HOW IT WORKS

Eleanor teaches both one-to-one and in group settings.

A core course covers the basic introduction to Eleanor’s unique 6 Part Method and the breakdown of the components that forge solid rhetoric.

As an individual client, Eleanor will meet with you to determine your specific needs then devise both a plan and timeline that will support the learning process as you create your piece of writing. She is available for personal tuition from conception to the final completion of your work.

As a group, Eleanor will create a plan specific to your brief and will curate a mixture of group sessions and one-to-one follow up tuition that meet the needs of the collective. Smaller groups are preferable to large, due to the nature of the work.

Sessions take place in person at a location of your choice or in Eleanor’s London base, with follow-up sessions available on Skype.

ACADEMIC TUTION FOR SCHOOL YEARS

As a private tutor to the academic sector, Eleanor has worked one-to-one with many young people on English Literature and Language, History and Theatre Studies, in essay writing skills and overall organisation for GCSEs, helping pupils gain entrances to schools and pass exams with flying colours.

She specialises in guiding young people through 11+, GCSE and A’Level exams, helping them find the skills for creative writing, the structure of essay writing, the specifics of PEE (also known as PEEL and PEA), and the joy in analysing literature texts.

She assesses each pupil carefully and tailors her teaching style to their needs, always basing her teaching on principles of organisation, ownership of work, independent thinking, logical planning, structure and argument. Eleanor believes that with these tools, a pupil can take themselves anywhere.

She has gathered thousands of hours working with young ones in need of specific support, confidence boosting and a hearty no-nonsense approach. She ABSOLUTELY LOVES working with her pupils, mentoring many into adulthood and building relationships with siblings and treasured families that see her travelling with families around the UK and to France, Germany, the USA and China.

Eleanor’s teaching is based in London and the Bath area and travels for residential placements.
