One to One Sessions

 

For Eleven Plus and GCSE English exams,  I offer one-to-one lessons online to children who would enjoy a more individual approach. One-to-one tuition is brilliant for children who may lack confidence or who prefer a more focused way of learning.

I just wanted to let you know about school offers. J has received offers from all the schools he applied to, with scholarships from Merchant Taylor’s and City of London Boys.
Thank you for helping J in achieving this.
Anna

C did really well and got offers from all schools, i.e. MTS, Hampton, Latymer, City of London Boys, John Lyon and St Benedict’s, with academic scholarships from City, JL and St B’s!

Thank you for your excellent teaching.

Isabelle

Just wanted to let you know A made it through to St Paul’s.

I want to say a huge thank you for getting him through this over the past few months – I don’t think it would have been possible without you!

Mrs D

Thank you for the really great job that T told me you did. She said you were absolutely wonderful and told me each day what you had studied, the exam technique you taught her, which was very helpful. Such basic and simple tools are often overlooked by teachers or missed in school by the pupil, so doing this one to one was very worthwhile.
Beth

Coriden has the ability to engage with children all abilities in a warm and nurturing way. My son has formed a lovely bond with her and has said that she is the best teacher he has ever had. He looks forward to his sessions with her and has now been offered a place at an independent school.
She is a wonderful tutor and we are very fortunate that we found her at the right time.
