I am a qualified, approachable and professional tutor with thirteen years teaching experience. I am friendly, patient and I believe in building a student`s confidence to help them achieve their potential.
I mark the GCSE and A level Chemistry for two examination boards and I lead a team of examiners for one board.
Here are some testimonials from recent students (they are happy to be contacted if you wish to speak to them further):
Ellie has been a fantastic tutor for me! She has always been available, very patient and friendly and has really helped me to get a grasp on A level Chemistry studies, and has helped me achieve the grades i`ve needed as well as improving my confidence for the subject! Ellie has always been very supportive and has a brilliant way of breaking down the most complex aspects of the subject into manageable sections. She`s a lovely person, very intelligent and has a genuine enthusiam for chemistry and is always there for you and ready to help! I couldn`t have done it without her! I`d recommend her to anyone! Hannah
Ellie is an absolutely excellent tutor in every respect. She is very patient, totally reliable, inspires confidence and is extremely knowledgeable. She is very good at making really complex subjects easy to understand, so much so that I am now planning to continue my chemistry A level studies. I would not hesitate to ask for her assistance again and already plan to see her again in October. She is very approachable and immediately puts you at ease. I could not have wished for a better tutor. Emma
I have now been taught by Ellie within the school environment and through tutoring. She is a lovely kind hearted person who knows the ins and outs of all exams. With plenty of resources, experience and help to give you, I would go as far as saying Ellie is one of the best teachers I have had. Ellie is 100% dedicated and will help you strive to achieve your goals, whatever they may be. I highly recommend Ellie to anyone looking for a tutor. Sophie
Dear Ellie - we`ve just got the results and he achieved his A. We cannot thank you enough for what you have done for him. Ravi
Hi Ellie, just to let you know I got an A overall in Chemistry and would like to thank you for helping me achieve it. There is no way I could have got that without you. I am looking forward to taking my gap year and applying for Medicine next year. Simran
Ellie really helps you understand the course content and answers all the questions you have. She provides you with so much help in the way of past papers and detailed specifications. Ellie is also really good when it comes to fitting more lessons in near exam time. This was really helpful and she was very reassuring for my exams. Alice
After a rough year 12 we sought Chemistry tuition. After one lesson with Ellie it is lovely to see the glimpse of positivity back in our son. Adrian
Ellie could always find a way to explain so that the topic could be understood and easy to grasp. And she was always able to answer my questions (and I had a lot of questions!) Amy
I really can`t recommend Ellie highly enough - she has transformed Y10 GCSE Core Science for our 15 year old son. Luckily for us, Ellie is available to tutor our son through Y11, too, and we are so relieved about this and he is very happy, too. Thanks Ellie. Jess
Hi Ellie, I just wanted to let you know he has secured a place at Medical School. You were instrumental in his journey. The Sembis
Ellie is a very professional tutor whose lessons bring the learning experience outside the classroom, tailored to her students needs. She is an amazing teacher with great empathy and patience for her students. Her unique and innovative teaching methods have tremendously helped our daughter achieve exceptional results in her mocks. Ellie has no doubt proven to be a vital resource to our daughters GCSE Chemistry. Were so glad to have found her. Nabeel
Ellie has been absolutely invaluable to my daughters GCSE Chemistry and in Lucy`s words "It was like someone had switched the light on". Now instead of being scared of Chemistry she wants to do it at A Level as she knows with Ellie by her side she can achieve the results she needs. I actually wish Ellie did more subjects and we`d have her for so much more! I doubt I could give higher praise for a tutor! Amanda
Ellie is an exceptional tutor and has boosted by daughters confidence significantly in all sciences. She is fully committed, always making time do us and ensures that my daughter understands everything before moving on. Ellie has been tutoring my daughter Kerina, only for a short period of time however I have noticed that my daughter has significantly improved in chemistry, biology and physics and feels a lot more confident towards her upcoming GCSE`s because she has had the help and support from Ellie. She goes through each topic in detail and makes sure that Kerina understands everything before moving on to the next topic, she is very committed and nothing is too much trouble for her. Thank you for everything Ellie! Punita
Exceptional tutor! Real progress evident due to Ellie`s superb knowledge, ideal pace of lessons, meticulous planning and detailed feedback with additional homework activities set. My daughter was reticent about having a tutor but has now achieved really well in her mocks - and has always thoroughly enjoyed her sessions with Ellie - she really builds confidence and motivates! Sarah
If you need an excellent Science tutor, look no further than Ellie. I can`t recommend her highly enough - Josh has come on leaps and bounds and already passed Core Science GCSE thanks to Ellie. Ms Moss
Ellie has tutored my son for his GCSE examinations and this academic year, for his AS exams in Chemistry. Ellie`s tuition has been outstanding and she has helped him to achieve incredible results, but more importantly she has fostered a love of the subject and encouraged him to believe in himself. I can`t recommend her highly enough!! Helen
Ellie is really a fantastic teacher. Her teaching is amazing excellent. Its been 7 months now my daughter started class with Ellie, its a great pleasure to say that my daughter really enjoys her class. She is so motivated to go the class. And my daughter has moved up to the top scorer in Chemistry and Biology, I would definitely say after joining Ellie. Thank you Ellie for your help. Manjula
