Reddam House is a co-educational, independent school that aspires to excellence in education for girls and boys from three months to 18 years old. The unique Reddam House philosophy and our formula for success are based to a large degree on the quality and depth of our curricula, cultural and sporting activities and especially our teaching staff, fully recognising that what goes on in the classroom between teacher and student strongly influences the success of the school.
Reddam House Berkshire is recruiting for a peripatetic Academic Support Teacher to support our students with specific learning difficulties for English Language and Literature in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.
The candidate will need a good knowledge of the AQA GCSE English Literature and Language syllabus and be a skilled practitioner in supporting students on a one to one, or small group basis, primarily in English but ability to support in general study skills would also be an advantage. Whilst a specialist SEN qualification is desirable, it is not essential for the right candidate. You may currently be an effective tutor supporting Year 7 to 11 students after school but who would welcome some school-hours tutoring.
Academic Support lessons are chargeable on top of our fee structure and charges would be made directly to the parents by the Peripatetic Teacher. This is a self-employed position. Days and hours of work are flexible and we ask candidates to details their days/hours of availability, along with their preferred maximum and minimum preferred hours of work.
We reserve the right to withdraw this vacancy at any time ahead of the closing date if there is a good level of response. Therefore, we would recommend that you submit your application as early as possible.
Closing date: Friday 16 November 2018
