Information about Elinor

I am a fully qualified and experienced Secondary school teacher and I also teach students for whom English is an additional language. I have a first class degree with honours in Linguistics and Phonetics and a Masters with distinction in Linguistics, specialising in phonetics and phonology.

Whether you are looking for help with controlled assessment or an essay, exam preparation or general tuition, I tailor my lessons to the needs of the individual student taking into account their strengths and areas to improve. Call me now to discuss your requirements!

Tuition takes place at my home in Headingley although another mutually convenient venue can be arranged.

Availability: As a full time, self employed private tutor, I am available at any mutually convenient time including daytimes, evenings and weekends.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I am an experienced English teacher having worked in a number of Leeds Secondary schools. I also work with students for whom English is an additional language and am an accent training specialist. I have been working as a private tutor for eight years and for the last five of these it has been my main job.

I am hardworking and enthusiastic and I enjoy creating lessons using a variety of learning styles that are centred on the needs of the learner.

Before qualifying as a Secondary English teacher I taught Linguistics and Phonetics to undergraduate students, worked in a bookshop and worked in a forensic audio phonetics laboratory using my skills in English to solve crimes. I hope to bring a little of my varied experience and enthusiasm for language to our tutoring sessions!

My son is in year eight and has had four lessons with Elinor. We can already see an improvement in his grade and enthusiasm in English ,a subject he previously had no interest in and was struggling with at school. He enjoys the lesson - he says it’s a good balance between work and fun.

My son had always struggled with English at school and as year 11 started I realised that he needed extra support. Ellie quickly realised that my son exhibited typical dyslexic tendancies and we were able to follow this up, affording him extra support in school. Ellie`s weekly sessions not only developed his english skills but greatly contributed to his growing confidence and he quickly felt comfortable asking questions and being able to speak his mind. My son was able to achieve a Grade 5 in his English exam this year after having only ever achieving a grade D previously. Thank you Ellie for all your support. It has made a world of difference!
