Phil Hawker - Independent Private Tutor locationCedar Drive, Weymouth, Dorset

I have recently moved to Weymouth following six years in Eastbourne, where I tutored a wide range of children from 8 to 15 years old. Prior to that I spent six years in West Yorkshire where I worked as a a self-employed independent education consultant, and also as a School Improvement Partner and Link Officer for Calderdale MBC. I have over thirty years teaching experience in primary, junior and middle schools.I have always loved teaching children and feel that I can help them develop self-esteem and confidence.

My current availability is as follows:

Wednesday until 5 pm
Wednesday after 6.45 pm

I am also available to teach ESL Wednesday am

These sessions tend to fill very quickly so please contact me asap if you are interested.

I have a wide background experience in teaching and education, having taught in five different schools in five different English education authorities, before becoming a School Link Officer / School Improvement Partner. I have held posts in large and small schools, with management experience in each, and I have taught children in all age-groups of primary, junior and 8-12 middle schools. I have, at one time or another, held particular responsibility for Curriculum Development, Maths, English, Science, Technology, ICT, PE, Art, French and Special Needs. I was Deputy Headteacher at two widely differing schools before becoming Headteacher of a small primary school. I maintained a teaching commitment of two to three days per week throughout my time as Headteacher of the school.

I base my approach to tutoring on an understanding of the individual needs of each student. I firmly believe that all children are capable of success. It is the tutor's role to find the most effective way of teaching for each individual child and to have an understanding of each child's preferred learning style. I always begin with an initial diagnosis based on discussion with the parents and an analysis of the student's current ability. Further sessions will concentrate on developing the skills of the student in line with a planned programme of work and targets, which has been agreed with the parents and student. I have a relaxed and friendly style with students but also have high expectations of their progress.
