I have been a chief examiner for AQA IGCSE French, principal examiner for AQA GCSE French and am currently an assistant lead examiner for AQA GCSE French. I have also examined at A level. I firmly believe that academic excellence, allied to an outgoing nature made me a successful teacher and I would look to bring the same qualities to my job as a tutor.

Mr Lee V

A radically different approach to English tutoring- This is my unique selling point: My approach focuses on specific language and structural techniques, how to use them easily and why they work. It produces dramatic breakthroughs after as little as two to three lessons. My students are enthused and encouraged after lesson one as their confidence soars. Even students who ' don't get English ', realise that using simple techniques, they are guaranteed to improve significantly. I also prepare students for Common Entrance, which overlaps somewhat with the above, the same writing skills being necessary, giving them a unique opportunity to stand out. I also teach primary maths, with a speciality being times tables. My method here is to use highly memorable songs and jingles. My (brief) biography- I taught Secondary English and Primary ( all subjects) for 24 years in Worcestershire and the West Midlands. Presently I am focused upon individual tutoring, where I see the most dramatic impacts.

Hereford primary school performance:

The Hereford area has 16 primary schools (one of the top being Marlbrook Primary School with 23% of pupils achieving at a higher standard).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“Children achieve extremely well in both the Nursery and Reception classes because teaching and the quality of care and welfare support are outstanding. Children start school with skills that are much lower than those found typically, especially in language and literacy and social development. They make excellent progress from these very low starting points and standards rise to just below average levels by the start of Year 1. Children do especially well in personal, social and emotional development because of the high expectations of all adults.”

The Hereford local authority has an average of 69% of students meeting the expected standards in reading, writing, and maths at primary school age (vs England's average of 65%). And has an average of 12% achieving higher standard (vs England's average of 11%).
