« I worked with Peter Baxter for 5 years at the British International School in Bratislava, Slovakia. He was a primary class teacher and later a special needs/support teacher. I found Pete to be a prepared, insightful and knowledgeable teacher. His understanding of how children learn best was tailored to each individual and their needs. His calm, positive and initiative manner were highly successful in assisting children to make progress. I would highly recommend Pete as an English teacher as he personally enjoys the english language. Its use in expressing and swaying human emotions, perspectives, through poetry, song, text, plays and much more. Pete has the teaching structure, the personal characteristics and enjoyment of language to inspire and motivate students to reach higher goals. Christine Primary Teacher »

Specialist English Teacher based in Totnes experienced in Primary and Secondary Teaching

Methodology

My teaching is based on starting at the point at which my students find themselves and then tailoring the lessons to each student's unique needs. Therefore I ask students to provide as much information as they can on what is required and to set their own goals from my tutoring. This enables me to prepare thoroughly and provide sharply focused lessons to ensure that these are achieved.

Background

I have been teaching in a school setting for the past twenty years. My experience has taken me from KS1 through KS2 to Secondary English teaching. I have worked with a variety of curricula from International Baccalaureate, the English National Curriculum and International Primary Curriculum. I am a successful magazine author and have also published on-line articles. I have an in-depth knowledge of the spelling and grammar requirements of KS2 or for 11 Plus English exams.
