Personal Description:

My name is Eleanor. I am currently working as a private tutor and at a well established tuition centre. Prior to this I taught English, Maths and History at a local independent school. In my GCSE's I achieved 12 A*-A grades including English, Maths and Science. In my A Levels I achieved 4 A's including English Literature. I have a real passion for tutoring and feel it should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience for both the tutor and the tutee.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored at one of the leading tuition centres in the UK for eight years. My job title is 'Senior English Tutor' and I am responsible for planning and organising the students work from ages 4-16. Prior to this I taught English, history and mathematics at a local independent school. I have also been doing private tuition for over seven years, specialising in GCSE English Literature and Language. All of the GCSE students that I have taught have improved their grades. Their parents often comment on how much their motivation and confidence have also increased. One of my recent students improved his predicted English GCSE grade from a '3' to a '6' in just two terms. He then went on to secure a level '6' grade in his English GCSE. Another of my recent students achieved 8's in both her English Literature and Language GCSE's, having been previously predicted 4/5. I am up-to-date with the recent changes to the GCSE syllabus and the new 9-1 grade boundaries.

Additionally, I am also currently tutoring several students in English and Maths at primary school level. One of my recent primary students was predicted level '3' in her English Key Stage 2 SATs and after working together she went on to achieve level '5'.

Aside from the standard National Curriculum subjects, I also specialise in preparing students for the 11+. In the most recent set of examinations, both of my 11+ tutees successfully passed and went on to secure places at their chosen schools.

Tutoring Approach:

My first session with a tutee will involve getting to know the student and their individual needs. On the first visit I carry out a formal assessment to identify any gaps, strengths and weaknesses and plan work accordingly thereafter. All of my sessions follow the national curriculum and examination board specifications. For students at GCSE level we will be going through past papers, content, exam techniques and essay writing. For children at primary school level my sessions are engaging and interactive whilst sticking to the syllabus. This might include doing fun activities like adjective or number games, which will make the sessions enjoyable whilst keeping them relevant and focused.
