Map for Robert (Mr)


Personal Description:

I am a friendly, outgoing married man who has taught for nearly twenty years in Secondary schools and FE colleges across Yorkshire. I try always to encourage student and pupil alike into greater understanding and learning, believing in a student centred approach to learning. I am a fully trained Methodist Local Preacher in the Methodist Church UK [since 2004] and a published poet and author. I particularly love teaching adults who are learning English as a second [or 6th] language and seek to further this experience where possible.

I am totally free now after moving from York to Stokesley at the end of July 2016 and so spaces in the week for new students of any age. I charge one flat rate and can travel 10 miles from Stokesley. Anything further will increase the charge to £25 an hour due to rising fuel costs. Please take this into account when choosing my services. I choose not to tutor at weekends.

Tutoring Experience:

My teaching experience covers all ages and abilities from Year 7 to mature students from other countries who wanted to learn the English language. I have taught through Key Stage three, four [GCSE] and at A Level at both language and literature. I am semi retired and can offer a variety of hours to suit your needs although I do teach part time for a college to GCSE levels in the AQA 4700 English syllabus. In recent years, I have taught the AQA 4705 syllabus and the 9715 Lit one too.

I have tutored a severely dyslexic student to a successful 2:2 degree in Theology and Religious Studies, have personal experience of Mears Earhlamm Syndrome and Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ADHD when teaching. Anything can be overcome through my tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

Mature, calm and friendly approach, believing in the student being at the centre of their learning experience. Resources are available to aid in this process. Exam results have been most rewarding in the past and will be in the future. Most recently tutored an A level student in three months to complete her studies and get a place at Lincoln University. Happy bunny that day!
