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.
I tutor group of up to 10 in a library if friends would like shared extra tuition in the format of workshops for revision.
Four lessons are the minimum in 4 weeks and then on going through the term is the usual agreement, renewed monthly. Please advise term dates.
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.
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 (equivalent to 4 weeks). Online tuition min 8 lessons.
Planning & Admin may be charged on early cancellation without the minimum 4 hours tuition lessons (This decision is after some tutees have not considered that they are taking the day and time period for long term more dedicated students). This also applies to online tuition (8)
Only taking two lessons will 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
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.
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.
