University student with background in English providing private tutoring in Belfast

Methodology

I'm a second year undergraduate student studying Social Anthropology. However, I studied English up to A level achieving a solid A grade. My aim is working with students predominately at secondary level (GCSE and A level) but I can teach younger students if required. I normally start with a consultation with the student to see what they need help with and relevant material for each student. I will then tailor the lessons to the students needs, something that will vary with every individual.

I can help with exam technique, revision, how to read comprehensively and understanding the meaning of particular texts. Spelling tests and grammar lessons will be provided if appropriate.

Background

On and off coaching for five years
Teaching basic maths and English to a classroom full of 50 students in rural Kenya.
Coaching younger students with public speaking, consequently leading to a great success in a local competition.
Directing and managing 12 students during an abstract of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Teaching primary school children to swim with mixed abilities.
Taught over 100 students

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £200

Details

I may charge an additional £5-10 if I have to travel a long way or if the student needs a longer session particularly during exam time.
