« I was struggling with my English GCSE exams. We knew that Gemma was an English teacher before so she tutored me, an hour a week, for 6-8 weeks and my report went from a target E to getting an overall grade of C. Gemma was explaining the questions I didn't get, she would take her time with me so I did get it, and if it went over an hour she didn't mind at all. I wouldn't have had my confidence, nor the knowledge I have now without her. »

In home, secondary school English tutor - Bridgend/Swansea areas covered. BA(Hons) English PGCE

Methodology

Hello, I am a qualified, secondary school English teacher (BA(Hons) English, PGCE), offering one-to-one, in home tutoring.

I cover all aspects of secondary English/English Literature education, including GCSE and coursework/exam prep.

I believe students must be comfortable in their surroundings, therefore I travel to them.

Background

I have been private tutoring for many years now, seeing students achieve significantly improved grades than previously expected. These grades see them achieve their college acceptance goals, and provide a solid foundation for future studies.

I firmly believe that a one-to-one learning environment, in a place, and with a person they are comfortable with, are key to their goal success.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £3

Details

I am willing to cover all of the Bridgend and Swansea areas, but ask that travel expenses be covered. Travel expenses will be calculated by distance travelled.

Gemma's CV

I achieved a BA(Hons) English degree from Trinity College, Carmarthen in 2005, now a part of the University of South Wales, and a PGCE English from Swansea Metroplitan University in 2008.

I have been privately tutoring English and elocution lessons since 2011, and 2003 respectively. As well as doing proofreading work for Chinese translation company from 2011-2012.
I maintain a Facebook page for an English Academy in northern Spain, posting daily (Monday-Friday) all genre of learning material, encouraging page members to broaden their English learning methodologies so as to enhance their understanding of English as a foreign language.

I was struggling with my English GCSE exams. We knew that Gemma was an English teacher before so she tutored me, an hour a week, for 6-8 weeks and my report went from a target E to getting an overall grade of C. Gemma was explaining the questions I didn't get, she would take her time with me so I did get it, and if it went over an hour she didn't mind at all. I wouldn't have had my confidence, nor the knowledge I have now without her.

Gemma has given my daughter private English tuition during her last 2 years of primary school. I have found that my daughter has gained vast experience and has understood practically all of what has been delivered. Gemma made my daughter feel at ease and has always enjoyed her lessons. The English lessons has helped my daughter with reading more fluently. Writing structured sentences and the basic verb, noun, adjective etc.

I have no reservations in recommending Gemma as a private tutor. She communicates with me on the progress of my daughter and what I need to work on with her over the next week. Gemma is approachable and listens to what my concerns are and does encorporate them into the lessons. I highly recommend Gemma to any concerned parents with children having difficulty with their English.
