Personal Description:

A teacher by experience and qualification, I enjoy the challenges when enabling students to realise their full potential. With a specific literacy difficulties postgraduate qualification, my expertise lies in boosting performance rather than testing repeatedly.
Having worked as a mainstream SEN teacher and middle manager, I am accustomed to working with children of all abilities, regardless of their attitude. Helping students pass exams as varied as the CPE (TEFL), NVQ level two and three (vocational), 7+ and 11+ (school entrance exams) and A level (National Curriculum) are likewise tasks with which I am familiar, as evidenced by the level of success my students have had over the years.

Tutoring Experience:

* 20+ years, at all levels and in various settings
* 2.5 years as a mainstream English and history teacher
* 9 months in TEFL, in the UK and elsewhere
* 6 months as a NVQ Assessor (Childcare, LLDS, Youth Work- levels 1 & 2)
* 2.5 years as a SALT teacher and coordinator
* 6 months + as an Entry Level and Humanities lecturer
* 8 years in SEN, mostly at mainstream settings

Tutoring Approach:

a. systematic
b. logical
c. client centred
d. solution oriented
e. flexible

To avoid misunderstandings, I am 'old school' in as much as I see it as my role to identify weaknesses and help a student set about addressing them, systematically. I am not a skivy, I don't play the 'blame game' and I am not an entertainer. This suits most people- and it certainly works- but if a client sees things differently, they are at liberty to go elsewhere.

NB. I offer reduced rates to clients who pay me in advance on a pcm basis. The annual customer rates are: £90 (up to Y5), £95 (Year 6), £100 (KS 3), £110 (GCSE) and £120 (A level or above). Travel expenses are waived if total travel time is less than ninety minutes a visit, and it's capped at £7.50 a visit.
