James (Tutor in Nottingham)
A Masters Degree and Trinity TESOL qualified ESL/IELTS tutor of over 4 years experience in Asia and the UK.
As a dynamic and dedicated tutor of English I`m now looking to work with tutees in maximising their language potential and helping them achieve their language development goals.
I believe that an energetic and mature approach to teaching is vital in fostering a productive learning experience for students.
I specialise in delivering training in all areas of English Language development - including conversation classes, writing, grammar and exam preparation courses (including IELTS, TOEFL, FCE, CAE)
I also offer a professional essay/personal statement checking service.
I have now also been tutoring GCSE and A Level Geography for one year, helping students come to terms with difficult geographical concepts and enhancing their exam techniques and preparedness.
Availability: I am available weekday evenings and weekends. I may be available at some times during weekdays but this will depend on my schedule
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have been teaching a variety of forms of English for over 4 years now, both in England and China. During this time I have not only taught General English to teenagers and adults, but I also have considerable experience in teaching exam preparation classes for IELTS, TOEFL, FCE and CAE.
I have also taught lots of Business English and EAP (English for Academic Purposes). I have experience in teaching classes ranging from one-to-one, up to small and large groups, as well as essay and personal statement checking for a range of students.
These diverse experiences have enabled me to develop a keen awareness for student needs and how to adapt to these and maximise student performance through varied teaching methods.
