Abigail S

KS3, GCSE English tutor in Sutton Bridge, Lincolnshire, East Midlands

£25.00Academic tutor

*I NOW ONLY HAVE ONE SPACE AVAILABLE: SUNDAY AT 4:15/30. THIS SPACE IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS BETWEEN HEACHAM AND SUTTON BRIDGE (areas coming off of the A149 & A17).* I am 27 and a BA Hons graduate in English Literature and Sociology. I have been doing this job for 4 years now and have a 100% success rate with all students reaching grade C or higher! I believe that this is the highest success rate in the surrounding areas! I thoroughly loved doing my GCSE English course and intend to give my students the same feeling. If we feel passionate about something, we often do so much better at it! I have now tutored over thirty students since starting this position in April 2015. Each have thoroughly enjoyed having me as their tutor. It is extremely rewarding to be helping students achieve their potential. I have done volunteering in schools teaching children with learning difficulties. I am also a black belt in Karate, as well as one in Kickboxing too. Not only that, but I'm a fully-qualified kickboxing coach. So I have had many different kinds of teaching experience so far!

Alastair K

 

£25.00-40.00Academic tutor

I've been teaching at a few different primary schools in Surrey - both state and independent - for 7 years. I'm currently a Year 5 teacher at a primary school in the Guildford area, and as such I have up-to-date knowledge of the Primary National Curriculum. I have a good experience of common misconceptions and potential gaps in understanding, and know how to support children to close gaps ahead of the KS2 SATs. As I’m aware of the pressures placed on children, I’m looking to help them not only with their subject knowledge but their confidence, enabling them to feel successful and consequently be ‘secondary ready’.

Find Your Perfect English Tutor

If you're looking to hire an English tutor, we can help. We provide a list of English tutors for students and parents to contact directly. Using the contact form on our tutors’ profiles, you can contact as many tutors as you like. We don’t charge parents any ongoing commission, and we don’t charge tutors to register. We have tutors that provide English tutoring all over the UK at various different levels, including GCSE and A Level.

Our English tutors can help with all aspects of the Primary, GCSE and A Level syllabus – some even offer English tutoring at university level. Some the topics our English tutors can help with include:

  • Critical reading and comprehension – including identifying and interpreting themes; summarising ideas within a text; evaluating the choice of vocabulary, grammar, structural features; understanding linguistic and literary terminology.
  • Writing – producing clear and coherent text through description, narration, explanation and argument; using language creatively and consistently; citing evidence and references effectively.
  • Spoken language – presenting information and ideas in a coherent way; planning for presentations and speeches; listening and responding to feedback; expressing ideas using standard English.

What Makes a Good English Tutor?

A good English tutor is able to tailor their teaching style to the needs of the student. They will have excellent communication skills and be able to strike a balance between offering encouragement and constructive criticism.

An effective English tutor will also have a broad understanding of the GCSE and A Level English syllabus and be able to demonstrate this during lessons with students.

Good English tutors are organised and plan lessons in advance. Whether reviewing an entire topic area, or supplementing classroom learning, they should demonstrate a structured approach.

How to Choose an English Tutor?

There’s no one-size-fits all approach when it comes to choosing an English tutor. Some students prefer to work with experienced tutors who may also be full-time or retired teachers. Others, may prefer to work with university students who have recent experience of taking GCSE and A Level English Exams.

When Choosing an English tutor, it’s important to consider what type of personality the student will work best with. Academic qualifications are of course important, but so is the ability for the student to feel comfortable in interacting with their English tutor.
