Information about Lisa

I am friendly and approachable and have been an English teacher for twenty years. I can tutor pupils in Basic English Skills as well as those students preparing for their G.C.S.E, A/S and A Level exams. I have experience of teaching and marking a variety of exam boards including WJEC, OCR, AQA and EDEXCEL I GCSE. I have attended a number of exam board conferences and this has allowed me to see exactly what examiners are looking for when they are marking exam papers. I am also able to tutor Primary School pupils and those at Key Stage Three. I am passionate about reading and enhancing pupils` writing skills. I have completed my Masters Degree in English Literature and this has helped to enhance my teaching skills, particularly in the area of literature. I have a very good track record of helping pupils to achieve excellent results and many of my GCSE and A Level pupils have achieved A stars. I have an excellent bank of resources to share with pupils of all abilities and these will help them to achieve the highest grades.
I am more than willing to tutor from my home.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Availability: Weekday, evenings and weekends.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have been an English teacher for twenty years and have taught and tutored pupils at Key Stages Three, Four and Five and am also qualified to teach Key Stage Two pupils.

I am an active member of the National Association for the Teaching of English and am the Regional Representative for Wales. I have spoken several times about teaching English at their National Conferences and have also had many article published in their magazines.

Lisa is an excellent tutor. She has a really gentle manner and takes time to explain and discuss things with the student, my stepdaughter, who responds very well to her approach.

The improvement in my stepdaughter`s work is huge and I have noticed her confidence grow. She is preparing to get B`s in her IGCSE exams this summer.

Lisa knows the curriculum very well and was able to hit the ground running.

I highly recommend Lisa.

I Found the Tutor Hunt website process easy and user friendly. Lisa - our Tutor is very friendly and engaging and my daughter has taken to the lessons better than we could have expected. We are only a few lessons in but I can see my daughters confidence growing. We are confident Lisa will continue her great work and our daughter`s English will continue to improve.

Lisa Tippings developed a wonderful relationship and rapport with my daughter. The weekly, hourly session was always very well prepared for and my daughter`s confidence in studying A2 level English Literature improved, markedly, and this helped her towards a very good A level result. My daughter looked forward to her session with Lisa every week.
Lisa`s work ethic is excellent and her weekly pre-session preparation and her work with my daughter went above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend Lisa Tippings to tutor English at any level.
