Looking for a tutor for the Easter Holidays?

GSCE English Lit and Lang. (AQA, CIE, CCEA, Edexcel, ICAAE, OCR, WJEC), essay technique, 13+, 11+, Primary.

With GCSEs fast approaching, it may be time to knuckle down and get your head around those exam papers. Often it is a case of simply being taken through some practice papers and exploring exactly what the examiners are after. Depending on the needs of each student, I will look at elements such as specific exam questions and what they require, essay structure, planning, revision tips, text guidance, close analysis (both poetry and prose) and exploration of major themes and characters.

Finding the right tutor for you is really important. Everything counts, from their teaching methods right the way through to their personality or sense of humour.

When I was in school, I struggled through maths until I found a tutor who transformed the subject for me, taking away the fear and embarrassment of not understanding and replacing it with comprehension, confidence and even (shockingly) enjoyment!

She made it fun, something I had never thought would be possible. She took the time to investigate what it was that I was struggling with and targeted areas where I was making repeated same mistakes. And she had patience to go over things as many times as I needed, in as many different ways as she could think of until it clicked.

Experiencing this kind of tuition was both inspiring and encouraging and this is the kind of tutor I aim to be.

One-to-one tuition provides the freedom to learn at your own pace, in a way that is unique to you. Sometimes all it takes is some extra time and patience, or a different way to explain something to a specific person. That's why I love what one-to-one tuition has to offer.

Reference for Michelle as a tutor in English.

Michelle tutored my daugther in London in person and through Skype. She’s been giving her very diversified tutoring. My daughter loved Michelle’s lessons and spending time with her. I believe my daughter benefited very much from her time with Michelle. She’s very inventive and I can recommend Michelle as a tutor in English both in academic and non-academic terms.

A talented and passionate tutor.

Michelle tutored my son for around six months in 2012-2013. It was a pleasure to have her as a tutor and I will recommend her without hesitation.

Michelle is focused, creative, organized and always on time.
While tutoring my son she quickly gained a very good understanding of his common entrance requirements and was able to use the curriculum and past papers to help our son prepare revision notes and tackle key questions especially in English, History and RS. Our son made excellent progress in these subjects.

Above all, steady progress helped our son gain confidence in his abilities. He sat the common entrance with confidence and landed an academic scholarship to the school of his choice. Michelle played a big part into raising his confidence. She just relates to children in a unique way , that's an exceptional gift!

Understand child psychology and use interesting techniques to teach

I appointed Michelle in 2014 to support my son in English when he was preparing for 11+ entrance examination. She made a very strong connection with my son very quickly and came up with interesting techniques to teach him. His English results in school made significant progress and it was clearly evident in his school report. She is a very likeable person and she has this unique talent of making a bond with kids. I have no hesitation in recommending Michelle for teaching other kids.

A fantastic tutor for my 8yr old

Michelle is a fantastic tutor. We were looking for someone to help our daughter to improve her literacy skills, particularly in comprehension and creative writing in preparation for a 8+ entrance exam.
We were impressed with Michelle from the first communication - she was prompt to reply and very clear on how each session would work.
Michelle clicked with our daughter immediately and Emily really enjoyed the lessons and this is down to Michelle's preparation and the way she interacts with children. She is extremely passionate about her subject and this was a huge motivation for Emily. We would not hesitate to recommend Michelle as a tutor.

Need an inspiring, intellectual and fun English/English Lit tutor?

Our 12 year old daughter needed specialised tuition to get her from good to great. She had switched from the UK to the U.S. system and back, so we needed someone that was extremely knowledgeable and intellectual but had the EQ to inspire and deliver the required results. Michelle was able to get our daughter excited about Shakespeare as much as she is about what is new on Instagram or who sent what on Snapchat. Michelle has the unique quality of understanding your child, breaking through the confidence block and translating it into results.

Tuition for Aubrey Dor - GCSE Englit/EngLang support

Michelle gave Aubrey very good support and was able to asses and understand what he required in both subjects. Her work with him undoutably both improved the areas he was interested in and the areas where he needed academic support. Michielle organised the work needed and emiled and called us regularly to keep us informed of Aubreys progress. The tuition both improved the grades he got for his GCSEs and has increased his interest in the supjects, particularly English Literature. We would both recomend Michelle as a tutor to others and would be very pleased, if needed, to ask her to provide further tuition in the future.

Outstanding tuition

From the very first time that Michelle came to tutor my 16 year old daughter (T) for her English GCSE, I felt in completely safe hands and T felt more confident and happy about the looming monster of GCSEs. T saw Michelle about 10 times. They worked on essay structure, exam technique, improving grammar and comprehension, past papers and overall exam confidence ( with a bit of literary debate thrown in for good measure!). Even though T was often quite unwell at the time, she positively looked forward to seeing Michelle who gave her both the confidence and inspiration to overcome past difficulties and to do much better than feared or expected. Both in terms of personality and knowledge, Michelle is an outstandingly good tutor and I would recommend her unreservedly.
