English (Foreign Language)
I am a native of Cornwall, married with one son. After completing a degree in French and Spanish at Liverpool Polytechnic, I then pursued a career in social housing for many years in inner London. After the birth of my son, I decided to relocate back to Cornwall, and to retrain as a teacher, which I did five years ago, obtaining my PGCE/QTS through Cornwall SCITT. I also subsequently took a qualification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
After qualifying, I did supply teaching (modern languages and general cover) in a number of secondary schools in Cornwall for nearly three years. I subsequently taught French and Spanish at a local secondary school on a fixed-term contract. I have recently tutored two students in the months approaching their GCSEs in order to raise their prospective grades from those obtained in their mock exams - this would appear to have been successful judging from their improved grades in class.
My approach to tutoring is first to listen to the tutee's opinion of what type and level of input he or she requires, and to then devise tutoring sessions to fit with that requirement. These may be similar to formal lessons or may be considerably less formal, giving guidance and advice and steering in a particular direction. In short, my approach is to be flexible to the individual's needs.
