My Approach to Private Tuition

I am the tutor who is also the friend. I am enthusiastic and warm, and my priority is always to build a child’s confidence and give them a love of learning that they often cannot develop in a crowded classroom.

I know just how much all children are capable of, so I also like to push my tutees as far as they can go. I want to find what a child is great at, and push that to its limit! My memory of the best teachers I had at school were the ones who helped me go even further than I needed to, and who gave me a greater and more interesting amount of knowledge and information than a syllabus laid out for me. Rather than learning just to answer set questions in an exam, I felt I truly understood and was fascinated by those subjects.

This is what I want for my tutees, and I aim to help a child seek improvement for themselves, not because I demand it of them. As a result of my efforts, I want my tutees to develop positively as a person as well as within the subject we are working on.

Client Feedback

“I am enormously grateful to Lucy. Without her amazing help and clever teaching our daughter would never have achieved the result she did. THANK YOU!”

“The results were incredible. He really benefited from Lucy’s help and guidance, and looked forward to having classes with her every time.”

“Lucy is a great tutor! We have every confidence in her dedication and abilities.”

“Our son scored 97% UMS marks in his English Language A-Level, which is within 2.1% of all the boys taking English this year. For English Literature his UMS score was 97% again, which is within 4% of all the boys this year! This brilliant result is largely thanks to Lucy’s help.”

“I don`t know what we would have done without Lucy!”

“Lucy completely rebuilt our daughter’s confidence after being crushed by school.”
