Jane - Cramlington - ESOL (English)

Methodology

I have been teaching languages for 30 years and look forward to helping you, whether you are preparing for exams or are learning for business or pleasure.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

German - beginners to A level and degree level
English as a foreign language. IELTS, Cambridge examinations
Spanish to GCSE
French to GCSE
English Language / Literature to GCSE

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am CELTA qualified and can help you prepare for IELTS and Cambridge examinations. I also offer English for Academic Purposes.
I have a BA hons 2.1 in German and History with a Distinction in Spoken German, and BA Hons in French and Spanish, award pending June 2018.
I have a a PGCE in Secondary Language and History teaching and a Post Graduate Diploma in the Translation of German to English.

- How much do you charge?

KS3, GCSE 25.00 per hour.
A level, degree, adult learners 30.00 per hour.

For journeys for me of under 20 miles return, this includes travel money, for longer journeys I will charge a little bit more, normally about 1.50 each way.

- Where do you teach?

I travel to the student or we can meet in a mutually convenient location. I can also offer lessons via Skype or Facebook video call. I can travel to South East Northumberland, Newcastle Upon Tyne, North Tyneside, Gateshead and depending on times South Tyneside and Sunderland.

- When are you available?

I am generally flexible with availability and can offer some days, evenings and possibly Saturday mornings too, depending on my existing bookings. I will make every effort to accommodate your requirements.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

German: from complete beginners to degree level
French and Spanish: from complete beginner to GCSE
English as a Foreign Language: from complete beginner up to examination preparation (IELTS & Cambridge exams), and English for Academic Purposes.
English for the UK GCSEs in Language or Literature.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for GCSE and A level examinations in England in Spanish, German and French, and also assist students preparing to sit degree level examinations or submit dissertations in German.
I support students who are preparing for IELTS, and Cambridge Examinations and for English for Academic Purposes.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Before the lesson we will have agreed what you want to do and I will have prepared materials for you.
I use my desktop computer to access Dropbox or email to share files with you.
I use my laptop to speak to you via Skype or a Facebook video call.
Before the lesson starts I send any documents to you, so you can either print them or have them on screen during the lesson. Likewise any audio files, so that you can play them. I use a write and wipe board to write vocabulary, comments etc during the lesson and you can see it via the camera and make notes.
You are most welcome to record the lesson for your own revision purposes.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

With recent changes to the way in which languages are examined in English schools, particularly at GCSE which is now all examination, it is more important than ever that you have a really good grasp of the grammar of the language(s) you are learning. This can be fun and empowering and can enable you to really feel confident in your abilities. Students of English as a foreign language face difficult exams (IELTS & Cambridge exams). These can be achieved with the right preparation.
I know that I can make a real difference to both your understanding and your confidence. No question is ever too silly, and I know exactly what it feels like to learn, to be out of my comfort zone, and to sit in that exam hall.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught for nearly 30 years (13 as a Head of Dept). I teach German to all levels and exams (including at a local university), French and Spanish to GCSE. I also teach English as a foreign language, and offer IELTS & cambridge exam preparation as well as English for Academic Purposes. I have a lot of experience with different examination boards at GCSE and A level ( I am an examiner for 2 boards and an NVQ assessor for Business German and French) and have conducted hundreds of speaking tests at GCSE and A level. I have taught students from Key Stage 2 to adults and of a wide range of abilities and currently teach at a local university. I have taught GCSE English Language and Literature to UK students.

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

My most recent DBS certificate is from March 2018 and it is available for you to see.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Post Graduate Certificate in Education (P.G.C.E.) University of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Adults) Newcastle College
BA Hons (Spanish and French) Open University
BA Hons (German and History) University of Sunderland
Diploma in Translation City University, London.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently have students studying for the for Cambridge Advance Examination, A level German, GCSE German and Spanish and beginner's French. My students are a mixture of ages from 15 years old to adult at the current time.
