I am a dedicated, reliable and enthusiastic full-time tutor with experience from a variety of educational establishments (up to and including higher education). My specialist subject is tutoring pupils for the 11+ and or common entrance exams. Regular feedback on student progress is provided throughout tuition and a learning plan is put in place from the initial lesson and first meeting. Excellent references available upon request.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Professional, bespoke and confidence-giving.

What qualifications do you have?

University of Oxford | Effective Online Tutoring | University of Exeter | BA (Hons) 2.1 Management with English

Tell us about your experience...

Several of my students are preparing for the 11 plus exam in September and pupils sitting entrance exams in January. My older pupils have just sat GCSE maths and English exams. I have helped students excel in exams and gain confidence in their learning overall. I am committed to seeing all my students succeed and shine with the achievement of having done so.

What locations do you tutor in?

In central Exeter or at my office near the new IKEA. I also tutor online from my office via Skype. As with all my lessons, I provide course materials and these are sent across digitally prior to the start of the lesson. There may be a few textbooks that I recommend but these are normally minimal and I always seek out the very best books for each student.

What is your personal message to students?

Don't give up on any subject which may seem initially challenging and have confidence in your ability! Sometimes it may only take a different approach in transferring the subject knowledge that will make topics more understandable and most importantly enjoyable.
