13+ exams (ISEB assessments)

Key Stage 2: English and maths.

SATs preparation

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I tutor online from my office via Skype. As with all my lessons, I provide course materials and these are sent across digitally prior to the start of the lesson. There may be a few textbooks that I recommend but these are normally minimal and I always seek out the very best books for each student.

If geographically possible, I meet parents and students in person before online tuition commences. I set homework on the topics covered in the lesson to consolidate understanding and encourage greater independent learning.

Having tutored several students online, some of whom were tutored in person by me initially, many saw minimal / no difference to their tuition and several families have mentioned how easy it is to organise and fit into their schedules.

In 2015, I qualified in Effective Online Tutoring from the University of Oxford. I have extensive experience in tutoring online and work with students from across the UK and further afield.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Take confidence in your ability and don't give up on any subject which may seem initially challenging. Sometimes it can only take a different approach in transferring the subject knowledge that will make topics more understandable and most importantly enjoyable.

Super tutor

Hettie is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have helped several students excel in exams and gain confidence in their learning overall. I am committed to seeing all my students succeed and shine with the achievement of having done so.

Regular feedback is provided throughout tuition and a learning plan is put in place from the initial lesson and first meeting. There are a number of parent testimonials on my website and I have extensive experience in online tuition.

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

Yes - DBS checked and fully insured.
References can also be provided upon request.

- Where and with whom did you train?

University of Exeter (2011)
University of Oxford (2015) Effective Online Tutoring

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Prince's Trust Enterprise Programme.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current students are from the ages of 8 to 19.

I have several students who are preparing for the 11 plus exam in September and pupils sitting entrance exams in January 2018. My older students are currently taking GCSE maths and English.

My online tutees are based in Texas, Bermuda, Paris and Portugal currently so I'm hoping to learn a new language soon!

Lawson's mum

Hettie has taught our son both English and maths and it's clear that she has a way of teaching him that simply gets results. Her open, friendly but quietly firm presence gets the best out of him. We intend to use her as he progresses through the years to give him that extra dimension in addition to school. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anybody looking to boost their child's knowledge and technique.

C
Clara's mum

My daughter needed some GCSE science tuition as she was struggling at school. Hettie was reliable, friendly and knowledgeable and my daughter immediately felt comfortable with her. Over the course of the tutor sessions her confidence grew and she began to understand and enjoy science more. At her end of year test in school she did extremely well and was at the top of her class.

D
Daniel's mum

We would thoroughly recommend Hettie as a fantastic English teacher. She had only 8 weeks to prepare our 12 year old for his entrance exam but was able to help him to make significant progress. He had never done a reading comprehension before, but with Hettie's encouraging and patient approach, he successfully passed and was offered a place at our first choice school. Daniel has his lessons via Skype as we live abroad.

H
Honor's mum

I chose Hettie because instinct told me she was the right person to tutor my 10 year old in maths and English 11+ through skype (we do not live in the UK). My instinct was correct. Although we were quite late in starting tuition, Hettie rose to the challenge with a professional approach. She explained problems with patience and clarity. Importantly, Hettie also managed the difficult task of imparting a substantial amount of knowledge in a short space of time with unwavering patience and warmth.

W
William's mum

A huge thank you to the hours you have spent building his confidence and getting a thorough understanding which is great to have going onto his next school where he can build on this. We have seen William's ability to tackle problems hugely increase in the last year which is really pleasing to see. We are extremely grateful for all the help and encouragement you have offered him. We were doubtful as to whether the Skype would work but it proved a very effective way to teach that William really engaged in.

H
Hashim's mum

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being such a wonderful tutor to my two children. Your hard work and diligence helped my son pass his entrance exam and thus enabling him to earn a place at Reading boys grammar school. I'm particularly fond of your polite yet professional manner and the way in which you make the lessons engaging and fun for the students. Your friendly approach makes learning a comfortable and enjoyable experience for the student.

J
Jessica's mum

During GCSE studies we decided to find a tutor to help build our daughter's confidence in her learning, in particular science and maths subjects. Hettie was recommended to me through a friend and on meeting her it was clear she would be easy to get along with. My daughter has mentioned that Hettie was patient during tutoring sessions and also happy to spend time ensuring full understanding before starting new topics. She goes above and beyond to help students succeed.

Y
Yusra

Miss Hettie was a great teacher, even though, I was her student for only 5 lessons, I would highly recommend her, she has taught me great skills in answering my comprehension questions for English language GCSE. She identified my weaknesses and strengths, helping me enhance the skills to gain full marks in my answers. I enjoyed our lessons due to her utmost knowledge and passion for English which motivated me to work harder towards my goal.

M
Maisey's grandmother

A long summer holiday followed immediately by a 11+exam - how to keep my granddaughter focused whilst staying with me- easy answer- Hettie!! What a lovely lady. With her instant rapport she helped Maisey increase her confidence and understanding, gain a positive outlook and greater concentration which resulted in a successful outcome. Many, many thanks, Alison

L's parents

We were very pleased with Henrietta's very expert tutoring of our daughter. Always professional, she quickly established a good rapport. Our daughter genuinely enjoyed their weekly sessions and made great progress in her school work over the eight months they worked together. Her good work was fruitful - our daughter gained an eligible mark in Colyton Grammar School's entrance test in October 2017, which gives her great options.
