Map for Tim (Mr)


Personal Description:

I'm a career English teacher who retired in April 2016, although I will be returning to my school in order to teach occasionally, since my school has invited me to do so.
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 I of course require the presence of a parent or guardian, but this requirement also provides an opportunity for the parent or guardian to become acquainted with the course, which is definitely advantageous.
In short, I enjoy teaching.
