I have taught English and History GCSE and A Level before. My most recent cohort came to me in the July 2020 with GCSE predictions of 5/6, and after 4 months of tutoring, I am pleased to say were predicted 8/9s. I teach online, working with the student to design a lesson plan that best suits their needs. I set homework every other week and mark it to monitor their progress and identify areas in the syllabus with which they are struggling. Occasionally I will ask the student to present an aspect of their course to me, which allows them to practice their oral advocacy skills (as a training barrister, I think this is always important!) and consolidate their understanding of the material.
I can also help with university preparation for English, History and Law.
I am a student training for the Bar. I studied History as an undergraduate (UCL 2018), and have obtained a Graduate Diploma in Law (City Law School, University of London 2019). I worked in legal policy and human rights at the International Bar Association, before commencing the final part of my legal training in September 2020.
I can do shorter sessions for university and career guidance. I normally change £15 for 30 mins, but I will review your CV/coursework before and provide written feedback.

I am a mother of two children that Colette has tutored. My children's grades had been very affected by the pandemic, but I was so lucky to have found Colette! In particular, my daughter who is in year 11 was predicted a grade 3 before meeting Colette and after 1 to 1 sessions with her, she is now predicted an 8!! Her school teacher was so shocked at the amount of progress she had made in such a short time and it is all down to Colette she is amazing, I am so pleased. She is supportive, organised, and generally just such a kind person. As a mother I couldn't recommend her enough️️
Colette is an amazing tutor I couldn’t recommend her enough! She has helped me go up three whole grades in English, in just a few months, I’ve made such significant progress with her. I went from a grade 3-4 to a grade 7-7 going on to an 8! Her lessons are so engaging and interesting and unlike other tutors I have had in the past I actually look forward to and enjoy her lessons. She makes sure I understand everything and prepares every lesson specifically to my needs, she is honestly the best!
Colette is an amazing tutor and person!
She is intelligent, kind and supportive. She helped me succeed in my exams and has really levelled up my English language techniques and skills. I highly recommend her to anyone!
