I am a highly qualified English teacher and I have taught at a prestigious grammar school for the past decade.
My students have all made excellent progress and they have fulfilled their potential in both English language and literature exams.
I tailor my lessons to suit the individual needs of each student. Lessons are dynamic and interactive and the focus is on fostering an enjoyment of the subject combined with meeting the examination criteria.
I am familiar with all exam boards (including AQA and Edexcel) and have years of experience as an exam marker.
After discussing the individual needs of my students, I outline a plan to deliver the course to maximise the outcomes for each pupil-whether this involves working towards passing GCSEs or simply developing confidence as a proficient speaker, writer and reader.

We have a total of
review(s) for Philomena.
My son is really enjoying his English lessons and always leaves the sessions really enthused.
We are really pleased that we were connected to Phil through this website. She is very quick to identify issues and my son feels more confident with the subject working with her.
Excellent tutor, very flexible.
Not a very reliable tutor.
Philomena has been a thorough, reliable, patient and effective tutor for my daughter who has dyslexia and managed to achieve a 7 in her English GCSE, which we are all incredibly happy with.
Just started working with my Son on his final year GCSE English and already very pleased. He enjoys the sessions, "gets" what he is being taught and more confident for his school lessons.
I have been so pleased with the tutoring and support Philomena has provided for my daughter Martha for her English GCSE. Martha has found Philomena `engaging, enthusiastic and patient`. Overall the help Martha has received has boosted her confidence as she enters into her exams.
No complaints from any of us, hopefully we will see the benefits from the exam results.
Philomena has been tutoring our daughter for several months, and we have been really delighted with her teaching, professionalism and support. Our daughter is very happy with the set up, and we can see the progress she is making. Philomena is punctual, highly organised and communicates with us fully. I recommend her fully and without hesitation.
Never commenced with lessons, reasons unknown, rather confused, however she did offer to refund the fees I paid tutor hunt, which I declined, also sent her documents related to my learning, hope she deleted them as instructed (since they were personal and only sent to her to prepare lessons).
Philomena has been reliable, flexible, charming and effective as a tutor for my daughter, so much so that we now have her on a weekly basis having initially thought we would have just a few sessions.
I highly recommend Philomena!
