About the lesson

I have been a private tutor for over 25 years and enjoy helping individual students realise their potential and improve their grades.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach English and French up to A level. I can also offer Latin to GCSE/Common Entrance level. Other areas that I cover include effective writing skills for mature students, essay writing skills, online/Skype tuition, proof-reading and translation.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA Joint Hons in English and French and a PGCE in English main subject/French subsidiary.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 per hour lesson for all levels up to GCSE, £40 for A level. These rates apply to lessons taught at my home. I charge an extra £15 per lesson for travel. On line lessons are charged at £35 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach at home but will very occasionally travel to students' homes within a 10 mile radius from RG7 - primarily in the Wokingham, Reading (South Berkshire), Eversley (North Hampshire) areas
.Please note however, that it is unusual for me to have time to travel to a pupil. Please consider Skype lessons if you have problems getting to me.

- When are you available?

I can teach most times and days of the week but not usually weekends. I try to offer flexibility re times of lessons recognising that these days we all have busy schedules. Most pupils have a 1 hour lesson per week but this can be increased in the run up to exams if required. Fortnightly lessons may be an option and online lessons can be used to supplement face to face teaching.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach mainly GCSE and A level students but can also offer coaching to younger students preparing for Common Entrance/Scholarship exams. I also tutor degree/postgrad students in essay writing. I also offer online tutoring via Skype and proof reading.
I can offer help with preparation of personal statements for university entrance and preparation for UKCAT tests.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for GCSE, A level, CE and Scholarship to major public schools.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I offer an online marking/annotating of practice papers, exam questions and draft essays. I have also used Google chat or phone coaching to assist past students.
I also offer online tutoring via Skype - a good value alternative to face to face tuition.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

One to one tuition has many advantages as it is tailor-made to suit the needs of each individual. I try to focus on each student's strengths and build their confidence so they can improve their results. Tuition can be enjoyable as well as effective.
Take a look at my website to get more details about me and read my blog which offers advice to parents and students about all aspects of tuition/studying.
