Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I'm Chris, a Secondary English teacher based in Liverpool with experience of one-to-one tutoring. My main area of expertise is in English at KS3, GCSE and A-Level. I can help in the following areas:
- Basic literacy skills (reading and writing)
- Exam preparation
- Revision skills
- Coursework/Controlled Assessment preparation
I have ten years' experience in education: one as a teaching assistant, one as a PGCE student and eight as a teacher. I have worked in both mixed and all-boys secondary schools in the Liverpool area and currently work in a very academic, highly regarded school teaching the AQA specifications at A Level (Literature, spec A) and GCSE. I have tutored both boys and girls of varied ages and abilities during this time.
I have been an examiner for AQA for seven years marking the English Language GCSE paper. Recently, I marked the new English Language paper 2 exam so can offer expert advice on this part of the course.
Please note, I do not teach English Language at A Level.
I offer a personalised approach to tutoring that is tailored to an individual's needs to ensure that they are suitably challenged and make progress. I feel that it is important to develop a positive rapport between teacher and student, so that they feel confident and encouraged to learn. I would consider myself to be patient, friendly, and adaptable.
I am happy to meet in person, either at your home or at an agreed upon venue (such as a public **Contact Detail Removed**) - whichever is convenient for you.
My hourly rate includes expenses for travel and all resources. I will also mark any written work/homework I set your child after each session and free of charge.
Travel beyond 5 miles will incur an extra charge for time travelling and fuel costs (£5).
Please include details about your child's studies (texts studying, current topic in English at school, exam board, specific areas of weakness/development) as this will enable me to assess whether I am suitable or not to meet his or her needs much more quickly than via several emails.
