Information About Ailis - Streatham tutor - (13 reviews)
This is how 4 referees rated Ailis:
I have a first class degree in English Literature from Edinburgh University, and am now pursuing a career as an actor having recently graduated from drama school. I offer tutoring in English, Maths, and Drama, from KS2 (including 11+ preparation) up to A Level and beyond.
At university I particularly focused on classical literature and wrote my dissertation on Shakespeare’s King Lear, as well as taking part in plenty of student theatre productions. I also studied Italian and Classics as subsidiary subjects for the first two years of my degree.
In A Level Maths I achieved almost full marks, and completed the full A Level in one year.
As well as academic help with Theatre Studies and Drama, I can also provide practical acting coaching and advice on drama school applications and auditions.
I am based inSouth London, and am willing to travel.
I have lots of experience as an English and Maths tutor from Key Stage 2 right up to A Level. I have worked as a teacher with a top 11+ tuition **Contact Detail Removed**, and I am also particularly experienced in teaching GCSE English and English Literature.
GCSE: I am also familiar with the new 9-1 grading system - all of my pupils who sat these specifications in English and Maths last year exceeded expectations in their results.
In my opinion, a passion for the subject is the most important thing – it’s much easier to do well in a subject you like! My main focus is therefore to encourage and draw from the pupil’s enjoyment of their subject, and use this to hone a good exam technique. By instilling enthusiasm and confidence in pupils, I aim to equip them not only with the skills to improve academically, but skills that will help them to continue achieving later in life.

Ailis is reliable, pleasant and clearly experienced. She is, in short, an excellent tutor and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
She was always on time and if not, she would always let us know if she was held up and would be late.
Overall, I would recommend Ailis to anyone who wants a reliable and capable tutor.
Thanks for all your help, Ailis!
Before her visit her communication was excellent and she was proactive in asking questions about the exam board and topics to focus on.
Ailis is punctual; she keeps us well informed if travel conditions conspire against her.
It's clear that she is a very good choice of tutor; our daughter's attitude towards the subject is visibly improved.
There's no doubt in my mind that this is a direct result of Ailis' tutoring; she strikes a good balance between gently leading P to conclusions, discussing themes in greater detail and building P's confidence in her own abilities.
Ailis has a warm and friendly personality which quickly and easily counteracts teenage nerves.
She has a good rapport with P and the study sessions are productive and enjoyable.
