My approach to private tuition is very much the same as my thorough teaching within the classrooms of the four independent schools I have had the pleasure of working in: create very clear, tangible goals for each of my students with a dash of good Northern humour and kindness to truly bring their self-confidence and ambitions to the surface. I...

As a tutor, I am dedicated to establishing a learning environment in which a student can feel relaxed, take enjoyment from study, and, perhaps most importantly, grow in confidence, both personally and academically. I strive to turn learning into an immensely positive experience, aiming to locate academic areas in which a student might be struggling, before working through issues as...

I care deeply about helping people to develop confidence in their ideas and their imaginative capacities and recognise that many of these pivotal moments happen whilst we are still in education. As a practicing artist I know how moving from tender beginnings of ideas into manifesting artworks requires real courage and commitment. Having someone someone you can trust in to...

Explaining your ideas to someone in a clear way is a hugely helpful first step before putting them on the page. So I start by discussing your project and asking you questions to help you clarify what it is you want to say. Then we can break the writing down into manageable chunks and find a structure and style that...

I enjoy getting to know you as an individual and how you learn; I am happy to bring in music, movement, visual cues and dynamism in all forms if it helps you to absorb the curriculum. I like laughter and informality, though be assured, I know how to build in structure with those of you who need a push Lateral...

Olivia S

At GCSE and above, I help to link up all the disparate bits of information floating around in the minds of students, so as to structure persuasive essays and give rigour and cohesion to intellectual thought. My approach is to balance content with strategy - making students feel calm and in control, confident of their own ability rather than mine. For 11+...

Each client is unique and I carefully tailor my approach accordingly. I believe that enjoyment is the key to success and that success itself is an excellent motivator, so finding out what makes a student tick is very important to me. We work together to build on strengths and overcome weaknesses in each subject with a balance of discursive and...

Daniel S

I help my students to feel more confident about what they are doing, whether it’s writing, analysing or figuring out the best way to perform in exams because I understand in detail where that confidence comes from and how it can make us perform much better than we think we can.

I keep communications open so students can email me with...

George W

In a 1-on-1 context, I feel it is vital to be approachable. Tutoring can be somewhat disarming for a tutee, so it is important to make their effort and thoughts feel valued. My primary aim is to build their confidence & passion for the subject, providing fertile ground for them to improve and excel....
