Information about Anna

I am an experienced teacher having taught English language and literature at an international secondary school for 5 years including being head of KS3 and teaching IGCSE, International Baccalaureate and IELTS. I have tutored for 6 years focusing on the new GCSE language and literature (AQA, EDEXCEL, EDUQAS) and KS3. I tutor some A-level courses/texts where the help needed is more with essay structure. I also tutor English as a foreign language and the adult GCSE equivalent. I have tutored and taught English and English as a foreign language for over 10 years including being an oral examiner for 2nd language igcse, IELTS and Cambridge FCE.

My strengths include a thorough knowledge of the subject, an enthusiasm for helping people reach their potential, clear communication and logical explanations, patience and a sense of humour. I specialise in: exam preparation including the new GCSE syllabus, helping teenagers structure, plan and develop analysis, essays and creative writing and improving confidence in literary analysis, and widening vocabulary. I tailor lessons to individual needs and create my own materials and example writing/answers.

In addition, I bring a knowledge of other languages to my lessons, as well as wide interests including science, current affairs, sport and psychology. I am fluent in Spanish and French and currently completing an MSc in developmental psychology.

It is important that students are prepared to complete homework assignments in order to see progress. Tutoring works best where there is a clear need for it and focus.

I also do online classes and marking at a reduced hourly rate.

I can do group lessons for a small extra charge per person.

I am happy to provide further references from parents.

I can currently teach in areas on convenient public transport/30 minutes` walk from Surbiton.

Availability: See current availability chart. I will have more availability from June.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have taught for 15 years including 5 years teaching English Language and Literature to IGCSE and IB levels at the British School of Costa Rica, 5 years as a tutor in London and 5 years teaching English as a foreign language. I have tutored English GCSE, IGCSE, A-level, KS3, IELTS, EFL from beginners to advanced to children and adults.

Anna tutored my son for just over a year for his English Language and Literature GCSEs. He is an able boy but more focussed on sciences and his expected English results had dropped in comparison to other subjects. Anna`s style was relaxed but diligent. My son responded really well and ended up with an 8 and a 9. I would certainly recommend Anna.

Maria (Mrs)

Anna is a very diligent, knowledgeable and came well prepared for the lessons. My son progressed from a B to A* for both his English IGCSE. She understood his requirements and made sure the lesson matched his need. She developed love for English and belief that he could do well with lots of tips ,ideas . A big thankyou from us.

My son has only had a couple of sessions but he already feels that Anna is helping him with his English A level; she has managed to identify his weaknesses and they are working on these. Can certainly recommend Anna so far.

Gary (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Anna has been tutoring our daughter for a year in GCSE English literature and language. Anna quickly found the areas where our daughter required help and delivered the tuition in a way that built her confidence and the ability to achieve a grad 8 in both. Anna has always been very reliable and punctual. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Eamon (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Anna worked with my son on his English Literature and Language GCSEs. My son was really struggling with the subject prior to Anna`s involvement. Anna helped him both understand the texts and what the examiners are looking for. He was probably somewhere in the 4-6 range (sometimes lower in mock tests), but he achieved an 8 in both subjects in the final GCSE.

Anna made a significant difference in his comprehension, approach and work ethic that helped him achieve a great result.

I could not recommend Anna more highly.

Anna tutored our son Tom for his English Literature and English Language GCSEs. I am delighted to say Tom achieved grade 7 in both exams (equivalent to an A) and this was in no small way due to the work Anna did with him. Before his tutoring with Anna, Tom really didn`t `get` English, especially literature so she made a real difference and lifted him from a probably Cs or Bs to the grades he achieved. I also believe the work Tom did with Anna helped him raise his game for his other GCSEs and showed him the level of dedication he needed in order to do well. Thank you Anna, we are very happy to recommend you.

She also help him with school work whenever he ask him for help. She always give feed back about his progress whenever I ask her and I am happy with her tutoring.

Anna has a calm nature about her and is very knowledgeable about English. My 10 year old twins both like Anna and are doing really well under her guidance. I highly recommend Anna.

Lorraine (Mrs)

Anna tutored my two teenagers (boy and girl twins). They found each session very helpful and without doubt they credit Anna with enabling them to achieve their As in English literature in their recent AS level exam.

Interesting lessons

Sian (Mrs)

4/5 Rating

It is still early stages but Anna has already shown to be reliable by replying to emails and arriving on time. She has quickly assessed my daughter`s learning needs and in time I hope to see the benefit of using tutorhunt with improved grades and more confidence in essay writing for exams. With improving results I hope to give a 5*feedback.
