Laura - Clapton - School English

Methodology

I am a dual national, American and British. I have lived in England for 30 years and have a thorough understanding of both educational systems - and both languages!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English at all levels up to and including University, History at all levels also. Spanish up to GCSE level.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA, two MA's, a PhD and a PGCE.

- How much do you charge?

I ask for £15 for the first lesson, to make sure the student and I are a "fit." I usually charge the full fee +£15 if there are two children being tutored at the same time.

- Where do you teach?

I travel to students' homes, or if easier, students can come to me. But I have a (very friendly) dog and some children do not like animals. I travel fairly widely in London, although I only drive far from North London during off-peak hours.

- When are you available?

I am available any day of the week, by negotiation with the family. I can and do work during summers and school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I will teach any age from 10 upwards, almost most of my experience is from ages 12-80!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare my students for English state exams or American exams, secondary and university level.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have tutored using email and Skype.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

i taught full time from 1968 to 2001. From 2001 I tutored and worked part time for the NHS. I have taught both in the US and in the UK, at all levels from junior school to university level.

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

Yes I have an up-to-date DBS.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I belong to the Philological Society (Linguistics), the Institute of Education Post 14-18, and the Professional Tutor's Association.
