Information about Coco

I have an overall strong academic background gaining 7A* and 4A at GCSE Level with a particular passion for the Arts and Humanities subjects.

From 2009-2012 I studied English Literature at Bristol University, graduating with 2:1 BA Hons.

This degree enabled me to pursue my interest in literary ideas and explore different forms of storytelling.

I have studied texts (poetry, plays and novels) demonstrating the development of English Literature from the Middle Ages to Contemporary Times and I have developed my interpretive and analytical skills. The essays written during my study allowed me to refine my skills in written communication enhancing the ability to articulate ideas and express arguments in a clear and logical manner.

In teaching, I am enthusiastic, confident, supportive, communicative and articulate and seek to make learning engaging and fun.

I have specifically taught a range of ages and levels including: Primary, 11+ Exam, KS2 SATS, KS3 and KS4 GCSE & A Level across many subjects including English Literature, English Language, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

I have also taught from past papers of schools such as Dulwich Prep and Dulwich College, St Paul’s, HABS and Godolphin & Latymer.

Coco is a wonderful Tutor. Our son was preparing for his upper school examinations and was struggling. His confidence was low, and he needed help across all aspects of the curriculum. Coco quickly identified his strengths, built his confidence, and worked smartly and effectively to alleviate his weaknesses. With Coco`s support (and a lot of his hard work), he was able to pass his upper school exams, build a huge amount of confidence, and as parents, we can breathe again!

Coco built a good relationship with my son. She ran four morning sessions with him and he genuinely seemed to enjoy them. Coco covered what was asked across both English and Maths which did directly increased my sons confidence in these areas.

Coco is a very patient English tutor who encourages the child to think on their own. She is polite and well prepared for the lesson. She did a fabulous job preparing my daughter for 11+ exams

Coco is a fantastic tutor. She is engaging and fun, with such a warm and wonderful manner. My 6 year old son very much looks forward to his sessions with Coco every week. He is always energised and leaves the sessions full of confidence and comments on how much fun he`s had with Coco. These wonderful sessions have really boosted my son`s confidence at school where he has made significant improvements in Maths and English. Coco`s objective is to prepare my son for the 8 plus exams and she is doing a grand job. We are very lucky to have Coco as a tutor.

My daughter is doing English Literature for her AL`s (AQA exam board) and will be sitting her exam in May/June 2022. Coco has been tutoring my daughter for the past 3 months and over that time period Coco has covered AL English Literature across poetry, Shakespeare and prose. Coco is well prepared before any lessons and use the time effectively. Coco maintain very effective communication with my daughter and myself and I receive a feedback about my daughter`s lessons including areas that she needs improvement on a weekly basis. As the lessons are focussed on her AL`s, Coco is good at providing exam tips, especially the ways to prepare and areas to focus when someone is faced with a exam question. Since the commencement of lessons with Coco, my daughter has developed a better interest in Eng Lit and more focussed when answering a question. Based on my experience, I can certainly recommend Coco for any student/parent looking for some additional help for Eng Lit. Dilum

I contacted Coco a few weeks before my daughter`s eleven plus independent school exams. Even though it was short notice, Coco was willing to accommodate her. She was extremely organised and and used the limited time we had to focus on any areas my daughter found problematic. She was kind, enthusiastic and helped boost my daughter`s confidence. Furthermore, she gave my daughter invaluable advice on how to build her stamina so she could remain focused for the duration of the tests (VR/NVR/English/Math) which schools normally expect candidates to take in one sitting. Coco`s positive attitude and encouragement resulted in my daughter being offered a place in our first choice school. Coco, my daughter couldn`t have done it with you. Thank you!

Coco made an instant connection with my daughter. She quickly picked up on areas that my daughter was weaker on and had a plan to address those. She is super organised, and sends any work straight away so that we have the whole week to tackle it. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and is as a consequence working harder in between times. Also, when my daughter is not quite as focussed, Coco is really good at bringing her back into the lesson and not letting her slack - something I really struggle with!

Coco is helping my daughter with her English GCSE and she is enjoying the subject so much more. Coco seems extremely well organised and according to my daughter, great fun to work with , I wish we had come across her much earlier.

Coco is very helpful and gives insight into my son’s learning. She is good with identifying his strengths and weaknesses and develops his confidence to undertake a task he may not be so confident with. Coco listens to any concerns and gives thorough feedback at every tuition. I highly recommend her.

A brilliant tutor (as described by my son). Coco is one of the nicest tutors my son had. Coco takes time to explain everything thoroughly and keeps me updated about my son`s progress. Coco always comes across as a caring and friendly teacher who knows how to motivate my son and get through challenging tasks. 100% recommend.

Coco has been preparing my son for the 11+ for the last few weeks. We started looking at grammar schools at the last minute so her guidance has been invaluable. She is really enthusiastic and has really encouraged my son through this process. I am also really thankful that she looks at my child as an individual and thinks about what is best for him rather than simply drilling him for the test. Would definitely recommend!

Coco is an amazing tutor. She has been tutoring my child for about 2 months now and I have been super mpressed by the progress my child has made so far. In a very short amount of time, she pinpointed exactly what areas my child needs most help with and has focused on that using a varietyof teaching methods and materials. As a result, my child`s confidence in the subject has grown immensely over the last couple of months. She is also very professional, flexible and super organised. Thank you Coco

My daughter struck an instant rapport with Coco. She has experience of tutoring children for the schools we are looking at for 11+ and gives my daughter confidence in maths and English with her approach in these subjects.

Coco is great! She is helping my daughter with English and Math and seems to know how to keep a 11-year-old focused after a long day at school. She structures the lessons really well, so that it is easy to follow the learning plan, and is very flexible with accommodating changes in schedule and subjects.
