GCSE English Tutor in Astley Bridge - RuthBC

Methodology

Experienced GCSE English teacher of AQA and Edexcel specifications. Current AQA examiner.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Qualified Teacher Status - secondary English. BA(Hons) English - First Class. MA English - Distinction.

- How much do you charge?

1:1 tuition at my home or within a 10 mile radius is £25-£30 per hour depending on level. A small travel cost will be added for distances beyond 10 miles. Reduced per student rates can be negotiated for tutoring two or more students together.

- Where do you teach?

I offer home tuition within Bolton, Bury and some parts on Blackburn with Darwen, Salford and North Manchester. I can also provide tuition at my home in Sharples, Bolton. Online or telephone tuition can also be arranged.

- When are you available?

Weekday evenings from 7pm, Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

My experience is mainly in years 7-11. However, I am familiar with the Key Stage 2 curriculum and would be confident in teaching from Year 5 upwards.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE English Language and Literature
Level 2 Functional Skills English
KS2 SATs

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can edit, review and comment on written work via email. I can also offer tuition via telephone or Skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

In our first session, I will spend time getting to know you, including how you learn best, and understanding your key strengths and which areas you need to develop. I can help build your confidence and skills, and explain exactly what the examiner will be looking for.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught to GCSE level in four secondary schools, including my current school. I am currently teaching the new AQA language and literature specifications to Years 10 and 11, and am also preparing Year 9 students for their exam courses. I marked over 800 scripts for the new English GCSE in summer 2017, and am therefore extremely knowledgeable about the mark scheme and assessment criteria.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

BA and MA at University of Southampton.
Qualified Teacher Status at Manchester Metropolitan University

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Association of School and College Leaders

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I teach students with a wide range of abilities in years 9 to 11. I also provide 1:1 home tuition to a pupil who is just entering Year 11, and to two adult learners, one studying GCSE English language, and one Level 2 Functional Skills.
