It was a long journey, from Sidmouth to Halifax via Singapore, Greece, Spain, Finland, Brunei, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia and Libya. I have worked for the military (5 years), oil and gas industry (13 years), academic institutions (15 years) and other stuff including preparation for English GCSE, UCLES and IELTS exams (the missing years). I spent the last 12 years of my career working as an English lecturer at Tampere University in Finland. Whilst there, we had the time and opportunity to organise the thesis-writing courses online, so by the time Covid arrived and everyone went into the remote 'online teaching' mode, our courses and materials were already established and ongoing. Covid allowed us to tweak the methodology and presentation tools, so that I now have a tried and tested method for teaching academic writing online, which is what I now specialise in. I also offer a proofreading service using a similar approach, which is also very effective.
So, if you have to write an English article or text, or if you want to generally improve your English writing and presentation skills, please get in touch. The first online lesson will be a GTKY session (free) during which we can get to know each other and set some parameters and targets for the course; much better than trying to explain it all in writing. If we find we are mutually compatible, then we'll set up a schedule and get started. I look forward to heaing from you.
I am a French and English tutor based in the UK offering language and literature tutorials for learners of all levels.*
Since studying French with English Literature at The University of Surrey, I have been helping my students learn both French and English via Zoom. I am proud to say that they have been scoring highly in both written and oral tests.
After working for language schools in Rennes such as Institut-Mondia-Langues and Les Petits Bilingues, I have begun teaching group classes of both primary and secondary aged students in addition to one-to-one tutorials. Please note that the maximum number of students per class is 8 only, ensuring that the children benefit from teacher-student interactions.
Throughout the pandemic, I have helped my students to grow in confidence as their levels of French and English improve, engaging with both languages and developing comprehensive written and communication skills.
What I offer:
• First class free of charge to discuss students' learning needs
• Group classes (up to 8 people) and one-to-one sessions
• French and/or English language lessons for primary and secondary school students
• Reading confidence workshops for students in need of additional support
• Spelling, phonics & grammar tutorials
• Confidence-boosting speaking sessions to encourage students to enjoy language learning
• Help with any French/English school homework that is proving indecipherable
• Literature tutorials for students studying British, American and/or French literature
• I also provide proofreading and translating services (French-English)
My tutorials are well prepared, structured, and adapted to your child/ren’s learning style/s. The first Zoom call is an opportunity to discuss their learning objectives; these might be goals such as developing their spoken language skills in French/English, or something more specific such as providing additional support for students with dyslexia.
Whatever your child’s learning needs may be, they will be given a structured learning plan targeting the aspects that they would like to work on (speaking, listening, writing, vocabulary, grammar etc).
In my classes, students benefit from language acquisition as well as learning, which is essentially the process of identifying sounds > associating those sounds with meaning > imitating the sounds to convey meaning.
This process takes practice, so I focus on overcoming obstacles that might inhibit fluency in speech or coherency in writing. For example, many of my students struggle with spoken expression at first due to a lack of confidence. To help with this, I create an interactive learning space where students feel comfortable making mistakes, empowering them to make progress.
Homework and in-class activities are used to target the areas where your child/ren may face difficulties, which we then work through together in class.
*Si vous êtes débutant/e/s, je peux vous expliquer en français :-)
After achieving QTS in 1999, I taught in several primary schools for five years, covering all ages (from Nursery to Year 6) and a wide range of abilities (from working towards level 1 up to level 6), in the full range of core and foundation subjects. However, having a predominantly financial/ numerical background, I decided to focus my teaching on mathematics and commenced teaching mathematics in secondary schools from September 2004, covering a wide range of abilities from below NC level 3 to GCSE Higher level.
From May 2007 to August 2019, I was employed by Kip McGrath (Keighley), tutoring students (during evenings and on Saturdays) in Maths (aged 6 to 18 years, at KS1 level up to GCSE Higher level), English (aged 6 to 11 years, at KS1 &2) and in verbal and non-verbal reasoning, in preparation for 11+ High School Entrance Exams. This involved supporting students in small groups working on individual, predominantly computer-based, learning programmes, to enable them to catch-up or improve their skills in specific areas, whilst working towards their personal targets/ goals, e.g. in KS2 SATs, 11+ Entrance Exams or GCSE exams. This experience inspired me to set up my own private tutoring business, which I have been running since April 2014, providing tuition to individual students in maths (aged 7 – 18+), English (ages 7-13), preparing students (aged 9/12) for local High School Entrance Exams and preparing adult learners for Functional Skills exams in both Literacy and Numeracy.
Having studied many courses covering a wide range of disabilities, including ASD, Dyslexia, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder, I believe I have a good understanding of, and empathy for, students with SEND and SEMH. To this end, I have taught many students with a range of learning difficulties/ barriers to learning and feel that I have made a considerable difference to each student’s enjoyment of mathematics and life-outcomes. I believe that my own enjoyment of learning enables me to encourage and motivate others to successfully engage in the learning process.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, I have delivered many lessons via Skype and Zoom and feel that I have become confident and competent in using these platforms for teaching students remotely and would be happy to continue to do so if required.
I have over forty years' experience of private tuition to students aged 2 to adult. I have taught maths and English to all ages, including preparing students for entrance exams. I also teach science up to KS3. I have worked with those for whom English is not their first language, to help them improve their skills. I also have extensive experience of working with students with various kinds of special educational need such as autism, ADHD, delayed development, etc.
I take pride in creating a programme of work which addresses the needs of each individual and helps them to build their confidence as well as competence.
I work at my own home, the student's home if not too far away or online using Zoom.
I have successfully completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Bradford College (Via University of Bolton), with a degree qualification of second class first honours. I believe I possess the necessary attributes to provide a successful contribution in today’s education www.*** ;
My passion for Teaching has been enriched through my study of the field and work experience. I find working with children intellectually stimulating and relish the variety and challenges faced on a daily basis. Working under pressure motivates me to strive for success and I am able to effectively apply logic and problem-solving ability to complex as well as simple problems in a stimulating environment, whether in a team or using my own www.*** ;
I firmly believe that education helps children to prosper and reach higher levels of attainment, not only do they receive academic knowledge whilst studying but gain important life skills. This can be used outside of the classroom, I believe education is an essential stage of life everyone must go through.
I have gained valuable experience in tutoring, teaching assistant, prep-work and am naturally confident that my skills and personal style are invaluable to successfully completing the PGCE course and subsequently become a successful teacher.
My experiences have enabled me to develop a variety of transferable skills. Studying PGCE Primary has provided me with foundation of basic knowledge and skills; such as researching, with attention to detail and the ability to analyse. I have learnt to be adaptable and flexible to reflect changes in working practice. Furthermore, my voluntary work and tutoring has given me the opportunity to work with a diverse range of children and build my connection with the children i work with therefore i would like to continue my experience in tutoring and provide students with the extra help that they are seeking www.*** ;
Having studied English Literature and Language at Leeds University, I then combined my passion for English with my passion for helping young people and became a school teacher.
During my time as a teacher I have progressed to the point where I now lead a large English faculty in a secondary school. I have over 15 years of teaching both English Literature ans Language and regularly see students under my tutelage achieve excellent results at both GCSE and A Level.
I have developed a range of methods and techniques to ensure students are engaged with their learning - when this happens, any barriers to learning are broken down and rapid progress can take place.

Firstly, we offer a free assessment. An assessment in English and maths takes around one and a half hours to complete. At the end of that time we’ll be in a position to tell you where your son’s / daughter’s strengths and weaknesses lie.
If you decide to enrol, we tutor in 80 minute blocks, during that time students will complete about 6 – 8 activities, some on the computer and some using the written curriculum resources we have.
We design an individual program for each of our students and aim it at their level of understanding to improve them as quickly as they can manage.
We tutor in small groups with a maximum of five in a group. However, we don’t teach them as a group, as each child has different needs and will be at a different stage, so they are all taught one to one and the tutor gives individual support and feedback on their work throughout the session. This promotes independent learning and gives the children time to think through what they are currently working on.
All our sessions are delivered in our dedicated centre, which provides a safe environment without the distractions that can be a drawback to delivering tuition at home.
We charge £31 for an 80 minute session, which is £23. 25 per hour comparatively.
Because we are Ofsted registered we can accept childcare vouchers, or Working Tax Credits can be used against the fees.
We run sessions on Tuesday to Friday at 4:00pm, 5:30pm and 7:00pm and on Sundays at 9:00am, 10:30am and 12 noon.
I would be very pleased to hear from you should you wish to book a free assessment.

Please accept my enthusiastic application. I have read your application and requirements with interest. I have been tutoring for over 5 years and feel like my experience aligns well with the requirement you require. I am certain I would be a valuable addition to your organisation and I will step in and make an immediate contribution to your students’ continued success.
Having over 5 years of tutoring experience, I believe I would fit right into this role. I tutor from early years, to KS1, Ks2 and have started tutoring in 11+ for over a year in Maths and English I absolutely love seeing children excel in their education. Tutoring is an extremely rewarding job that allows me to be a part of building someone's foundation base in education and learning. This role will also give me a chance to gain more skills.
I absolutely love making the lesson fun and try my best to make it enjoyable. As a Tutor I prepare diverse and engaging activities and lesson plans to break down concepts increase student understanding and improve academic performance. I first assess the child in order to understand their strength and weaknesses. I then plan lessons according to what the child needs more help in. I organise and manage each lesson so I can have a record of what the child has done and what needs to be done. I am able to multi-task and meet students learning needs individually or in a group setting, as well as understand each child is unique and will have different learning abilities. I will be patience, have empathy and positive attitude towards each child. Going above and beyond for my student is what I feel is necessary so I know they are learning and are comfortbale to ask for extra help through email or text. I am ready to commit for a full academic year and even more.
Please review my attached CV for additional information. Thank you for your time.
