« Perfect! My son has only had 2 lessons so far but he seems very happy and motivated to work with Elsa and to produce Higher English and Modern Studies homework for her to look over. The advice given already has him trying to broaden his thinking. I’ve found it a pleasant and easy experience to communicate with Elsa. She replies to my messages quickly and is very accommodating, polite and friendly. Thank you very much. »

St Andrews graduate offering bespoke English tutoring and interview preparation in Edinburgh

Methodology

I give one-on-one lessons to both school-aged students and adults. When providing support for classwork, portfolio or exam preparation, my approach is led by the needs of the student. I establish the areas that require our concentration, and work together with the student to strengthen these.

Experience

I am a friendly, reliable graduate with a knack for essay writing and exam preparation. I draw upon my studies (Art History at the University St Andrews), and my private tutoring and classroom work with the British Council auxiliary programme. At school, I achieved A grades in all my Higher and Advanced Higher exams, and can adapt my approach to suit ages 10 and above.

Perfect! My son has only had 2 lessons so far but he seems very happy and motivated to work with Elsa and to produce Higher English and Modern Studies homework for her to look over. The advice given already has him trying to broaden his thinking.

I highly recommend Elsa for all your study needs. She helped me achieve an A in higher English which I could not have achieved without her. Elsa went above and beyond to really help me understand the material and her knowledge is impeccable which was also a great aid. I couldn't recommend her enough if you are looking to achieve your goals.

Elsa was a great help - with her coaching, I put together a CV and cover letter that got me an interview for the job I wanted. Highly recommended.
