Hi, I'm Lisa, I live in Hutton, North Somerset, with my husband Jonathan, our two daughters, ages 11 and 5, our Foster Son, aged 16 and our cat, Elsie. I've worked as a private tutor for 6 years now, helping children ranging from age 5-15. I offer tutoring sessions in my home as well as travelling to students homes. I offer all subjects across the Primary ages and English up to GCSE level. I tutor home educated children during the day and offer some after school sessions.

Tutoring Approach

My Tutoring approach always begins with building self esteem, confidence and healthy mindset. I help my students to know the difference between a fixed and growth mindset, helping them to understand that when they begin to feel challenged this is when they are learning and to help them to persevere and work through until they begin to understand. Risk taking is part of learning and I help them to embrace this and develop confidence and healthy self-esteem related to their learning.
I aim to find out the learning style of each individual student and the level they are working at and plan each session according to their needs.
