Professional, qualified, caring, supportive and dedicated. I go the extra mile to help students achieve their potential. However, Tutorhunt doesn`t appreciate professional teachers and I`ve recently been "trolled" by a parent, disgruntled with her own sad life. I was not supported by Tutorhunt, who thought libelous comments are acceptable. All my qualifications and experience have been wasted.
However, unlike most, I get the results - at least one grade higher in Gcse and A level exams. I also help parents save ca. £100,000 in school fees if they pass the 11 plus! In addition, I have contacts at independent schools and advise parents about them - other tutors don`t do this and I don`t charge for this part of the service!
Availability: Good availability and willing to travel to students, if necessary.

I`m a professional teacher, who has been appropriately trained over one academic year on a post-grad course. So I establish a rapport with the student, setting boundaries and making expectations clear. In other words, I have an unwritten learning contract. I communicate after every lesson with the parents - outside of the lesson time - explaining progress and lesson content of the lesson and plans for the next week. In other words feedback is NOT part of the lesson time! My friendly, enthusiastic and professional nature is why I am popular both with students and parents alike.
I work on a one-to-one basis and in small groups. Apart from teaching, I provide the following support, which students find useful:
A) I teach, using my own laptop computer, I write notes. Every student receives a copy of these lesson notes after each lesson. It builds into a record of the work covered and is a valuable revision aid.
B) I provide appropriate resources, including worksheets, grammar charts, listening files and lots more.
People appreciate my friendly and flexible approach. I love teaching languages and transfer my enthusiasm so the time seems to go quickly, students are inspired and really do learn.
Availability: I can tutor seven days a week, day or evening, subject to availability and travel time.
