Information about Melanie

KS2-3, GCSE,and A-Level tutoring by Oxford graduate, secondary school teacher rated OUTSTANDING. FREE initial assessment. Progress is guaranteed: ask for my previous results and references. All certificates supplied: CRB, Oxford, PGCE. Very reliable, excellent communication.

If your child is currently in year 11, 12 or 13, or about to take Common Entrance or Entrance Exams, last minute English revision can make a huge difference. Do not believe the myth that `you can`t revise English`!
I can work on exam technique that will benefit all subjects, work out a revision timetable and technique, and supervise your child during the day time if they have study leave, providing support and encouragement to motivate them during this critical period.

Areas covered: Entrance Exam and Common Entrance preparation, KS2 and KS3, intensive GCSE, AS and A-Level Literature, and General Study Programmes for sixth formers and University students in all subjects, with essay and exam technique, time management, organization skills and motivational support. Ask about preparation and planning for Oxbridge applications from any age. Progress is guaranteed.
