After assessing your child's stage of learning, I will prepare a learning plan, which is then used to form the structure of each lesson. At the beginning of the lesson, I discuss the learning objectives with the child. Reading and spelling provide an important base; I then follow with a reading comprehension piece, or grammar section. To develop your child's writing skills, I encourage writing in different genres for example, persuasive, informative and descriptive styles. Speaking and listening is also an important part of the English curriculum at school, so during the lesson, some discussion of thoughts and ideas are encouraged. All of these skills that your child practices, are essential to making great progress. At the end of each lesson I review what has been achieved. This will be followed up by a short written report, where any areas of progress and suggestions for further improvement will be mentioned. I usually give homework, as this provides further practice for your child, and consolidation of his/her learning.
I have given classroom English lessons in school, and private tuition over the last 15 years for children at Key stage 2 level. My students have benefited from developing confidence and ability in their reading, writing and speaking skills. They have achieved good results in school SATS tests and 11+ entrance exams.

I taught English (British National Curriculum) to children aged 11-15 in a British International school from 2006-2009. The lessons were divided between reading and assessing literature, creative writing, use of grammar, speaking and listening.
Since then I have been tutoring English to children aged 7-11, preparing them for school assessment tests such as SATS and 11+
This is a critical stage in children's education, where a strong understanding and love of the use of language will really help them to make progress in all subjects. I encourage a love of reading of a wide variety of material. I also find that children enjoy expressing their thoughts and ideas both verbally and in writing; the lessons provide them with this framework.
I hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from Sunderland University, 2004
