I am a highly experienced and patient tutor with a proven track record of helping students achieve their aims. I teach EFL from beginner to proficiency and have many years of experience in helping students achieve success in FCE, CAE and IELTS exams, including a year's experience of maternity cover as a Director of Studies. I always offer a free lesson which includes an assessment so that I can devise an individual course of lessons based around the student's individual needs. I am highly qualified, having a degree in English and the Diploma in Teaching of English as a Foreign Language.
Where do you teach?
I normally teach in my own home on the borders of Lancing/Worthing providing a quiet environment, free from distractions. I have a self contained study and am able to teach a 'socially distanced' lesson complete with perspex screens, whiteboard etc, complying with government regulations, if required. I am also able to tutor online and have been doing so during the pandemic.
When are you available?
I am available weekdays during the daytime and evenings.
Do you have a DBS disclosure?
I have a full DBS disclosure.
I have been teaching for almost thirty years and I love it! I am a fully qualified and experienced primary school teacher and EFL teacher and have taught both children and adults in a variety of settings, both in the UK and abroad. Many have flourished and succeeded in achieving their aims with my help. A recent success was helping a student to gain a 7.5 in writing in her IELTS exam, having failed to do so many times previously. I have been responsible for exam preparation classes in a local school for five years. I am also a published writer.
I believe that just because something is difficult it doesn't mean that it is impossible. Individual students have different learning styles and one of the advantages of private tuition is that these needs can be catered for within a sympathetic and supportive learning environment. I am able to tailor my teaching to meet the unique needs of each student and together we can work towards your success. I am patient approachable and enthusiastic and would love to be able to help you.

Rosemary has gone the extra mile to understand my daughter and to work with her in a really responsive way. Rosemary has put a lot of work in to making sure the materials and approach that she uses matches my daughter's abilities and needs, with the result that my daughter's skills are coming on really well and she's making great progress. I really can't recommend Rosemary highly enough! She is a skilled tutor and a lovely person.
Rosemary is the best English teacher I've ever had. Her lessons were very helpful, informative and interesting but at the same time she saw my weak sides and did her best to improve my English skills. I recommend her lessons to everybody who would like to get good results.
Rosemary tutored my daughter for GCSE English Language and Literature. She taught her so much in such a short time and made a tremendous difference to her confidence and exam results. We are grateful to her and would recommend without hesitation.
( Achieved an A in Language and B in Literature)
When I started in January I had got grade 2 in my mocks and found creative writing and understanding what was needed to answer the question really hard. I am someone who doesn't really like school or learning, but I looked forward to my lessons with Mrs Hector as she explained everything in a way that I understood. I have just taken my GCSE's and managed to pass with a grade 4. I would highly recommend Mrs Hector to everyone. She is very kind and understanding and a very good tutor.
I'm so happy that I decided to boost my son's learning and found Rosemary. With just a few extra lessons in the holidays over the last year she has boosted his confidence as well as his comprehension and I've seen a great and real impact in his school reports. He's happy too as he looks forward to his extra lessons. He says they're fun and enjoys the kind considered attention that Rosemary gives him.
Rosemary helped me to achieve a band 7 in my IELTS writing exam, which I was struggling to do. She is excellent at what she does and I have really enjoyed her lessons. Rosemary was brilliant at identifying my weaknesses and helped me to improve. She was always well prepared and provided plenty of encouragement when I was lacking in confidence. I would highly recommend her.
Rosemary has been giving my son extra literacy help for the last couple of years. She is reliable, trustworthy and friendly. She always makes the lesson fun and will focus on topics that interest my son, so the lessons are personal to him. He has gained confidence in his reading, writing and spelling. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rosemary
I am glad that Rosie prepared me for the Proficiency exam. She is very understanding and flexible and immediately picked up on what I needed most and concentrated on that. She is a really gifted teacher and can explain things really well. She always encouraged me and showed me how I could improve. She marked my work quickly and was always well prepared. I enjoyed my lessons a lot.
My son needed some help with Literacy. He was becoming demotivated and losing confidence. Rosie has been giving him lessons for the last couple of months and already we are seeing the benefits. He is achieving his spellings at school, putting himself forward for tasks and challenging himself. Rosie believes in him and he loves his lessons. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rosie. She is professional, knowlegeable and has a positive approach to things.
With Rosemary's help my son managed to achieve a 'C' grade in his recent GCSE exam, having failed first time round. My son is a reluctant learner, but was always happy to attend Rosemary's lessons and certainly benefitted from the extra tuition and confidence Rosemary gave him in his abilities. When exam time came around he was relaxed and confident in obtaining a pass mark. I would have no hesitation recommending Rosemary and it was definitely time well spent for my son.
