams.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Everyone is good at English; sometimes it just takes a bit of help and attention to allow you to realise this! I had maths tutoring and it helped me no end; and allowed me to realise I could do it! So if you would like a little bit of help, explanation or improvement please do get in contact.
Rosanna is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
Alongside my year tutoring, I have volunteered in schools for seven years as a teaching assistant, focusing particularly on literacy across various age ranges and abilities. I have also tutored privately for children who are performing above their age's ability in English, to keep them challenged and enjoying English. I was tutored in Maths when I was at primary school; and clearly remember how much the experience improved my ability and confidence, and so can empathise greatly with those I tutor! As a private nanny I am also good with children which certainly helps create a comfortable and secure learning environment.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
The majority of my work experience has been at St Nicholas-at-Wade Primary School, rated Outstanding in the latest Ofsted report.
I cannot thank Rosanna enough for all the help provided prior to my GCSE English exam. Rosanna was very friendly, approachable and offered as much help as possible, despite a busy schedule. Her support and tips helped me ever so much! If only all English teachers were of such credential! Once again, I cannot stress how pleased I am of Rosanna and her support! Highly Recommended ***** !
