GCSE English Language and Literature / A Level Literature

I specialise in tutoring adults and students English language and literature at GCSE and GCE level. My goal is to build students' confidence in reading a range of texts and writing with variety of audiences in mind. I ensure i use challenging, topical texts that are guaranteed to engage the learner and have fun doing so. I can set further academic, pre exam prep ( PEP) tasks linked to the session that build on prior learning ( aka homework). I use National curriculum and exam board marking schemes and levels in line with your school / college.

These sessions are best delivered in a sequence based on certain aspects of any given exam paper. The focus is to learn how to confidently navigate each section and question per paper. You will learn to skilfully apply the appropriate knowledge and skills per question in a forensic approach to completing each question to a high standard. You may want to get a grade 9 or you may want to get a grade 5- no matter what your ambitions, I will support you to achieve your best before sitting the exams.

Extra information

You will need copies of the exam paper and a work book / laptop to take notes in. Good idea to have some post its too.

About Me

I have been teaching for 30+ years and I am am English examiner also. I have tutored adults, GCSE and GCE students who have struggled to gain the best grades either through lack of confidence or disrupted learning. I am firm but fair. I have a very good sense of humour but I also like to establish the 'boundaries' of our work so that we both know what is expected. I will work hard for you but expect the same from you! coming to the session prepared to learn and on time are two of the basic requirements for success.

I have worked in schools, in Local authorities and UK wide working for the DFE. What this means for you is that I am up-to-date and ready to go! There really is no gain without some pain. I am here to minimalise the 'pain' and expertly guide you to aim for the best you can be. English is at the core of any job and important for general life skills. Working together, you are more likely to succeed.

Almasa
English language classes for students, kids and adults
Hi, my name is Almasa. I hold BA of English language and literature, besides that, I hold TEFL-TESOL certificate for 120 teaching hours from European Center for Education. I worked as an English teacher for three years, and during that period of time I worked with diverse students, starting from kids to adults. Therefore I can teach any age. Right now I work at Bahcesehir Koleji in Istanbul. I believe that the key to good teaching is to make any topic or material comprehensive, dividing it into smaller units.

Kevin
Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.

Brigitte
Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private
I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.
