Hi I'm Jon. I'm here to offer Drama specialist tutoring including Shakespeare, practitioners, theatre from all eras and traditions, exam prep, plays, devising and all other aspects of academic drama learning. I am an experienced teacher and examiner and have trained with Gecko, Splendid, Cube, Big Brum and the National Theatre. I can support with drama homework, revision, essay writing and support parents with home schooling. I am also happy to help with English and American literature and drama. I hope to hear from you soon.
Home education lessons in Cambridge, UK.
I am an enthusiastic and dedicated tutor. I offer stimulating and enjoyable lessons via Skype video call which build upon each student's strengths to enable them to overcome their difficulties with greater confidence. I find tutoring immensely rewarding and strive to help all my students meet their full potential regardless of their ability. I have experience teaching SEN students, particularly those with autism, dyslexia and manual difficulties. To date I have had 100% pass rate and all of my students have achieved grades 9-4 (A*- C). I am a member of the Tutors Association and have acurrent DBS certificate.
I understand fully the advantages and disadvantages of studying from home as I have gained all of my qualifications through distance learning and have recently been awarded my PhD. I have been a judge of the BBC Radio 2 '500 Words' children's short story competition and a volunteer for the National Literacy Trust's "Summer Reading Challenge" for children. I have a research interest in Thomas Hardy and am a director of the Thomas Hardy Association, based at St Andrew's University.
I am a Year 6 teacher in a Primary school and have 3 years experience teaching the new curriculum to pupils aged 9-11.
I am an experienced writer and journalist who re-trained as a primary teacher. I have particular experience teaching KS2, preparing youngsters for KS2 SATs and the transition to secondary education.
I enjoy teaching English in a creative way, which children enjoy and engage with, and have had really positive results with my maths classes.
My style is to integrate philosophical discussion into my lessons, which are child-led - taking children on a learning journey which they themselves direct.
I have a particular interest in advising and helping in home-school environments - this can be in core subjects or cross-curricula, where I plan lessons for one child or a group of learners.
