Gemma - Central Canterbury - ESOL (English)

Methodology

I am a friendly, native speaking teacher with a clear (RP) British accent. I have been teaching English for over seven years. I make sure that every student receives high quality lessons based around their specific needs.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English. Please check the specific lessons I offer and rates on my profile.

In addition to those, I also teach Verbal Reasoning

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA (hons) Education Studies - Goldsmiths College 2007-2010 - 2:1

CELTA (Cambridge English Language Teaching Accreditation) 2010

MA (hons) Modern and Contemporary Literature - Birkbeck College 2013-2014 - Distinction

- How much do you charge?

ENGLISH LESSONS

I teach 2 hour classes, as I feel this gives us more time to be productive.

I charge £35 online and £45 face-to-face (to cover my travel costs). I also offer attractive discounts for block booking of lessons.

I include a FREE 45 min trial lesson, which is an opportunity to meet and discuss your needs in more detail.

If you would like group lessons, please email me to discuss prices.

PROOFREADING

Rates for 2,000-3,000 words:

£20 - General proofread + minor corrections to grammar and vocabulary.

£30 - Substantive proofread: content, organisation, coherence, formatting.

- Where do you teach?

I will travel anywhere in Canterbury and surrounding areas. In terms of Kent, Thanet areas are fine, as are Medway towns. I would like to teach in Whitstable or Herne Bay. I also travel into London one day a week (Thursdays) - I teach in the North West, close to Kings Cross.

- When are you available?

I am available online most weekday afternoons and Thursday, mid morning until evening in London. Some weekends are OK. I am very flexible with online lessons or lessons in the local Canterbury area. Please let me know and we can arrange something convenient.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Children 11-16
Adults Beginner to Advanced

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

IELTS, CAE, TOIEC, TOEFL, common entrance, 11+

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have plenty of materials specifically designed for online lessons - this includes schemes for work for particular levels or exams. I will teach any aspect of English online, but my main focus is speaking, listening and exam/interview preparation.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have over seven years teaching experience, both in the UK and overseas.

My experiences as an English teacher are varied. This includes: teaching classes to a group of 50 Chinese University students in Southern China, working as a business English teacher with clients from some of the top industries in Paris and running a successful freelance tutoring business in London.

Most recently I have been teaching young people (11-16) online. This could be general English, academic English or interview and entrance exam preparation for independent schools. I have supported a number of successful student applications to some of the top schools in the country, such as Canford, Oundle, Kings School, Marlborough College and Rugby school.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No

My English has improved a lot since I started my lessons with Gemma. She helped me to get a job as a waiter in a Spanish restaurant.

Gemma gave me academic writing lessons during the final year of my Linguistics Degree at Birkbeck. I handed in my essays a few weeks ago and I'm confident I'll do really well!
