Personal Description:

I am a qualified and experienced teacher based in Tewkesbury. I am a home tutor for school children and foreign students studying English with 15 years experience. I can help with schoolwork, confidence building, exam skills and study strategies. I am also experienced in tutoring for 11 plus and school entrance exams, and recently taught students that have successfully gained entrance in to local Grammar schools.

I have taught English as a foreign language at Cheltenham Ladies College, Dean Close, Inlingua and Gloscol. I've also worked for The University of Gloucestershire and UWE.
I can help students improve their language ability for work, exams or general day to day English. I have taught all sorts of different nationalities from beginner to advanced and enjoy teaching any level.

Tutoring Experience:

I currently home tutor children at KS2/KS3/GCSE /11+ and Verbal and non verbal reasoning for school entrance exams. I have done this professionally and successfully for the last few years.
I've found my tutees confidence improve dramatically within weeks and as a result their grades and ultimately exam success have rocketed.
All of my students have improved at school and have been moved into higher classes as a result.
I have also taught English in Italy, Spain and Japan. I have experience with children and teenagers both at summer school in England and abroad. I can teach English for special purposes, Exam preparation classes and Business English.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to create lessons that are suited to the student and work closely with the student/parent and school, where possible, to make the lessons relevant and interesting. Once I have done an initial free evaluation with my tutee and parent I make a unique study plan that guides us through our studies. I can adapt that where necessary, but generally find student respond really well to my approach. I can make scary topics like grammar and algebra seem less daunting and easier to understand.
I am creative in making the lessons fun and engaging by focusing on subjects and topics that the student is interested in. I look at areas where the student could use some extra attention such as vocabulary or grammar and will then focus on that in the next lesson until I feel the student is ready to move on.

As well as fixing gaps in knowledge I try to work ahead of schoolwork in order to give the student knowledge and confidence in class.

I can tailor the lessons to suit any level, age or nationality effectively. I make lessons relevant to the student, by avoiding language that is already known and focusing on an area that is useful students find they can progress quickly in my lessons.

I specialise in Exam preparation, If you need help with GCSE/11+ or PET/FCE/IELTS then I can tailor make lessons to diagnose weak areas and strengthen them, practice Exam skills and make you or your child feel confident in taking the Exam.
