Hello! I am a patient, friendly and trustworthy female tutor. I have a Degree in English and Drama from Bristol University, as well as a Masters in Acting from Birmingham City University. Since completing my degree, I have built up several years of tutoring experience working with different levels and abilities. I have tutored a range of exam levels including 11+ entry exams for Grammar Schools, Key Stage 2 SATS, GCSE and A Level.
I am a conscientious, enthusiastic, approachable and fun tutor. I love to see my students going from strength to strength, growing in confidence and reaching their goals.
I teach English and Maths at Key Stage 2 level and tutor for 11+ entrance exams (including English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-verbal reasoning). Whether working towards entry exams, or to help improve English and Maths at Key Stage 2, all of my pupils have gained in academic and self confidence whilst learning with me. I have successfully helped children to achieve entry into various schools including:
Pate's Grammar School (Cheltenham)
St John's, Leatherhead
City of London Freemen's School
St George's, Weybridge
Tormead (including some scholarship places)
Surbiton High (including some scholarship places)
At Secondary level, I teach Theatre Studies and English literature to A Level, focusing particularly on play texts, practitioners and Shakespeare, but also working with poetry and novels. My focus is on helping my students discover ideas for themselves as we learn new strategies for exploring text. We work towards exams so that students are fully prepared and confident, with nerves banished.
Lessons are normally on a weekly basis, unless you request otherwise, and I always give homework so that you can continue learning and improving at home. However, there is never any pressure to complete the homework - I want you to enjoy learning with me as much as possible!
I have a fun and friendly approach to teaching. In preparation for 11+ entrance exams, I will work with you using a mixture of straight and multiple-choice practice papers. Over time, the difficulty of the papers I choose will increase and as the test approaches we will work more and more on skills and tricks that will help you finish the test in the time and with great confidence. Papers cover verbal and non-verbal reasoning (where appropriate), as well as a focus on English and Maths skills. I have a high success rate and find that all my pupils enjoy their sessions and greatly improve in confidence at school, as well as for the tests themselves.
For Theatre Studies and English Lessons at a Secondary level, I specialise in exam preparation. We will work together to explore your academic texts and make new and exciting discoveries about them. Through our lessons, you will gain in confidence in writing your ideas in an academic way and you will become thoroughly prepared for your exams so that nerves will be banished and you can approach them with confidence.
