Frequently Asked Questions
I am a full-time, professional and generalist tutor. This means that I have experience of tutoring a wide variety of subjects at 11+, 13+, (i)GCSE, Pre-U and A Level. My main subjects are English (Language and Literature), Geography and RS. I also manage a small, world-class network of tutors across all subject areas, consisting of Ox-bridge/Russell-group graduates and qualified teachers who are vetted and reliable.
Therefore, I provide tuition across all subject areas from 11+ to A Level standard.
Although I live in Bristol, UK, I am an online tutor. I use the best technologies available to teach students from across the world! I have taught students from the UK, Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Singapore and the USA.
There are two basic components that are needed for a good lesson: an audio/video connection and an online whiteboard.
I use Skype for the audio/video call, unless the student has a preferred service (such as Zoom or FaceTime). Skype is easy to use and free to set up.
I then send a link to an online whiteboard, which is a shared screen that both the student and I work on simultaneously. They are free and easy to use.
Yes, I have tutored UK school entrance for over 5 years. This has included successfully preparing students for competitive scholarship exams at 11+, 13+ and 16+.
I am passionate about the use of online tutoring to share knowledge, and my students love it, too. The benefits are countless, but include:
- Greater flexibility of time and place
- Lessons are engaging and up-to-date
- Notes are always organised and easily accessibility for future revision
I have worked with students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and autism, and welcome students presenting with SEN. Online tutoring and the technologies/software I use help me to provide good solutions and learning experiences for students with SEN.
I really do understand how important it is to find the right tutor who is suitably experienced to help your child. Please get in touch and we will arrange a time to discuss your child’s needs and whether or not I can help. If I am unable to help, I can connect you with professional tutors who may meet your needs.
Yes, I welcome nervous students! Online tutoring often suits nervous students especially well because of the flexibility it allows, including the ability to work in their own space. I also strive to be a friendly professional tutor (think Mary Poppins, tutor style!), with lots of patience and an understanding approach to how different people learn and communicate.
