Information about Elizabeth

I am a very friendly and approachable tutor. I currently run an independent STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) social enterprise company. This involves extensive communications training of teachers and professional development. I also run the Yorkshire Planetarium. My experience means I can relate and communicate with young people very effectively. I can also explain complicated science ideas in an understandable way.

My last but one teaching position was at Charterhouse one of the UK`s top boarding school, at Charterhouse I taught Pre-U physics and iGSCE Chemistry and Physics.

I have just completed a year as the Head of Physics in Milan, Italy, I am returning to the UK in August. In Italy I have been teaching IB physics and Mathematics and also the iGCSE in Physics and Mathematics.

Availability: I am very flexible daytime, evenings and weekends just ask. I prefer students to travel to me, but please ask about the availability to travel to you when you contact me.

After School

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: Over ten years experience in tutoring and science education. I previously worked for the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory as an outreach and communications manager. I lecture, teach and work on education projects throughout England. From working with primary children building rockets to advising government on science education policy - my work is varied and engaging. I work for private education tutoring companies and in referral units - no learning difficulties or problems or specialist gifted abilities are out of my reach to deal with. I have worked with many types of learning disabilities and can utilise my experience to target individual strengths and weaknesses by applying appropriate learning methodologies.

I am an expert tutor at A-level Physics and I am frequently asked to go into schools to help improve results, I have a proven track record of this and have the ability to boost grades massively through targeted revision and teaching with young people.

After a mix up with phone numbers with Liz, I originally gave her 1 star- (which i wish i could remove.) However, we managed to contact each other and Mary began lessons in maths and science. Mary has been seeing Liz for over a year and she is absolutely amazing. Mary and Liz have built up a brilliant relationship and Liz genuinely cares about her. Her patience and ability to make concepts simpler has lead to my daughter from struggling to cope with GCSE maths to now taking a level maths and further maths. Liz has given Mary extra time, helped her to receive a high grade in Physics GCSE and my daughters progress in maths and the sciences has been astounding. In fact Liz even helped my older daughter pass the maths and mechanics test for the Royal Navy! Can`t thank Liz enough. A fantastic tutor!

Miss Elizabeth has already helped my daughter feel more confident about her maths. She has had 3 lessons already and I think that she is feeling more able to grasp concepts she was struggling with before. Ava feels happy, contented and at ease around Miss Elizabeth.

Although it is some time ago that we used Elizabeth, my daughter found her very friendly and approachable, Elizabeth did put her at ease and her grades improved greatly

Vanessa (Ms)

5/5 Rating

So far so good, my son has had only 2 lessons, but I am pleased with his growing self confidence in maths. He seems a lot more confident in answering questions and solving problems than at school. I am hoping he can soon transfer this increased self confidence in his abilities to the classroom at school.

Elizabeth has been tutoring my daughter for the past few months in preparation for her maths A Level. Thanks to Elizabeth`s teaching methods, my daughter now feels more confident and better prepared for her exams. I am more than happy to recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking for a tutor.

Extremely knowledgable and very supportive

Tracy (Miss)

3/5 Rating

It is difficult to provide an accurate star rating as we did not proceed with the study. I was looking for someone to travel to us and in the case of Elizabeth the student needs to travel to her. Elizabeth was quick to respond to questions and requests. So in our case this was just not a suitable logistical match not a reflection of the quality of tutoring.

Tutors Response :

Dear Tracy,

My profile does say home only. I would have been willing to come to you though if you had asked as you are very close by. I will offer you a free lesson to compensate for buying my details. I hope you will be in touch.

Kind regards

I wish we had contacted Elizabeth earlier as she definitely helped my son with his physics AS and A2 grade after only a couple of months. Even if his grades hadn`t improved, I would have considered my money well spent, as my son enjoyed the extra lessons and they definitely improved his confidence, which was key after a disappointing AS result. Elizabeth was friendly, flexible and supportive. I can confidently recommend her.

Elizabeth was invaluable in helping our son pass his maths GCSE. In fact he achieved an A, something he never dreamed possible. Plus his confidence received a boost which carried through to all his other subjects

Rachel (Dr)

5/5 Rating

My son has really been struggling with his AS Chemistry and Elizabeth is helping him to understand in a slow more controlled environment so that he is picking up some of the basics that seem to have passed him by and not been addressed by school. I would recommend her to any students.

Julie (Miss)

Elizabeth is an excellent tutor. I have gained enormous confidence working on past papers. She is a friendly tutor who is willing to recap parts of topics only brushed over by teachers and helps show you how to structure a question in order to gain full marks every time on certain questions. She uses the online petal Edmodo which is very useful when revising alone or recapping weaknesses. I would recommend her without hesitation.

Our son did not want a tutor at all but after disappointing AS results in physics he agreed to try. Within a couple of weeks he could see a dramatic improvement not only in his understanding of the subject but in the confidence he had. This has transferred to his other subjects as well and school have noticed a difference in his confidence too. Elizabeth is available all the time, from lessons and Skype to us scanning work over prior to lessons for her to review. Best thing we ever did for our son and hopefully now his exam results will speak for themselves!

has helped my daughter with chemistry revision, explaining things in clear precise way and given feedback on test papers, resulting in improvement in confidence and learning

Mark (Mr)

Elizabeth is an outstanding tutor and with an excellent ability to explain complex ideas in both Physics and Maths.
My sons feedback is very positive "I learn more in an hour than in a week at school", which makes Elizabeth excellent value and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Elizabeth was very organised with questions before and after the 1st lesson that allowed her to be prepared and ready. Very informative and got on brilliantly with my daughter.
