Passionate, patient and kind English Tutor who focuses on both confidence and academic achievement.

Methodology

I teach by following the curriculum that a student needs to know (be it 11+, GCSE, A-level etc), but I adapt this to spark the interest of each individual student. I do this by getting to know them and choosing literature and articles that I believe they will enjoy, this enhances the chance that they will absorb that information they are given.

I am very patient and believe in giving a lot of praise to students, particularly those who lack confidence.

Background

I have a BA in English and French and am currently finishing up my MA in English. I have worked as a Tutor for the past year, and previous to that I have had experience in schools in France working as a Teaching Assistant. I have taught both 1:1 and small group classes.

My feedback has been highly complementary and the students that I have taught have improved not only their academic attainment, but also their confidence in their ability and learning process.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £225

Details

Antonia

Holly always comes well prepared. She very much engages with my daughter at a level I couldn’t. She makes it fun and current. I was encouraged by the amount of material she can cover.

Niamh

Holly helped me gain confidence in essay writing, something I struggled with before. Would highly recommend Holly as a tutor - she’s very natural and her methods put me at ease when we went over topics I found more difficult!

Tom

Holly taught my niece over the last few months helping her with her GCSE English. She managed to take a young student who had a vague interest in the subject and brought it to life for her, making the learning exciting and relevant to her. English is my niece’s second language and Holly was very patient and persistent in her approach, the recent exam results achieved by my niece have placed her in top sets for English, proving Holly’s teaching style to be effective.

I would highly recommend Holly to any student no matter what level they view themselves!
