Engaging, personalised tutoring

I am a recent Classics graduate from the University of Oxford. I have just moved back to London, having spent the year immediately after graduation living in Berlin.

Since returning, I have worked mostly with children of a primary school age, but also have previous experience with older students, predominantly in Classics, History and English. I am currently tutoring several children for 10 and 11+ entrances into top London schools. I believe that tutoring should bring something markedly different to classroom teaching, and therefore experiment widely with different methods of teaching each child, in order to make sessions as engaging and enthusing as possible. I currently focus primarily on English, but also teach Maths and Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning, using a variety of stimuli and resources to find the unique approach appropriate for each child.

The multidisciplinary nature of my Classics degree means I am able to swiftly adapt, and ably approach a wide range of subjects. When I am not tutoring, I work as an actor. My experience in this field feeds into my teaching, through my strong focus on communication, and an inherent love of imagination via both the written and spoken word.

11+ tutor

Dear Madam/Sit,
It is with genuine pleasure that I am writing this reference letter for Miss Phoebe Hames, who has been helping my daughter Emma preparing for her 11+ admission tests, on a twice weekly basis for the last two months.
Our daughter is a bright and very academic girl, yet I and my wife felt she might have benefit from some structured tutoring in preparation of her coming exams.
Phoebe has tailored the tutoring activity to Emma’s level of preparation, tuning in with my daughter very quickly and making their lessons pleasant and effective in covering areas where the child felt less sound.
Phoebe has also been very discrete and professional in her interactions with the rest of the family.
Emma has been doing great in her admissions tests at some of the most academic schools in London so far (St Paul’s, Alleyn’s …) and I am sure that in part this is due to Phoebe’s help in keeping her calm, confident and focused.
We would certainly recommend Phoebe as a tutor to anyone and we would contact her in the future should we need her assistance again.

Yours faithfully
