Personal Message
I enjoy working with people of all ages and from all walks of life. My experience is wide-ranging, so please feel free to consult with me whatever your level or needs.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
IELTS: for native speakers (e.g. Australian visa requirements) and non-native speakers (e.g. conditional offers for university entrance); Academic English: dissertation writing/editing, presentation skills, general essay writing skills; Business English: help with English for presentations, conferences, meetings, letters/emails/reports, conversation at business lunches; EFL exam preparation: e.g. Proficiency, CAE, FCE, PET, KET, TOEFL; General English all levels.
Private tutoring for GCSE, Spanish classes for beginner/intermediate students, advanced discussion, everyday conversation classes, translation. Spanish through literature.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I trained as a primary/middle school Geography teacher, but after getting my B.Ed realized that English as a Foreign Language was my real passion, so I retrained as an EFL teacher. After teaching for a number of years overseas,I returned to my studies, taking the DELTA and preparing for British Institute of Linguists translation exams in Spanish.
What kind of experience do you have?
My job is all about helping people communicate effectively and appropriately, in both written and spoken contexts. Currently I tutor university students requiring Academic English and study skills, professionals who wish to maximise their skills when using English for business and/or pleasure, and candidates (of all ages) preparing for official examinations, including GCSE Spanish or English. I work with individuals (native and non-native speakers of English) who wish to develop their confidence in public speaking and presentation, as well as delivering bespoke group workshops when required. I am equally comfortable working one-to-one, with a small group, or in a larger class. I also do on-line classes via SKYPE.
My experience has been extremely varied: 20 years + as an EFL/ESP language teacher/consultant; 15 years+ as a Team Leader/Oral Examiner for the Cambridge examinations (e.g. FCE, CAE, Proficiency); experience with students of all ages (youngest 4 yrs, most mature 85 yrs!) with differing objectives; course planning; development of materials for teaching and examining; translation of film scripts, websites, technical manuals, journal articles, conference papers, etc.
Additional experience includes: proofreading of texts written in English e.g. dissertations, essays, reports. Delivery of a range of workshops e.g. presentation skills, debate and discussion, effective communication, write with confidence.
How much do you charge?
Prices vary between £20 and £30 per hour depending on length/type of class and location. Special rates negotiable for longer classes/courses/larger groups. Travel expenses depending on distance/convenience of parking.
Where do you teach?
I can come to your home, or you can come to mine, whichever is most suitable. I am based between York and Hull. I can travel to anywhere within reason in North or East Yorkshire, including Pocklington, Stamford Bridge, Malton, Driffield.
When are you available?
I have hours available during the week, or at weekends, during the day, or in the evenings. Sorry I cannot be more definite about availability, but my work is irregular - we would need to negotiate a timetable together. During the summer months I have more limited availability due to work commitments.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
All ages, all levels - including advanced and academic English. I have worked with Young Learners, adolescents, university students and academics, working professionals and retired people.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
IELTS, Proficiency, CAE, FCE, TOEFL, or other examinations requiring an English test (e.g. Air Traffic Control exams, University entrance exams).
GCSE Spanish, GCSE English
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
No, but I would be willing to get one.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I have SKYPE and webcam.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am eclectic in my approach and will try to design a course to suit your needs and individual learning style. Unless I feel it is totally inappropriate, I will challenge you with tasks which require creativity and imagination. I believe I am friendly and easy-going and usually establish a good rapport with my students. However, I expect dedication and hard work from you, please!
