Tuition is available covering essential Literacy skills, English Language, English Literature and associated subjects. We offer a friendly, professional and personal service, which will be tailored to suit and support the needs of each individual student.  Private tuition sessions are offered on a 1:1 basis so that the needs of every student are fully met, supporting the progress and success of all English Elephant learners.

English Elephant core principles:

  • Love English! As a student of English you develop the most essential, exciting, influential and indispensable skills. The pen truly is mightier than the sword. If you want to run the world – or avoid being run by it – English is your most crucial weapon.
  • Love what we do! There is nothing more fulfilling than enabling or supporting the success of someone else, particularly young people.  Every day is different; every learning journey is individual and valued.
  • Know what we are doing! With over 14 years of experience in teaching and leading English at Key Stage 3, GCSE, A-level, your tutor has a confident grasp of all areas of the subject, as well as the ability to engage and support each individual regardless of ability and need. Having worked with exam boards across multiple exam specifications, your tutor understands what is required to achieve within all English subject areas.
  • Inspire a love of English and learning! We learn best when we enjoy what we do. Stress, anxiety and negativity block success. Tuition is varied, personalised and engaging.

English Tuition is provided by a qualified and experienced English teacher. They have a proven track record of attaining high standards and success with students of all abilities between 11 and 19 years old. At English Elephant we are committed to the success of each student and value the strengths, interests and ambitions of every individual involved in the learning journey: parents, pupils and learning partners.

English Elephant tuition sessions are open for parents to attend or participate in if required, and full feedback is always provided on progress and activities at the end of every session.

English Elephant just loves English and wants learners to love it too – so you can also get access to free English Elephant resources on this site.
