I am a retired independent secondary school Head of English with 35 years' experience of teaching students from ages nine to nineteen.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
English (Language and Literature)
- Tell me about your qualifications.
M.A.(Oxon) English Language and Literature
Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties
- How much do you charge?
£70 per hour, at my house or online. I only teach single students, not groups.
- Where do you teach?
I teach in my home I live in Pewsey, six miles south of Marlborough in Wiltshire. Other nearby towns include Devizes, Hungerford, Andover and Salisbury.
- When are you available?
Almost any time, including weekends.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach mostly GCSE to A level. Many are GCSE / IGCE or A level students at independent or comprehensive schools.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can use Skype or Evotuition. Skype is better, at the moment because we can share screens and documents which is important to develop writing skills. I would use any system that suits the student. I would normally hope to meet face-to-face before starting, if practical, and occasionally during the sessions. It works better with older students. Younger ones may need an adult beside them. A lot of effective tutoring is best face-to-face, but with the cost of travel that is not always possible. It can work especially well for A level.
- What kind of experience do you have?
Thirty-five years teaching in secondary schools in Yorkshire and Wales and several years' tutoring since retirement.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
