Information about Danwantee

I am bilingual in English/French and a graduate of French/Education from Roehampton University. I tutor French(KS1, KS2, KS3 and GCSE), English (KS1-KS3) and Maths(KS1-KS3) and Maths GCSE foundation only. I tutor English and French to all levels from primary right through to adult learners.I know that learning a language at a late age without previous knowledge whatsoever is no easy task as I have myself been learning Italian and Spanish during and after my degree so I can empathise with adult learners and know how to plan my lessons in order that students maximise their learning with my help. I also know that the hardest skill to master is the speaking skill where I shall make learners practice so that they become confident in speaking French.
I am patient, organised, caring and above all dedicated to make my tutees progress and improve in their learning journey.
I assess all my tutees in the first lesson to establish their strength and also areas where they need help most. I then prepare material which allows to reinforce their knowledge and understanding in learning a difficult topic. I gradually strengthen their knowledge by giving them questions so that they have lots of practice and hence improve. Nearer the exam I make tutees practice past exam papers so that they are confident sitting for their exam.
I also have extensive experience in tutoring children sitting for their eleven plus exam. I also use selective eligibility test papers to prepare tutees. I prepare students for Wallington County Grammar, Sutton Grammar, Reigate Grammar, Dunnotar School
I prepare tutees for any Grammar school of your choice.

Finally, I shall tailor the lessons to the students needs and level so that there is increased confidence, gradual progress and eventually improvement.

I also tutor adult learner sitting for the A1, B1, B2,C1 and C2 for the visa for settlement or citizenship.

Cancellation: If you give at least 24 hours’ notice I will attempt to rearrange the lesson at a mutually convenient time. If less than 24 hours’ notice is given the cancelled lesson must be paid for.

I tutor at my home and I can travel up to 8 miles.

I believe that quality tutoring shouldn`t be costly. Therefore, I do not charge exorbitantly so that parents can afford extra help for their children.

I AM TUTORING FACE TO FACE AND ALSO ON LINE USING ZOOM ONLINE TEACHING PLATFORM.



Availability: Tuesday to Sunday

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: Been tutoring French, English, Maths and 11+ for more than 10 years.

I don`t think I spent enough time with Mrs Danwantee to judge her teaching skills, but she seemed very nice. I wanted help preparing for the French language test for citizenship. I arranged a lesson with Mrs Danwantee through TutorHunt, but she didn`t show up. She contacted me to apologise and offered a discounted lesson on Zoom. At this lesson she had prepared a past paper from the exam I wanted to take, which was great. I did the past paper during the lesson and she provided the correct answers, but I felt that she didn`t provide much explanation for the answers. Since I can access past papers and answers myself I didn`t continue the lessons.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for your feedback Isabel. I just want to point out that the first lesson was a diagnostic assessment and as such I wanted you to complete the whole task without a lot of interruption from me. This was to ascertain your proficiency in French that I believe was very good.

Danwantee is always well prepared and has a good range of materials.
She has been tutoring my son for Maths and they get along well as both really enjoy the subject. There is a good balance of challenge and encouragement in the sessions.
He has both enjoyed and benefited from the sessions.He even asked to continue despite having taken the exam he was preparing for!

Mrs Dawantee is currently tutoring my 11 year old daughter.

These are going well, she is very patient, well organised and has assisted my daughter with her Maths these last few weeks.

I feel that my daughter will benefit from her teaching methods and this will boost her confidence with maths.

We are extremely pleased with the outcome of Carlos`s lessons with Danwantee. Carlos had a course of about 10 lessons to improve his English in order to pass the B1 exam, which he passed last week! Danwantee was very patient in teaching Carlos and encouraging him to keep practising, as well as updating us weekly with his progress.
Thank you for all you have done Danwantee, we would happily recommend you to a friend.

Mrs Danwantee did an excellent job with my son. He was lacking in confidence with his French learning for GCSE but she managed to successfully turn this around by her manner of tutoring. We are now looking forward to him producing as good result at the end of this school year.

My daughter got on well and enjoyed her French tuition, and progressed. Appreciated the study books supplied. Travel expenses were a slight concern.
