Information about Eliza
I am a fully qualified teacher with 20 years of experience teaching English at KS3, 4 and 5 level, both in the state and independent sector. I am also a mother of three children who are now all grown up and on their way to `bigger` things, but I understand the concerns parents may have about the progress of their children. At school, in a class of 15 to 30, it is very difficult for the teacher to give each pupil the individual attention they need and deserve. This is what I enjoy about tutoring: it is 100% child focused.
I offer tutoring on a one-to-one basis at your home or in the small classroom I have at my own house. Online lessons are also available and are organised through Skype and Google Classroom.
I specialise in tutoring for the 11+ entrance exams as well as specific English tuition up to GCSE level.
With regards to the 11+ preparation, I cover all areas: Maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning.
Tutoring allows me to personalise all the planning and teaching to the needs of the young people I am working with. After an initial assessment, I can identify where the areas of strength and areas of development lie. I then tailor the lessons precisely to the needs of the pupil. By working on the areas of development, it is very clear to see where there is progress and parents will be informed and kept up to date.
My approach is friendly and pupils do not feel `stressed` in my presence. Parents often comment that their children enjoy the lessons and I ensure that my pupils receive plenty of praise so they really feel a sense of achievement.
Availability: In light of social distancing during the Corona virus pandemic, I offer online tutoring using Skype and Google Classroom. These lessons are equally effective and designed to be engaging and interactive.
One-to-one tutoring at £50 per hour.
Small group tutoring available at a reduced price: find and bring along a study buddy to a one hour session for £35 per person.
Please get in touch to enquire about school holiday availability.
How does it all work?
We set up an initial meeting in person or by telephone to discuss your requirements and go through any questions we have.
Once tutoring starts, you will be kept informed as the personalised plan for your child is shared with you, as well as any evaluations and feedback on progress.
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I am a fully qualified teacher with 20 years of experience teaching English at KS3, 4 and 5 level, both in the state and independent sector.
Experience in teaching and marking various exam boards, including IGCSEs.
I have a proven track record of enabling pupils to achieve outstanding results, exceeding their predicted potential.I have achieved success as a Head of Department and also as a Director of Teaching and Learning, when I empowered other teachers to be successful classroom practitioners.
I am also an English GCSE exam marker for one of the main exam boards and as such have an in-depth understanding of how marks are awarded and what is needed to be successful.
I have gained experience in administering the 11+ entrance exams in the independent school I worked at, as well as marking the papers.
In short, I have years of successful teaching and tutoring experience.
Feedback For Eliza (8)
Eliza is very professional and just after only a few sessions I can definitely see the improvements my daughter is making.
My son is studying for English GCSE and felt he could really improve with a bit of extra help. He is really happy with Eliza. She gives very practical and effective advice, in particular on exam technique and what the questions are really after. He applied this very successfully in his recent mocks. He appreciates how the lessons are tailored to where he wants help and how she often lets him guide the lessons.
Eliza is very knowledgeable and organised and has been very helpful.
Professional and well organised. My son`s English has improved a lot!
