Information about Claire

Subjects offered: History, English Language and Literature, Sociology, EFL.

I am a fully qualified teacher with a First Class Honours Degree (MA) in Medieval and Modern History. As part of my 4 year MA degree course, I also studied English Language and Literature for the first 2 years. In addition, I am a fully qualified English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teacher and I also have 16 years experience teaching A Level Sociology.

My experience allows me to quickly establish a positive and productive relationship with students enabling me to identify their strengths and weaknesses as well as their preferred learning styles.

My lessons are tailored to each student’s individual needs and are enjoyable and engaging with a focus on delivering content as well as developing key skills such as exam technique and effective revision methods. I regularly ask for feedback both from students and, if relevant, parents in order to ensure that the lessons are delivering what is required.

I am prepared to discuss the price of lessons if students commit to a series of lessons.

Currently I only teach online due to Covid-19.

Experience: I am a teacher and tutor with over 20 years’ experience. I began teaching English as a Foreign Language to students of all ages (from 3 -70) and abilities and spent time working in London, Tokyo and Madrid. In both Japan and Spain, I also worked as a private tutor for both children and adults.

For 15 years I worked as a fully qualified teacher in a secondary school, specialising in History and Sociology with particular focus on teaching GCSE and A Level. I have been a Head of Department for both History and Sociology.

I now work full time as a tutor - both online and in person. As a result of teaching literacy-based subjects, and of my EFL teaching, I also tutor GCSE English Language and Literature in schools on a 1:1 basis.

I have in-depth knowledge of the specifications of a number of different exam boards and have successfully taught a wide variety of topics with regards to History, English and Sociology at KS3, KS4 and KS5.

I was consistently rated as an outstanding whilst working as a teacher and offer the same level of research, planning and delivery as a tutor.

I have taught children aged 11-18 of all abilities and have an excellent record of supporting students in achieving/exceeding their potential.
