Information About Paul - Stockport teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Paul:
Teacher of French (all ages, up to Oxbridge, and to adults), and Maths and English/ESL (all ages up to iGCSE and beyond).
BA (Hons) French from University of Birmingham, 1989. (One of my grandmas was French, but I learnt French just like anyone, from school onwards.)
47 years old, married nearly 20 years, with a son in upper sixth, and a daughter going into year 8.
I have been teaching 9 years now, and loving every aspect of it - whether in large schools, smaller specialist schools, private, state, or international; as well as the satisfactions of seeing private tutoring pupils really soar under my coaching.
Before teaching, I worked in international business research for 12 years - which meant I travelled to all sorts of French speaking places, in Europe and in Canada.
Qualified as a Secondary Teacher in 2004, with a PGCE from Manchester Metropolitan University. Since that time I have worked full-time in a large number of schools, including Stockport Grammar School over a period of 3 years.
I trained to teach languages at secondary school level, but I have also had experience teaching and private tutoring to much younger pupils, from Year 1 upwards.
Although my main specialism is French, I have also taught Maths full-time at Secondary schools, and as a private tutor.
I can also tutor English to all ages up to iGCSE.
First session, free trial, to meet, discuss, to check everyone is happy with the teaching plans.
Will teach at your choice of venue, as preferred (and/or online/**Contact Detail Removed**).
Totally focused on the pupil's needs, educational background, level and aspirations.
I will drive the pupil as hard and as enthusiastically as they allow, to get the grade they really need and want.
Plenty of reading, listening, audio-visual practice activities, as well as the crunch of speaking, pronunciation, grammar and writing!
Exam question tips and practice.
I will incorporate as much of the fun things the individual enjoys, whilst pushing on the hard things that they need to understand to progress!
