- How much do you charge?

I normally charge £25 per hour, plus £5 for travel within a 10 mile radius.. It is £30 plus £ 5 for travel if applicable for AS or A2. I charge a minimum of £30 during school hours plus petrol costs. i will also tutor two students together for the same price.

- Where do you teach?

I can teach at my own home or travel to Woking, Byfleet, Walton, Weybridge, Chertsey, Virginia Water, Ascot, Chobham, Cobham. I do not normally travel to new students who start in February - June, as I get extremely booked up and there is no travel time available, but it is worth asking. However, I continue to travel to students I have taken on from the beginning of the year.

- When are you available?

Mainly after school or Saturdays after 12 noon. I will take on clients for two hour sessions during the school day. I normally do supply teaching in schools during the day.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Most of my experience is with secondary students and adults, but I have had a fair amount of Primary experience over the last sixr years. I do not recommend formal language lessons for children under 9.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

French and Italian and Religious Studies to Advanced Level. Beginners German to GCSE. English to GCSE

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

We have skype, but have not yet tutored directly on line. I have made individual power point presentations for pupils and sent them.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My students find my lessons particularly helpful and gain confidence.It's never too late to learn. You will be able to succeed. If you find the work difficult, study for a few minutes at a time, have a break and come back to it. Start your revision early.
When you take your exams, read the question very carefully. Plenty of students get lower marks than they should because they do not answer the exact question they have been asked. This applies to very short questions as much as to the longer essay type questions. Make sure you have understood the point of the question.

About Sue

- What kind of experience do you have?

Over 40 years in state and independent schools in the South East. 5 years experience of adult education at night school. I have been tutoring since 1964 and gained excellent results. I make some of my own materials and gear lessons to the student's individual needs. Different students have different preferred ways of learning and it is important to find out what works best for each individual - whether visual, hearing, reading or by experience. I have made power point presentations to support learning. If you are a slow learner, I am patient. If you need to be stretched, I will push you to an advanced level.

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

Yes, from February this year.
I have just applied for a new one through Eteach, July 2015

- Where and with whom did you train?

London University. London Institute of Education 1968. PGCE

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

ATL

- Tell me about some of your current students.

. My last group of RS students all got A s and A stars. The secretary of a firm where I tutored said I always go the extra mile. My students for German and for Philosophy found me very helpful. I taught Italian from January to June in a special school for students with Aspergers. in 2013.
This last academic year 2014-15 I was teaching three boys and one girl English to GCSE. I had had two of these boys for three years. One boy won a prize for the most improvement in English. I still hatve two boys going into Year 11 for English.
I have two girls and two boys who have been studying French and German me for two and three years. Another girl has just taken her French GCSE after two years with me. Last year the elder sister of one of the boys got an A in both French and German after studying with me. I have just entered one girl for AS level French and another for AS Italian. She got an A star in Italian last year after only one lesson a week. I also have an adult learner for Italian.
I have tutored one boy for RS gxse and two girls for A2 RS this year.
