Jean offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
After thirty five years teaching in schools, I now work from home. I have two grown up children and two grandchildren. My husband and I also have a dog which helps to keep us fit. I always wanted to work with children and am glad to have had the opportunity to do so all these years and am still able to do so today.
I taught in both primary and secondary schools for over thirty years. I was a class teacher in the primary sector teaching all subjects, but being responsible for English. At secondary level I taught up to A-level English. I enjoyed teaching all age ranges and loved particularly enabling children to write well and inspiring students to read more widely.
I am a tutor specialising in English, with over thirty years experience. I teach at home with children in small groups, each receiving individual help tailored to their needs and requirements. I find children enjoy being with other students and I like it too. This enables me to keep the price down. Older children I usually tutor on a one to one basis.
I endeavour to make tuition an enjoyable experience, but at the same time encourage the students to reach their set goals.
Over the past few years I have successfully helped an number of students improve their predicted grades at both GCSE and A level English. I am familiar with the new GCSE English language syllabus and last year prepared students for the exam by helping them to understand the questions and what was required of them and by practising answers. I also aid students in planning answers to questions(particularly at GCSE English and A level literature) as well as helping students who freeze or panic in an exam situation.
