Personal Description:
I have a passion for the English language and its literature which is reflected in my work. I really enjoy tutoring, because I know the one-to-one learning situation gives students the attention and focus which they need to improve, and which they cannot get in school. I only work in West Yorkshire, up to 15 miles' drive from my home.

Teaching Experience:

I have 30 years' experience of teaching English to kids of varying backgrounds and abilities (11 to 18 up to A level) so I have built up an extensive bank of resources over the years, which I use to carefully prepare for lessons. I am also an experienced examiner for AQA, which offers valuable insights into exactly how to achieve high GCSE grades . I have been tutoring successfully for five years now, and my knowledge and expertise would be very useful to students aiming at high marks in GCSE and A level exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient, friendly and easy to get on with. I have always tried to make my lessons interesting, relevant and inter-active. I tailor my teaching to the pupil and know that praise and encouragement are the keys to confidence and progress. A good sense of humour is vital,too.
I have helped to improve the grades of many pupils, some of whom have achieved the highest grade at GCSE, and have coached younger ones through entrance exams. One student, whom I tutored for three years, progressed from a poor level 4 in year 8 to GCSE grade B, the minimum requirement for A levels in many good schools, while others have achieved the A* grades required for their chosen paths.
I have achieved high ratings from the parents of students I have tutored. A good tutor can make a difference with focused one-to-one attention, and I am a good, committed tutor.

Personal Description:
I am a confident and enthusiastic individual, with an acute passion for teaching. I am currently working as a teaching assistant in an Outstanding inner-city primary school, and want to take a post-graduate course in primary school teaching, a desire much encouraged by my class teacher and head of school. As an experienced dramatic performer and director, I enjoy effectively using these skills to aid children in their learning, leading to a warm, encouraging and happy learning atmosphere. I rapidly and easily create positive, personal relationships with colleagues and children, and believe education should be a creative and inclusive experience for all.

Teaching Experience:

Dog Kennel Hill Primary School
Teaching Assistant and Special Needs Support
Oct 2008 - Present

During the morning session, I am currently working in a Year One class in this south London school and thriving on aiding the children specifically with their literacy, reading and speaking skills as well as exploring numeracy work.
I lead certain lessons including story time and circle time.
I support key groups of children within the class and am able to use my initiative to plan, deliver and assess their learning in order to encourage progression.
I have vast experience in creating my own resources using ICT, and creating artistic displays to proudly exhibit the children's work.
I have taken courses in Early Literacy Support, encouraging creative and inclusive teaching especially for children with English as an additional language and complex special needs children. I also have training in "Letters and Sounds" Phonics, and "A First Workshop on Autism".
During the afternoon session, I support a child in Year Two with Autism. I plan and prepare all his lessons, working towards targets which I and the class teacher have set for him; these include phonics, counting and social skills. I use music as a reward system for the boy, and his singing has greatly improved his speech quality and communication skills.
I have extensive training in Autistic Spectrum Conditions, undertaken with Southwark, covering various aspects including history, sensory integration and behavioural management.
I work with various children with complex special needs within school, including children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Galactosemia, and have worked closely with speech and language therapists and learning mentors.
I offer one to one support outside of lesson time in the form of music lessons for special needs children; I prepare and provide my own resources and find singing with my students extremely rewarding.
I am in the process of setting up an after-school drama club for Key Stage One students at the school, having directed the infant school Christmas play this and last year.
I have also spent time in Key Stage Two classrooms, focussing on aiding older children with their literacy skills: I particularly enjoyed aiding Year Six students in exploring literary themes and using appropriate critical vocabulary when studying children's literature.

Stage Coach Theatre Arts
Early Years and Drama Teacher
Jan 2009 - Present
I am currently working in the Beckenham Junction branch of Stage Coach: using games and prepared resources, I teach my Early Stages children elementary levels of dance, drama and singing, allowing them to develop their confidence levels both on and off the stage. I have written and directed several productions for the children to perform over the year, showcasing their talents to their proud parents.
Since September I have taken on the role of drama teacher for the elder children aged six to sixteen. Through games, improvisation and text work, my students are encouraged to enjoy and improve their passion and talent for theatre in an open and safe environment.


The Tutors Group
Private Tutor
Sep 2008 - Present
In contrast to my primary school teaching experience, my private tutoring allows me to help young people of an older age and greater intellectual development further their learning.
I teach English Literature and Language, History, Theatre Studies and Classical Studies, from Primary, to GCSE and A-Level, Degree level and beyond.
I aid my students in improving their essay structure, spelling and grammar and discussing key thematic and conceptual elements of their required texts.
I plan and prepare lessons and constantly assess students, ensuring they receive high quality tutorage.

Classroom Teachers
Teaching Assistant
Sep 2008 - Oct 2008
I received thoroughly positive feedback from the schools in which I temporarily taught in the weeks preceding my permanent employment at Dog Kennel Hill; colleagues reported me as reliable, enthusiastic and hard-working, and possessing excellent interaction skills with the children themselves.
I gained vast experience with nursery and reception children, thriving on working with early years.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the teaching of drama and theatre studies is often neglected within schools today, often purely due to lack of resources or funding; my aim is to introduce drama further into the English curriculum, whilst also indulging my passion for teaching literature and language to students. My aspiration is to teach English and Drama to GCSE and A-level students, and I would be delighted to tutor University students also, having recently gained such first-hand experience myself. My teaching experience with younger children has also cemented my love of early years tutorage.

A previous student, John Idowu-Agida, provides the following reference:

"I find her to be a very kind and helpful teacher, always punctual and with a smile on her face. I found that she is very supportive and motivating. She is more than willing to offer her assistance on any sort of English task given to her, helping you in a constructive, precise and proper manner. I greatly feel that you would benefit from having her as a tutor as I have had." (2008)

Personal Description:
I have recently semi-retired back to Oxford after two careers: the first in journalism and the second as a teacher and minor academic, having spent the past four years lecturing in English literature at university level. I am, however, a traditionally trained teacher, having qualified at the University of Oxford 20 years ago with the full secondary PGCE in English, with history as my second subject. I can teach all aspects of English and all periods of literature from GCSE level upwards, but undergraduate students may want to know that my academic specialism is in 19th century literature, and my doctoral research was on Dickens. Alongside my tutoring work, I continue to do examining, coursework moderation and consultancy work for the leading exam board in the subject.

Teaching Experience:

I have 20 years' experience, mainly teaching all three varieties of A level English to the specifications of three different awarding bodies, at various colleges of further education. I also have considerable experience of GCSE English (mainly post-16 retakes, also in the FE context) and have taught within a local authority adult education service, as well as at university. I also have several years' prior experience of seeing one-to-one students privately. I have been an examiner for A level English literature since 2000, a coursework moderator for the same since 2009, and am currently a senior examiner for A level English language and literature.

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor I think I am friendly and approachable, adopting an informal style of session, though I do insist on academic rigour where it is called for, and I have the expertise to back it up. I believe in a collaborative approach, with the full and ongoing involvement of parents, particularly of younger students, and would also expect to liaise by e-mail with the student's English teacher at school. I see the tutor's role as supporting mainstream education, not as something separate from it. I am aways well prepared, and wil go the extra mile by researching material which students have to cover, as well as reading and where appropriate marking students' work, in my own time.

Personal Description:
Having literature forced upon us by the curriculum from an early age isn't perhaps the best way to endear it to us, but I have always found if those who teach it to us truly love and engage with the subject then this passion will be passed onto students.

I have always enjoyed writing and reading, and it was my love of these seemingly simple activities that led me to study English Literature with Journalism and News Media at university. I gained a scholarship and bursary to go to university, and upon graduation I was awarded the university's program prize for achieving the highest mark in three modules. It was always impressed upon me throughout my life that I must gain the highest grades possible, and throughout my education I have done so. Unfortunately, like many graduates, it's the bit that comes after university that has me left a bit stumped.

I would love to pass on some of the knowledge i've gained from my many late nights studying, and instill some of the passion I feel for this subject into those who perhaps need a little push to reach their full potential.

Teaching Experience:

I have experience teaching English abroad - spending a month in Laos working with children of all English speaking levels and abilities. It taught me a lot about how to make learning fun, and provide innovative and different ways to help the kids learn (such as with a sing-a-long or art session). I have also taught basic-to-intermediate level piano lessons to younger children. I am familiar with the current GCSE and A-Level syllabus in English Literature and Language (AQA).

Tutoring Approach:

I will work with you on texts that you are currently studying - teaching you how to do close reading, understanding context, and how to translate this into the framework of an essay. We will work on building confidence in your own writing abilities - looking at grammar, punctuation and spelling, and at how you articulate yourself. We will look at how to compare and contrast two different texts. We will look at different forms of literature, such as plays, novels and poems - and how these affect the reader/audience (us!) We will tackle the best way to structure and write essays; both in terms of coursework and under timed exam conditions. We will look at possible essay questions, and write some ourselves. We will look in depth at the exam board marking criteria and specifications to ensure you understand how you can achieve the best grade possible.

Personal Description:
I graduated from the London School of Economics in 2005 with a Bsc in Government and Politics (2:1). I then worked in the public sector, and later in supported housing, until 2013 when I began a PGCE in Primary Education at Manchester Metropolitan University. During the PGCE I worked in schools in Stockport and Tameside and was graded as Outstanding for my teaching practice. I completed the PGCE in June 2014 and will begin working as a Year 5 teacher at a school in Central Manchester in September.

I cover the whole curriculum with a particular focus on numeracy and literacy.

Teaching Experience:

During the PGCE I worked as a Year 5 teacher at a school in Stockport and as a Year 3 teacher in Tameside, for four months in both instances. I was awarded Outstanding for my teaching practice at the end of the PGCE. I also volunteered as a classroom assistant across key stages one and two prior to starting the PGCE. I will start working as a Year 5 teacher in September and have begun planning for the new National Curriculum which is effective from the new academic year.

Tutoring Approach:

I work with the tutee and parent to identify strengths and areas for improvement. I then develop a programme of study that is specific to the tutee's needs and which draws on the tutee's preferred style of learning. This can involve practical work, use of multimedia and investigations. I use informal assessment within sessions, and formal assessment afterwards, to record progress which can then be fed back to the tutee and parent. This assessment for learning, and assessment of learning, feeds into planning for future sessions and ensures that learning is personalised and relevant.

I strive to ensure that each tutee makes Outstanding progress within each session and I believe that an ongoing dialogue between myself, the tutee and the parent is fundamental to achieving this.
