I am an enthusiastic and patient tutor with a passion for English. I care about nurturing, encouraging and inspiring pupils with their studies and am a firm believer that every student has the potential to succeed.
I specialise in literature and creative writing but teach a range of topics. I work to build confidence in all my pupils, encouraging them to think outside the box and achieve their goals.
I deliver all lessons in accordance with National Curriculum standards but take a more flexible approach. I trained as a Montessori tutor, an education system based on the principle that children are constantly learning from the world around them.
While I work to ensure students reach their targets, I believe that learning to love a subject is part of the process.
"Francesca has helped my 14yr old daughter enormously. She has worked hard to connect with her in a way that has engaged her, challenged her belief that she 'hated english' and was 'rubbish at it', and helped her grow in confidence & understanding. She listens to my daughters interests and has used them creatively as a way in."

"Great tutor, she really goes above and beyond to help children who dont want to learn. Our son is autistic and she has been great with him working through his most hated subject. Would definately recommend Francesca to anyone who needs help with GCSE."
Natalie H, parent
"Really very happy to have found Francesca as a tutor for our eleven-year-old son. He absolutely loves his lessons with her. Francesca is dedicated and engaging with an evident talent for teaching and the English language."

"Francesca has been helping my twin boys (7 years old) with their phonics and reading as they have been behind their peers at school. We have found her to be both calm and engaging and both boys look forward to their lessons with her. I am impressed by how organised and creative Francesca is, catering to their individual needs and learning styles. Already after a few weeks I can see improvements in their skills and am delighted that despite working over the computer they seem to have a wonderful working relationship and want to continue.
