Personal Message
I have had many years' experience teaching in both primary, secondary and special schools, but have recently retired from the class room.I wish to continue my work as a tutor.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I am able to teach French and Maths to GCSE and English to Key Stage 3.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a B. Ed Degree (Manchester University), main subject French, Maths subsidiary.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught for many years as a class teacher in secondary schools and also special schools (for children with moderate learning difficulties and also for children with emotional and behavioural problems). During my last years of teaching I worked as a Supply Teacher. I have therefore gained experience in Primary schools as well as in Secondary establishments.
For the last three years I have been a One to One Tutor at Stockport Academy, where I taught Maths GCSE and also at Hazel Grove High School, where I taught both Maths and English at Key Stage 3 and English at Key Stage 4.
How much do you charge?
I charge £25 per hour for pupils in the Stockport area for GCSE, £25 for Key Stage 3 and below, but I may charge extra for travel expenses, depending on the distance I have to travel. I am prepared to teach a small group, but will add on 10% per child.
Where do you teach?
I am prepared to teach both in my own home, but am willing to travel up to 5 miles, which covers most of Stockport, Poynton, High Lane, Disley and New Mills.
When are you available?
Evenings and day time on most days.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
Age 7 upwards to GCSE, adults also.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
GCSE and 11 plus entry for private schools
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I have SKYPE on my computer
Where and with whom did you train?
City of Manchester College of Higher Education (Mather site)
Tell me about some of your current students.
My last students attended an Academy in Stockport, where I was on a team of One to One Tutors for Maths GCSE. I also did One to One tuition at two other High Schools in Stockport. The funding for the schools to employ tutors has since ended , which is why I am now advertising for private pupils. My students all gained in confidence and improved their grades.
Do you have a personal message for students?
It is my aim to build up the confidence of my students. Some students find it difficult in a class situation to grasp the basics and I know I can help them overcome their problems. Just that bit of extra time and help soon enables them to improve their grades in school and make the difference between a Grade D and a C.
