Information about Helen

I am a hardworking, dedicated and passionate qualified English teacher at Meadowhead School in Sheffield. What with the current state of schooling in the UK due to the coronavirus, I am offering my free time to students who are struggling with independent learning. I am well versed with the AQA exam boards and have taught and tutored A Level English, A Level Psychology AQA, and A Level Philosophy AQA since 2013. I am offering my qualified services to any pupil who would some professional input to their home school experience.

During the previous academic year I trained at The Silverdale School in Sheffield. I specialise in teaching exam technique but I am also well versed in teaching the course` specification too. I have been extremely successful over my 6 years of tutoring and have watched my pupils grow in confidence and have seen their grades improve even after a few lessons as their exam technique and understanding of the mark scheme develop.

I am extremely patient yet passionate about the subjects that I teach and I adore working with and building working relationships with students. I always try to make lessons enjoyable and try my best to simplify the more complex information that students often struggle to comprehend.

My previous students` positive feedback is available on my page.

Helen was brilliant. She has a lovely personality and immediately put our grandson at ease. She was quickly able to understand his strengths and weaknesses and how to devise an effective learning plan for him. Helen was not phased by time constraints and quickly focused on key elements for his GCSE English. His results far exceeded our expectations. Would have no hesitation in recommending Helen.

I would like to say how grateful I am to Helen for the help and support she has given my daughter over the last year. Although my daughter has chosen `A` level English and enjoys this subject, she has a mild form of dyslexia which has always not only effected her concentration but her confidence too. Helen has been wonderfully helpful, supportive and attentive throughout the last year and I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend her to any pupil who needs a little extra help for their understanding and enjoyment of this subject. She`s very professional - and lovely!

I contacted Helen because I needed help with Psychology and English both of which she helped me with immensely. A very hard working tutor who was willing to help me throughout my subjects making exams feel much more manageable.

I`m really happy that I took the decision to get tutored - I thought it was too late since my real GCSE exams were about only four weeks away.

In these four weeks, I had frequent lessons with Helen. She is a fantastic tutor, a very friendly person who is passionate about helping others.

She would contact me before our next lesson and ask what I needed help on and focus on those things specifically. Helen went the extra mile - She would use her personal time to try and support me with what I was struggling with. For instance, taking a look at my essays in her own time and providing detailed, excellent feedback.

She understands students a lot and motivates you frequently.

I would highly recommend Helen to everyone who needs support with English - Especially if you need a little bit of 1:1 or you`re feeling worried about exams.

Thanks Helen - I couldn`t ask for a better tutor.

Helen is a hard-working, responsible and warm-hearted tutor. She has been teaching us for about three months and she always arrive earlier than the beginning time for each session. She always asks our requirements and adjusts the teaching plan promptly. Besides, she often tries to use various ways to motivate our interests and passion for English and has good interaction with us make the learning process quite interesting. Overall we enjoy her tutorial so much that we`d like to have more sessions with her in the future.

I had sessions with Helen after a year out of education to prepare for my A-level English Literature Resit. Helen gave clear, specific and detailed advice tailored to my exam board, AQA, and I left each session feeling more confident and prepared for my exam. I felt that my exam went extremely well and this was in large part due to Helen`s help, she was an excellent tutor.
