English Tutor in Cheltenham:  one-to-one tuition for students of all ages

  Private tuition tailored to suit all needs   

Tuition  take place in the traditional one-to-one situation in the tutor's or the student's home.  

Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia)      

Those with specific learning difficulties may need one or two lessons to identify their particular needs.  This may involve an on-line test to establish whether the student has dyslexic tendencies.  It may be appropriate for some students - if they have poor phonological awareness - to follow the Sounds-Write reading programme, a phonics-based reading and spelling course.  For more information on Sounds-Write, visit sounds-write.co.uk


 GCSE programmes consist of combinations of the following: essay planning and organisation, paragraph development, examination techniques, literature text revision and basic skills practice.  I currently teach students from Pittville, Bournside, Balcarras, The Crypt and Chosen Hill schools and am familiar with the syllabuses they use.

  AS and A Level Programmes    

Programmes for AS and A Level students vary widely depending upon the syllabus being followed.  But whether you need help with phonetic transcription or examining the main themes in Othello, help is on hand.

Beyond A Level, help can be provided with equivalence examinations and  Professional Skills Literacy Tests for Teacher Training courses.
