Personal Description:

Hello! My name is Elliott. I’m an enthusiastic and dedicated full-time tutor with seven years of experience. I hold degrees from both the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge.

Despite what you might think, I struggled at school when I was younger. Classroom learning can be boring and difficult. Teaching is too often formulaic and repetitive. It wasn’t until I started working independently that I began to experience success and develop a real love of learning.

One-on-one tuition can make a huge difference not only to a student’s results but to their attitude towards school. In my seven years of tutoring experience, I’ve helped dozens of students improve their grades, get into their first-choice schools, and ignite their passion for learning. It’s amazing what students can achieve when someone takes the time to understand their perspective, answer their questions and address their concerns.

I am now booking students for September. My schedule fills quickly so get in touch soon.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked with over 30 students and gained over 1000 hours of tutoring experience. In this time, I have tutored students of all ages and levels: from Key Stage 1 all the way up to university preparation. I have special experience and expertise in the following subjects:

• Maths (KS1-KS5, GCSE, AS-Level, A-Level)
• Further Maths (AS-Level, A-Level)
• English Literature (GCSE, AS-Level, A-Level)
• English Language (GCSE, AS-Level, A-Level)
• Philosophy (GCSE, AS-Level, A-Level)
• Religious Studies/Theology (GCSE, AS-Level, A-Level)
• 7+ Entrance Exams
• 8+ Entrance Exams
• 11+ Entrance Exams
• 13+ Entrance Exams
• Personal Statements (drafting and editing)
• Oxford Admissions Exams (MAT)
• Oxford Interview Preparation (in Maths, Philosophy and Theology)
• Cambridge Admissions Exams (STEP)
• Cambridge Interview Preparation (in Maths, Philosophy and Theology)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is confidence-building, question-based and results-driven.

The first step is to build confidence. Many students find the classroom intimidating and are worried about giving the wrong answer. By creating a friendly environment and by emphasising that answers (even wrong ones!) are the first step to understanding, I can build a student’s confidence so that they are not afraid to tackle even the most difficult problems independently.

The second element of my approach is question-based. In the classroom, teachers lecture their students. Talking for minutes at a time means students lose interest and start thinking of other things. I ask friendly questions of my students, keeping them on their toes and testing their understanding. Focusing on the student is the best way to keep lessons interesting and quickly identify any misunderstandings.

The final element of my approach is results-driven. Quickly identifying misunderstandings allows us to focus on each student’s particular weaknesses and concerns. This is the most efficient and enjoyable way to improve results. I track each student’s progress using my own bespoke exercises and quizzes. Students are often shocked to see how quickly they’ve improved! The thrill of seeing real progress motivates students to push on, tackling harder problems and developing a real passion for learning.

I am now booking students for September. My schedule fills quickly so get in touch soon.
