Madeleine - Kenilworth - School English

Methodology

I have been a University Lecturer and College Tutor for the last 10 years, tutoring Undergraduates, college students and private individuals. In my spare time I write novels, practise yoga,and walk my dog.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English Language and Literature, creative writing, sociology and English as a Second Language.
I also teach Yoga.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

MA in Creative Writing
BSc in Social Sciences
Post Grad Certificate in Education, Research Studies
Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30.00 for GCSE, iGCSE, A Level (AS), and £35.00 for Undergraduate work; for a single student.
English as a second Language will be £30.00
Yoga classes are £50 to travel to your home (within 10 mile radius) for up to 2 students.

I am happy to take up to three students at a time, and will charge an extra £5.00 per student. Working in small groups can sometimes be even more beneficial that on a one-2-one basis.

If you wish me to travel to your house to teach there will be extra fees, which are set on an individual basis.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home, in Warwickshire.
5 miles from Coventry, 3 miles from Kenilworth and 3 miles from Warwick (approximately.)
I am happy to travel to either Warwick, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa and Coventry - but this will incur extra costs for travelling.
For Yoga only, I do not teach at home, but would need to come to a suitable space of your choosing.

- When are you available?

I am available on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings.
And Saturdays or Sundays.
Bank holidays would be by special agreement only.
I am available some of the school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from 14 years and up.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare my students for iGCSE, GCSE, A Levels.
I also can help with writing reports, essays etc., study skills and research skills for Undergraduates.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am available for any online tutition. I have a webcam, and am able to use SKYPE where necessary. I can set up a forum page, or use other social media group pages. Emails etc. Facebook, WhatsApp.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I believe that Learning any subject should be an enjoyable occupation. I like to find out about my students interests and then use these to help them put their studies into practise. This does not mean that it will not be challenging at times! Because I myself like to learn, and gain knowledge, I believe that I pass this enthusiasm on to my students as they make new discoveries.
And because I like to learn, I enjoy teaching.

I am an experienced college and university tutor and I specialise in teaching GCSE English.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I tutor GCSE English, Functional Skills English, and ESOL for a local FE College, I lecture in Advanced Creative Writing for the Open University, and have previously tutored Sociology to A Level.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have an MA in Creative Writing, and a BSc Hons in Social Sciences. I also have A level English, and a PG Certificate in Research Skills.
I also have a Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

- How much do you charge?

My fees are based on one student coming to my home for lessons.
If you wish me to travel to your address there will be extra charges incurred. Travel expenses are on request, as distance is not always the issue.

English GCSE, Sociology GCSE and Functional Skills English are £30.00 per hour.
FE Subjects are £35.00 per hour
Dissertation proof reading is £40.00 per hour.

For each Extra Student add £5.00 to the hourly rate.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach from home, due to the loss of time travelling. I am based near Kenilworth. Therefore I am happy to travel to Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Warwick, and some areas of Coventry, plus the surrounding villages.

- When are you available?

My hours of work are all day Saturday and Sunday. I am also available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evening.

I obtained my BSc from The Open University, and then attended the University of Sussex for my MA.
My Post Graduate Certificate was obtained at University of Winchester.
CELTA course was run by Eastleigh College in Hampshire.

My students in January all received A or A* in their iGCSE English Results.

* I have just received a lovely email, to inform me a young student who sat her GCSE a year early has obtained a 6. She is very pleased with this.

Madeleine’s a fantastic tutor very trustworthy and reliable.

Nadine

Madeline helped my daughter who was in year 10 to pass her GCSE English Literature with a B. Her approach was student centred. She allowed my daughter to ask questions about areas she was struggling with and she gave her good tips and techniques to use in her exam. Thanks Maidy!!

Madeleine has tutored my little girl in the early stages of primary school - she is extremely patient with her and has made learning fun and interesting. My little girl is now reading and writing better than even and looks forward to her lessons with Madeleine. Madeleine is always on time and prepared.
