- 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.

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.

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.

During my working with Peta, we started by experimenting to personalize the exercises and find those best suited to me. Her expertise, her ability to notice even small differences, and her clear instructions have allowed me to literally discover my natural voice after only a few sessions.

The improvements in my professional and personal lives have simply been tremendous.
