These subjects are for all exam boards (including IGCSE)

ESL/ESOL and Functional Skills are available too.

Please message for availability. KS2 for SATs or 11+ tuition is available early evening or Saturdays.

I am a qualified teacher (QTS PGCE Secondary BSc Hons) this means qualified to teach any subject (excepting MFL/Music) to GCSE and my own subjects to Undergraduate level. The fulltime QTS PGCE training includes Junior & Secondary and assisting Dyslexic and Dyscalculia students.

I have Secondary School, Junior School and College teaching experience and have been tutoring for over 10years. I am a Private Self Employed (t/a) Tutor.

Groups

I tutor group of up to 10 in a library if friends would like shared extra tuition in the format of workshops for revision.

Usual Arrangement

Four lessons are the minimum and then on going through the term is the usual agreement, renewed monthly. Please advise term dates.

Single Lessons

Please state when enquiring if you only require a one-off advice lesson. As most tuition is ongoing and booked 4 weeks at a time on the same day & hour weekly (this time is reserved for the student on a weekly basis & ongoing).

The 4 weeks minimum booking is usual for all tuition one to one lessons with all Private Tutors or Tuition organisations. My rates are competitive with all the well known companies, single review lessons are possible but have a premium.

Family Discounts

I offer Family discounts and shared tuition for different age groups available on the same day, e.g. £5 extra may be charged per subject and for each additional tutee, the most usual is 35 mins each Eng and Maths togetherfor primary making a 1hr 10min lesson at £25.

Discounts can be extra time instead of a lower payment. e.g. 2 primary students with 2 subjects for 1hr 45min at the 1hr30min payment of £30

Two subjects at A Level for one student would be £35 for 1 hr 15 mins.

SATs and Catchup/Grade Improvements

For younger students I tutor catch up and improvement Literacy and Numeracy at Key Stage 2 as well as boosting grades from Key Stage 2 and 3, 4 and A Level.

Fees & Terms

Fees are as stated in the specific area of this profile

Ordinary tuition:- The minimum number of hourly lessons is 4 (or equivalent to 4 weeks).

Planning and Admin may be charged on early cancellation without the minimum 4 hours tuition lessons (sadly a decision to add this criteria after some tutees in 2018 have not considered that they are taking the day and time period for long term more dedicated students).

Only taking two lessons will also attract a cancellation fee. Similarly late notification of cessation of monthly continuation (which should be in the 3rd week) will attract a weeks fee while another student books

Any single Lesson non availability fees are waived if lessons rescheduled with 24hr notice for the same week. Moving on a week is by discretion. There are no refunds if the tutor has to advise non availability but rescheduling can be arranged.

Full Cancellation of tuition requires a weeks notice. Group tuition cancellation costs are the hours for one week.

Additional Info

All single lessons for Key stage or GCSE for analysis of tests for example are the ordinary rate plus £15.00.

In revision weeks single lessons must be weekends and £60 for 2 hours to avoid inconveniencing students who require 4 tuition sessions.

A Level tuition assessments on a one-off basis for retake planning are £60.00 for 2 hours. Similarly groups can be taught for £65 per hour for groups of 3 students or a rate to be discussed for a larger number of students.

Cancellation notice for any single lesson with less than 24hrs notice will incur a £10 fee for preparation and/or travel, unless there is an unforseen problem.

Any communication should be by email with a text or phone message as an addition.

It is the responsibility of the Tutee or Tutee`s representative to determine & advise the tutees examination board details.

Fees are by cash (receipted) paypal invoice or bank transfer, an agreement is available

It is the students responsibility to work hard towards & take the examinations, Tutors do all they can to help boost grades, refunds are not made if the examination results are not improved.

Teaching organisations recommend tutors charge 2.5 x the basic teaching salary converted to hours this equals £42.50 per hour, therefore the rate charged (including an hours work before the lesson time, & travel time), represents truly excellent value and is competitive.

I also write resources & make web-blog subject `intranets` for tutees. The resources are provided for the students ongoing reference and study help for their subject and are free to use.

I check all subject specifications & find suitable textbook & online resources. I prepare individualised lesson plans and resources tailored to Students. Preparation and Admin takes another 2-3 hours daily reflected in the rate. Marking is in the form of improvements to work set.

For short bookings, extra preparation time may be charged . Tuition lesson payments are not refundable.

Data Protection update

Information held by the Tutor is the same as the Electoral Roll ie name of the person engaging the tutor and home address plus phone and email. Details are kept only while tutoring takes place and are deleted when tutoring is completed.
.
Records of tutoring contact exchange details are on the online tutor agency website for the individual tutors and the individual enquirer only.

People requesting tutoring can request to see, and be sent information held by requesting the information from Tutorhunt.

Availability: Please contact for availability - most days and evenings depending on the current students.

Basic rates are £20hr Primary and Junior, £25 Secondary and A Level. 2019/2020 £30 for 1hr15mins

There are discounts for 1.30 minute 2 hour and full half day tuition sessions on the 2018/9 and 2019/20 academic year rates.

Group tuition is possible for revision.

Full half days are bookable at £75.00 for just one half day 9am-1.00pm to check there are no gaps in school or college teaching, to help sort notes and to revise. (Representing 25% discount). The half day is also available for ESL. It is possible to book a library room and hold a shared tuition half day for 5+ students - payment to be discussed.

Single lessons (no ongoing weekly lessons) are the hourly rate plus £15 and it is preferable for these to be in the daytime so ongoing student times are not used for single lessons.

Susan has always been easy to talk to and understand my sons needs. She has always arrived a couple of minutes early and has been happy to use her own time to share information at the end of session. I am happy to give positive feedback as it is deserved.

Susan is extremely helpful and has developed a positive relationship with our son. Early days, 3 week in. Her communication is excellent and she links in with school to enable learning. No results from exams yet, and that is the only reason we have not given a 5.
