Kate - Sedbergh - School English

Methodology

Help offered with GCSE English Language and Literature by a well qualified, experienced teacher who is also a Senior Marker with one of the most popular examination boards.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach English Language and Literature, Latin, French and Maths.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a PGCE from Cambridge University and a BA Honours from Leeds University. I attended The Belvedere School in Liverpool where I gained 9 GCSEs and 4 A Levels.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 per hour for online or face to face tuition.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home but do travel to students' homes in exceptional circumstances. My base is in Kirkby Lonsdale which is handy for Cumbria, Lancashire and North Yorkshire. I also have a base in Sedbergh. Both Sedbergh and Kirkby Lonsdale are easily accessible from the M6 and Kendal, so I see students from all over South Lakeland and North Lancashire. I am willing to travel up to 20 miles if time and fuel are paid for.

- When are you available?

I am available all days by arrangement.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all secondary age range, and specialise in GCSE.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for GCSE, various boards.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor online or at my home.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

English in schools is distinctively different from other subjects - if there was a league table for subjects that makes students think 'I don't know what you want me to do...', English would be at the top of it. As Sam says in 'Holes', I can fix that.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I've tutored and taught in secondary schools for 10 years, and examined for 5.

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

I hold an up-to-date DBS and am registered with the Update Service.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained as a secondary teacher at the University of Cambridge with the Classics Department.
