Personal Description:
NEW AVAILABILITY FROM JUNE 12TH 2017 ONWARDS
ONE GCSE ENGLISH STUDENT ACHIEVED RESULT IN TOP 1,000 OF STUDENTS ACROSS COUNTRY
A2 AND AS STUDENTS TUTORED SCORED A GRADES


I am a local university English lecturer and professional writer based on the western borders of Coventry, close to Meriden and Birmingham International Airport.

I currently tutor a range of students in GCSE, AS and A2 English Language and Literature (part-time evenings and weekends).

I am familiar with English coursework texts and anthologies and tutor students for both GCSE and IGCSE English Language and Literature.

I have successfully coached students for entrance exams to Warwick, King's High, Bablake, King Henry and Solihull Schools in Coventry and Warwickshire.

I attained my English degree (BA Honours) from Stirling University in Scotland.

In addition to my English degree, I have a second degree in Education (1st class Honours) from Stirling University, which allows me to teach Mathematics, Sociology and Politics.

I can travel locally in the Coventry, Kenilworth, Solihull, Bedworth, Nuneaton, Warwick, Balsall Common, Knowle, Meriden, Corley, Fillongley, Marston Green, Coleshill, Sheldon, and other areas within a 10-mile radius.

.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching English and Creative Writing for 15 years.

I have also run a variety of creative writing and travel writing workshops at Warwick University.

I was one of the 'pilot tutors' on Warwickshire County Council's Tutoring Programme for Children in Care, tutoring teenagers across Warwickshire in literacy.

On December 20th, 2008, I was awarded the accolade 'BEST NEW TUTOR 2008' from Fleet Tutors, an independent tutoring agency based in Fleet, Hampshire.



THIS TEACHER HAS A CURRENT ENHANCED DISCLOSURE CRB.

Tutoring Approach:

My style is engaging and enthusiastic. I have a passion for creative writing.

I tutor in pupils' homes in the evenings and selected weekends, and set weekly written tasks to monitor students' progress.

A normal GCSE lesson lasts one hour, but I can offer 90-minute or two-hour sessions for AS/A2 students.

I also specialise in creative writing workshops, and am a published author, contributing to a number of paid-for UK magazines.
I also tutor online via SKYPE.

I have had excellent recent successes, with 10 students gaining A* in GCSE English, and five students achieving A grades at A level.

In 2016, one of my GCSE students scored an A* and was one of the top-performing 1,000 students in the country.

All of my A2 and AS students scored A grades in 2016.

I have also successfully tutored many students who have been accepted into Solihull School and Bablake School in Coventry.

Personal Description:
I am a qualified teacher, holding a Cambridge University Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). I achieved a grade A pass. I hold a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters degree in the Social Sciences.

I am a retired senior Civil Servant. During my career I obtained extensive experience in delivering effective communications in a wide range of settings, both in the UK and abroad. I am, therefore, also able to offer Business English lessons, so that your work based communications may achieve an excellent standard.

My lessons, if you live in South East London, can be delivered in your own home, or at my home. I am available weekdays and weekends, and in the evening

Teaching Experience:

I have 6 years of English teaching experience, having taught small groups and also on a 1:1 basis. I taught English at the Refugee Council for 18 months, teaching people from many different countries and cultures. For two and a half years I taught small groups of parents at a local Children's Centre. My lessons have been at Absolute Beginner, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels. My Learners have successfully passed the Cambridge University accredited Key English Test (KET).

I have experience of coaching students to take the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examinations, in order to be eligible to apply for a University place. I have considerable experience of supporting postgraduate students with their essays and dissertations, in particular proofreading their work. I have given one-to-one tuition to several business people who wished to develop their business interests in the UK.

Tutoring Approach:

I will undertake a detailed assessment of your English language training needs in order that all lessons will be tailored to meet your specific needs. Lessons will cover the four language skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing. I teach in a friendly and relaxed style, and will encourage you to give me feedback about how you have found each lesson. I will endeavour to incorporate your own particular interests into lesson plans. Should you wish for homework between lessons, this will be provided.

Personal Description:
I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge with over two and a half years' tutoring experience. I hold a BA Hons (Cantab.) degree in Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic studies, an academic field involving a broad range of skills, ranging from literary and historical analysis to linguistic history and translations, with particular emphasis on the learning of languages.

I tutor Latin, which I studied to degree level, and Italian, which is my second language. I also tutor English, up to GCSE level.

Learning anything new is rewarding, fulfilling and life-affirming, and therefore, with the right teacher, captivating and inherently entertaining. I try to bring that ethos to everything I teach.

Teaching Experience:

Working with and assisting children at KS2 level at local primary school, Perry Hall, Wednesfield. Taught Year 5 children basic IT skills. Supervised and assisted children with reading at KS2 level. Assisted with teaching of History lessons and Music lessons. Helped organise outdoor activities.

Personal Description:
Hello, I'm Jonathan, and am currently in my second year of a MEng undergraduate degree in Material Science and Engineering at Imperial College London. I am an approachable and dependable 19 year old with an open mind. Having been assigned a number of positions within my university and school, such as being a prefect and mentor, I have the skills and flexibility to adapt to any situation.
I have also participated in a wider range of activities, both within the STEM subjects and beyond. I was team leader of my school's Engineering Education Scheme project, where we worked with a company to create an 'Ultra Low cost UAV'. I am also an Arkwright Scholar and have completed by Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award through my local Air Cadet squadron. Outside of studies, I play rugby for the university 2nd XV, swim and I also lifeguard the local pool.

I will be available from January 2015 onwards (except on specific dates (contact me for more details))

Teaching Experience:

For two years, I tutored a boy in KS2 Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning every weekend to teach him key ideas in these subjects. Within school, I am a mathematics and physics prefect and so help struggling students and I was also a mentor for a younger student (Year 7), which involved supervising his studying, to improve his work ethic and grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a tailored and refined approach, where the strengths of a student should be stretched and challenged beyond the core syllabus, but to also spend and dedicate more time on the harder areas where students struggle, so that they can get as much exposure to types of questions asked in the exam as possible. A proper understanding of concepts is needed before progress can be made and an alternative way of explaining ideas, from a younger mind, may help some of the ideas sink in more.
Moreover, students learn in different ways, whether it be through colors, diagrams or notes and a tailored experience should be delivered to each student to ensure that they get the teaching that suits and benefits them.

Personal Description:
I am married with a daughter at university and a son at college. I am interested in many different things, from sports to wildlife. I think I am friendly and fun, and because I have tried learning foreign languages myself, am sympathetic towards my students needs!

Teaching Experience:

I have actually taught TEFL for about 10 years (and have been in the TEFL business for much longer, publishing books for TEFL). I have worked in Japan, Egypt and Spain and also taught at the IH Executive School in Piccadilly, London. Since 2009 I have specialised in teaching 1:1, all types of students, from young learners to senior business people.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to find out what the student wants and needs and then to try to give it to them in a logical and effective way. I try to make the lessons varied, interesting and relevant. The aim is always to help the student get closer to achieving their language goals.

Personal Description:
Let me introduce myself. My name is John. I graduated from Sheffield University in the 1970s where I studied French and German. It was while teaching in a lycee in South West France as part of my course that I really developed a love of language and foreign travel. I subsequently went on to Liverpool University where I obtained a postgraduate teaching qualification. My teaching career extended over a number of years in a variety of schools in the public and private sector, including a spell as head of languages. In 2002 I studied to teach English as a foreign language. I was surprised to discover that teaching my native language in all its complexities gave me a valuable insight into teaching other languages, not just my own.

Teaching Experience:

As previously mentioned the majority of my teaching lay in mainstream education, where exam preparation was of great importance. In addition, I have enjoyed teaching adults at evening and day classes. I currently teach English as a foreign language to home-stay visitors, but my main efforts are concentrated on private tuition to school children or adults.

Tutoring Approach:

Language learning can be easy, as long as it is varied and well structured. My basic method involves firstly presenting to the student the required vocabulary and grammatical structures, and then familiarizing him or her with them; this can be achieved through verbal drills, short exercises, word games etc. Once they are reasonably well acquired, they are put into a more practical context, imitating as far as possible real life situations e.g. 'asking directions in the street'.For this I use role play, sometimes involving what is called 'information gap', where the student must find out some practical piece of information solely by using the foreign language involved. Many students come to me because, simply put, they have lost the plot! Either they have experienced poor teaching or, for whatever reason, they have become de-motivated. In this case I would spend additional time practising verb formations etc - it is often grammatical structures which have fallen by the wayside.
My overall approach is friendly, but with high expectations. New tutees receive the first lesson free of charge, so that an assessment can be made as to the teaching required.

Personal Description:
I am of french nationality, i arrived in bristol 7 months ago. I have spent my whole life in france, passed my A level, studied carpentry and passed my exam successfully. I practiced english for 6 years at school, and i am now completely bilingual. I read a lot in english and i am very ineterested in languages in general. Since i arrived in England, i have been working as a waitress in a restaurant ( Poco on stokes croft ), and i would like now to work as a tutor to help children and people learn french the best way possible.

Teaching Experience:

Back in france, i have been helping children doing their lessons, not only in french, but also in all the other subjects. I have never been " teaching", but i am very good in communication and working with children and people.

Tutoring Approach:

I am willing to give my best to help people learning french and helping them in the understanding of the language. The communication and being patient must be my priority.
