About me

I have a first class degree in Spanish and International Media Communications - an amazing mix of gender studies, transnational cinema, media industries, photography, film and all things to do with contemporary culture!

I have a first class degree in Spanish and International Media Communications - an amazing mix of gender studies, transnational cinema, media industries, photography, film and all things to do with contemporary culture!


I have a passion for teaching and have always tutored others throughout my time at University so I've had a good experience with exams and coursework. I use a strategic way of revision and learning: I always think about the end goal (an exam/coursework). This really helps students not to get overwhelmed with tons of information and ideas - as is often the case with Spanish, Media Studies and English Literature!


I teach with the exam in mind, practicing exam structures, organising information, and linking theories or ideas to really understand in depth! Tutorials are not school, it is time for students to go over whatever they need at the pace that is right for them and I really encourage my tutees to be honest about how they find their topic so I can make the session personal to their learning and understanding. I don't believe a 'one fits all' approach, there has to be a level of adaptability and fun, because you're much more likely to learn when you're enjoying it!

About my sessions

I think tutoring should always be personalised, so I'd ask for some prior indication of what they want to go over for me to prepare a lesson, resources and examples which can help them outside of our session

I’ve always found visual aids helpful - I create resources for the student to take away and apply to their work; visuals, pictures & colours can be more effective than just notes when it comes to revision. In terms of progress, I strongly believe that a students’ confidence when discussing a topic is a good indicator of their progress, but I do also encourage my students to do exam style writing practice which I can set for them, mark and send back or go through with them. While my key focus for the students is exam technique and preparation, I do think taking the pressure off measuring “progress” and instead focusing on building confidence and interest in the subject is more beneficial for the long term success of the student.

Eleanor is a great tutor who personalises each lesson to your needs and always comes prepared before every lesson. This helped me a lot as I could target my weeknesses which helped me with my overall grade in Media Studies A level. She gives a good insight into each topic we discuss and she also provides me with further research which helps solidify the understanding of the current topic. overall she is a fantastic tutor and very friendly and comfortable to learn with. all of this helped me get a B in Media Studies and helped me get to my firm university choice

I was very lucky to have been recommended by my BIL of this site that too came at the very last minute to the exam but quality of support my daughter got from both the teachers were simply outstanding. Both the teachers were Flexible, professional, friendly and very effective. My daughter came back with a simile from both the exams. I will recommend them with confidence and thank you teachers.

I highly recommend Eleanor (Ellie). She is very encouraging and thorough. My son really struggled with Media studies, getting to grips with the theory and applying it. Ellie has been a fantastic help explaining theory, applying it to questions. Thanks Ellie.
