Michael - Hollingdean - ESOL (English)

Methodology

After 28 years I still love teaching and am always ready to spend time outside for classroom designing lessons specific to my students' needs. I never teach from a text book alone but create my own materials suited to the students I am teaching.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach IELTS, FCE, General English, Academic English, Business English, English Pronunciation, Essay Writing, Study Skills, Proof-Reading.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Teaching English: CELTA - DELTA BA Hons Philosophy PGCE PGCE Post 16

- How much do you charge?

If a student travels to me I charge £25 an hour, which includes lesson preparation and the marking of homework. If I have to travel to a student then the hourly rate increases depending on my travel time. For two students £15 per hour. For three students £10 per hour. Larger groups are possible and the fee would be negotiable.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home or am willing to travel without any charge in a five mile radius of Brighton town centre. Outside this area I would charge according to the time needed to travel.

- When are you available?

I am available most days, morning, afternoon, and evening, and at weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Generally, 16 upwards. I can teach all levels: beginners, pre-intermediate, intermediate, upper intermediate, advanced and post-advanced

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

The exams listed above and university entry for anyone wishing to improve aspects of their English before starting their course.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am committed to supporting my students to achieve their goals. I do not forget about them when the class ends but work on records of my teaching and their learning in order to maximise learning at our next session.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 28 years experience of teaching English as a foreign language. I have taught exam courses for FCE, IELTS, CAE, and Cambridge Proficiency here and abroad. I have taught acadmic and business English. I have taught specialist classes in pronunciation, essay writing, giving presentations, and conversational / colloquial English.

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

Yes, I do.

- Where and with whom did you train?

International House, Hastings. The Eastbourne School of English, Eastbourne. The Univeristy of Manchester.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the University Union of teachers, (UCU).

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Currently I teach at the University of Brighton teaching English to students in preparation for their university entry. I also teach at City College Brighton and Hove where I teach an FCE class and a general English class to immigrants from various countries.
