Information About Jenny - Clapham tutor - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Jenny:
I am a qualified English teacher currently teaching secondary and sixth form English Literature and Language at a school in Highbury and Islington. I am an English specialist with a degree in my subject; additionally to this, I am qualified to teach English as a second language. This year, I am teaching foundation level GCSE English, Key Stage 3 English, IB literature (SL) and IB literature and language (SL) as well as A2 level literature. I have covered a range of texts and poetry with my classes and would be willing to engage with new material if necessary.
My teaching career started in 2011 when I completed a TESOL course with Trinity College London after graduating. From this I secured a teaching contract in Beijing China where I worked teaching English for six months. Furthermore, I taught English as an additional language for three summers at a boarding school in Chichester for a company called CLAC. During my summers there I taught 12-15 year olds English, where we would learn grammar, pronunciation and the use of more functional and authentic English.
I completed my PGCE and came to London to pursue a full time teaching career, and am nearing the end of a successful NQT year and plan to remain at the school where I am currently working. I am keen to invest time in tutoring to offer my professional guidance and also to develop my skills as a practitioner.
My approach to tutoring is flexible yet focused. The one to one experience of teaching and learning offers the opportunity to measure progress and cater to specific needs when necessary to ensure that progress is made.
Although I am keen to offer my professional guidance, I am not a tutor who will do homework for my students and will expect those who I work with to complete the tasks I set to the level which I believe they are capable of.
