Enthusiastic private tutor ready for new challenges

I am currently a part time Creative Writing and English Literature student. I have recently moved to London from Newcastle, where I was tutoring under 11s in English and Maths, helping them in preparation for exams. I have gained a great deal of knowledge from working with children of all ages and abilities, and I am ready to continue my journey with new challenges and experiences.

I take time to first get to know my student, finding out what level they are currently working at. I then plan lessons with a variety of activities, keeping the student engaged while they learn. After a session or two the lessons become focused on completing goals which we discuss throughout our time together and making sure everything is understood. I also go through exam preparation, as well as working through learning related stress and anxiety. I approach learning from all angles, and I understand that intelligence is about more than just remembering facts.

About Me

I am very passionate about education and take the responsibility very seriously. It is a huge privilege to work with and influence young learners, and I enjoy every minute of my lessons, even the difficult ones. Every child had the ability to achieve their goals, and I love watching a nervous, unsure child become confident over time.

Education

I am currently studying part time towards a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing with The Open University. I study from home so my working hours are very flexible.

Experience / Qualifications

I have been tutoring children aged 5-11 in English and Maths for the past year. All of my students have grown in knowledge and confidence with my help. I also have experience working with children with learning and behavioural disabilities.

Giancarlo
GCSE maths/science tuition and exam mentorship to guarantee A* (8-9 score) across the board
Hello. I am a University of Oxford medicine graduate. I will mentor you to perform as well as possible across the board, with a focus on maths and science. Exam results are more important than ever. The truth is that most teachers will teach in a typical way which is not conducive to actually performing as well as possible in exams across the board. The methods are too time consuming, boring and inefficient. I will teach students to perform as well as possible in GCSE exams as quickly and efficiently as possible, regardless of your ability. I will distil the content down into the most concise, simple format and combine this with exam techniques and revision strategies which ACTUALLY WORK to help you achieve similar results in any subject. The skills I will teach come from my own experience of achieving 14A*s at GCSE and 5A*s at A-level, even in subjects I was not good at. The skills I teach can be applied to any subject and will help you to learn faster and more efficiently. Anyone can achieve this regardless of current academic performance. I will mentor you continuously and meet once weekly to discuss new strategies, address concerns and ensure you perform as well as possible with minimum stress.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...)
