I am a dual national, American and British. I have lived in England for 30 years and have a thorough understanding of both educational systems - and both languages!
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I have tutored using email and Skype.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
English at all levels up to and including University, History at all levels also. Spanish up to GCSE level.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BA, two MA's, a PhD and a PGCE.
What kind of experience do you have?
i taught full time from 1968 to 2001. From 2001 I tutored and worked part time for the NHS. I have taught both in the US and in the UK, at all levels from junior school to university level.
How much do you charge?
I ask for £15 for the first lesson, to make sure the student and I are a "fit." I usually charge the full fee +£15 if there are two children being tutored at the same time.
Where do you teach?
I travel to students' homes, or if easier, students can come to me. But I have a (very friendly) dog and some children do not like animals. I travel fairly widely in London, although I only drive far from North London during off-peak hours.
When are you available?
I am available any day of the week, by negotiation with the family. I can and do work during summers and school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I will teach any age from 10 upwards, almost most of my experience is from ages 12-80!
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I can prepare my students for English state exams or American exams, secondary and university level.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes I have an up-to-date DBS.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I belong to the Philological Society (Linguistics), the Institute of Education Post 14-18, and the Professional Tutor's Association.
