English Tutor GCSE, EFL, 11+/Entrance Exams, A-Level, Degree

I am a fully experienced English teacher, both language and literature. I have extensive experience of working with students of all levels and ages, both here in the UK and also abroad. I have prepared students for numerous English exams, including Entrance Exams/11+, GCSE (both Language & Literature), AS, A2, A-Levels, Cambridge KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE, as well as other internationally recognised exams such as TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, etc. I have experience of preparing students for all of the various formats currently in use by the UK examination boards (AQA, EDEXCEL, WJEC, iGCSE, OCR, IB, etc.). Unfortunately, I do not have the facilities to accommodate student's at my home. I am a fluent Spanish speaker.
I would just like to add that my full time profession is that of "English Tutor", therefore, I take my work very seriously indeed, as I do not tutor solely as a means of a 'second income'. Thus, all of my student's receive my full and undivided attention, regardless as to their requirements or needs.

I have worked with both native and non-native English students of all ages and various levels, from absolute beginners, to those studying English as part of a university degree. I have an excellent success rate with preparing students for their Entrance Exams to local grammar schools, as to date, every single student that I have prepared for the exam, has been offered a placement within their required school. Whilst in Mexico I was hired as the 'Head of English Department/English Co-ordinator' at one of Mexico's most exclusive private bilingual schools. My students have ranged from 4 year old kindergarten children, to the top directors and executives of Latin America's leading cinema chain. I also ran an 'in-house' Business English course in Mexico for 2 years where I worked with some of the leading companies in Latin America, including Cinepolis, Universidad Tecnologico de Monterrey, as well as various private companies. In 2012 I was awarded a 'Certificate of Excellence' by the International Education Services Inc. for my work with schoolchildren.

I always endeavour to ensure that the classes that I prepare are firstly suited to the students level and secondly something that the students are actually going to enjoy participating in. I like to create a relaxed atmosphere for each of my students, as I have found that this leads to far better results, as opposed to a 'sterile classroom' setting. I have an extensive collection of pre-prepared material, as well as numerous different English & Business English workbooks, although each class will be individually tailored to meet the students personal needs. I also like to regularly prepare tests for my students in order to monitor student progress.

Although I would like to add, that with the utmost respect: please do not contact me if your intentions are to haggle over the cost of tuition, as the fees stated on my profile, are non-negotiable. Thank you for your understanding

*AS OF WEDNESDAY 18TH MAY 2016, I WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE FOR ONLINE TUITION*
