Information about Fiona

I am a fully qualified DBS checked teacher with many years teaching experience. I qualified as a teacher at Birmingham University in the 1980s. I have worked extensively as a teacher and a tutor and have a sound knowledge of the National Curriculum and the new Curriculum changes. I am a trained Primary and Secondary teacher and I have many years` experience of preparation for entrance exams and interviews. I was also SENCO at a primary school for ten years.
Outside teaching I enjoy the theatre, reading and spending time with my family. I am interested in educational policy and keep my self up-to-date.
I teach English GCSE and maths Foundation Level and have had a proven success rate.

Availability: Available days, evenings and week- ends

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Literacy
It is vital to perform to a high standard in English Exam. This exam tests the candidates` general comprehension and reading, grammar and spelling. I have had many years` experience of understanding how to prepare for that step.
My success rate is due to incorporating the pupil’s interests and using a range of techniques which prepare the pupils successfully without having the pressure of the exam. Their general English improves incredibly with the regular intervention.

Pupils are given confidence by being taught specific concepts. Pupils are encouraged to use a variety of different methods to consolidate learning from practical activities to computer based programmes. Always in the first instance School National Curriculum work is rigorously covered but then the pupils are encouraged to get higher targets and results

Fiona is tutoring our 15 year old for English GCSE and some maths. She has been very proactive in assisting with obtaining the relevant text books/ revisions aids, she is thorough and has taken the time to assess what subject areas our daughter needs help with including offering to speak to our daughters teachers. Our daughter finds Fiona friendly, helpful and likes her good positive attitude.
