Information about Danwantee

I am bilingual in English/French and a graduate of French/Education from Roehampton University. I tutor French(KS1, KS2, KS3 KS4 and GCSE), English (KS1-KS4) and Maths(KS1-KS4 and GCSE. 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 assess all my tutees in the first lesson to benchmark their standards (diagnostic assessment). 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.

Younger students often need lots of encouragement and help to achieve some early successes in the subject which leads to increased motivation and means students tend to believe more in themselves in the subject, trying harder than they would otherwise do to solve problems.

For other, advanced students who have been doing well but want to `guarantee` their target grade it`s more often just concise explanations of whatever key ideas have not been clear till now and coaching on giving good exam answers that are needed. Ultimately, really concentrating on working past exam papers.

Therefore, practising mostly exam papers for the students willing to improve their grades would make them confident and ready for the exam itself . I have lots of resources handy to maximise learning and help learners attain their target grade. Consequently, with my help and their dedication to learning I hope to help students get the grades they should be proud of.

I have extensive experience in tutoring children sitting for their eleven plus exam. I also use selective eligiblity test papers to prepare tutees. I had one student who I prepared only in 6 months of practice in Verbal Reasoning and Maths and she passed and got a place in a one of the Grammar school in Wallington.

I also prepared children for Entrance in Reigate Grammar and they were all successful.

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 5 miles.

Availability: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday,

After School

Willing to travel: 5 miles

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

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.
