Robert - Great Malvern - ESOL (English)

Methodology

I'm an experienced and qualified teacher of English, Philosophy and related subjects, with a Ph.D. and a PGCE. I have lots of experience of helping students prepare for university admission.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Philosophy A Level and undergraduate level. Critical Thinking AS & A Level. Religious Studies at A Level (most religions and options). Politics A Level. English Literature A Level. Critical Thinking training to prepare for university admissions tests in LNAT, BMAT, and TSA. English as a foreign language, especially preparing for university admission.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Ph.D Philosophy (Lancaster)
BA Hons Religious Studies and Oriental Studies, 2:1, (Cambridge) - also studied English at Cambridge
PGCE Secondary (Religious Education and English)
RSA Cert TEFL (plus recent refresher course in TEFL)

- How much do you charge?

Basic fee is £28 per hour. I charge the same amount for different levels and subjects. Discounts for blocks of lessons paid in advance. Free initial online consultations.

- Where do you teach?

I specialise in web conference tuition, which in practice is not very different from face-to-face. This usually means Skype, though at your option I can also use other systems. I can provide resources for online tuition and will also mark work by e-mail. I can travel for face-to-face tuition in the vicinity of Malvern, Worcs. I work together with my wife Viryanaya Ellis, Who is also well-qualified and experienced and can tutor many of the same subjects and qualifications.

- When are you available?

Flexible times including daytime and some evenings

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Older teenagers and adults.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

A Levels; university entrance tests such as LNAT, BMAT (Critical Thinking component), and TSA; University; IELTS and other EFL qualifications.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use video conferencing usually on Skype, providing written or online resources for prior study. Work marked by email.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

20 years+ as A Level teacher in sixth form colleges and to schools via video conferencing
Experience of teacher of English as a Foreign Language and for academic purposes, both in the UK and Greece. I recently taught English for Academic Purposes at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Experience as A Level examiner in Critical Thinking and Philosophy
Question setter for Critical Thinking questions in Cambridge TSA
University teaching experience in 3 different institutions
Adult evening classes

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

Yes, I have a DBS certificate dated May 2017, which has also been legalised and apostilled (which offers further guarantees by which its authenticity may be checked).

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained as a secondary teacher at St Martins College, Lancaster (PGCE), and also have a qualification in HE teaching from Lancaster University and a TEFL qualification.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My recent students have included adults seeking tuition in IELTS or other EFL qualifications, both UK and international students working on critical thinking skills for admissions tests such as LNAT, BMAT or TSA, and A Level students wanting tuition or support for Religious Studies.

It was great to unpick what seems to be a simple problem and analyse it at a different level. The Skype sessions were challenging but very enjoyable! The tuition was very valuable, extremely easy to access and the additional work you set was plentiful in supply!

Italian student

The lessons were interesting, inspiring and enriching. I started with the idea of preparing the LNAT, and I not only achieved that, but I also improved my thinking and writing skills. I am an Italian student, and there were no problems at all with this. Everything I did not understand was explained to me clearly. Next year I would attend Sixth Form in the United Kingdom and I feel a lot more confident after taking the lessons.

I have been using Robert's services to help me through four of the topics in the London University International BA in philosophy, and hope to make further use of this help in the future. For me, the purpose of a tutorial is that the tutor provides a venue for the student to talk about the development of their ideas, and for the tutor to  listen and provide unflinching criticism if needed, and support where appropriate. I have found these sessions do exactly that, and are very productive....
