I am a fully qualified, `Outstanding` teacher of English. After working as a classroom teacher for four years, I chose to take a new step in my career, and have been working as a full time private tutor since September 2016. I am enthusiastic, passionate about my subject, and committed to helping my students to achieve the best they possibly can. I have extensive training and experience in teaching English at Key Stage 3, GCSE and A-Level, and I have a thorough knowledge of all major exam boards and specifications.
I have a broad range of experience working with students with a range of needs and abilities, including students with English as an additional language, students with special educational needs, and gifted and talented students.
My experience as a classroom teacher has provided me with invaluable skills for unlocking students` potential and helping them to achieve their goals, whether this be improving their confidence, their grades, or their enjoyment of the subject. I am kind, patient and motivational, and above all, I absolutely love teaching my subject.
Availability: Weekdays, evenings and holidays.

review(s) for Sophie.
Great tutor. Our daughter is happy and we are pleased with her progress towards the GCSE exams. I highly recommend her.
Sophie is very organised, pleasant and pro active in teaching, My son James responds very well to her and although it`s only been a few weeks he seems more willing and able to do his English.
Sophie has been helping my son with his GCSE English and his essay writing technique. She is an excellent tutor. She has an up-to-date and in-depth knowledge of the curriculum and always comes to the sessions well prepared. Even in a short space of time she has helped to make a marked difference in my son`s writing.
