I tailor my tutorials to what each student needs, taking them through the admissions process from choosing a college and writing a personal statement to preparing for entrance exams and interviews. I am happy to advise on personal statements and colleges for any subject, and offer specialist help (including practise admissions tests and mock interviews) for English or Classics students.
I am more than happy to offer admissions and personal statement assistance to applicants at any UK university.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Annabelle will plan your first lesson with care.
I am a Classics and English graduate from Magdalen College, Oxford. I have over 3 years' experience tutoring, and can offer assistance at all points of the university application process. I received offers for all of the universities I applied to and scored 100% in my Oxford English Literature Aptitude Test. I will tailor coaching sessions to your needs and can offer help with interview technique, personal statement writing, and other aspects of the UCAS process.
As well as supporting British students through the application process, I am experienced in tutoring overseas candidates for entry into British universities. I recently tutored a native French student keen to study Maths and Physics at a British university, and am happy to say that he has been offered a place at Cambridge.

Hello! I'm Annabelle, a Classics and English graduate from Magdalen College, Oxford. I have been giving private tutorials in GCSE and A Level English for over three years, and recently brought a student's GCSE English Literature grade up from a 5 to an 8. Mostly, I tutor GCSE, Pre-U, and A Level students in English, but I also tutor Latin on request and have extensive experience with university admissions tutoring, especially for Oxbridge.
I have also completed Bystander Intervention Training and am trained as a Peer Supporter, so offer pastoral support to back up my high standards of academic tutoring.
There is nothing better than helping students to achieve their goals, whether that involves instructing them in exam technique, giving them the opportunity to access detailed feedback on essays, or simply allowing them the space to talk in depth about exam subjects and develop confidence in their own ideas. During the course of the pandemic, more students than ever have needed academic support outside of the classroom, and I am always happy to take on students that are looking for extra help.
I spend quite a lot of my non-tutoring time reading! Outside of that, I am a very keen skier, and love visiting galleries in London, as well as enjoying the theatre and opera with friends.
Anabelle is an excellent teacher! She is well prepared for any syllabus, topics you need and she makes lessons more engaging whilst allowing you to write about your essays with a further understanding!
Annabelle is the best tutor I have ever had. Since we've started our lessons I have gained a tremendous amount of confidence and skills. She is always patient, kind and unbelievably knowledgeable. I would 100% recommend her!
Annabelle is a wonderful, dedicated and trustworthy tutor. She goes the extra mile in making sure her students are engaged, as well as ensuring they are thinking creatively and critically about what they are studying.
Annabelle is great! My daughter loves her sessions with Annabelle finds them funs so "not a chore". Annabelle knows the curriculum and is very good with exam technique. Capable, inspiring and supportive coach.
I have only had a few lessons with Annabelle, but I have already improved immensely in English thanks to her. Her teaching method is very concise, helpful and engaging. She covers all the topics I require so that I'm confident in my knowledge of the subject. She also gives valuable feedback and suggestions to improve my personal weak areas.
Annabelle is intelligent and can enthusiastically explain any subject in English. She is supportive and won't move on to another topic until you're happy with it. I always leave her lesson well-informed, pleased and anticipating the next one. Highly recommend! : )
Annabelle is always prompt, attentive, and specialises the tutoring around what the pupil finds comfortable whilst maintaining academic rigour and working towards a clear goal. All of her material is original and tailored, and in my experience can provide equal benefit from beginners to intermediate learners alike.
Annabelle is an extremely clever, friendly, and helpful colleague. She would make an excellent tutor, and has shown to have good communication skills and organisation skills.
