Information About Alison - Epping tutor - (6 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Alison:
I have two teenage children and I am looking for more flexible working hours. I have many interests including playing the saxaphone, reading, playing badminton and walking. I am leader of the Children's Church at my local church where I work with a wide variety of ages from 4years old to 12. I enjoy teaching and find working with children very rewarding. I enjoy working one to one as so much can be achieved. I have a sense of humour and a relaxed and friendly approach.
I have been teaching for 31 years in a school and have been tutoring privately for 5 years. I started my career teaching English and Religious Studies. I taught these subjects up to GCSE level. I have also taught English in one to one sessions at school to help those KS3 students who were struggling to catch up with their peers.
I taught my own children to read and would love the opportunity to help other children discover the joy of reading.
I have also been teaching Information Technology to all age groups for 20 years. As Head of Department I led a highly succesful ICT Department. I am very proud of the examination results my students have achieved - both at GCSE level and A level.
Since teaching privately I have taught a wide age range. I have helped reception age children to learn to read and have helped primary age children of all ages to improve and gain confidence in English and Maths. I have prepared students for entrance exams for grammar schools and independent schools. ( age 7 and 11)
I am very patient and hope that I can give my students the confidence to learn independently. I work hard to prepare lessons tailored to the individual. My lessons are varied and fun but pace is maintained and learning achieved.
