COURSE FEATURES

Small classes

I teach small friendly classes of no more than six children. I can give each child individual attention where required. . The children make firm friendships too!

l

Materials

The Course Workbook will be emailed before the classes starts. Your child will need a notebook and pencil/pen for the course to produce longer pieces of writing.

Online Classroom

I teach all lessons online in a secure room in Zoom.  It is a super way of teaching English as I can share and send materials straightaway.
 

Cost-Effective

The cost of group tuition is less than half that of one-to-one tuition with me. It’s an excellent investment in your child’s future!

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

Although my son is a voracious reader, his writing skills have always been quite poor. When I came across Coriden, I wasn’t expecting miracles; I was hoping for a few tips and ideas to guide him. However, in just a few sessions, Coriden has magically transformed my son into a budding writer. She’s done the impossible – for the first time, he believes that he can actually create a coherent, engaging piece of writing and this is more than I could have ever asked.

Every lesson is beautifully structured and conducted, with the children taking an active part. The feedback we get is fantastic: informative, insightful, encouraging and supportive. 

Of course, the 11 Plus exam is the primary reason I enrolled my son Coriden’s Creative Writing class. But no matter the outcome of the September test, his work has already surpassed my expectations and is hopefully the beginning of a lifelong passion for the written word.

 

MRS M SZCZPANIAK

Thank you for all your help and the amazing support you provided for H during 2020. You were really fantastic at delivering what is needed to ensure H passed the English 11+ exams without any of the pressure.

You went the extra mile during the Covid pandemic and gave your full commitment to ensure H was successful in achieving his goals.

It is obvious that this is far more than a business to you and you relish seeing your pupils achieve their full potential.

He was entered into 4 Grammar School 11+ entrance exams and he passed all of them achieving ranking in the top 2%.

We are ever grateful for your efforts and highly recommend Coriden English Tuition.
