I have a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Secondary Technology. This is supported with an MSc in Mechanical Engineering and BEng Computer Aided Engineering.

I charge £20 per hour as a basic fee but this can be negotiable on long term intensive teaching contracts and group work is at £12 per hour. Travel is approximately half hourly rate. I also provide support for University and IELTS application form filling and submission for half hourly rate.
In addition to this I also offer host families for your stay at £20 per night Full Board this includes all meals and half board at £18 per night which includes two meals a day. Additional services here are Internet, washing and gas and electric bills included.

I offer fresh ground coffee at break time to my students to maintain a professional atmosphere and relaxed learning environment. The lessons are presented on laptop computer and projector, with supporting booklets and also on-line through Skype to support distance learning where files are accessed via Dropbox.

I am available on a 9am until 6pm basis, but can accommodate students needs in the evenings or weekends as required on-line with Skype.

In addition to this I have two years Special Educational Needs experience which includes college level teaching numeracy and literacy. My English teaching has been over a three year period at the English Study Centre and part time through Reivers Education.
I have also gained experience through my Leonardo projects.

Yes.

Currently I am preparing students for IELTS Academic and General, who look set to sit their exams soon. In addition to this I have been undertaking projects in the Leonardo Da Vinci program which has been fantastic.
