About Madeleine

Inspiring Reliable Cheerful Organised Supportive Motivating

That's how former students/parents describe me. I'm Tutorfair's top selling tutor, with over 1,750 hours on Tutorfair and over 4,000 hours' experience in the last 7 years.

My approach to tutoring is flexible, tailored to each student's unique needs. My psychology background informs my approach to tuition. I use my expertise to improve my students' cognitive (thinking) skills and to identify their individual needs and strengths.

I specialise in 11+ admissions/common entrance, LSATs (*Prices vary!*ask me for prices), and Psychology (A-Level - PhD). My students have been placed at top Universities, including Georgetown, BU, USC, UCSD and NYU and top UK schools including: St. Paul's (girls' and boys'), Eton, Godolphin & Latymer, Latymer Upper, King's College Wimbledon, Wetherby, LEH, JAGS, Francis Holland, City of London, North London Collegiate, St. Mary's Ascot, Kew Bridge, Notting Hill and Ealing School, and the American School London.

I think it's important that an educator is excited about the subject they teach in order to engage their students. I have a passion for spreading knowledge and motivating others; and I love learning.

I focus on developing time management and study skills, which will help students to help themselves, in addition to working on subject proficiency. I like to give students guidance, not answers, so that they can develop their own ideas and produce their own work. I have a professional, yet friendly and approachable demeanour, excellent communication skills, and tactful, diplomatic, student-oriented approaches to problem solving.

Former parents/students say:

“Really really helpful! Gave me lots of ways to understand statistics within psychology, thankyou!”
-Alice (University Statistics)

"I understand it now and am the first to finish our classwork! I have been asking for extra worksheets from my teacher."
-Francesca (GCSE Maths)

"I moved up a maths set!"
-Charlotte (Maths and Basic Skills GCSE)

"Madeleine, just got Julien’s report...it is superb!"
-Caroline (ISEE, Primary 11+)

“My son's confidence and motivation have certainly increased as he has received the guidance and advice that he needed, and wouldn't take from parents, on how to study and take exams as well as coaching on specific topics. He says these sessions have been much more useful to him than the classes at his college.” -John (A-level Psychology)

"I graduated with 1st class honours! I got an A in my dissertation! So thank you for all your help along the way!"
-Despina (Psychology BA)

(In addition to listed subjects, LSAT tuition is available at a negotiated price. LSAT score: 170 -98th percentile. Earned a full scholarship, and a place at Cornell law school.)

She was punctual, cheerful and very helpful in explaining how the test would be different from the UK ones -- especially for the Verbal section. i highly recommend her to others navigating the USA tests.

Very good score on the SSAT. Accepted to top-choice US boarding school.

Amazing Results, Friendly and Creative

Written by Julia G
Madeleine has been Julia's (13 years old) tutor for over a year! We started with maths in the beginning, but Madeleine took over science: physics, biology, chemistry, English ... Amazing results!!!
Madeleine is very friendly , relaxes Julia with her presence , but teaches in ways that no one has ever attempted to in the past ... She has descriptive ways to bring to life whatever she needs to teach, and gives not only clarity to her pupil for whatever the needs are, but also creates visual patterns that are then easily remembered.

She is "the friend" to our daughter but also introduces the stillness of boundaries which are so needed for any subject to be learnt and deepened. Madeleine has proved to be "our rock" in a multitude of ways and we are so grateful we have her for our daughter.
It started with maths but now she is helping Julia with 4 other subjects. We can definitely see the difference in Julia, in her results and confidence at school, but, most importantly, the school notices the huge difference in our Julia!!!

We couldn't be more pleased with having Madeleine as Julia's tutor at our Fulham address in London. The results are amazing!!!
Subject:
Maths (GCSE)
Outcome:
Increased confidence and knowledge in Year 10 maths and science

A little disappointed

Written by Laura Y
When first meeting Madeleine, I felt it was going to be really helpful as she had great ideas for my dissertation and was confident she would be able to help me gain the grade that I wanted. As I say, at first, she got back to be very quickly and gave me really helpful feedback on corrections. However, as the deadline drew closer, she seemed absent and went away on holiday with no prior notice and was unable to look at any of my work for several weeks. This being stressful so close to the deadline.
I then received my grade for my dissertation, this being 20-30 marks lower than expected and intended. I emailed Madeleine to get some feedback and had to email several times in order to get a response, by this time it was too late to get my paper remarked or sent to the board.
I think Madeleine has the potential to be great and has helped me to some extent, I was just personally slightly disappointed with the service I received.
Subject:
Psychology (Degree)
Outcome:
A much lower grade than expected

Broad knowledge base, along with excellent specialist skills

Written by Karen J
Madeleine has been tutoring my 14 year old daughter, starting with maths but going on to cover English, other subjects and school life generally. She has excellent insight into our daughter's lack of confidence as a learner, and a wide range of strategies for tackling this. Madeleine is always punctual and reliable, kind and understanding, without losing sight of the academic focus. In addition to her excellent academic credentials, Madeleine's experience in other fields - including psychology, drama/dance etc - mean that she is able to connect with and really engage my daughter.
Subject:
Maths
Outcome:
Improved maths and English, motivation and study skills. Ongoing.

LSAT tutoring

Written by Joel S
Highly highly recommended. Every single technique that Madeliene taught me immediately proved to be highly effective when applied. She has raised my confidence, scores and general test-taking ability in the month that I've seen her. Paired with her LSAT skills she also has a great knowledge of method and psychological preparations which mean so much in the LSAT.
Subject:
LSAT
Outcome:
My test is next week but regardless I am undeniably improved since seeing Madeleine.

Fantastic LSAT Preparation

Written by Emily C
Madeleine was a fantastic help to get me prepared for my second LSAT attempt. In just one week she taught me new techniques to improve my accuracy in the test and I felt much more confident this time around. I don't think I could've done it without her - thanks Madeleine!
Subject:
LSAT
Outcome:
I felt much more confident going into my exam the second time around as the I felt confident that the techniques and practice Madeleine had taught me would really help. I am still waiting on the resul

Fabulous and motivating tutor

Written by Rachel B
I can't recommend Madeleine highly enough. She tutored my daughter whose school does not teach psychology, in the run up to the Oxford application process - supporting her through the exam and the interviews. My daughter was subsequently offered a place - huge thanks Madeleine.

Outcome:
Offered a place

Very competent and friendly

Written by Monika S
I have got Madeleine for tutoring my daughter for 11+ exams, to polish up her maths. My daughter was initially opposed to the idea of tutor - but as reviewing with me was getting us into heated situations, she agreed to try a tutor. After first lesson with Madeleine we never looked back. Rachel was completely at ease from the start, I could hear pleasant chatter and some giggles - and my daughter was very happy to go ahead with the lessons. Madeleine had always the plan what to cover, suggestions for Rachel what and how to practice without adding strain, and in addition to math, she contributed significantly to my daughters improvement in comprehension and interviewing skills. Today, our daughter received an offer for our dream school that always felt to be a stretch a bit too far away. I am very happy and grateful that we found Madeleine a year ago, it made all the difference.
Subject:
11 Plus
Outcome:
An offer from the preferred school, and from all other schools that we applied for. A perfect result.
