Qualified PGCE English Teacher/ Private Tutor - rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted, London

Methodology

I am a creative and enthusiastic teacher and work hard to match my lessons with the needs of students, taking each student on a case by case basis.
I teach ages 3-50, including English as a foreign language, English Literature, creative writing, grammar and functional English skills and SEN and dyslexic students.
I have taught extensively to 11,12, and 13+ students, along with GCSE and Alevel and have an excellent understanding of the various examination boards and their requirements.
I have worked in the UK and abroad with business men and women looking to improve their spoken and written English for work.
I also have a wealth of experience in helping university students tackle difficult essays and assignments, helping them manage their workload more effectively.

Background

I trained at the Institute of Education where I received A/'outstanding' for my teaching. I was quickly promoted to Deputy Head of English in a London day school, where I taught students of all ages and abilities.

In the summer holidays during that time I started to work with adults teaching English as a foreign language and functional English skills.

I have been working now full-time as a private tutor for the past 5 years and have amassed a wealth of experience, both in face-to-face tutoring sessions and via Skype tuition. My skill lies in my ability to plan well structured, methodical lessons that meet clients' needs but that are also engaging and enjoyable!

PERSONAL PROFILE

I am a fully qualified English teacher, rated ‘outstanding’ by the Institute of Education. I have worked with ages 6 – 20 years, both in schools and as a private tutor. My most recent in-school post was Second-in-Command and Key Stage 3 Coordinator for the English Department in a faith school in Tulse Hill. Since then I have worked primarily as a private tutor for families both in the UK and abroad.

I have a strong work ethic and excellent people skills. My strength lies in my ability to plan and deliver engaging lessons that are carefully tailored to specific learning needs and which enable students to meet the requirements of entrance exams, GCSEs and A levels.

I am a History graduate with a First Class MA Hons and have extensive experience teaching and tutoring in this subject.
