Information about Claire
I am an experienced and qualified teacher with a First class Hons degree in English. I have a detailed understanding of the National Curriculum up to and including Year 12 and have experience of teaching across a wide range of examination boards.
As a dedicated tutor, I am passionate about my subject and I dedicate a lot of time to supporting students, making sure concepts are easy to understand and that effective learning is taking place. I do this through the use of my own dynamic resources and consistent feedback of information to pupils.
I also provide tuition for students who need help writing personal statements for schools/universities.
I am a warm and friendly person who really enjoys working with pupils over a wide range of abilities. I believe students should not be limited, but encouraged to aim high and surpass their own expectations of themselves.
Here are some additional reviews posted on a previous tuition agency website:
From Tracey (5/5): (Primary English) Very glad we found Claire using this website!
From Sian (5/5): (English) Claire helped my son to improve his English Lit grade. She is friendly, professional and always well prepared for lessons. Claire set homework tasks and helped with knowledge of the subject and exam technique. She has given excellent feedback to both my son and myself and improved his confidence before the exam.
From Liz (5/5): (English) Claire is helping my daughter who is studying Language and Literature course. Claire works well with her to pose questions and enable her to gain insights into the texts and the requirements of assignment and exam work. Claire is professional and sets home work to ensure that appropriate feedback can be given when work is undertaken independently. Claire visits our home and is always on time and well prepared. My daughter is very pleased with the support she is receiving.
Very cooperative , experienced teacher
Claire has now finished tutoring my son, who has enjoyed his lessons and really progressed with his work in English. Claire, is well organised, enthusiastic and offers great encouragement. Thankyou Claire
Fantastic tutor found. Thankyou
I can highly recommend Claire to anyone looking to be tutored! After 3 years of my son trying to pass his English exam, Claire taught him techniques he`d never been taught and gave him the knowledge and confidence to go and finally pass with flying colours! Just wish we`d found Claire sooner!
When I set out to find a tutor for my daughter I was overwhelmed from the choice but I decided to go with Claire following her informative quick response emails and the fact she covers both Maths and English ...and I am so pleased I did! Claire who has been tutoring our daughter who is 8 year for the past several months has been fantastic.
Availability: Mondays and Tuesdays - 8am-7pm
Thursdays and Fridays - 4pm-7pm
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have spent the past three years teaching in an "Outstanding" rated secondary school in England.
I have been tutoring face to face as well as tutoring online for five years now and I am really happy to be a part of something that benefits those students who, for whatever reason, cannot come to a traditional classroom setting.
