Personal Description:

I tutor English and maths for EFL (English as a Foreign Language) and 11 Plus (maths, English and cognitive reasoning).
For a career change after many years as an IT consultant, I qualified in TEFL and CELTA to teach EFL; also PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector).
I have a friendly approach to tutoring and like to adapt my style and content to suit the student's needs.
My basic rate is £30 per hour but I can give discounts for advance bookings. I am happy to visit your home but may need to charge extra for travel time.
I enjoy creative writing, reading, listening to music and going to concerts, and yoga.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught EFL and English Language to teenagers in schools and colleges and I taught adults on ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) courses.
Now I just teach privately, one-to-one, on week-days only, at my home in Northwood or the student's home.
As well as adults, I teach 11+ entrance, covering maths, English and verbal and non-verbal reasoning to children aged 7 to 11 years. I have helped several with entrance exams to secondary schools in the area.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to establish a feeling of trust and mutual respect with my students, so that we can work together on their particular goals and ambitions. I suit lessons to the students’ own needs and interests and get the right level of course books and other materials (newspapers, magazine articles etc.) to practice grammar and conversation.
I teach on weekdays in the daytime and early evenings and some Saturday mornings.
I can offer help with general English, Business English, UK Citizenship, study skills, job searches, interviews, presentations, proofreading, CV writing, numeracy, literacy, pronunciation, accent softening, elementary maths and using the internet.
