Essay Writing

To be able to write well is perhaps the single most important skill a student can acquire. Alongside our subject-specific teaching we provide a great deal of focused essay writing tuition to pupils of all ages.

Essay Writing Tutoring

Good writing is sometimes regarded as a natural talent which certain people possess, and others do not. This misconception can lead to some anxiety around academic and creative writing, with many children becoming unsure of their written work at a young age. Our tutors are, of course, excellent guides for touching up small problems of grammar and style but they are also specialists when it comes to developing the confidence of uncertain writers.

Our method is based on a shared process of reading and writing work by both tutor and pupil. Often students are undone by their desire for complexity at the expense of clarity and precision. It is, therefore, immensely helpful for them to see how academics, lawyers and journalists express difficult ideas in simple language. This is where the first-rate education and career paths of our tutors really shine through.

11+ English | Elisa Mitrofan

" “Elisa didn't work with our son Oscar for a long period, however, she achieved great results in a short space of time. She quickly picked up where the previous tutor had laid off. She built a great rapport with him during the very first session and understood immediately why we were tutoring. Our goals were to increase confidence and encourage Oscar to challenge himself, rather than coasting through. He attends an excellent state primary, however, we just felt that some one to one attention would be a huge benefit. Elisa used Oscar's love of reading to inspire him and helped him to organise his thoughts when transferring them on to paper. She was careful not to overwhelm, but definitely hit these targets. We were always left with a sensible amount of homework and this clearly complimented the lesson that had just taken place. Elisa also suggested books that he might like to read and made the vocab tasks a lot of fun. Oscar always looked forward to his tutoring sessions, a true indication of Elisa's skills and enthusiasm! I would thoroughly recommend Elisa and can't thank her enough!” " ... See Elisa Mitrofan's tutoring profile.

I graduated from Cambridge University (Newnham College) with a 2:1 in Social Anthropology (and a 1st in Development Studies) in 2009. I have been tutoring private clients since 2005 in subjects ranging from English, Maths, English as foreign language, Interview Technique and Preparation, Test & Exam Preparation and Mentoring. However, my current focus and speciality is tutoring students for all levels of the ISEE and SSAT test as well as tutoring the 11+ and 13+ entrance exams. As a child, I attended the Chinese International School in Hong Kong and Alice Smith International School in Kuala Lumpur and then boarded at school in the UK as an overseas student. As a consequence, I particularly enjoy working with students based in Asia applying to international schools and preparing them for the cultural and curriculum adjustment of becoming an overseas student. I am now based in Singapore and tutor students of all ages here and in Hong Kong primarily. I have an excellent track record of increasing test scores and helping tutees to have the confidence and ability to achieve the grades required for their desired schools whilst also acting as a mentor throughout the preparation process. ...
I graduated from Cambridge University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Law. I first started tutoring when I was 17 as a peer mentor for students who required further help in preparing for their GCSEs. Since then, I have continued to tutor privately as well as working for well regarded organisations such as, the Oxford & Cambridge Summer School and Save the Children Int'l. The majority of my experience is working with children 14 years and above, however, I am equally confident teaching younger ages. I find tutoring incredibly rewarding and enjoy seeing the development and success of my tutees. ...
I am currently studying Human Sciences (BA) at the University of Oxford, where I am a Laidlaw Scholar and have received the Gardner Prize. The course is an interesting approach of combining the humanities and sciences to understand the interdisciplinary nature of humans, and combines a variety of subjects including Biology, Geography, Sociology and Statistics. I have tutored since 2014, working with children from ages 3-18, and at a range of abilities to produce successful results. As an individual who loves learning, I hope to pass this passion onto my students through engaging sessions and inspire them to look further than what they just learn in the classroom. I therefore find tutoring a very rewarding experience and I am passionate about helping every student reach their potential.

Having attended a selective grammar school with a 10% acceptance rate, I understand the pressure which students can place on themselves. There is a high importance of staying calm and collected, and I listen to any concerns which the student may have. I have worked with numerous individuals preparing them for common entrance exams, GCSE’s and A-levels. I place large focus on improving exam technique through understanding the mark scheme and developing approaches to apply knowledge to advanced questions. ...
I have just returned to the UK after 20 months in New Delhi, India, where I was working as an Education Consultant and teaching the SAT and ACT. I gained my undergraduate degree from Cambridge University, and have over three years experience teaching students from Primary age up to GCSE. I am open to residential positions and roles involving travel. I love to engage my pupils in extra-curricular activities such as sports, arts and crafts, trips and days out, and educational visits. ...
I am a friendly, encouraging teacher with over a decade's experience, particularly with students aged 11-13. Since graduating from Cambridge 13 years ago I have taught students of all sorts of abilities and ages (5-58) anywhere from Notting Hill to Nairobi. My curiosity about the world has drawn me to journalism as well as teaching. I worked at the Telegraph for two years and now I write about arts and culture for The Economist’s 1843, The Spectator and Apollo magazines. I am also the co-author of 'What on Earth is Going On? A Crash Course in Current Affairs' (HarperCollins, 2009 - Sunday Times 'Stocking Filler of the Year'). Both my teaching and writing are informed by a desire to understand the world, and to help others do so too. ...
I grew up in London, and was in school at Godolphin and Latymer before deciding to head to the US to attend Phillips Academy, Andover for high school. I then went on to study History of Art at Harvard University where I graduated magna cum laude with high honors. After two years working at an art gallery in New York, I returned to London where I received my Master's degree at the Courtauld Institute of Art. I have since returned to New York where I am working toward my PhD at CUNY Graduate Center.

Throughout my education I have benefitted form tutoring to help me achieve my academic goals and I understand how effective one-on-one teaching can be in preparing for big tests, catching up in a specific subject, and also building confidence. I am particularly experienced in helping students prepare for US independent and boarding school entrance examinations (ISEE, SSAT) and in working with students who need help with their personal essays or general applications for boarding school or university. As an alumni admission representative at Phillips Academy, I have worked with many students who are working on preparing applications to boarding schools and enjoy helping them to identify their strengths and use those to build a strong application. ...
I graduated from the University of Oxford with a 2.1 in BA History in 2013 and from King’s College London with a 1st class distinction in MA International Relations in 2015. I have taught a wide range of humanities subjects over the past four years and have spent my time working in the arts and creative media. I aim to widen and develop my students’ knowledge of their subject, before going on to build up confidence and exam technique. Whatever stage they are at, I will guide students through their syllabus, developing the strengths needed to help them achieve the grades they desire. To do this I work closely with each student to develop study plans focused specifically on individual needs. ...
I graduated from University College London (UCL) in 2014 with a 1st class degree in Ancient History and a Cambridge CELTA qualification in English foreign language teaching. I grew up in Sussex, England where I went to Worth Abbey boarding school and obtained my A-Levels (Maths, English, French and Music). Before applying to university I moved to London to study two more A-Levels (Ancient History and Classics) at Mander Portman Woodward sixth form college (MPW) in South Kensington. Throughout university I was an English language teacher at different international summer schools teaching teenagers of various nationalities including French, Spanish, Japanese and Russian.

After graduating from UCL I moved to the south of Spain where I tutored part-time on a one-to-one basis helping students of all ages improve their conversational English. ...
I graduated last year with 1st class honours in Experimental Psychology (BA) from the University of Oxford. I was three times awarded a college scholarship for my academic achievement, and received the Burton Prize upon graduating for the best college performance across Psychology, Geography, Sociology and Human Sciences. I am now a professional tutor and confident teaching the following subjects; Psychology, Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Geography. I also offer sessions for Oxbridge applications. I first started tutoring as a student and loved working one-on-one with my students to help them achieve their goals. Now tutoring full-time, I am dedicated to offering a tutoring experience that is tailored specifically to my student’s needs, building their confidence to go into their examinations fully prepared. ...
I am a recent graduate of the University of Oxford, where I received a first-class MPhil in Politics. At Oxford, I was a Rhodes Scholar at New College, and I served as Tutor in politics at Keble College. Prior to my arrival in the United Kingdom, I attended Brown University, where I double-majored in history and economics, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. Following graduation in 2014, I spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar at the Colegio de Mexico in Mexico City. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I am fluent in both American and British education systems — and have a passion for education, more broadly. My areas of expertise are maths, history, Spanish, College Counselling and preparation across the board. ...
