Chris G
£42.20 to £53.60 ph

English Tutor Shrewsbury

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.

English Tutor Shrewsbury

My ethos as a tutor aims to give children a toolkit of strategies to break down barriers of learning difficulty, build self-worth, and celebrate every success. I have 16 years of teaching behind me as a primary, secondary, and special education teacher. I strive to make learning exciting and engaging and adapt each of my tutoring sessions according to the needs of each student, slowly building their confidence through scaffolding, encouragement, challenges, and ultimately fostering independence so they can be their best. One of my strongest attributes is forming strong and positive working relationships with the children I teach. I am confident to work with all ages of pupils in KS1/2, KS3 Maths & Science and Catch-up curriculums. I also have significant experience working with special educational needs and specialise in working with complex and autistic learners.

Reviews for English Tutors in Shrewsbury

5.0

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.

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

Thank you very much for all of your hard work teaching Ben. He has come on leaps and bounds since having lessons with you. Marie And Ben

Thank you for all of your help. I now enjoy English. Abbie

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

Thank you for all the work you have carried out with Catriona since February. She has gone from struggling to achieve any improvement in English to being close to the top of the upper step in her school year. We are extremely grateful for all the work you have done. Her improvement would not have been possible without you. Mrs A Shorthouse

I found that Jane quickly grasped what I needed help with and used different and interesting methods to help me progress. Her style was relaxed and calm, yet she taught me a lot in the couple of weeks I had before my exams. I was pleased with my results and did much better than I thought I was going to before I had Jane as a tutor. Lucy Frances

Vicky is amazing she has really helped my daughter prosper and reach her potential Mrs Ahmed

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 tutor coming to your home in Shrewsbury 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 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 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 tutor is required to travel to your home, in Shrewsbury. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your English 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 tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of English 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 tuition in Shrewsbury 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.
