Personal Description:

Personal Description:
I trained as a classical actor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, in London during 1971-74. But then I gained a real interest in English teaching. Over the coming years, I qualified as a English/Drama teacher through the City of London University in 1977, gaining a Cert.Ed (distinction). I worked very successfully as a teacher, rising to Head of Drama and Deputy Head of English. Over those enjoyable years I mounted many excellent productions. I worked very hard, enthusiastically steering my students to gain excellent exam results in English and Drama, across the ability range. I also teach History up to A’ level.
Furthermore, supply teaching has given me much experience with junior school children. I really enjoy teaching at this level. My lessons are designed to be enjoyable as this, I feel, is the best way to get results. I have a natural ability to enthuse my students. I have always endeavoured to keep up with modern trends and methods and this has helped me enrich my teaching skills. I have also marked higher tier English for AQA. This has given me a very sound working knowledge of grading levels and also deepened my understanding of exam curriculum requirements for English Literature. All this has helped me to be very successful in the classroom and as a tutor. Over the years, I have been very encouraged by my students progress, at all levels of ability. I am very keen on teaching and really enjoy the work. I am married with three grown up boys who have families of their own. I am very proud to say that our youngest son, Richard, is a graduate from Oxford.

Tutoring Experience:

Teaching Experience:
In the eighties I began working as a one-to-one English tutor, teaching students in the comfort of their homes. I have over twenty years experience in this field. I also have vast experience in teaching English S.A.TS and G.C.S.E English Literature and Language, across the ability range. I am very popular with my students. This, I think, is due to the fact that I endeavour to make my lessons fun and interesting. Try a lesson with me and you will see!
I hope after reading the above you will take me on as your tutor. My rates are very reasonable and the first lesson is half price! I welcome any further enquires from prospective students.

Tutoring Approach:

Tutoring approach:
A few days before the first lesson I would email the new student a test paper to assess her/his level in the chosen subject level. This enables me to assess the student's current ability prior to the first lesson. Following this lead, the first session will enable me to further develop my knowledge of the student's ability, ironing out any misconceptions that need addressing. This will then help us to prepare "A Personal Lesson Plan." I think it is important for students to become very involved in their learning process, hence I like to agree targets which we will work towards. As part of this process, I always give a verbal report to parents at the end of each lesson and set regular tests, the results helping to guide future lessons. Regards, Ken .
