« Perfect! I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Eloise as an English tutor. She spent just six weeks working with my son before his GCSE's this year. Their work together meant that he walked into his exams with confidence and his final results definitely reflected this. He managed to improve on his mock results by three whole grades in both English Language and Literature. A huge, huge achievement! She was able to explain things in a way that his teachers at school just couldn't and the one to one setting meant he could ask all the questions he needed which is often not possible in a classroom environment. Eloise puts a lot of preparation work into each tailored lesson. She is very professional and clearly takes pride in what she does and rightly so. She is a very talented tutor who was able to connect with my son and turn a subject that he found extremely challenging into one that he could understand and conquer. Thank you Eloise x »

Current PhD student in Education gives English Language and English Literature lessons to secondary school pupils and above in West London

Methodology

I am a current PhD student in Educational Research at Lancaster university with a full scholarship from the ESRC. I have a First Class BA in English with honors and an MA in Modern and Contemporary Literature. I provide lessons for Secondary School students, AS and A-Level students and undergraduate students studying any form of English or English Literature. My lessons cover techniques to improve writing within the subject of English, focusing specifically on structure, grammar and argument before moving on to explore and practice specific techniques for achieving high grades in assignments and examinations. I'm very flexible, relaxed and friendly. I work at the individual student's pace and cater to their preferences whenever possible.

Experience

I have over 500 hours worth of tutoring experience. I was a tutor for a year whilst studying for my MA and 2 of my students were in the final year of their GCSEs; after 6 months of tutoring with me, they moved from expecting a predicted grade of D to achieving an actual grade of A/A* in both their English Language and English Literature GCSEs.

I have tutored a variety of students in the Kent area over the past 3 years from 11+ to GCSE. I have helped them achieve better understanding in English, as well as significant grade improvements in exams.

Previous Experiences

I have worked as a tutor in the Ashford area for 3 years with students from year 6 to year 11, specialising in AQA GCSE English Language and Literature but also focusing on improving grammar and spelling. I worked as a private tutor to secondary school students in London for a year whilst studying for my MA. I specialized in English Language and Literature, but tutored in other subjects too. I work with individual students to help them understand their course material, revise for their exams and improve their chances of achieving higher grades. The students I have tutored have significantly improved in their lessons and expected/achieved grades.

Eloise's response

I thoroughly enjoyed tutoring Lewis for his GCSE English Literature and Language exams. He achieved tremendous results that were well deserved! I wish him all the best in the future :)

Eloise has been an absolute godsend. I've tried many avenues with regards to my sons extra tuition and coming across Eloise has been wonderful. She's patient, caring and very intuitive. My son now looks forward to his English lessons, something I thought I'd never see. I'd have no hesitation in recommend Eloise to anyone.

My 2 sons, ages 10 and 13 have been under the tutelage of Eloise in everything English for almost 2 years. Eloise prepared my youngest son for kent test 2018 in Grammar & verbal reasoning of which he had a outstanding score of 278 & Sats 2019 of which he was getting 40/40 in grammar & 44/50 in reading comprehension in his school's mock consistently . He has been teaching my eldest son English language & English literature since year 7 and he has even started preparing him for GCSEs already. My eldest is one of the best in set 1 and has been winning a variety of gold awards for Macbeth, poetry and his knowledge contribution to class and homework. Eloise makes teaching extremely fun by creating a variety of English activities which allows learner participation, curiosity and confidence. She uses books, video, cards, puzzles, games etc to teach that my youngest son actually look forward to her coming by standing at the gate to wait for her. If you are lucky to have her teach your kids , then your kids are the luckiest ones.

Eloise helped my daughter with her A level studies, in particular structuring and writing essays. She is extremely patient and her advice is constructive and very useful. She is a fantastic tutor and I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Eloise is a friendly, reliable, and dedicated tutor, whose academic background in English subjects and subsequently in Educational Research has provided her with a wealth of knowledge and insights into teaching to a variety of levels and abilities. Having both studied alongside Eloise and having known her in a personal capacity for many years, I'm confident in her passion and ability to provide a patient, engaging and incredibly valuable tutoring service, and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!
