Information about Leanne
My name is Leanne, I`m 38 and am a fully qualified English tutor.
I have a first class degree in English with Creative Writing from Falmouth University, an MA in English Literature from the University of Bristol, and a PGCE in Secondary English. I am able to tutor KS3, GCSE, A` Level, and degree level English students. I can also support adult learners.
I love nature, gardening and walking. I enjoy cooking, yoga and healthy living as much as good old tea and cake. I write songs and poetry and I love performing. I have various writing projects on the go - plays, essays, fiction and non-fiction.
I have just completed an MA in English Literature at the University of Bristol. I am now enjoying a new job at City of Bristol College as a Learning Assistant, supporting SEND students.
Availability: I am available most afternoons after 4 and I also work on Saturdays.
I only teach in Bristol as I do not drive, and I am unable to work from home. I can, however, meet in central Bristol for lessons, for example in a café or library.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: PGCE Secondary English
MA English Literature
BA (Hons) English with Creative Writing
I have tutored 15 students in literature, language, and creative writing. These have ranged from years 4 through to 13. I have also taught a range of adult learners, including GCSE resits and basic English skills. I can support undergraduates in a wide range of subjects, helping to plan essays, refine arguments, structure work, and research texts.
During my PGCE I boarded at an independent school which specialised in SEND teaching. I now support SEND students at City of Bristol College and I understand the diverse needs of SEND students. I pride myself on delivering personalised tutoring to a wide range of learners, and work holistically with students, their parents and carers, and their teachers.
As well as tutoring with specific objectives in mind, such as passing exams with desired grades, my aim is to nurture every student to increase confidence in their abilities and instill a lifelong enjoyment of English.
Feedback For Leanne (8)
My son had always been good at English, so we had a shock when he only achieved a 3 and 5 in his mock exams. We hired Leanne with 12 weeks to go before his GCSEs and she helped him in exam techniques and recall, and I am pleased to say he achieved 6 and 9 in his GCSEs. Leanne helped him in a different way to his teachers and helped him achieve what he was capable of.
Leanne is a wonderful tutor and always on time . My kids enjoy very much with her lessons and always look forward to her session. I highly recommend!
My 10 year old daughter has significantly improved in both comprehension answering and creative writing. In less than 6months she`s become a confident writer.

Leanne is a great tutor.She helped my son to get ready for a English GCSE.The tutoring she gave was a really good standard.Very helpfull and friendly.
Very good and positive feedback. Will recommend to anyone.
Leanne has been reliable, thoughtful and creative in her approach to working with my 13 year old son. She is very child centred and has taken the time to understand his particular strengths and challenges to motivate and encourage him with his English language and literature. She is able to keep him on track with humour and keep him focussed and help him to understand what is expected. He is feeling more confident and I am sure this will really help him with his GCSEs.
She is an excellent tutor, serious, reliable, hard working with a deep and broad knowledge of her subjects
