Information about Siobhan

ONLINE LESSONS VIA SKYPE (preferably) at the rate on this site! I have a professionally set up study room which pupils can come to but due to extra costs incurred by face -to-face lessons, there is a 15% surcharge plus photocopying on the prices on this site. I do not travel out. I am happy to and do take pupils from all over the UK and worldwide.

Fully insured, first aid qualified and enhanced CRB checked private tutor, also a qualified counsellor.

I cover most subjects from Year 1 to A Level and specialise in 11 plus, Functional Skills for adults, and up to GSCE tuition. This is for schools and syllabuses all over the UK and further afield. A levels too, in some subjects as I write academically English and History courses among other things!

******************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE (and many tutors seem not to know this) that many schools (includIng Wirral from the 2016 intake) are changing to CEM style tests to try and `fox` tutors.

Well it doesn`t fox me, for a start I took CEM myself and scored 99% when I was 11 and have been showing people this stuff ever since (including all my cousins hehe) and secondly, CEM is great as it discourages tutors who insist on programming their pupils like robots, and this is something I think is very wrong to do.

If you have ANY questions about the CEM format, message me!

Plus as there are now four skills to cover (see below) anyone wanting tuition now for the CEM exams will need to commit to TWO HOURS MINIMUM per week if pupils start lessons for it in Year 5 as there are now four subjects to cover, almost none of which is covered in schools till well after the 11+ and sometimes not even by the end of Year 6.

The CEM is FOUR possible topics:
Maths to a level 5A (in old money as it were)including algebra, area of circles, volume of complex shapes, complex fractions, decimals, percents, ratios and averages that are typical of the old level 6 booster tests done in SATs at the end of Year 6.
English multiple choice comprehension to level 5A/6 standard of vocabulary knowledge and often involving pre 20th century texts such as Dickens.
Verbal Reasoning (40 possible types)
Non Verbal Reasoning (up to 30 possible types)

There will always be some of EACH of the four topics on the exam.

The CEM providers (Durham University) do NOT release past papers only sample papers so all possible topics have to be covered as schools will not be informing parents which styles of papers they will use (there are four possible slants/exam paper types covering part of the topics above, of which they will use two.)

******************************************************************

Armed Forces and Nursing entrance exams are also a specialism of mine. 100% pass rating in this area.

Key Stages 1-3 I cover English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, French, Spanish

GCSE and A/S Levels: English, Chemistry, History, Geography, Psychology, French, Spanish, Classical Civilisations, all to Higher Level and Maths (Foundation),

A levels: English, French, Spanish, History, Classical Civilisations.

I offer Elocution and Voice (singing) (I am LAMDA trained) and Calligraphy too.

I do 1-2-1 online only so you will need Skype and a working email contact :) and I offer a tailored programme of lessons tailored to fit the pupil. My approach is friendly but no-nonsense and a little unconventional, and I am very well acquainted with all the syllabuses.

I also have a lot of experience teaching (especially English and Elocution-speaking correctly- but also all in most other subjects) for pupils (child and adult) for whom English is not their first language.



Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!

IF YOU can`t take any of the available times and WISH TO BE PUT ON THE WAITING LIST, PLEASE MESSAGE ME!

Please note:

That slots usually fill up fast so I try and update this page every 48 hours when new availability comes up, if it`s not been updated for a while it means I have no new slots.

Because of the high demand I can only hold a provisional slot given in inbox for a maximum of 48 hours from first contact-sometimes less if I get a lot of queries that want to start from their first contact. Same goes for anyone who has the free trial then doesn`t get back to me.

That first contact for ONLINE LESSONS or STUDY ROOM LESSONS (15% surcharge) needs to include (if you can)
subjects needed,
times you have available and
exam board where applicable.
I want to be fair to everyone who enquires, but I keep getting some as yet unconfirmed clients asking for some of these times, so I arrange it, then they don`t get back to me. However I do give priority to those who come to me via recommendation and to those who contact me first/need lessons urgently!

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Tutor since 1991 with a 95% pass rate across all the subjects (97% at 11+) and over 900 pupils across the wide range of subjects shown above. I have worked in the Youth Service, a primary and a secondary school all in deprived areas and am aware of all the issues that can affect learning that are not just academic. I am also a qualified child and LGBT counsellor, with a Dip. Pysth. qualification; ex youth worker and an Associated Member of the Dyslexia Guild.

My `day` job: For over ten years now I have been writing top quality online exam/revision/course guides and I formulate entire courses (including exams and text books) for well established UK, Europe and US based school/college syndicates but across all exam boards for:
*from KS1-3 (6 to 14 year olds) in Key/Functional Skills, as well as adult learners.

*from Level 1- GCSE in Literacy and Numeracy for adult learners.
I oversee and run the Functional Skills Literacy and Numeracy courses up to Level 3 course for all of England and I am Administrational Lead for the North West region- so not only did I write the course material, I also created the official text books for the Edexcel and OCR examination boards in Literacy and Numeracy.

*for Geography, Chemistry, Maths and Psychology exams at GCSE.

*and English, French, Spanish, Classics and History exams for GCSE- A2 level.


I am in the process of compiling a Doctorate (PhD) in Education based on the methods I have developed over the past 20+ years at The University of Liverpool.
