Information about Eloise

I am an AQA English Examiner for the 9-1 GCSEs and I have taught English for many years in the UK and international private education sector. Before my current role, I spent 6 years at two top independent boarding schools; with 3 years as Head of EAL (English as an Additional Language). I am also a qualified Librarian. Since September 2019, I have been working as an Education Consultant and online tutor for a school in Beijing, but have continued one-to-one English tutoring as well as examining for AQA.

I believe in a collaborative approach to learning and tailor my lessons to the student`s individual learning targets and needs. It is important that the student feels comfortable and able to express their ideas and opinions. I hope that I encourage open and honest discussion about the topics, techniques and areas for improvement. I use a wide variety of engaging resource material and adapt and reflect on my approach as the lessons progress.

Availability: Lessons are £34 per hour payable by bank transfer or currently through the online booking system.

Experience: As an English Language specialist, my teaching experience has focussed on individual 1:1 tuition and small group exam courses. I tutor students aged 11-16 in English Language and Literature, in preparation for their GCSEs and the 13+ Common Entrance English Examination. My CE 13+ students have accepted places at schools including: Downe House, Magdalen College School, Oxford High School, Abingdon, St Helen and St Katherine and Cheltenham College. I also teach the Cambridge English Exams (PET, KET, FCE, CAE, CPE) and IELTS (International English Language Tests) for 16+ university and visa requirements. My students` average IELTS Bands 6.5-9.

I am an AQA English Examiner for the 9-1 GCSEs, which means that I have a full understanding of curriculum requirements and how to maximise marks for the final examinations. I also have a working knowledge of the EdExcel GCSE English syllabus. In addition to subject knowledge, I can coach a student on exam techniques. My students` average GCSE grades 6-9, regularly achieving above their original target levels. This includes students whose first language is not English and those with a learning skills diagnosis.

As well as a BA(Hons) in English, I am a fully qualified Librarian with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Library and Information Studies and 5 years experience as a Teacher Librarian. This not only enhances my understanding of literature but also enables me to improve a student`s reading and research skills. This includes reading to improve vocabulary, awareness of grammatical structures and literary devices. Whilst independent research skills are necessary for essays, extended projects, quotations and referencing.

Excellent English tutor.

Clare (Mrs)

TutorHunt requests feedback after just 3-4 weeks of being introduced to a tutor.
We are very grateful we`ve found Eloise. She has quickly assessed my daughter`s requirements, plans her sessions and it`s apparent that she is very familiar with current GCSE content and how the subject is marked and examined. My daughter has felt that each session to date has been of considerable value; she feels Eloise will play a large and fundamental role in helping her prepare for GCSE English in 6 months` time.

Eloise was fabulous!
We contacted her very late in the day before my sons GCSE English literature exams!
She was helpful, calm and invaluable in her advice and tuition.
My son loved her manner and teaching style.
An absolute delight to work with.
We shall definitely be hoping to use her services again with my son in his A levels and my daughter with her GCSE’s.
Many thanks Eloise

Eloise is warm, intelligent and well informed. After her first session, my 15 yr old daughter said “ I think this will be good”. She was right! We recommend
Eloise wholeheartedly.
