of Excellence for Tutoring in English, Maths and Computer
I have been teaching students in the Guildford area for over
27 years, where
I am well known, have an excellent reputation and hence a
waiting list on a regular basis.
Education Plus has been successful
through understanding the needs of the individual. For this
reason each child is given an assessment prior to starting at
the Centre. From this assessment a carefully structured
individual programme is constructed. The aim then is to give
students the skills and motivation to succeed. This is
achieved by tailoring their work to the ability and pace of
each child. As the child progresses the speed and difficulty
of the work can be accelerated, providing a constant challenge
and motivation for the student to improve.
Each session lasts for 1 hour
and is broken down in to small compartments, providing the
child with a constant change of activity and thereby
maximising concentration levels. The work is varied and makes
- computer programmes
- reading tasks
- writing tasks
Homework is given as an
integral part of the programmes.
The methods I use make use
fundamental teaching concepts and take advantage of modern
technology. Using the basic concepts all children can
learn. Children progress quickly and enjoy coming to the
centre, as they feel it is a place that they can achieve,
which is sometimes denied to them in schools.
All work is marked as they
do it, providing the child and me with constant
feedback and gives me an opportunity for
rewarding effort and success, either verbally, or through
the use of stickers, certificates and prizes.
I also provide extension work for the more able
students. In the Guildford area there are a number of very
concerned parents of able students who wish extra help to
enable their children to fulfill their potential. In some
cases it might be preparation for common entrance and
scholarship examinations, or specialist GCSE teaching.
I have been teaching for
over 30 years and for twenty seven of these in Guildford.
I have built a reputation as an excellent teacher and I
soon found myself as Head of Year at George Abbot School
where I had responsibility for the academic and pastoral
development of over 300 students. In this position I
constantly found myself struggling to satisfy the demands
of parents who sought better help for the individual needs
of their child, who was either not coping, or not being
stretched. As a result I saw children becoming disaffected
with school. Now I am able to help the very parents I
always felt I was unable to help with any degree of
I find it hard to believe, but
I am now in my 15th year of specialist tutoring - where has
the time gone?
