Tamara - Orpington - School English

Methodology

I'm very interested in English, Latin, History, Maths and Statistics and I love communicating my knowledge to you!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach English, Latin and Statistics at all levels, and History and Maths up to GCSE.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

After A-Levels in English Literature, History and Maths with Statistics, I went to the University of Manchester. There I did a BA (Hons) degree in English Language and Latin, for which I achieved a II.1, and a first in the dissertation.
I then returned much closer to home to get an MSc (Conversion) in Computer Science from the University of Kent at Canterbury.
Continuing my tour of the UK (!) I obtained an MSc (Two Year) in Social Statistics from the University of Southampton.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £29.00 an hour. Discounts may be available for this depending on your circumstances.

Reduced rates may also be given for lessons longer than one hour, children who have their lessons consecutively, or group lessons.

- Where do you teach?

I teach you in the comfort of your own home. I teach in Green Street Green, where I live, Orpington, Chelsfield, Farnborough (Kent), Bromley, Keston, Knockholt, Dunton Green, Beckenham, central Grove Park, central Sevenoaks, Hither Green and Central London.
I'm willing to travel up to 30 miles away, provided that the place is easily reached by public transport.

- When are you available?

Although I do teach on evenings throughout the week, these slots tend to get very booked up. I also teach during weekdays, and at weekends during the days and evenings.
Term time and school holidays are possible, if they're not already booked up.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I have taught from the age of 7 until adult. I'm as happy to teach adults as children.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare my students for GCSE, A-Levels and degrees.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

For online tutoring, I've a Virgin Media Broadband connection, and a computer with a 20” screen, speakers and a microphone.

I've a Logitech High Definition 1080p webcam, and a Skype account. Using these, I can make video calls.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I was an English as a Foreign Language teacher, mostly for the Centre Laïque du Tourisme Culturel, in spring and summer for 11 years.
I tutored several friends' children in Maths and English for many years; I took on tutoring as my main job in 2010. Since then I've also given one-to-one lessons in History, Latin, University level Statistics, and 11-Plus Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning.

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

I need to update my CRB disclosure certificate.
