Personal Description:

*I am taking on new students from June 12th 2017 as my current clients will have completed their English GCSE exams by this date*

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)
- Homework
- Exam preparation
- Revision skills
- Coursework/Controlled Assessment preparation

Tutoring Experience:

I have 9 years' experience in education: one as a teaching assistant one, one as a PGCE student and seven 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 six years marking the English Language GCSE paper. This year I am marking 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.

Tutoring Approach:

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 library) - 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.
