One to One Tuition

11+ Reading

Bespoke English Lessons

I offer bespoke literacy support to children who need to improve their English skills for a variety of reasons. 

After an individual assessment, a tailored program is mapped for your child in line with the National Curriculum, 11+/ISEB syllabus or GCSE examination board.

I draw on a wide bank of materials, developed over many years of teaching English, to ensure that the lessons are varied and engaging.

One-to-one tuition can be particularly beneficial to those children who find it easier to focus without the distractions of classmates and need a safe space to learn.

What’s included


I will carry out an assessment to find out where your child’s strengths and weaknesses lie. The assessment covers both reading and writing skills. Also, I like to have an informal chat with you both to learn more about your child and what their interests are. 


I develop a bespoke learning plan based on the results of the assessment. I plan lessons to prepare your child for their chosen schools. Written progress reports are given at regular intervals.


Sessions are an hour. I give homework to ensure your child has understood the lesson. I review their homework and give feedback in the next session. 


Online tuition is a superb way of learning. It offers more flexibility for parents and is less stressful for the pupil. There is no travelling– or hunting around for homework! It is a super way of teaching English as materials can be shared and discussed. All lessons are on either Skype or Zoom and recorded.
