I have experience tutoring all humanities and social science subjects to a high standard up to degree level. I have a lot of experience preparing students for exams and an exemplary record in improving their grades and confidence quickly. This year on average my GCSE students improved by more than 2 grades.


Many of my students are being home educated, or need some extra support aside from exams, and I specialise in being a flexible tutor, who can teach a variety of subjects in engaging ways. I have designed curriculum for home educated students and figured out ways to incorporate education into games, projects and experiments. I love working with parents and children to find what they need from education.


I also particularly focus on special needs tutoring, including home-schooled students, and those with a variety of additional needs. I have many students with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties. Additionally, I have a lot of academic experience in Disability Studies. I have a Dyslexia Training Certificate, a Certificate in Specific Learning Difficulties and have passed the core modules from The National Autistic Society.

I am a vastly experienced tutor and have taught English GCSE, A-Level and degree level specifications, I really enjoy tutoring and am an enthusiastic teacher.


I teach very flexibly, and always adapt my lessons to the individual needs of the student, making sure we focus on the curriculum, while also concentrating on the weaknesses and strengths of the tutee. My first session also involves me taking an assessment of the student's progress and any weaknesses, and a chat with the student and parents about what would be the best areas to focus on and what the goals of tuition are. 


Exam skills are often the most integral things we learn together, and can also improve their attainment in other subjects outside of the Humanities. For a lot of my students, some focus on general exam skills improves their grades across the board.


If they are not preparing for exams, I will focus on other goals, and I like to incorporate wide-ranging learning, which means I can challenge students about their opinion in English (improving their English skills), but also making them think about sociological concepts or political ideas for example. I believe a good education should incorporate learning from everywhere!

Over the last 6 months my son, Owen, has had many English Lessons with Eleanor. His English has improved exponentially as a result. I could not recommend any other tutor more strongly.

Eleanor is amazing. She is flexible, accommodating and creative in her approach with my daughter, who has complex learning needs. Patient to a fault and ultra reliable we are beginning to see real results. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Eleanor is an experienced tutor. She speaks with confidence and has a clear voice. It is very essential in the tutorial. She explained the points in detail and alert the students what the natural way to write and speak English is.

Eleanor does not ask her customers for a review. Maybe she should. As a Teacher for my son, Owen, I rate her very highly. She makes very clear preparation for each lesson. She has a very nice teaching manner which makes Owen very comfortable and able to express himself. She's patient, takes things slowly and is very concise. Overall, Eleanor is a very professional teacher.
