Experienced, very approachable ESOL and EFL Tutor (Adults); PGCE qualified; English Teacher at The Portsmouth Academy to July 2017; now tutoring students 1-2-1 in GCSE English.

Methodology

Very experienced in personalised learning, I ensure that my students are actively engaged in their lessons to achieve clearly set objectives. I can quickly establish a good rapport with my students and I ensure that they gain in confidence in their learning. I am very patient and supportive and ensure that students are always clear about the lesson objectives and about their progress towards achieving them. My lessons are planned to ensure real progress, which is reviewed regularly. This ensures a high level of motivation to improve. Focused on developing their confidence and the level of their skills in English, I ensure that my students find their lessons with me very rewarding and enjoyable.

Background

I have been teaching for several years and many of my students have achieved better Grades than those predicted for them. I started tutoring English 1-2-1 in September 2017 for 8 hours a week at a good school near Fareham. Before teaching in Secondary Education I successfully prepared many adult overseas students for their Cambridge First and Advanced Certificates in EFL at Richard Language School in Bournemouth and then at Bournemouth University. I have also taught Business English and ESOL.

Penny's CV

PROFILE An experienced English Teacher, awarded OFSTED Grade 1, I now work as a GCSE English Tutor preparing Year 11 students at a school near Fareham for their Exams. Very patient and supportive, I quickly established a good rapport with each of my students and gained their trust. Focused on developing their confidence and level of independence in their learning, I ensure that my students find their lessons rewarding and enjoyable. With their sound understanding of the texts and poems and of how to analyse effectively the writers’ use of language, my students are preparing to do well in their GCSE English exams.
