Inspiring a love of learning

Tutor specialising in 11+, 13+, 16+ school entrance. Also experienced in GCSE, A level and general academic support. AVAILABLE FOR WORK FROM 22nd OCTOBER

For 2017 Entry, my students received offers from: Godolpin and Latymer, Tiffin Boys, Wycombe Abbey, Latymer Upper, Lady Eleanor Hollis, City of London, Francis Holland, Harrow International, Kew House. Scholarships were received for pupils to attend Francis Holland.

I focus on English comprehension, composition and non-fiction writing, as well as VR and NVR. If you require specific Maths support along side this, I can refer you to other specialist tutors with whom I work in tandem.

Raised by two teachers I have always believed in the importance of education and have always taught alongside whatever else I have done in my life and career.

I studied English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford and since then have been working as an English and Physics tutor in Bristol and London. In whatever subject I am teaching I believe passionately in the importance of hard work and instilling my pupils with a love of learning and the accumulation of knowledge for its own sake: to enrich the individual not merely to pass exams. I try to pass on to my students my own drive and belief in always achieving the best of which you are capable. I work to achieve this by forging a personal but professional relationship with those I teach so that learning is a pleasure not a chore.

I love teaching and always embrace the new challenges it throws at me. I hope I am offering something you may find valuable and I look forward to hearing from you.

Additional Information

When not teaching I work as an actor. I have performed in venues across the country and the National Theatre. I often bring to my teaching my actor's passion for language and human communication. After studying my second degree at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, I now also offer acting and theatre tuition of various forms.

My interest in Physics has always run alongside my love of words, and despite taking an arts degree, I still managed to bring particle Physics into my undergraduate study; ultimately writing my dissertation on the intersection between Chaos discoveries of the 1970s and postmodern literature in America in the same period.

13+/11+ Common Entrance

Hannah has been tutoring my two sons over the last month. Our older son is preparing for 13+ Common Entrance, whilst the younger one (aged 10) is preparing for independent school admission pre-tests (11+ level). Hannah’s was able to quickly develop a good rapport with both boys. She is friendly, but firm, and the boys respond to her and our keen to do work she sets for them. Her focus has been English for our older son, and English, Verbal and Non-verbal reasoning for our younger son. Hannah comes prepared for every session, taking them through the syllabus and past questions during lessons, and setting them homework. In a short space of time we have seen improvements in our boys work. We would most definitely recommend Hannah to other parents looking to prepare their children for Common Entrance / Admission test for secondary school.

Excellent tutor

We engaged Hannah to help our son with his grammar school entrance exams. Hannah was an excellent, and inspirational, tutor and really engaged well with our son, encouraging him and also challenging him to think about the questions and work at formulating his own answers. He enjoyed and looked forward to his sessions with Hannah and she was a pleasure to deal with throughout.

English
Outcome:
Our son progressed through the first stage of his exams (which most pupils did not), scoring quite high pass marks and we are waiting to hear about the second stage.

Inspirational teaching

We were fortunate to meet Hannah quite late in the 11+ process, as we set off to find an inspiring teacher who would get the best out of our daughter in the short run up to the exams.

Hannah demonstrated more than we could have hoped for- a precious combination of deep subject matter expertise in English combined with a unique, coaching approach. My daughter couldn't wait for her lessons with Hannah, and he confidence level rocketed.

I wish we met Hannah earlier and had her tutor our chicks from the start.
Subject:
11 Plus
Outcome:
We are still awaiting the 11+ offers , but we think the impact of Hannah's teaching will go beyond the exam results. Thank you!!!
