A level Economics tutee
« Helen was a fantastic tutor and thanks to her I achieved an A grade in Economics. Having always preferred quantitative subjects, my writing skills were severely lacking and these needed to be improved to get into university. Helen's guidance on essay structure and how to evaluate transformed my essay writing and allowed me to achieve 93%. I learnt more about essay writing in the short period in which Helen tutored me than I did in my schooling. I cannot recommend her highly enough! »

Helen - Clapton - Economics

Methodology

I tutor because it allows me the opportunity to enliven learning every day. Helping students make sense of a subject is of course the primary aim; helping them to enjoy it is a brilliant added bonus!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English and Maths from 8 years upwards. I also tutor Economics at A level standard and help eager drama students in preparing for their Lamda exams.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

B.A. English, Cambridge University (2.1);
A-Levels: English Literature (A), History (A), Economics(A).

Vocational:
I have a B.A(Hons) in Professional Acting from LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art), and have studied physical theatre and clowning at L'Ecole Philippe Gaulier in Paris. When I'm not tutoring I tour stand up comedy shows to major comedy festivals - Edinburgh, Melbourne etc and record audio books as well as ELT resources.

- How much do you charge?

£45 p/h

Travel up to £6 further than 6 miles from N16. PLEASE INCLUDE DETAILS OF ADDRESS ON FIRST CONTACT.
Cancellation fee of the lesson rate for a cancellation with less than 24hrs notice.
1 extra student = £10 p/h

- Where do you teach?

East London / North London / Central London
At my home, in students' homes or in coffee-shops, as preferred.

- When are you available?

Very flexible to students' needs. Weekends and weekdays, plus after school and all vacations.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

KS3, GCSE, A-level; teenagers and adults.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

KS1, 2, 3, Common Entrance exams, GCSE, A level.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have tutored students in Hong Kong, Shanghai, UAE and America over Skype with great results. Most recently a student being educated in UAE won a place at South Hampstead school.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Because every student responds differently to tutoring I tailor my style to fit each individual. My students and I overcome areas of real difficulty most effectively when they trust me. I hope to gain a tutee's confidence so that learning can become fun and collaborative, rather than a trial which is totally focused on testing.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been a tutor for 9 years, starting whilst studying, and tutoring a wide range of abilities including students with dyslexia. Students of mine have gone on to gain A grades at A Level and are starting at Oxford and Cambridge this autumn. I have also helped younger students gain a place at their target schools post 11+ with success across all the major schools in London.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Keystone Tutors; Bespoke Tutors; Oxbridge Applications.

A level Economics tutee

Helen was a fantastic tutor and thanks to her I achieved an A grade in Economics. Having always preferred quantitative subjects, my writing skills were severely lacking and these needed to be improved to get into university. Helen's guidance on essay structure and how to evaluate transformed my essay writing and allowed me to achieve 93%. I learnt more about essay writing in the short period in which Helen tutored me than I did in my schooling. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Helen is an outstanding tutor! We contracted Helen to intensely tutor our daughter in preparation for her 11+ exams. Each morning Helen brought her natural enthusiasm to the classes. Our daughter found the classes fun and stimulating and over a three hour period that took some skill! We saw a marked improvement in our daughter's score over a short period of time. Our daughter achieved four offers from her target Schools and much of this achievement is down to Helen's dedication and enthusiasm.

Mrs Cartwright

We were totally surprised and thrilled on results day. My daughter
achieved 3 A grades in her A Levels - English, Spanish and Art. So,
thanks very much for all your good works in helping her achieve this... I'm sure you helpred her tremendously
