English Language Tutor Oswestry

Having been teaching in different capacities since 1980 I am an experienced tutor in English to GCSE level. My students develop confidence quickly. I have an honest no-nonsense approach in my methods which are modified to suit the very individual needs of each student. I have been an AQA examiner in the English language component at GCSE level for over ten years. During lockdown, the demand for online tuition accelerated and I have found it to be an excellent means of communication with my students. I provide written reviews on a regular basis to parents. I worked at a local secondary school for ten years. During that time I was utilised as a teaching Assistant in the SEN department and as a teacher in the English department. I am currently successfully teaching a deaf student online utilising tried and tested methods to ensure steady progress. I hold a current enhanced DBS having been fully checked and authorised to teach children and adults of all ages.

English Language Tutor Online

I have 24 years teaching experience; most of my work has been in secondary, where my specialisms are Drama, English Language and English Literature. I also have extensive experience in primary education and SEN. My distinguishing characteristics are inventiveness and using creative strategies to engage students who have either become alienated by standardised approaches to education or seek perception-challenging provocations to take their critical thinking and articulacy to the highest possible level. I have created many bespoke home-schooling and curriculum enrichment programs. I am also a creative professional, still working in the creative arts, primarily as a dramaturg and director. This creativity extends to my tutoring style which encapsulates a sensitive awareness of what a student needs and a capacity to foster inspiring intellectual rapports.

When I am tutoring a student for an exam, I spend time demonstrating effective revision strategies so that my tutee is equipped with the skills they need to support themselves in preparation for their exams.

Reviews for English Language Tutors in Oswestry

Elen has taken on the role of instructing my sons in English for several months now. Her teaching methods are thorough and systematic, ensuring that every lesson is well-structured and effective. She provides tailored material to address each of the kids gaps. She has a way of engaging with my children that keeps them interested and motivated. As a result of her efforts, I've observed a notable enhancement in my sons' creative writing abilities. They are now more expressive and confident in their writing. Given the progress I've seen, I wouldn't hesitate to suggest her to other parents within my circle, as I believe she can bring out the best in any student. Rachel

Louise tutored my son and daughter while they were in Year 11. She is brilliant at motivating them, making them feel confident and able to tackle the exams. Without her help, my children wouldn't have met the grade 4 standard. Mrs Stene

Chris has been a saviour for my son Alfie. He has been coming over the summer break for a few weeks of intensive two-hour slots to help Alfie catch up on all that he didnt learn in Year 10. Alfie has ADHD and has struggled at school to engage with the GCSE course, but Chris has reversed this. Alfie has been amazed at how much he has learned and enjoyed with Chris. We would 100% recommend him and will be continuing weekly sessions throughout Year 11. Meg Black

Chris stands out as being amongst the most creative, organised, thoughtful and inspirational of teachers. His love of and expertise in his topic (English Literature and Language GCSE for us) shines through, and he is beyond professional. He makes the subjects sing. (He also works well as part of a team) . Anne Todd

Catherine has been tutoring our son, who is aged 17. She has been professional throughout, encouraging independent thinking, learning and self-motivation. She has excellent communication skills and is very reliable and approachable. Kate Bland

I am a qualified and experienced teacher of English, History, French, Latin, Classical Civilisation & Functional Skills, and also offer preparation for SATs, and 11+/13+ Common Entrance exams, including Latin where relevant. I have taught Adult Functional Skills for many years, alongside IGCSE English, GCSE English, History and French, and have also worked with dyslexic pupils (my own children are dyslexic too). Students benefit from my teaching, feeling relaxed and confident with each subject, ensuring success. AQA, OCR, Eduqas, Edexcel & City & Guilds, are the boards with which I have recent experience. Learning, I believe, can only take place where clearly communicated ideas are fully understood by the learner; this is where I feel my strengths lie. I specialise in exam technique, and honing study skills, to achieve well written answers, and have had great success with all my students, including those with health/anxiety/confidence/disability issues - their grades going up by 2-3 levels.

There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our English Language teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves an English Language tutor coming to your home in Oswestry to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the English Language tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the English Language tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the English Language tutor is required to travel to your home, in Oswestry. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your English Language tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your English Language tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of English Language tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group English Language tuition in Oswestry depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
