Bourne End Tutor

I am an advanced practitioner with over 20 years’ experience teaching English. Currently an English Lead teaching New Spec GCSE. I am an AQA and Edexcel Examiner. Very experienced in new GCSE English Lang & Lit specification. I have worked in Secondary, Sixth Forms, Further Education, private colleges and private tuition. I have previous experience as a Section Head in English for a Sixth Form. I understand the importance of creating stimulating lessons where the learner engages and is motivated. My student success rate is very high and my experience stems many years. I enjoy teaching and the whole learning process. I believe that results can be achieved as I prioritise the learning goals of a tutee. I have an excellent proven track record where student achievement and progression has been met.

Tutoring Experience

I am experienced at teaching children one a one to one basis Common Entrance Exams, 11 plus or just catching up or developing English in a variety of areas. I have also taught children with dyslexia and hold a Certificate in this area. I hold a Specialist Advanced Teaching Diploma in Literacy and have enabled both young and mature adults to gain relevant qualifications in Functional Skills English, GCSE English, Access to Higher Education courses, Creative Writing, CV, Interview Techniques and A Levels. I also have relevant teaching experience in teaching English as a Second Language. I am particularly skilled at exam preparation including mock papers, revision techniques and essay writing. I am experienced at working with most exam boards such as Edexcel, AQA, OCR, EDI, NCFE and City & Guilds.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that learning should be interesting and enjoyed. I feel that a good start to any learning programme is to ascertain the areas for development. This may take place as an assessment which is normally written but can also be carried out verbally. I also take into account the learning styles that best suit the learner be it visual or auditory. A learning Plan can then be constructed which has the objectives of the tutee to their satisfaction. My aim from that point is to enable the tutee to reach their goals, develop confidence with their English and enjoy the success in getting the exam results they desire.
