I use Skype for online tutoring. It is helpful to have headphones and a webcam.
Where and with whom did you train?
I originally trained with the Bell School in Norwich, and have since completed many hours of professional development training with Worcester Sixth Form College.
Tell me about some of your current students.
I have just finished teaching a student English Language A level who was unable to complete her college course and needed some extra support. We met for an hour a week and she felt confident and ready for the exam by the time it arrived. I am currently teaching a student in Brazil via Skype who needs English speaking practice and preparation for the Cambridge Advanced English exam.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I always tailor my teaching to your precise requirements - we start with a discussion of what you need, and the classes develop as your needs change.
