I really enjoy tutoring because it enables me to tailor lessons to the needs of my student and therefore to help them reach their goals more quickly.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach English (language, TEFL and literature), German and maths.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BA (hons) in English and German from University College, London and a PGCE from Exeter University. I also have a maths A level (A grade) and a CELTA qualification for teaching English as a foreign language.
- How much do you charge?
I charge an hourly rate of between £25 and £30. I prefer not to travel and if I have to travel for more than about 10 minutes one way I would charge extra at £5/hour.
- Where do you teach?
I prefer to teach at home in Clevedon. I can come to you if you live in or near Clevedon but I may charge extra depending on my travel time.
- When are you available?
I am flexible about days and times. I do not teach over Christmas/ New Year or during July and August. Otherwise I can teach during the holidays by agreement.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach key stage 2 to adult and the levels vary depending on the subject.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I can prepare students for SATs, for GCSEs and A levels, for the Cambridge PET and First Certificate and IELTS.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can teach using skype or face time.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I am friendly and encouraging and very patient. I will help you choose your goals and achieve them. I will make the lessons as effective, relaxed and interesting as I can and I will guide your home study so that you can progress outside of the lessons too if you want to.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for most of the last 30 years. I have worked mainly with small groups or individuals, from primary to adult. Most recently I have been teaching foreign students English 1:1 or 2:1 and I started tutoring, both face to face and online, in 2015.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an up to date DBS certificate.
