I am a very experienced secondary school teacher of mainly A Level/ IB/ GCSE /KS3 Geography. My second academic subject is Maths but have also taught English - both of these subjects to GCSE Level.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I am now tutoring on-line via Skype with a web cam at home. If tutoring on-line I can tutor anywhere in the UK or abroad. I am especially interested in tutoring IB Geography world wide. I offer of a free introductory Skype lesson for on-line tutees in order to sort out all the details of their tutoring; times & dates for tutoring; payment; how the tutee wishes to proceed; and to initially meet the new tutee. I have also worked as an on-line tutor for 'Tute'.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I am a GEOGRAPHY teacher at A2/AS/GCSE/KS3 level. I have also taught Higher and Standard Grade Geography in Scotland. In addition I have taught GCSE Humanities and GCSE & A Level Travel & Tourism. I can also offer (and have taught) GCSE MATHS and GCSE ENGLISH. I can also teach these two subjects at Key Stage 3. I could also offer AS Maths, mainly Core Aspects.
Tell me about your qualifications.
Teacher's Certificate (1964 - 1967) (Geography & Maths) - St. John's College , York; B. Ed (Hons.) Leeds University. 1979. Geography & Education; incomplete M. Ed. - Birmingham University (1983 - 1986); AMIEC (1974).
What kind of experience do you have?
I have 40+ years experience as a secondary school teacher. I have taught in England, Scotland (1 year), the Middle East/Arab World (2.5 years) and Caribbean (6 years). I have been a Geography Examiner for the International Baccalaureate for the past 15 years. I currently mark the IB Higher Geography Exam Paper 2. I am also currently, a Geography Examiner for AQA A2 Geography Paper 3 and have been an AQA A2 Examiner of Paper 3 for the past four years ( and Paper 4B until January A2 Exams were abolished in 2013).
How much do you charge?
Depends upon the academic level of the subject - between £26 and £32 per hour. (A2/IB = £32 per hour; AS = £30 per hour; GCSE/ ISEB 13 + SCHOLARSHIP = £28 per hour; & Key Stage 3/ ISEB 13+ = £ 26 per hour). I may also charge a one lesson set-up initial fee only, depending upon how much administration and research is involved for me. I charge 45p per mile over any return car journey exceeding 25 miles from my home. If the return journey is over 35 miles in total, then I will only consider private lessons of 2 hours duration - or alternately lessons on Skype. If a client would like more than one tutee taught per hour's lesson at the same time, then half-price charge will be will be made for each additional student, up to a maximum of 4 tutees at one time. In addition, if a student requests me to mark extra exam questions, outside of tutorial task set by me, then I will request a charge £5 per exam question at A2/AS /IB/GCSE level.
Where do you teach?
I have been tutoring students one-to-one in Maths, English & but mainly Geography privately in the local area (in Milton Keynes, Olney) for the past five years. I visit and teach students one-to-one in their own homes. I am also now tutoring students on line via Skype and I have tutored on-line for Tute in the past.
