Information about Luci

Highly experienced former English teacher (PGCE) and private tutor offering individual support with assessments and exam preparation for English Language and English Literature. Friendly and relaxed lessons which build confidence. Main examination boards covered.

Using past papers or homework tasks we work together to develop:
- academic or creative writing styles
- explanations and analysis for GCSE and A` Level
- examination techniques

Lessons are individually tailored to you using past papers, assessment criteria, discussion, practice and even a little humour.

“I would, without hesitation, recommend Luci, and indeed have already done so to friends. This is because of her approach, her flexibility and understanding, and the impact she`s had.

Luci is very kind, friendly and encouraging, which has been very important for my daughter in this really tricky year; her confidence in English has grown hugely as a result. Luci is also very focused and completely up-to-speed with the curriculum and GCSE exams. She understands how to teach the sub-topics in a way that both engages her pupils but also equips them with the skills to think through and answer questions. My daughter`s English teacher has commented on her really improved exam technique, which has come from her time with Luci.

Lastly, Luci has been flexible at times when we have requested more sessions, on the odd occasion where we`ve needed to change the scheduled times, or indeed in response to my daughter`s last-minute requests to cover specific sub-topics, which has been a big help.” (KM, 2021)

`... my daughter, for particular reasons, hadn’t achieved the GCSE mock grades that we were anticipating. We knew she had the capability to achieve much higher. In less than a term working with Luci, her level in English Language jumped at least 2 grades and I’m assured that she would have achieved so much more if the current national health crisis had not curtailed her sessions prematurely.` (Mrs Clarke, Ipswich April, 2020)

Luci has been a fantastic tutor for my son: he has really enjoyed his sessions with her and has found the feedback he`s received on his work invaluable as he prepares for his GCSE replacement assessments. I just wish we had found Luci earlier.

Luci has been tutoring my daughter for a few sessions now and my daughter finds her so accessible, friendly, professional and supportive. We, like so many Year 13s at the moment, are keen to gain the grades for her top choice of Uni; I am very hopeful that this is more of a reality than originally expected. Highly recommend Luci!

Luci is proving to be an excellent Tutor for my daughter who is studying towards English GCSE, she has engaged with us from the beginning to find out where help and improvement is needed & is always well prepared, my daughter is slowly gaining confidence

Luci is a wonderful tutor. She is passionate and her passion is infectious. My son is having to re-sit his GCSE English Language and he has improved vastly in such a short period of time already. My son struggles to be creative and spontaneous when writing which has had a negative impact on his self confidence. Since working with Luci his self-confidence has come on leaps and bounds and we’re hoping for a grade 7-8 as a result. We highly recommend Luci as an English tutor.

Luci is an excellent tutor. My daughter was looking for extra support with the explanation/analysis for GCSE and examination techniques. After just the first couple of lessons it was clear that this was just the type of support she needed. Luci`s lessons are well structured and tailored to my daughter`s needs and above all, enjoyable. I am confident that with her input, my daughter has a good chance of achieving a top grade which she is aiming for in her favorite subject.
