Engaging Professional Tutor with a First from Cambridge

I have now been tutoring for four years, racking up around 1500 hours of experience. As well as giving private tuition across a range of levels and subjects I have been a full-time teacher to four girls being home-schooled, have worked part-time in schools and community schools with classes and individuals.

I bring together the Cambridge supervision style and my own intuitive approach, as well as Waldorf Steiner and other alternative influences, to deliver sessions that are adapted to each students' particular needs.

In the Cambridge style I use pointed questions to get a tutee talking (one of the best ways to develop thinking) for a good two thirds of the time. When it comes to my own talking time I tend to aim high in order to inspire and challenge the student, instead of lowering the level for comfort. However, I take great care to build the tutee's confidence and help them realise their own potential.

Written by Richard W

Laura is absolutely fantastic for the job.

Laura has miraculously reignited a lost spark for me in terms of reading and enjoying the study of several English Literature texts such as Paradise Lost and the Duchess of Malfi. She is a calm and composed tutor, who allows for me to generate ideas and concepts and then helps me to build upon them to provide high quality analysis. She has helped me with my AS and A Level English Literature a great deal, and I can do nothing but highly recommend her to tutor others.
Subject:
English Literature
Outcome:
I achieved an A in my AS level for English, the highest grade achievable at that stage, and I am waiting to complete my exams for my A2.
