**NOW AVAILABLE FOR SUMMER CATCH-UP COURSES AND OXBRIDGE AND PERSONAL STATEMENT PREPARATION**

I have just graduated from the University of Cambridge where I studied French and Russian. On my year abroad I lived in Petrozavodsk, Russia and I also spent half a year living in Paris. I am well equipped to help with any language needs, course questions or applications to University. My degree is mainly literature based so I can also help with questions about set texts. I'm looking forward to sharing my passion of languages and literature with you, and hopefully making it fun too!


Regarding Oxbridge preparation and Personal Statements, applying can be a really daunting experience. Whilst at Cambridge I was part of several access schemes where I conducted mock interviews and supervisions with students, and have helped several students with university applications. While no tutor can ensure a place at Oxbridge, I want to make students feel much more confident in themselves and be able to convey their passion and ability more clearly in the application process.

After several years of tutoring, I have seen how much difference asking questions in one-to-one tutoring can make. I also want my students to feel completely comfortable with making mistakes. Learning languages in particular is a long road and I fully believe that mistakes have to be made in order to progress.


I'd love to meet you and see how I can help you. I am available for free online meetings evenings and weekends so send me a message or book one in directly!

Eleanor has been amazing to my teenagers who sat for GCSE and A levels this year. She has been very patient, reliable to all of us. Especially one of my children was struggling with predictive grade for GCSE history but after getting tuition with Eleanor, he achieved top mark as well as his French. We thank you very much for her!

I really can not recommend Ellie enough if anyone is looking for a languages tutor, particularly for French. I started sessions with Ellie to help build my confidence for my A level French speaking exam as I felt it was my weakest area, however she also marked several practice essays that I had written. All of our sessions were tailored to suit my needs and every topic that I wanted to cover was covered in great detail thanks to Ellie's evident and extensive knowledge. Her feedback from my essays was always thorough and extremely helpful. I could not be happier to say that I achieved 59/60 in my speaking exam and an overall A* in French! I strongly believe that I would not have achieved this grade without the opportunity to practice speaking with Ellie. Thanks to Ellie's incredible support, with a little hard work from myself along the way, I will begin studying French and Beginners Portuguese at Oxford University this October. Thank you SO much Ellie for everything! (Written by Sophie, Student)

I could not be more thrilled with the results that Eleanor has achieved with my A level students. She had a challenging task in tutoring 4 students of differing levels of confidence and ability, and all having chosen a different combination of the set books and films, but her extensive subject knowledge meant that she was able to manage this very well indeed. Her marking of the students' work was very thorough and the feedback was clear. All students achieved A or A* grades this summer (2019) and this would not have been possible without Eleanor, so I highly recommend her as a tutor of Russian. Thank you so much, Eleanor, for all your help.

Excellent session with Ellie practising French speaking. Ellie is really helping me to build up my confidence before my exam in May and I can already see a huge improvement in my spoken language. Would highly recommend!
