My name is Justin W., and I provide tuition for GCSE English language and literature, Key Stage 2 SATs preparation, the eleven plus entrance examinations and English as a foreign language (EFL).
I’m a teacher of English at a large – successful - secondary school in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, so I am in-tune with up-to-date curriculum practices, resources and reforms. Importantly, due to my school commitments, my private tuition takes place between the hours of 4 and 9pm, Monday to Friday; weekend and holiday tuition is also available.
I am fortunate to have worked across the spectrum of ages and abilities in education. I have taught through key stages 2, 3 and 4 in local state – and independent – primary, SEN and secondary schools. I also teach many 18+ students to prepare for college, university and business.
Prior to teaching, yet inextricably linked, I was an entertainer for over ten years, and this experience set the foundations for making my lessons relaxed, calm and, importantly, an enjoyable experience.
And why must students ‘enjoy’ the process?
Well, thinking back to my childhood, to this day I still remember all the fun and engaging lessons, yet I’ve cast aside the banal, drab and boring ones. Thus, my approach follows a very simple ethos: fun and engaging lessons rooted in a thorough, interweaved analysis of the curriculum.
My style of teaching is far removed from the ‘traditional’, didactic and teacher-led approach. ‘Barking’ at students and simply giving them the answer is counterproductive, and counterintuitive. I encourage my students to use the structure(s) and hypotheses afforded to them to ‘discover’ the response – and subsequently express that response in an assured, confident and competent way, whether that be vocally or through writing.
And, guided by foresight, that is my aim. I seek to arm each student with the skills, theory and structure prerequisite for the many circumstances of ‘English’: whether that be SPaG for navigating the Year 6 SATs; whether that be critical thinking, essay technique and alternative interpretations expected at GCSE level; or whether that be proof-reading, drafting and editing content for a CV or job application.
The study of English is by no means finite. It’s a continuum. And, with such a difficult and contradictory language such as English, a competent grasp of its working structure is essential for success in formative and summative assessments – and life.
Thank you in advance for considering my services, and please don’t hesitate to get in touch for any and all advice.
National Curriculum based, one to one English and Maths for students of all ages in Newcastle, Gosforth.
Maths and English lessons in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
Whether you are looking for help with maths, English or 11 Plus tuition, you’ve come to the right place.
Why not see us in Newcastle for yourself? Situated in Kingston Park, our Newcastle tuition centre is easily accessible by public transport and provides ample parking if you choose to shop while you wait.
At First Class Learning we provide tailored support based on individual student needs which is delivered on a one-to-one basis within one of our virtual learning centres.
Our programmes, with links to the National Curriculum, often result in improvements across the board and not just in the subject studied. Help is always available for external exams and assessments such as SATs and GCSEs. We will tailor your child's programme around their individual needs and linked to the exam specification they are studying. Students can also bring homework in to the centre from school related to the subject(s) they are studying with us.
Students are welcomed at the centre at any time between the 2 hours stated and the time spent in the centre is flexible. A member of staff will be allocated to sit down with your child on a one-to-one basis to go through the topic scheduled each session and will also encourage your child to do some work independently after they have completed some tasks together.
New learning is introduced alongside what is already familiar, so that students feel safe and can see the progress they have made. Progress is in small achievable steps so that children constantly experience success. Through studying with FCL students develop self-learning skills. This is where they have the right skills set and confidence in themselves to approach something new and attempt it without assistance. Just as importantly, they see an error as a learning opportunity and not a sign of failure.
The service that we offer is very similar to that of home tutoring except, of course, students come to us as opposed to being within their home and because of this we are able to keep the fees lower.
The monthly tuition fee includes attendance at the centre every week and a programme of daily homework (if you would like it) for your child to practise skills between sessions. The homework we provide is a continuation of the work your child completes with us within the Centre. That said, we have many students who don't take homework. It is flexible and we can discuss what's best based on your child's circumstances.
The structured programme we provide produces learning patterns in the brain which ensures skills and facts become lodged in the long-term memory. Your child will develop increased speed, accuracy, concentration and particularly confidence.
If our service sounds of interest to you, please get in touch and schedule a free, no obligation assessment.
The Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes enable children of any age and ability to develop key foundations for learning. Our unique study method focuses on enabling children to work independently, giving them confidence in their abilities. They progress through small steps to gradually develop ability and fluency before moving on to the next topic. Kumon study is not based on school curriculum or age, allowing children the flexibility to revisit and build skills where they need to and progress beyond school level where their ability allows. Unlike traditional tuition, Kumon study fosters students’ skill in self-learning, building confidence and lessening reliance on a teacher.

As a teaching assistant I have worked with children across all primary key stages. As an early year’s nursery nurse, I developed an invaluable understanding of the initial stages of development upon which a child’s abilities are developed; whilst as a teaching assistant I gained a solid understanding of the demands of the National Curriculum and different strategies used in the classroom environment. The impact of my previous and current roles is that I have first-hand experience of the learning and development continuum that each child goes through, from birth through to leaving primary school at year 6.
As a teaching assistant I have worked across all key stages delivering interventions to pupils with SEN/EAL or those who required additional support on either a one to one or group basis. The impact of the interventions I delivered was that all pupils reached their early learning goals or targets. As part of my role I covered lessons and delivered full class teaching, enabling the class teacher to work with target groups. As a result of this, I worked closely with the class teacher to observe progress, deliver joint strategies and plan next steps for students. I worked collaboratively with the teacher to plan and assess stages of learning, as well as continually striving to create a learning environment which is stimulating. I recognise that a stimulating learning environment provides support mechanisms for the children to develop independence in their learning, resulting in students developing themselves further in their learning by feeling safe and valued. A main focus within my role had been planning and teaching with a lower ability SEN group. Due to the diverse needs of the group, I effectively differentiated tasks in order to deliver lessons at each child’s own level, pace and ability to ensure progression was made. My excellent creativity had been acknowledged by senior management and I have utilised this throughout the school maintaining teaching and learning environments around the school to an exceptional standard.
From beginning my teacher training course in September, I believe that behaviour management is an important factor within the classroom. Throughout my experience I consider praise and reward systems to be very effective. By emphasising good behaviour rather than negative behaviour I create a more positive and relaxed atmosphere for learning, as well as strengthening the pupil-teacher relationship and respect required in the classroom. I have demonstrated this by adapting the new behaviour system the school has adopted to match a theme which best suits the needs and interests of the children within my class resulting in a significant improvement being achieved. Furthermore, I have demonstrated my ability to reach children with additional emotional needs when a new pupil joined the class; I identified his social and emotional needs quickly and efficiently before putting effective support in place for the child using the skills I had developed following learning mentor training. The benefit of the support I provided has helped the child to settle into their new surroundings with greater ease and understand that support is there when needed.
I am currently a Year 6 teacher in a primary school. Previously I worked in an SEMH school in year 5. Lots of SEN experience
I have been teaching for 20 years and have an excellent record in achieving results for the pupils in my classroom. I have 6 years experience of leading English departments to record results for the respective schools. After my time as a successful Head of English I was recrutied by my Local Authority to become an English Consultant and support the teaching of English in schools across the Authority (Council).
After completing that role I returned to the classroom and continued to achieve above expected results for pupils in examinations.

Are you looking for a tutor for your child's up and coming SATs? Or are you just looking for a confidence boost for your child? I am a very experienced tutor, with great results, for either of the above. I'm a qualified teacher and I am very enthusiastic, friendly and confident in what I do. I am willing to do whatever it takes to support your child. I have supported children from reception, right the way through to year 11. In recent years I have supported several children in achieving a pass in their end of KS2 tests. I always come prepared with a wealth of work to suit your child, including challenges, working alongside the new national curriculum. Throughout my sessions, I believe every child should be able to ask me any question in confidence, that they may not have the confidence to ask their teacher in front of their class mates. I always try my best to support in any way that I can. I am confident that I will be able to support your child in getting the best results possible. I am available to work hours to suit you and your child. I believe that a student should be comfortable whilst learning.

I have been teaching for the past 18 years. I have worked in primary schools across County Durham and have considerable experience in teaching across all the primary phases. I have lots of experience teaching pupils with autism, adhd, dyslexia, dyscalculia and emotional and behavioural problems. My approach is that learning should be fun, creative but also providing the essential skills all children need to make good progress. I am adept at planning sessions that cover the national curriculum requirements , but at the same time making sure I meet the child where they are in their journey of learning. I have a caring, nurturing approach but set high standards of achievement with all my pupils.
Whilst I currently teach Maths and English in Year 6, I have many years of experience teaching also in Year 2 up to Year 5. I have been teaching the Year 6 curriculum for over 10 years and during this time have taught not only whole classes but also tutored children during 1:1 booster sessions targeting the individual needs of each pupil. Using a range of resources, my aim is to make learning fun and meaningful and at the same time develop a child's desire to learn as well as building self-esteem and confidence.
