Personal Description:

I'm a recently retired English teacher,and have just seen my first cohort of students all pass their 2017 GCSE English examination. I'm delighted that all achieved passing grades, of 4/C or above, and that those seeking marks of 7+/A were successful too. I hope I had something to do with it!
I have many additional interests, for example in music (guitar/singer/songwriter), in fitness work, and was formerly an amateur boxing coach. I also have A-Level Spanish and French, both to grade B, and have taught English in Spain.
On weekdays I am often available to coach in the daytime, and am prepared to travel beyond the South and Mid-Cheshire /North Staffs area in order to coach, although in circumstances where this is impracticable I will consider receiving students at my home.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught English at all levels for 38 years, specialising in A-Level English Literature but covering all ages and abilities from KS3 upwards.
Having taught English in Spain, and therefore having taken my ability in Spanish beyond A-Level, I am also confident in teaching Spanish at all secondary levels, so long as I feel that the student might benefit from my teaching.
I will also offer French to GCSE, if the tutee and family wish me to do so and if I feel that it would be helpful to them.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm enthusiastic about my subject, and am taking up work as a private tutor because I wish to succeed on a one-to-one basis in the same way that my colleagues and I have succeeded collectively.
It's vital, in my opinion, that the tutee trusts the tutor: not simply trusting in the tutor's subject expertise, but having confidence also in the tutor's concern for, and assessment of, the student's progress. Simply put, that means that an enjoyable working relationship is an absolute essential.
With school age students, of course, a parent or guardian must also be present on the premises. Fortunately this requirement provides an opportunity, at the end of the lesson, for the parent/guardian to hear, from the tutor and the student, how the lesson has gone, and what topics have been covered. This is beneficial for everyone.
So my approach is, I hope, sympathetic, informative and thorough. In short, I enjoy teaching.
