It is vital to perform to a high standard in English Exam. This exam tests the candidates` general comprehension and reading, grammar and spelling. I have had many years` experience of understanding how to prepare for that step.
My success rate is due to incorporating the pupils interests and using a range of techniques which prepare the pupils successfully without having the pressure of the exam. Their general English improves incredibly with the regular intervention.
Pupils are given confidence by being taught specific concepts. Pupils are encouraged to use a variety of different methods to consolidate learning from practical activities to computer based programmes. Always in the first instance School National Curriculum work is rigorously covered but then the pupils are encouraged to get higher targets and results

Fiona is tutoring our 15 year old for English GCSE and some maths. She has been very proactive in assisting with obtaining the relevant text books/ revisions aids, she is thorough and has taken the time to assess what subject areas our daughter needs help with including offering to speak to our daughters teachers. Our daughter finds Fiona friendly, helpful and likes her good positive attitude.
Highly recommend Fiona, she is very pleasant & approachable & a fantastic teacher.
