Tracy - Hurst - Media Studies

Methodology

I am an experienced tutor who has taught a wide range of age groups and levels. I love teaching and have had good results eg I have raised predicted grades from C to A. I make lessons interesting and closely targeted to students needs.

SPECIAL OFFER! First session is £20! After that I charge £25 an hour, I will charge for travel if the journey is over 40 mins from my home. If I have two students the price will be £20 per student, for three it will be £17 each and for four £15 each although I would prefer one to one sessions.

I prefer to come to your house to teach. I will travel in a 10 mile radius of Wokingham, Berkshire including Crowthorne, Bracknell, Earley, Winnersh, Reading, Ascot etc.

- When are you available?

I am available most weekdays and Saturday afternoons, but not on Sunday. I will be unavailable for a week in August.

I teach from KS3 up to A2 level. I prefer to teach children and teenagers but have some experience of teaching adults.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students for GCSEs, A levels, APs. But I will tailor my teaching to whatever qualification you are trying to achieve.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I aim to help you find the best route to whatever grade you want to achieve.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Before becoming a teacher I was a journalist. I then worked at a further education college for eight years, progressing from a sessional tutor to Course Manager on a Media BTEC course. I taught a wide range of subjects during that time including; Media (all levels), Business Studies, English and General Studies.I am now a full time personal tutor and I am also writing a novel and taking a degree in Creative Writing.

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

Not at the moment but I have had in the past (when I worked at the college).

- Where and with whom did you train?

For teaching I initially trained at Bracknell and Wokingham College and then long distance at Greenwich University (Teaching and Training Degree)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My students are studying - KS3 English, GCSE English, A level Business Studies (AS and A2) and also American AP exams. Ages range from 13 to 18 and are both genders. I have found that I have had some success with dyslexic and Asperger's students. There have been marked improvements in all my students' grades and they all tell me they are happy with the lessons!
