« When I started with Peter I needed my confidence to be boosted. I had only got a D for my last English GCSE exam but needed an A in order to do teacher training. Thanks to Peter I achieved an A and will be start training this autumn. He was patient and provided stimulating and challenging lessons which helped my writing. He was reliable, attentive and trustworthy, and would go the extra mile to make sure I knew how to improve my English. Peter is an excellent tutor and I would recommend him to anyone. »

Peter - Southville - School support

Methodology

My central aim as a tutor is to point out the range and depth of interest that English or Psychology can deliver: you learn in your own way as your intrinsic engagement with the subject is enhanced.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I provide tuition in GCSE and A-Level English, and, GCSE and A-Level Psychology and University Level Educational Studies; also, I teach Study Skills and Essay Writing. In addition to this I can offer to proof-read initial drafts of work prior to final editing.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I first studied with the Open University for a BA (Honours) degree in Humanities gaining a 2:1, and also completed a PGCE in Further Education at Cardiff University. In January 2008, at Bristol University, I was awarded a Master of Education degree: Psychology of Education pathway.

- How much do you charge?

My charges for tutoring in GCSE English and Psychology are £20.00 per hour; A-Level tuition is £25.00 per hour for both subjects. For both English and Psychology, reduced charges can be considered on a person-by-person basis. As regards small group tuition, charges per individual student are less than for 1:1 tuition. Any significant travel costs may be included in the overall charge. For Study Skills and Essay Writing, which I offer up to and including University Level, the charge is £27.50 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach in Central Bristol - often in Bristol Central Library, or other suitable venues such as quiet cafes - and am willing to travel to students' homes.

- When are you available?

Most weekday evenings and on weekends; weekdays also possible: in general, I am flexible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach mainly 16+. Principal levels: GCSE, A-Level and University Level; mature students - including those engaged in undergraduate study - are welcome, as well as those looking to build their confidence in the process of a return to studying at whatever level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE English A-Level English GCSE Psychology A-Level Psychology; University Level Educational Studies.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use e-mail as a means of providing on-line tuition, and am open to making use of other methods.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught in a sixth-form college. My main experience is in providing 1:1 and small group tuition in GCSE and A-Level English, and I have been doing this since 2002. In addition to this I have taught English to younger secondary school-age children, as well as helping undergraduate and post-graduate students to address various aspects of their writing. The age range I have taught span from around twelve years of age to mid-fifties.

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

My CRB disclosure certificate is up to date.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I completed my teacher training at the University of Wales, Cardiff in the academic year 1999 - 2000: for this, I was awarded a PGCE in Further Education.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the British Psychological Society: Graduate Basis for Chartered Recognition.
