« 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 »

Experienced English & History Tutor: History Graduate, training Barrister (Oxford and London)

Methodology

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.

Experience

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.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £25/h

Details

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!
