« Mary is the best English Ielts teacher I have ever had. She is friendly, patient, dedicated and intelligent. With her great help, I have achieved the necessary Ielts grade I needed for university and even developed a strong passion for learning English after her lessons. I wish I could have started my lessons earlier as she has not only enabled me to significantly improve my command of English but she also taught me how to enjoy learning. »

Mary - Central Bristol - Italian

Methodology

I believe lessons should be fun, varied and interactive but also aimed at a level which will push the student to achieve their potential.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am a qualified teacher of English as a Foreign Language and I specialise in Academic English and exam preparation for PET, FCE, CAE and IELTS. I also teach intermediate French and beginner Italian.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a TEFL Diploma (now know as a DELTA), a BA Hons in French and Italian, a PGCE to teach French and Italian and a Masters in Education Studies.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £25 per hour. Rates for groups are negotiable. I prefer to do consultation via email or on the phone beforehand whenever possible.

- Where do you teach?

I live on the outskirts of Bristol, 5 miles from Clifton and 8 miles from Portishead close to the M5 motorway. I prefer to teach at my home and offer a small discount in this case. I can travel to the student's home as long as it is within reasonable travelling distance (about 15 minutes maximum by car).

- When are you available?

I am available some mornings and afternoons from Monday to Friday. Generally I would prefer not to have lessons in the evenings or at the weekend but this may be possible short term or in exceptional circumstances.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach teenagers and adults from beginner to advanced level in EFL. I teach beginner or intermediate French and beginner Italian.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for IELTS, First Certificate in English (FCE), Advanced Certificate in English (CAE)
I can also help with essay writing, proof reading and presentation skills.
I have also been teaching students studying for French and Italian GCSE

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

A consultation via email or phone would be the starting point to establish the student's needs. Ideally the lessons would consist of weekly lessons via skype or on the phone and I would give regular feedback of written work submitted online. Students would also be directed to online language practice.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I taught EFL in language schools in Europe for several years after my degree and I was an EFL teacher in a Hong Kong secondary school for 12 years. After qualifying with my PGCE I taught French and Italian in a secondary school in Bristol to GCSE and A Level. While in Hong Kong I worked for over 7 years as an examiner for the Hong Kong Exams Authority and examined oral and written papers for the Hong Kong certificate exam in English. I was also an oral examiner at the British Council in Hong Kong for 4 years. Currently I teach FCE, CAE and Ielts classes and during the summer I teach international students who are preparing to enter British university courses helping them with academic English and study skills such as essay writing and presentation skills. I also work as an examiner for some EFL exams.

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

I work at a local FE college

- Where and with whom did you train?

Chichester College (TEFL diploma), Portsmouth University (BA), York University (PGCE), Sheffield University (MEd),

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the IFL - an organisation for lecturers in further education and IATEFL which is an organisation for EFL teachers.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Currently I am preparing students for IELTS, FCE and CAE exams at the local college and I teach general intermediate and speaking/listening English courses as well. On an individual basis I have a number of students, for example I am teaching beginner Italian to a young college student and I have a student who is studying for the Ielts exam. I have also been helping a university student with her presentations and dissertation for her Masters degree.
