I have 30 years teaching experience. I аm а friendly tutоr with experience оf teаching GCSE, further аnd higher educаtiоn students.
Between 1992 & 2010 I lived and taught in Hong Kong to a variety of students from Chinese medium of instruction (CMI) English medium of instruction (EMI) and international schools to help them develop the four English language skills. Assistance was given to help students progress towards their HKCEE (GCSE equivalent)and 'A' levels, and in later years the IB diploma and IGCSE.
Topics used in the lessons covered many of disciplines in the school curriculum, including, history, geography, economics, biology, English literature and Liberal studies. Further guidance was given to help students prepare for exams, such as, Cambridge's KET and PET, the SAT and IELTS exams and common apps for HE.
Since returning to the UK in 2010, I have continued teaching overseas students via SKYPE. In the past eight years I have been helping students studying in the UK with their 11+ and 13+ school entrance exams; GCSEs and A levels; IB English and Biology; and guiding students writing papers & dissertations for their chosen degrees.
I have a Trinity CertTESOL and a MA in English Language Teaching.
I take a CLIL approach to teaching, which means I teach English using the content and language taken from the student's curriculum. My experience also qualifies me to teach English Literature, History, Biology and Geography to GCSE level.
During the past two years, I have been involved in intervention teaching, which involves identifying learning styles and other factors that inhibit a student's progress, and then devise strategies to engage the student in learning, to identify and then support their current learning needs.
I am committed to providing students with assistance to achieve the grades they need by patiently tutoring each student according to their learning style. I trust that my student-centred approach is effective in this area. My one-to-one tuition produces noticeable improvement in student confidence, attainment and ambition.
