To help you accomplish and achieve.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach English Literature (KS3, KS4, KS5 and University level) and Psychology (KS4, KS5 and University level). Alongside my tutoring commitments I also offer a writing, editing and proofreading service. Therefore, I can provide guidance and constructive criticism on your essay, dissertation or thesis.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I am a freelance tutor, writer and researcher with a PhD in English Literature (Newcastle University). My background consists of a BA Joint Honours degree in English and Psychology and a Master's degree in English and American Literature. I also have a PGCE in Secondary English from Durham University.
- How much do you charge?
My fees are listed on this website and I believe my prices are reasonable considering the expertise and experience I can provide you with. I do provide a 10% discount if 10+ lessons are pre-booked with me and I also have a loyalty scheme which I can explain to you when we have our consultation lesson.
- Where do you teach?
I teach most of my lessons from my home. I use Skype and e-mail to ensure effective communication.
- When are you available?
I am available 5 days a week from 9am to 3pm. Additionally, I am available some evenings. Times can be arranged and lessons can be pre-booked via my website.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
My pupils vary in ages from KS3 (school pupils) to PhD students including mature casual adult learners. I teach the whole range of key stage levels and also cater for adult/casual learners.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I provide teaching sessions via Skype (1, 2 or 3 hour sessions are available). You can pay for your lessons via my website, details of which are listed above.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I am a patient, friendly and professional person who is easy to get on with. I can help you achieve your potential and accomplish your goals! I believe that motivation is a crucial factor in achieving full potential- whatever the age!
Mandy is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been a qualified teacher for 13 years and over this time I have garnered a wealth of experience teaching KS3, KS4 and KS5.
My recent clients have been PhD students and they have benefited from the fact that I have experience writing and structuring a doctoral thesis. However, I also have a number of KS3-KS5 distance learning pupils and am happy and confident to teach any age group. I believe that learning should be fun and rewarding. I provide superb exam revision sessions which will ensure you enter the exam hall confident and ready to show the examiner all you know! My role as an examiner gives me a broad understanding of exam criteria and emphasises the importance of utilising the specification in order to succeed.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an up-to-date DBS certificate.
• PhD in English Literature, Master's degree in English and American Literature, BA (Joint Honours) in English and Psychology
• PGCE in secondary English from Durham University
• CRB checked
Mandy has been extremely helpful and supportive. I would strongly recommend this tutor for national and international students. She is flexible with the lesson times and provides excellent preparation and advice. You can study by distance learning or face to face. Transport is accessible to this tutor and the fees are definitely worth it! I am a PhD student and I feel that as she has a doctorate herself she is aware of the high level required.
Brilliant tutor! Really enjoyed every lesson I had due to the range of activities used in each. Would not hesitate to recommend her to others! Thank you Mandy.
Mandy is friendly and approachable. She does a lot of preparation before lessons and is always happy to be contacted by phone or e-mail between sessions for further help or guidance.
Mandy has been an excellent tutor for my daughter, who has gained in confidence with her support. She has also helped another daughter who is studying at university and I would certainly recommend her to others.
Mandy was really helpful with my University level Psychology Essay and at last minute. Thank you!
Very inspiring and organised tutor.
Looking forward to having more lessons with you.Thank you for all your help so far.
Mandy is a brilliant tutor! She plans out the lessons, to work towards improving the areas you struggle with most. This helped me to bring my grade C in English literature to a grade A. Also great personal relationship, she's very friendly and easy to get along with.
Mandy really helped me to gain the confidence and knowledge needed to achieve the best results possible in my A-levels. She provided expert help and she was able to give me the extra push needed before sitting my exams by providing and marking extra papers and questions to ensure that I felt more than ready for the exams. Thank you Mandy!
Mandy was amazing - always there to ask a question and the detail of her analysis and knowledge was excellent. In the brief time I have known her, I have learnt more than in 1 year at Uni! Will be keeping in touch with her as studies progress. Many thanks.
