ESL, phonics, grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary lessons in Leamington Spa, UK.
Returning to teaching after a career in newspaper and magazine publishing, I've had recent classroom experience and now offer one-to-one tutorials for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils. Lessons aim to support learning, encourage good grasp of grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction, and promote confidence in verbal reasoning and creative writing. Currently, I am offering online tutorials via Zoom, so location is flexible. Ordinarily, I'm based in Sevenoaks and can welcome pupils to my home. For parents' reassurance, I hold fully updated DBS certification.
I am an experienced, qualified teacher and tutor of 20+ years. I am educated to master's level and have expereince teaching and tutoring primary and preparatory school pupils (ages 6 - 13). I can provide home learning support in all primary subjects as well as specialist English tuition. I have had success preparing pupils for SATs and entrance examinations for independent schools, particularly in Cambridge, (United Kingdom), though I am also familiar with Cheltenham schools. I tailor sessions to the individual child's interests and needs, and work with pupils and parents to meet their desired goals, whether these be to build confidence, to develop creativty or to begin entrance exam preparation in earnest. I usually set a short piece of homework at the end of each session and review this with the pupil in the following session.
I am currently working only online via Skype and Zoom to deliver lessons but will also consider other mutually agreeable, secure platforms.
My basic rate is £30 per hour but this may be adjusted up to £35 or down to £25 depending upon the age and number of students, the work involved and any fees charged to me to facilitate tutoring.
