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:
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 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.
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.
