Experienced and Enthusiastic Tutor

I have been tutoring for the past 4 years, starting with face to face peer mentoring at school and during my undergraduate studies, and moving to online work in the last year. Working with students of different ages and academic abilities allowed me to demonstrate my patience and adaptability skills, as tutoring sessions were tailored to the needs of each student.

In my tutoring sessions I aim to convey passion and enthusiasm, using the idea of 'little and often' to gradually build up students' understanding of their subject, creating a concrete knowledge base which can be substantiated outside the classroom. Setting aims for each session will allow the student to see and chart their own progress, motivating them to improve further . Tackling the student's weakest area is important for maintaining their confidence in all areas of study; for example, by confronting a particularly tricky bit of Latin grammar, a student will feel better about approaching prose composition as a whole.

Elaine Sanderson

Elaine is very well prepared to teach Latin, having studied it to the highest level as a BA Classics student at the University of Exeter. She is a natural linguist and a natural communicator who can explain ideas articulately and clearly. She also has a tangible enthusiasm for the subject and played a valuable role as a tutor on our peer-mentoring scheme at Exeter. I therefore recommend her to you without reservation.

Fantastic help at Tutorfair event

Elaine was a great help at the Exeter event that the Tutorfair team attended to tell university students about how they can earn money and help others through working with us. She was friendly, confident and measured which was brilliant for us. I'm sure Elaine will be equally good when tutoring one on one!
