Information about Robin

I have an excellent track record of working as a private tutor, primarily in English, although I can do other subjects if required. I`m experienced in tutoring for SATs, 11+, 13+, GCSE, A Level and Adult Literacy. I believe in tailoring lessons to an individual student`s needs. I have managed to raise the grades of all my previous students, as well as building their confidence and enhancing their enjoyment of English.

My rates for academic tutoring are £30 an hour if I tutor at the student`s home, and £27 if the student comes to me. Parents are welcome to accompany their children if they choose to come to me - there is free parking and the parents can wait in the house.

My style of tutoring is sympathetic and encouraging as I find this yields the best results. I often back up the lessons with books and other materials - I provide these myself and don`t ask parents to pay for them.

Some testimonials:
`They`ve progressed so much with your help` Karen
`Just wanted to say I passed the assessment... thanks so much for your help` Marina
`Thank you for tutoring me maths so well. I have recently got my SATs results and my results have been more amazing than I hoped for, thanks to your help` Hannah
`It`s because of you that I feel so much more confident about English` Kesh
`Thank you for the help you are giving to me` Aisha

I`m also an experienced drama teacher and can coach students of all ages in their audition pieces and other acting skills, such as accents (I`m a professional actress with a career in theatre, television and film). My rates for drama coaching are £20 an hour. Previous students have got jobs in the West End and on TV after I coached them with their audition scenes.

Availability: Very flexible. I prefer not to tutor at weekends (although sometimes this is possible), but I can do any time on weekdays. I understand that parents can`t always commit to lessons at the same time every week and I`m happy to be flexible. I can do daytime as well as after school hours, so am very happy to help with home-schooling.

Willing to travel: 2 miles

Experience: Qualified teacher - I have taught in schools and as a private tutor for thirty years.
As a tutor to children in entertainment, I have worked abroad, for the BBC and on the Harry Potter films.

I`m also a professional actress with a long career in theatre, film and television.
