Raising the academic attainment of students has been a deep passion and successful achievement - as a founding former headteacher of a school for 4- 16-year-olds (ten years), a teacher, and a tutor. I have recent English teaching experience at a school (and remotely), in addition to marking GCSE English Language and literature papers. Therefore I am at ease in teaching both key stages three and four students. Over a ten-year period, 98% of my tutees have gained entry into the elite Grammar Schools (a few students gaining scholarships each year too). During the last two years, 97% of my English Language tutees have achieved levels 7-9 in GCSE English Language and 96% in GCSE English Literature.
I am well resourced in teaching face to face or online. An initial consultation with parents, the tutee, in addition to a view of the school reports enables me to gather necessary information about each student. Importantly, the tutorials enable me to get first-hand knowledge of each student enabling me to plan my lessons for the individual.
I look forward to working with you to raise the attainment of your child.
I have worked in a small SEN school for the past six years as an English lead, delivering the KS2 - KS4 curriculum to my students. Over the past year, I have progressed within my role and become the Centre Manager within the Senior Leadership Team. Whilst working at my current school, I have become a Designated Safeguarding Lead and Safer Recruitment Trained. I am responsible for writing and reviewing the school's policies, managing the staff team and ensuring the school and teachers comply to government legislation.
I enjoy teaching and am passionate about ensuring the child fully understands the context of the lesson - I am willing to provide homework and extra tasks to support them.
Having worked in a SEN school, I can adapt my teaching style to suit the needs of the child and will always promote a positive wellbeing throughout the lessons.

Many young people are being let down by the mainstream education system, which can often fail to meet their specific needs. School exclusions are on the rise, with 6,685 young people being permanently excluded in 2015/16. Children with special educational needs account for more than 50% of those exclusions. The knock-on effect is damaging – more than half of people with no qualifications are unemployed, despite wanting to work.
Many of the young people who come to us have had problems at school, or can’t or don’t want to attend their local college. We get them on the path to success.
Our personalised Study Programmes and vocational courses provide young people and adults with the skills they need to move in to further education, training or employment. We partner with employers to ensure our students are enthusiastic, work-ready and reliable.

I am an undergraduate student, at University of Exeter, who is currently reading for a degree in Law and Business (LLB).
I am more than happy to arrange/work with other times. Please just drop me a message with any www.*** ;
I am also happy to work with specific subject difficulty areas, such as working on algebra/fractions or essay writing.
I have been helping children to get into prestigious high schools, for example Adam's Grammar, Wolverhampton Girls'High School and Wolverhampton Grammar. I have a lot of experience in essay writing as I was teaching the subject for several years.

I assess pupils and tailor my lessons according to individual needs. I give homework regularly, which I check and give detailed feedback on it.
Depsite my relatively short tutoring experience, I believe that my greatest asset as a tutor is my age; being a student myself, I understand that relatability and informality are key in creating engaging, beneficial and professional sessions. A further benefit of this is that my understanding of the knowledge required to succeed leading up to GCSE exams is still fresh, and I have retained a number of helpful tips, tricks and methods from my time as a GCSE student that I would love to pass on to the next generation of students.
I give my students the freedom to direct the session themselves, focusing only on topics that they lack confidence in, as the relationship is mutual; my students trust me, and so I trust them. My first introductory session is always completely free, allowing both students and their parents to decide on whether or not my tutoring style is for them without the fear of wasting money. It's only natural; you wouldn't buy a car without driving it first.
I hope that my age and short time as a tutor is less an indicator of amateurism and more a sign of energy, enthusiasm and dedication from a student who believes strongly that the path to academic success doesn't have to be a www.*** ;

I began teaching whilst studying for a PhD 25 years' ago. I worked as a classroom teacher in university/college/and sixth-form environments for over 15 years, latterly as a manager, before deciding to work freelance after moving onto my narrowboat. In the last 6 years I have been working as a private tutor with clients aged from 15 to 55, at subject levels ranging from GCSE to post-graduate.
I love working with individuals and enabling them to recognise their potential within subjects they have previously struggled with. I have often found that, as my experience includes working as an examiner at GCSE and A-level, I am able to explain concepts and subject areas in a way that learners grasp easily in relation to passing exam assessment objectives. Learners often find that they can jump grade boundaries easily, once these assessment objectives have been understood, and they suddenly 'get' what the exam question is asking www.***
For me, the key to assessment success is confidence and I therefore work hard to build up a learner's confidence so that they can express their ideas clearly and efficiently within the assessment context they are being examied within.
I work using a number of online platforms (Zoom; Skype; FaceTime etc.) and charge per hour of support provided. This can be in 1-2-1 sessions online, or via email support (for example, feedback on assignments or other work), or a combination of both. I sometimes work with learners for a few sessions on a single assignment or over a period of years across an entire qualification, and have many 'returning learners' who come back to me (sometimes after years) for further support and advice.
I have a First Class degree in English Literature, a Masters in Film History (with Distinction), and nearly 3 decades of classroom experience as a teacher, manager, examiner, and private tutor.
I can support with English Language, English Literature, Media, Film, Photography, Communication Studies and other related subject areas.
I can provide assessment advice, feedback, exam preparation, explanation of key theories and concepts, editing, and proofreading.
I provide a safe and supportive learning environment in which you, or you child, will flourish.
My hourly rate for tutoring is set intentionally low, despite my wealth of experience, as living on a boat is relatively cheap and I wish for ordinary people to be able to access my support.
