Just a few of our English teachers in Faringdon

Mrs Kate W

I have a 25-year track record of guiding students to excellent A Level, GCSE and school entrance exam results. My intention is always to equip young people with the rigorous skills needed to attain strong grades, whilst nurturing their flair and imagination. As a full-time tutor I am available for weekday, daytime sessions and welcome students who are being home schooled or struggle in a school environment. Years of experience as a GCSE and A Level examiner have given me insight into why some students succeed above others. I recognise every child is different and every child thrives on personalised, flexible ways of learning. This is particularly vital when tutoring dyslexic students and those with concerns around processing and retaining information. I am convinced that my expertise and 'can do' teaching style gives all students the confidence to flourish. My forensic knowledge of entrance requirements for prestigious schools, means that your child will have the best possible chance.

Ms Heather H

I have over ten years' teaching experience at both secondary schools and colleges, specialising in English and English Literature. I have also worked as a tutor for small groups of students in addition to tutoring private students, usually to help towards GCSE exams, but also to boost learning within Key Stage 3 and 2. I am happy to teach either online or one-to-one. My teaching style is based around encouragement and coaching. I believe that everyone has the ability to learn, although not always at the same pace, which is why tutoring is so good for those lacking in confidence in the classroom. I like to build a rapport with my students, to engage with them and thus help them to gain confidence and achieve their true potential. I also have experience of teaching adults with learning difficulties such as dyslexia and social difficulties and have helped them attain Functional Skills qualifications and GCSE English.
