Qualified English Teacher and Cambridge Graduate looking for GCSE and A-Level students for online tuition

Methodology

Hello! I am a 34 year-old qualified secondary school English teacher with a first class degree in English from Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. I am looking to work with a small number of GCSE and A-Level students alongside my work as a writer.

As I split my time between London and Derbyshire, I am currently available for online tuition only. Although this arrangement arose out of necessity for me, I have found online tuition to be more beneficial for student progress than meeting in person. Using googledocs as a shared virtual workspace offers the benefit of watching each other write in real time, as well as automatically creating revision materials as we work.


Hello! I am a 34 year-old qualified secondary school English teacher with a first class degree in English from Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. From September, I am looking to work with a small number of tutees alongside my work as a playwright.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English is my primary subject of expertise. I also teach acting, having worked as a professional actor for six years prior to becoming a teacher and writer.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a first class degree in English from Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and have qualified teacher status accredited by the Institute of Education at an "outstanding" level. I also have a Diploma in Professional Acting following my training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I can travel to students if it is cyclable from Wirksworth! I am also an experienced online tutor, which has a number of advantages, should this be desirable.

- When are you available?

I currently have availability on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am looking for GCSE or A-Level students only.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor online via Skype and googledocs.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a warm and patient person, qualities which I believe helped me to maintain excellent relationships with all of my students at Bethnal Green Academy. I am extremely thoughtful and methodical in my approach to problem solving and will encourage you as my tutee to be the same. My emphasis will be on the process rather than the outcome, which leads to better long-term results. I look forward to working with you!

Background

In 2016 I left my position at Bethnal Green Academy as English Teacher and Sixth-form Coordinator in English to pursue a career as a freelance teacher, tutor and writer. I was at the school for two years, training there as an English teacher on the School Direct scheme for which I received qualified teacher status at an "outstanding" level. In my final year there I saw a class of 23 year 11 students and 13 sixth-formers through their exams.

I was delighted to find out recently that under my supervision the school achieved its best ever A-level results in English, with every student meeting or exceeding their ambitious target grades. Similarly, all of my year 11 class met or exceeded their target grades. Whilst no teacher or tutor can or should guarantee results, I am delighted that all of the students I have tutored to date have met or exceeded their expectations on results day.

I started tutoring at the age of 16, assisting two boys of 11 and 7 with their school work, and since then have accumulated experience in a wide range of educational environments with tutees of all ages and abilities. At the age of 19, I spent six months as a classroom assistant in Moscow, where I also volunteered as an English language tutor at a centre for Chechen refugees. In addition I worked with students of my own age at Moscow State University, holding literature discussion groups and occasionally giving lectures. Following my time at Cambridge, I worked as a professional actor, during which time I was involved in educational workshops in a variety of settings such as schools, hospitals and prisons.

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

I have a DBS certificate available for inspection which is registered to the DBS update system.
