Both my husband and I have enhanced DBS to give peace of mind to parents of students who study at my house.
No time has been spent abroad where checking records might be impossible.
I have been a qualified, and practising teacher since the beginning of 2004 until now, having previously worked in top consultancy firms such as PwC and KPMG. I have taught to A Level History in schools and have been an examiner in it with the main exam boards (notably AQA, EDEXCEL,CIE and OCR) since 2007. I currently work as an ASD Teacher for students with hIgh functioning Autism. Previously, to this, I was HOD in History at top State and Academic schools of North London and Hertfordshire. I am qualified to teach children in both France and Britain - with qualifications from 3 universities: Lancaster, Middlesex and Besancon.
History - A-Level and GCSE examiner for the main Exam Boards, experience of 15 years teaching
English - Teaching as a state school teacher since 2017 and tutoring over the past few years. Generally, tutor to students who are not hitting the grade, resitting or want it for entrance exams.
French - Degree and experience teaching it in schools to 2012
Common Entrance - experience teaching it as a tutor from 2013+
I tailor my teaching to the needs of the individual whether it be for the exam system or school feedback to parents, or both. This is through conversation with the parent in the initial session as well as an introduction to the student. This is not a free service and will include an hourly rate charge. There is a possibility of skype for KS4 and 5 or emailed essay feedback. Ask for details of whatever your areas of needs are. Lessons can be tailored to suit Skype/online.
As stated earlier, I put a lot of research into my tutoring. This means that I am completely aware of the mark schemes, examiner reports, specifications and all materials provided by the students school when helping the students. Some schools demand questions to be answered in their own particular way, so I will be aware of this when helping a student gain maximum marks in their coursework, etc.
Any lessons which take place at student house takes into account distance to travel, which means that non-local tuition, e.g. half an hour to drive to, will incur an hour's tuition rate. Lessons are usually at my house, unless otherwise agreed and financially viable.
