Private Tutors in Derby and Tutoring in Derby
I am a retired classroom teacher and since retiring have worked nearly every day teaching students of all types, from 5-year old children to degree students. I am fanatical about good pronunciation and grammatical accuracy, seek to entertain and enjoy myself and get on with people easily. I make good use of past exam papers and DVDs using French television recordings and I have a lot of listening materials.

Hello, I am passionate about reading, writing and teaching and learning. I am a naturally calm, friendly and patient person, which helps to create a calm and purposeful atmosphere and make the learner feel comfortable and confident. I like to plan and structure each tutoring session meticulously so no time is wasted and outstanding teacher and learning is achieved. Furthermore, I create interesting, fun and accessible resources which stimulate and challenge all students at every level. My qualifications include a 2:1 degree, with honours, in English Literature, a PGCE in English and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). I have been working in secondary schools teaching years seven to thirteen for more than twelve years (ten years were spent in an outstanding secondary school). I have experience of teaching and marking the new 9-1 GCSEs in English Language and Literature, Media and Mathematics. I have worked with a wide range of ability students and I am considered to be an outstanding teacher. My very first Ofsted lesson was graded 'Outstanding', which I am very proud and therefore always attempt to make all lessons outstanding. To relax, I enjoy reading, football, cricket and spending quality time with my family and our dog, Jess. We enjoy long walks in the countryside and learning about history walking around towns, cities and villages.
