Personal Description:

☆NOW ACCEPTING YEAR 4 AND 5 STUDENTS FOR ENGLISH 11+ AND VERBAL REASONING SUMMER SESSIONS AND INTENSIVE 6 WEEK COURSES FOR GCSE AND AS AND A2 ENGLISH AND RELIGIOUS STUDIES☆I am a retired school teacher who now tutors either online or in student's homes. I have a first class honours degree in Religious Studies and English with the university prize from Brunel. I am married with two grown children both of whom I tutored and both went to respective Tiffin schools in Kingston together with their close friends with my son going onto Durham to obtain a first in Master of Maths and going onto a successful career as an actuary and my daughter to Kings College London to do a degree in Philosophy and Classics and is now also teaching. Having gone on to work at Langley Grammar for several years after a spell in comprehensive schools, I also tutored many of the students' siblings enabling them to follow their older brothers and sisters. Working at Langley enabled me to see the outcome of students who had been tutored and those who had not received tuition. I found that a good tutor enabled students to become independent thinkers armed with study skills that would take them through their academic career.
Having a poor tutor can also have the opposite effect and it is imperative that you select a teacher who can offer you years of experience both as tutors and as teachers as it can really make a difference. It is also important that the tutor can establish an excellent rapport both with the pupil and parents as quickly as possible. Some of my students have now graduated from many colleges including Oxford and Cambridge, London School of Economics, Kings College London, Edinburgh, Exeter and Bristol. Many have gone into careers like Medicine, Dentistry, Business, Journalism and law to mention just a few.
I enjoy reading, freelance writing, proofreading, copy editing, exploring different cultures, watching movies and going to the theatre, travelling, yoga, tai chi.

Tutoring Experience:

I started teaching in 1997 and have worked in both primary and secondary schools teaching English and Religious Studies, Citizenship and PSE. I also trained teachers so have an excellent understanding of what makes a brilliant lesson. I have tutored for as many years as I have taught working on a 1-1 basis and also groups. I also have tutored online in the last year or so.
I have taught students for the 11+ and Common Entrance and preparation for private schools. I have taught SEN students and have assessed for difficulties. I have also taught students preparation for Oxbridge and have succeeded in getting 12 students to both Oxford and Cambridge one of whom is now finishing his PhD in Theology at Oxford.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always assess students on my first lesson with them to assess their current level of knowledge related to the topic I am going to teach them. I will also assess what their favoured learning styles are so that I can tailor make their lessons so they can achieve optimum results. I set goals for them to achieve on a regular basis to they are constantly striving to achieve - this will encourage independent scholars capable of achieving the very best that life can offer them.
I prefer not to teach at home as I have two dogs and I do not want students to get distracted in their learning but I am more than happy to come to your house so long as its within 8 miles of Burnham or work with you online where I work through a classroom medium rather than Skype and texting. This medium allows students to see a variety of techniques including whiteboard interaction, powerpoints, media both audio and video, sharing of audio and video encouraging debate and questioning. Thank you.
