- Do you have a personal message for students?

The subjects I loved most at school were those taught by passionate, innovative teachers. My English tutors were just that - inspiring, exciting, infectiously interested in literature of all kinds. So I aim to impart that same feeling in my tutoring sessions, catering each lesson for the pupil and their individual requirements.

Background

Over 10 years of coaching and tutoring experience, I have worked with various tutoring agencies, including the highly acclaimed Enjoy Education. I achieve high results from my pupils through encouragement and enthusiasm for the task at hand, catering my sessions to the individual student.

Trained in voice and acting with Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, the National Youth Theatre and the London Speech Surgery, I teach audition technique, elocution and presentation skills. I also coach in public speaking and executive communication skills for the corporate environment.

Recent 7+ Student Testimonial:

"In June 2014 Peta began to work with Charles, who at first seemed reluctant to have to do timed comprehensions, use descriptive language when writing structured essays etc. However, over the course of time, Peta's patience, knowledge, understanding and enthusiasm made a remarkable impact upon Charles. He quickly began to really enjoy her tutoring sessions and the progress he made with her was phenomenal.

Peta's sunny personality and professionalism totally transformed Charles's attitude and capability vis-à-vis English. To such an extent that Charles was awarded 'The top scholarship' last term at his current school – a fantastic achievement." January 2015
