Ailene (Tutor in South Shields)
I am currently studying for my Masters in Educational Leadership from Warwick University.
Information about Ailene
I am 32 years old and live in South Shields. When I`m not teaching (or marking!), I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading and running jewellery-making courses for my students.
I understand that every child is unique and will adapt my tutoring style to accommodate. I believe tutoring should be fun and not intimidating. I am also mindful that you are paying a lot of money to ensure that your child receives the best so I will be very clear about what our learning outcomes are and the progress I expect us both to make. This progress will be reviewed regularly against our `flight plan`.
We are currently fully renovating our kitchen and orangery (where I normally tutor), so until at least Christmas I would need to either tutor at your home or a suitable public space of your choosing i.e. library, community centre, etc. If you would prefer that I come to your home on a permanent basis, then this is absolutely fine.
Availability: Weekday Evenings
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I am a qualified English teacher. I currently teach at an `Outstanding` secondary school in Hartlepool. We were very proud to achieve over 80% 5 A -C this year, with over 90% of students making more than 3 levels of progress in English.
I currently teach Years 7-11. I teach a wide variety of abilities, including top-set Year 7s and 11s, mixed-abilty and students with varied SEN. I have experience of teaching across all exam boards, so don`t worry about varied GCSE specifications.
I was privately-educated at Central Newcastle High School in Jesmond so I am fully aware of the Entrance Examinations system.
I have a full CRB which I am happy to provide for your peace of mind.
