I am a 3rd year Sport and Exercise Science (BSc) student, studying at Loughborough University. Currently I am working as an Exercise Physiologist whilst on placement at the English Institute of Sport.


Physical Education is a subject which I have always enjoyed and am passionate about. Growing up, I was an elite acrobatic gymnast and also took part in as many sports as I could throughout school! I now am captain of our University Cheerleading team and enjoy the hard work we put in to create the best performance possible on competition day.


At college I spent time tutoring and working with others in years younger than me to help them grow in confidence when learning the subject and answering exams questions. This is something that I am really keen to continue.


Both GCSE and Alevel PE allowed me to really understand the body, the mind and society in the context of sport. This is something I find so interesting as it can be applied into real life situations and help improve performance, both in grass roots and elite level.


I currently work in elite sport which is so exciting as I can see how what I learnt at Alevel and GCSE can be transferred into improving a GB athlete's performance. This is by using science and physiology to develop and improve training and therefore their performance outcome.

About my sessions

Whilst studying I really compartmentalise my learning into smaller sections, making the content much less overwhelming. I aim to also do this within my sessions by breaking down each topic and helping the students understand definitions first before beginning to explain anything in depth. This I believe will encourage learning as once the students begin to understand key terms the explanation and depth will hopefully seem simpler and more engaging to learn.

This I believe will encourage learning as once the students begin to understand key terms the explanation and depth will hopefully seem simpler and more engaging to learn.


I believe exam technique is one of the most important parts of both A level and GCSE PE. Therefore to measure progress I will go through example questions with the students and also give them some to try themselves. This will give them an idea of what to expect in the exam and also improve confidence as they get used to the style of questions and how to break down an answer.

Our daughter has worked with Ellie for the past 2 months and she has made so much progress. Ellie is extremely organised and explains each question so well. Ellie has instilled so much confidence in our daughter that I believe that she will do very well in the exams. We have already seen the improvements in the mocks.
