An energetic person with passion and contagious enthusiasm.

I know that young children, but to some degree all young people, would rather be doing anything but an hour's tutoring. This is why my teaching style is full of energy and enthusiasm. I try to make learning as fun as possible and the subjects I teach as exciting and engaging for my students as I find them myself.

I have been a private tutor for 5 years and mainly work with children to get them up to speed for their 11+ exams. My focus is English but I also teach Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. My students have passed exams for schools such as Henrietta Barnet, St Pauls, Tiffin, North London Collegiate Schools, Wilson Grammar, WCGS and others.

I am currently studying for a BA in English and Drama at the University of Roehampton. Having worked freelance for a long time, unqualified, I intend on applying for a PCGE and going into comprehensive secondary schools, teaching Drama and English. I have previously worked in and out of schools in many different posts; private tutor, teaching assistant (national curriculum and within youth theatres), sports coach, drama facilitator, running workshops and in SEN.

I teach Shakespeare and early modern language to all ages in workshops and one-to-one sessions. I work part time as an actor and also teach Drama and Acting; incorporating this skill in more academic sessions to make classes fun for children and young adults. I also use it to prepare children for the 11+ entrance interview. I work on GCSE/A Level coursework and exam preparation for English and Drama.

I spent a lot of time working with a range of mild to intensely SEN children in my year-long post at the Linden Lodge school in Southfields, so have great experience with additional needs.

It may sound like I have done a lot of different kinds of teaching but I think this an advantage. It gives me a wider knowledge of all the different individuals I will meet and need to nuture.

To sum up; I am a passionate about theatre and education. I have a lot of experience in the many different and nuanced areas of English and Theatre Studies and impress upon all of my students the importance of hard work, nicely balanced with the fun times!

Highly recommended!

Claudia is a fantastic teacher. She has helped our son in English at his pace without putting too much pressure on the child. We have seen tremendous improvement in his vocabulary, grammar, sentence construction, creative writing, etc. Thanks to her that our son cleared Wilson's Grammar and WCGS selective exams.

We highly recommend her.

Claudia Carroll - perfect tutor

Claudia is a very literate, kind, polite and knowledgeable person. She is very patient and explains very well. My daughter and Claudia had a very good relationship. It was a good mixture of effective learning and having a chat, i.e. about the best books to read.
Subject:
11 Plus
Outcome:
Although my daughter took some 11+ admission tests we decided in the end on a completely different school. However, her general knowledge benefitted immensely from Claudia's tutoring.

Tutoring 10-year old boy

Despite being a ferocious reader with an extensive vocabulary, our 10-year old struggles with English and is below national average making the 11plus a stretch for him. The last thing he wants to do is a couple of hours of English extra each week but Claudia gets him and is working through the more difficult topics that he would otherwise ignore or refuse to try. It's slow because of his baseline ability/learning difficulties but Claudia is breaking it down in bite-size manageable chunks and the progress is steady and he is learning which is the best we could have hoped for at this stage! Would certainly recommend Claudia as an English tutor. She is engaging, encouraging, patient, enthusiastic and fun!
