Rachel - Wandsworth Common - Sports Science

Methodology

Hello, thank you for looking at my profile. I am a passionate teacher who enjoys learning. I work closely with parents to help the student experience success with topics that previously they have found challenging.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am a trained primary school teacher with almost 17 years classroom experience. I am currently employed at a Prep School in Putney. I have taught all Key Stage 1 and 2 ages groups over recent years. I am happy to teach any primary school core subjects. I tutor several students in English, Mathematics, non verbal and verbal reasoning, 7+, 8+ and SATs and 11+ preparation along with general tuition.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I hold a Bachelor of Education, which was completed in 2001 at Dunedin College of Education in New Zealand. In July 2009 I completed QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) in London. I also have completed post graduate papers in various teaching methods including Action Learning and hold full Scottish, Victorian (Australia) and New Zealand registrations.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour. I am happy to meet with you first, free of charge to discuss general goals for the child or children. I consider students within the area that I live and for an extra charge I would be happy to travel further distances.( no more than £40p/h)

I charge less for 2 or more hours. £50 for 2 hours

- Where do you teach?

I travel by public transport and prefer to teach in the child's home.

- When are you available?

I am currently looking to secure block bookings during the school summer holidays.
I currently have very limited weekly lesson availability (starting at 5.30pm)

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am happy to teach children from 3 to 12 years old.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

7+
8+
11+
SATS

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have supported students with online. My suggested format is as follows
An independent task is emailed a few days before the lesson, this is completed independently (in an agreed time limit)
The task is emailed back to me - is can be either scanned or using a pdf scanner which an be downloaded onto a smart phone. (Free)
I mark the set task.
I then meet with the student via Skype to discuss to work, i assist with feedback, areas of improvement and teaching points.
A new task is set and the routine is repeated,
I adjust this format, time scale etc to suit the individual and family.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a friendly relaxed tutor who gets to know the individual student, their weaknesses and strengths, it is important for me that the children believe that education can be fun and have the chance to develop confidence, ask questions and make mistakes.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have over 17 years teaching experience, this includes experience in New Zealand, Australia and London. During the past 10 years I have worked in several London schools including a large school in Hayes (Middlesex), a school in special measures in Nesden and an independent school in Ealing, a top all girls independent school in South Kensington, a co-educational day school in Victoria, a nursery to sixth form independent school in Lewisham and most recently a successful Preparatory school in Putney.

Yes, I have valid DBS and CRB certificates.

I was impressed with Rachel's total dedication to, and hard work with, the children in her care. She is well organised and a good time manager. She establishes positive relationships with all children, including supporting those with specific learning difficulties and extending those with special talents.

Rachel is an extremely experienced teacher. She always has time to speak with me after teaching my child. Explaining the next steps. Rachel has a friendly, professional, fun style of teaching. She supported my son over a 12 month period. He was successful in gaining a place at Westminster after passing his 8+ examination.

Mr and Mrs Birkenhead

Rachel worked for us for 2 years. She taught all 3 of our children supporting them with any weaknesses that they were having. Rachel was always very approachable and reliable. Our eldest daughter struggled with creative writing, and loved her lessons with Rachel, over a period of a few months she went from strength to strength. Our twin boys enjoyed their lessons, Rachel was incredibly skilled at keeping their attention by constantly changing the activities.
