20 + years of teaching EFL, academic & general English & Cambridge examiner

Methodology

Teach English as a Foreign Language & English GCSE to native speakers.
Provide tuition for children & adults from all over the world - academic, general, conversational, business English.
Lessons structure around SMART objectives using individualised feedback (tailored to your work), everyday, realistic, fun and student centred resources & interactive media.

Experience

20 years + experience
Taught hundreds of adult & child learners - Cambridge Young Learners, KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE, IELTS, TOEFL, business, conversational, beginners English. English GCSE, ESOL literacy L2

As I know the Cambridge assessment criteria and also the English GCSE and ESOL literacy criteria well, I have moved students from one level to the next, for e.g. B1 (pre int) - B2 (Intermediate) for EFL learners, and GCSE English from Level 3-7 simply by targeting the work and by knowing exactly what is required.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £22/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £135
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £264

Details

Charges are between £27-32 per hour. I usually suggest more than 1 hour sessions (i.e. 1 hr 15 -30 mins). If I have to travel to you I add on some travel time so the longer sessions work out more cost effective for you. I also do interactive sessions online which works well within the C19 situation. These are equally interactive and are usually the same cost as a lot of preparation goes into online sessions also.

The 5 hour and 10 hour discounts above are an example of how a discount applies based on a £30 per hour session. Usually 10% on 5 lessons and 12% on 10 block booking in advance.

Angela's CV

PROFILE

I am a native English, CELTA trained teacher of English as a foreign language with over 20 years’ experience of face to face and online learning. I have a range of experience working with learners from different countries, backgrounds and ages and have worked on a variety of educational projects, all aimed at growing and enabling learners to move to their next step in life.

I teach conversational, general, business & academic English. I have extensive experience of examining for Cambridge’s English Language Suite covering A1 – C2 levels on the CEFR. I also teach GCSE English and Skills for Life Literacy up to level 2.
I have experience of CEFR linking to EFL qualifications alongside many years of teacher training so can transfer this well into my practice.

I also have a PGCE and MA study covering student centred methodology, curriculum design, the impact of technology on English, functional grammar, communicative language teaching, world Englishes and systemic functional linguistics, alongside modules in leadership, change management and school improvement.
