About me

My target-based approach with my tutees helps them to achieve the exam results they deserve whilst my personable approach and enthusiasm for my subject makes it an enjoyable experience. 
 
I have continuously achieved exam success throughout my academic life achieving top grades at GCSE and A level.  I have learned that aptitude and hard work are not enough and that a systematic approach to first identifying the key targets important to examiners and identifying the gap between that current capability is an essential activity that makes all of the difference to examination outcome.  
 
I also believe that discussion is essential to success in English. It is a subject that is made more interesting and more varied through questioning. My one-to-one sessions with my tutees will provide them with an environment in which they can form ideas about a text and then question them. This questioning is a higher level skill that will improve your reading and understanding of a text and ultimately lead to a better exam grade.
 
Key to the tutoring process is a focus on individual needs. Book an informal 'meet the tutor' session so that we can identify weaknesses that need to be addressed and strengths upon which we can build.

Lucy has given us very good help to prepare my son for his IGCSE exam. I am sure her hard work and dedication will pay us off with the good exam results we are expecting.
