Jenna - Sheldon - School English

Methodology

For more information on me, read my interview below and articles poster.
I also have a blog: (concealed information)

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach English from KS1 up to KS4. I also offer A Level English Language and A Level English Literature.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have 9 GCSE's (all grade B-A*.)
I have A Levels in English, Psychology and Geography (all grade A).
I have a BA English (hons) 2.1 from the University of Leicester.
I have QTS, gained through the Graduate Teacher Program.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £20.00 an hour for KS1-KS4 and £15.00 for A Level tutoring (KS5). I offer a 50% reduction if tutoring two pupils together (at the same time) so £20.00 an hour for 1, becomes £30.00 an hour for 2. Travel fees can be negiotated depending on time of day/ distance.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at the student's home (although students can travel to me if prefered). I cover the following areas: Birmingham, Redditch, Worcester, Solihull, Warwickshire and Coventry.

- When are you available?

I am usually avaliable from 4pm onwards on weekdays and have some availabilty at weekends. I can tutor in the daytime of school holidays and half terms.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from primary school age (4+) right up to A Level (18-Adult learners)

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

This really depends on the tutee. I can use the internet to supplement current tutoring arrangements, via facebook, msn and email. I am not familiar with skype but can learn if needed!

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am an enthusiastic tutor with a real passion for my subject. I believe that every pupil can access the English National Curriculum and it is the teacher's job to find ways for the child to do this. I am creative in my approach and use a variety of different strategies to meet my objective including lots of visual and kinesthetic activities (such as using mini-whiteboards, drama activities etc). I believe learning should be engaging and fun! With each new tutee, I spend a trial lesson (of which there is no charge for) assessing their current level/grade and agreeing targets.

If you are an adult learner/ A Level student then I may be able to offer you special rates, as I have less experience in this area.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a full time teacher of English. I have experience of teaching KS3-KS4 and tutoring KS2-KS5. For KS4 I have experience in teaching to the WJEC, AQA and EdExcel GCSE Exam specification, as well as WJEC Entry Level English. I have experience in teaching pupils with special needs, including ADHD, autism and behavioural difficulties.

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

Yes I have a recent CRB disclosure certificate (June 2009)
