Teaching is my third and final career and I love it. I get on extremely well with students of all ages and abilities and enjoy watching their confidence and competence develop quickly. I like helping people achieve their dreams.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
My main subjects are English at all levels (including ESOL and Functional Skills up to level 4), and law from GCSE to Postgraduate Graduate Diploma in Law - formerly Common Professional Examination - and the Legal Practice Course. When teaching ILEC, I use all of my legal training as well as my passion for accuracy in English. I am also very experienced in marking and checking coursework as well as helping students to work out how to structure essays, including controlled assessments that run over several sessions. I am happy to check essays for accuracy and proofreading in most Humanities subjects, up to GCSE.

I can also help students with their personal statements for UCAS and American Ivy League applications, and job applications, so that the application is most likely to succeed.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BA (Hons) in American Studies (Literature) (1977); a Postgrad Diploma in Journalism from City University (1978); CPE (1993); LPC (1994) and Cert Ed (2006). I also have extensive professional and vocational experience in journalism, law and teaching.
What kind of experience do you have?
I taught GCSE and A level English at a sixth form college in Greater London from 1999 until 2012, but my first teaching experience was as a volunteer helping with adult illiteracy, in 1987, so I am happy teaching adults as well as children and teenagers. I teach or have taught students with many different types of disability including deaf students, dyslexic, autistic, ADHD and gifted students, as well as wheelchair bound students with cerebral palsy. The students I am currently tutoring in English range from a gifted 10 year old girl to an 18 year old applying to Ivy League Universities. I am also tutoring students doing the GDL (formerly known as CPE), and LPC, as well as EU law for a second year LLB student.. Last year I helped a 12 year old win the Harrow School English Scholarship.
How much do you charge?
Personal tuition costs £30 per hour for primary school age children, which rises to £35 per hour from year 7 upto and including GCSE. Common Entrance at 11 plus and 13 plus costs £45 per hour. AS and A2 costs £40 per hour. For under- and postgraduate law students I charge £45 per hour. I charge £75 per hour for helping to draft applications for American universities, which includes checking the essay, and doing any extra research necessary to ensure that the application has the best chance of success. If I am travelling to the student's home, I charge £5 for travel time and petrol and I expect a resident's parking voucher or parking costs if applicable.

I always ensure that students understand the content of the lesson before I leave their home, and sometimes this results in lessons being slightly longer. If the lesson goes on for less than 15 minutes extra then I will not charge more. Longer sessions are negotiable depending on length and frequency (and location if I am travelling to the student's home).

All students are welcome to email me in between lessons, for me to check (proofread and comment on) their essays and assignments, and this service is free.
Where do you teach?
I prefer to teach at the student's own home in case of traffic problems, so they are not inconvenienced if I am stuck in a traffic jam, but students are welcome to come to my home if they prefer. I live near Ealing Common tube station. I am willing to travel as far west as Hounslow and as far east as Bayswater, as well as to Harrow, Brent and the Richmond/Barnes/Mortlake/East Sheen area. I have students in Kensington and Chelsea as well as Stanmore and Pinner.

For students living further than a three mile radius from my home, sessions are charged at a minimum of one and a half hours, which can be split between two siblings, plus £5 travel/petrol and parking voucher or money for a meter if necessary.
When are you available?
During term time, I am available to teach every weekday after school, and from 1.00pm onwards for university students and other clients who require lessons earlier during the day, and on Saturdays. For adult students with school age children I also have various times during the week before school finishes.I prefer to see younger children earlier, after they have had a short break after school but before they get too tired! However, I will always do my best to fit in with the parent's requirements. I only teach on Sundays by special arrangement at a higher rate, in the three week period before examinations.

For GCSE students, I am happy whenever possible to meet with the student a day or two before the controlled assessment to help organise structuring and to check their plan. During school holidays I am available from 10 am to 5 pm. I require 48 hours cancellation otherwise the time booked is payable, however, I will always try to accommodate changes within the week where possible. At certain times for example before exams, I am often booked up and unable to move lessons.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
All ages and all levels in English and Law; up to 11+ in maths, science and other primary school subjects. Currently my youngest student is 8, and my oldest student is 63.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for all qualifications in English from basic literacy including alphabet, and Functional Skills entry level one up to AS and A2, in both Language and Literature, and all qualifications in law including GDL, LPC and LSAT. Preparation is also available for all aspects of grammar school entry exams, including verbal and non verbal reasoning, and maths, common entrance exams and interviews.

I teach exam technique at all ages and in all Humanities subjects and I am very experienced in helping job applicants with their cv's and job applications, as well as UCAS personal statements. Over the years I have got to know many people through tutoring and I love networking, so I can often help with finding internships and work experience. Recently I have helped several students to obtain university places at American Ivy League universities, including Brown, Penn, and Chicago
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Online tutoring is available by arrangement but it depends on whether it actually helps the student; generally I find that face to face tutoring is more effective, quicker and cheaper in the long run. As for proofreading essays and coursework, theses, applications and cvs, I am happy for students to email me their work, which I can then comment on before they complete their final draft. For this service I charge £35 per hour.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
The Law Society, IfL (Institute for Learning) UCL
Where and with whom did you train?
I initially trained to teach adult literacy as a volunteer (in 1987) with the Fulham Adult Literacy Volunteer scheme.After completing a career in journalism and then in law, I did my teacher training at the University of Westminster, over two years as I was teaching fulltime at a sixth form college. While teaching at the sixth form college, I had ongoing CPD. In addition I have attended external training at Edexcel and AQA for both GCSE and A level English, and I am familiar with all of the examination boards including OCR, SEG and WJEC. I am also very familiar with IGCSE. I love studying and am very interested in the psychology of learning.
Tell me about some of your current students.
My youngest current student is Lola, who is 7. She is extremely bright and we are working towards her obtaining a scholarship in the eleven plus exams. Savannah is also 7 and has been statemented dyslexic. Her reading has progressed beyond all recognition since we started working together in October. Tom , also 7, was having problems with his handwriting because of the awkward way he held his pen. He is beginning to understand why it is worth holding the pen properly and is very proud of his new, cursive handwriting. Ryo is an 8 year old Japanese boy who goes to the Japanese School, where he hated English! I make the sessions fun and he is quickly beginning to change his attitude towards speaking and reading English. Isaac is nearly ten and working toward 11 plus in January 2015. Arman is one of my eleven plus students. He is dysgraphic. We have been concentrating on comprehension. This year I have several 11 plus students, including children from prep and state primary schools. They are applying to schools as diverse as St James,Hampton, Latymer Upper, Kew House and St Benedicts. Last year all five of my 11plus students obtained places at their first choice of school, including Latymer, St Benedicts, Emmanuel and grammar schools outside London. Marie is 22 and I have been tutoring her on and off since she was seven. She was born with physical disabilities which impaired her comprehension; now she is in her final year of her LLB. I see Alex on an ad hoc basis when she needs extra help with her English. She is a Rumanian student doing a Masters in Criminology. Alice is studying English Literature at A2, and we work on essay structuring as well as wider reading.Lucy and Peter are at the French Lycee. Lucy is finishing GCSE English and Peter is eleven. Roa and I spent ten hours together in November, editing her 70,000 word PhD thesis. Lalie is in her mid thirties, studying the GDL. Frank is 48 and missed out on school. He is now learning how to read. Mabel is 63. It took twenty hours over five weeks to teach her how to read. One of my fantasies is to get all my students into a capsule of the London Eye so they can meet each other. I love them all.
Do you have a personal message for students?
If you are struggling with any of your subjects, it is not your fault. Classrooms are not always the best places to learn things. I believe people can only learn new information when they are relaxed and feel happy, and this the atmosphere I strive to create with all my students no matter how old or young they are.
