Information about Lauren

Hi! I`m Lauren, a University of Manchester graduate recently returned to the UK after teaching English as a second language in Tokyo, Japan (2016-2019)

In the past, I`ve worked as a private English tutor to primary aged children in the Manchester area, and I also planned and lead sessions in both primary and secondary schools with the Tutor Trust for two years.

I am happy to work with students from KS1 - KS4, and am currently available to provide sessions in person in your home, or online via Skype.

Tutoring is something that`s very important to me, as I love to help others learn and feel that a little extra help can sometimes be the difference between your child achieving their potential or not!

Thanks for reading, and I hope to hear from you soon! :)

Lauren has being working with my daughter for four months now. All her lessons are planned in detail. When she chooses the material for a lesson Lauren considers the interests and opinion of my daughter, therefore my child works with passion and joy. During a lesson she creates unforced and working atmosphere. My daughter says that she feels more confident at the school and faster finds solutions at the lessons there.
