What do Parents think?

Here are some reviews from the children’s parents

Rated 5 out of 5
“I have used Clare to help my son with his Common Entrance prep. She was absolutely amazing. Not only is she a real teacher who knows how children actually learns and what they need to close their knowledge gaps, but she was also so in-tuned to my son’s learning style, not to mention always kind and with a smile on her face. She made the hard work easy and we are just so very lucky to have been able to work together. My son got to the top schools he aimed for and we remain forever grateful.”

“My daughter Leia (Year 3) loves the lessons with Clare because they are structured in a fun way that encourages imagination. Each session is designed to enrich vocabulary and ends with a beautifully written essay about various topics. There was a noticeable improvement in my daughter's writing only after three sessions and Leia is very proud every time she has used a new word in her writing. After each session Clare provides a pdf summary of the words that have been used in the session, which we find very helpful as we can practice all the words until the next session. ”

“Charlie has clearly enjoyed his lessons with you and we would like to thank you for all that you've done with him. At last week's parents' evening his English teacher said that Charlie is doing really well and he's very pleased with all his work. ”

Creative writing feedback example

Here is an example of the guidance I provide to my students

Bitesized Coaching

If you’re not sure your child will enjoy 1:1 coaching, my Bitesized course is a great way to find out

Coaching format

Over a 90-minute session, I’ll inspire and challenge your child’s imagination to kick start their creativity. I'll help them to feel more confident in their writing ability. We will focus on planning and writing a short story that 'wows', elevating your child's storytelling confidence.

Find your path to success

My bitesized lesson won’t stress or over stretch your child. But I promise the personal attention and encouragement I provide will stir their interest in creative writing.

Personal feedback

After the session, you are can book a 20-minute Zoom call to chat about your child’s experience. I’ll provide some suggestions for specific things you can do to support your child on their writing journey.

Placing your child in the right school can be key to future success

I know the importance of 11+ success for many families. Through nurture and challenge, your child will discover their creative drive for success in exams and life beyond!

For private 1:1 coaching enquires, your first step will be a 20-minute Zoom chat so we can discuss your child’s dream goal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions you might have around the 11+

1. How does payment work?

You can spread the cost over equal monthly instalments.


2. When can we expect to see progress?

The results from tuition are cumulative, so you can expect to see progress build over a number of lessons.

However, after your child’s first lesson they are bound to feel proud of their writing, radiating a sense of satisfaction and inner confidence!
