Information About Colin - Isleworth tutor - (10 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Colin:
I am a retired independent school headmaster, who has been teaching/tutoring for over 40 years, in Scotland, England and Australia. I am energetic, warm, friendly, easy to talk with. Teaching is my first love and, even when headmaster of a large independent boys' school in for 17 years, I taught English each day to secondary aged pupils. I have been tutoring privately in London for the last ten years. Previous students have included an A Level Literature candidate, and adults who are learning English as a second language. I also work with university students whose first language is not English, assisting them with correction of assignments and proof-reading of dissertations, essays etc.
I have over 40 years of teaching English in schools, in Scotland and in Australia. My main appointments have been in independent academic schools. I also have many years of one-to-one tutoring experience with school pupils and adults.
I have also lectured in Psychology and Educational Psychology in Teacher Education faculties in universities.
I endeavour to help a new student quickly feel at ease and I work hard to develop confidence. I aim to maximise student participation, particularly for those whose first language is not English. My qualifications in Psychology and Educational Psychology assist me in making professional assessments of a student's needs, and facilitate the establishment of good rapport between myself and the student. I also encourage students to contact me at any time by email if they have a problem with schoolwork etc. which requires immediate help.
