Information about Stephanie

I am a fully trained secondary teacher in History and English tutor with seven years of experience in education where I have been consistently graded at a `good/outstanding` level, holding positions in `Good` or `Outstanding` institutions. I hold both a first-class Masters Degree in American Studies (History & English) and an Upper Second Class Bachelors Degree in History with modules in English & American Literature. I have a wealth of teaching experience across all Key Stages as well at primary level across a range of units and literature texts. I have taught & tutored on Edexcel 9-1 GCSE History, AQA 9-1 GCSE English, AQA 9-1 GCSE History, Edexcel A Level History, OCR A Level History, and the Cambridge IGCSE in History & English.

I fully believe that each student is an individual with their own needs and learning styles that need to be taken into account to ensure that they can effectively progress. As such, each of my tutoring sessions are tailored to the individual student - their areas of strengths and weaknesses, and ensuring each weekly session adapts to those changing needs. My sessions with students are interactive, well-planned, and encourage discussion and the exploration of topics or concepts which allows them to grow more confident in their own knowledge, and to expand their thinking beyond just a formula. With all my students, I have a patient, humorous and understanding approach to create a safe environment where students can feel they are able to openly express the areas that they need help in but also where they can express their own ideas and theories about historical debate or literature, thereby developing their confidence in their own abilities as well as developing their exam skills.

Stephanie is an excellent tutor with a great knowledge of the exam curriculum. She naturally engages students in their subject, with interesting views and tapers her session around the exam and what the student needs. Very impressed

Stephanie has been tutoring my daughter for her English GCSE and in September will be continuing this, switching to history A level tuition. She has been an excellent tutor - reliable, patient and extremely enthusiastic.

Every week my daughter has loved going to her lessons and has grown in confidence and resilience.
