Information about Lucy
I offer tuition for English from Primary level to GCSE. I also offer tuition for the grammar entrance tests. I have a degree in History & Politics from Cardiff University and two school age children, one primary and one at college so understand the pressures and the difficulty in finding time to support your child`s learning.
I have been tutoring since 2014, successfully helping children gain places at grammar school and get the grades they need in Gcse English Language and Literature.
Availability: Days, evenings and weekends
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have been tutoring for since 2014 and have close links to both schools that my children attend and support my children with home learning every day. I have knowledge of the current curriculum and access to many past test papers. I believe strongly in engaging the student with their subject to enhance their understanding of the world and giving them the confidence to know what it is they are being asked in an exam environment. Once this confidence is established then knowledge can grow on these firm foundations. I am very skilled in exam procedure and teaching exactly what is being sought in exam questions.
I am currently tutoring pupils in Year 1,Year 4,Year 6,Year 8 and Year 10 English. I can also offer Primary Mathematics. My tutoring style is very flexible and I tailor each session to an individual`s unique needs. I like to use a mixture of past papers, reading comprehension, grammar exercises and fun word quizzes in my current sessions. I also aim to assist whatever the student is currently studying in school.
I have experience of tutoring pupils where English is not the first language and also with Aspergers.
Feedback For Lucy (2)
Lucy was just what we needed to give our son some extra tuition before a GCSE exam. She started at short notice, was totally flexible and a great hit. His confidence has been boosted and Lucy ironed out the bits required, set him homework and generally inspired him.
A big thank you.
Tutors Response :
Thank you for your wonderful feedback. I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with your son who is a very hard-working and bright young man. I wish him every success in the future.
We are very impressed with the tutoring our son is receiving from Lucy. She is engaging, prepared for any eventuality, calming and has a brilliant natural way with our son.
Our Son has shown great progress since Lucy started tutoring him only several months ago. Its the best thing we could have done. We would categorically recommend Lucy for your tutoring needs.
Lucy tutored my 16 year old in Gcse English language and literature . She was patient and easy to talk to. Providing structure and Helping him with exam technique as the tests approached . I have no doubt in recommending Lucy .
Unfortunately after buying details she was unable to tutor therefore never got a lesson with her
Tutors Response :
Thanks for your feedback. I did explain at the time that if you contacted Tutor Hunt they would set you up with another tutor as you had already paid. This was some time ago so don`t understand why the negative feedback now. Also I recall that you were very inflexible over when I could assess you and kept saying you were busy.
