Member since 2020 Mrs Elizabeth P

I went into teaching because I love literature and I love working with young people; as a result I find it not only satisfying but also thoroughly enjoyable. I have worked in independent schools since 2005 and as a private tutor since 2013. I am a highly qualified and experienced teacher. I have taught IGCSE English Language and English Literature (CIE and Edexcel), GCSE English (OCR, WJEC and AQA), GCSE English Language (OCR and AQA) and GCSE English Literature (OCR, WJEC and AQA) as well as examining for OCR, AQA and CIE, and can teach to any syllabus. At A level I have taught English Literature (OCR, Edexcel and AQA) and the Literature aspect of English Language and Literature (Edexcel). I have also taught Drama and Theatre Studies (AQA), preparation for the ACT and SAT, and Literature undergraduates. I have many years of experience teaching students with educational special needs. I believe that study and revision skills are incredibly important and always teach them alongside academic subjects. I have QTS, and a Boarding Schools Association certificate in pastoral care. I complete the statutory Keeping Children Safe in Education training yearly.

I am an experienced primary school teacher with Qualified Teacher Status. I am currently in Year 4 but have taught throughout the primary phase. I have worked with students both on a one to one basis, groups and full classes. This has also included online tuition via Zoom alongside more traditional face to face tuition. I can assist any primary school students and coach children for the 11 plus exam. I can also help children who are behind expectations in high school and support them to catch up. I believe that my excellent communication skills and solid academic background enable me to be an effective tutor particularly within the core subjects of English and maths.
