Hampton English Coaching

Welcome to Hampton English Coaching! I'm a fully trained and highly experienced English teacher. I've taught at the top schools you want your son or daughter to attend, including Hampton Boys' and The Abbey Girls' School in Reading.

I can give your child the one-to-one attention needed for exam success.



Why invest in tutoring?

A good tutor is a great investment for parents. Many - including myself - are highly experienced former full-time teachers with proven academic track records alongside examining experience across the age range. English tuition from an experienced, qualified teacher helps a variety of students in various of ways. Younger students need help with their overall literacy, reading and enthusiasm for the subject. They benefit from regular one to one or small group sessions, with frequently set homework and targeted feedback. Secondary school students thrive on the academic reinforcement of one to one, gaining confidence in written and spoken communication. I can help your child deliver their strongest and most representative performance in the 10+, 11+, 12+ and Common Entrance exams. I am very familiar with all the main UK and international GCSE boards, A level and IB courses. Underpinning all tuition is my goal of encouraging wider reading, broader minds and a deeper love of literature. Whatever your child's targets and aspirations, I can help them!



How does your tuition work?

The average session lasts one hour and costs £ 46- £ 50 per hour, depending on the age and needs of the student. Block bookings of ten hours, holiday booster sessions and even smaller 'booster bundles' of 5 hours are all available. Advance booking is needed as I carry a waiting list. I tailor my provision for each child and academic level. For the upper KS2 age range, we focus on English and Verbal Reasoning. I alternate lessons between an hour on each the main key areas: focussed reading, text reading skills, inferencing skills, acquiring and applying new vocabulary in creative writing, planning, redrafting, writing and editing creative writing and mastering grammatical and linguistic terminology. I help students become confident writers. Younger entrance exam candidates are also taught the 20 main Verbal Reasoning skills and are guided through exam papers. Older year 9 to year 11 students are supported in a similar way but with more targeted focus on their GCSE Language skills and set GCSE Literary texts, consolidating knowledge and honing exam skills. I teach with a range of resources and, due to the current COV-19 pandemic, I currently offer scheduled regular online tuition using the Zoom and Google platforms, shared interactive worksheets, emailed tasks, slideshows, study guides, films and a host of other useful learning tools to help. Many related or extension resources are available to buy in my online shop.



What other help is available?

I work closely with the student and their parents in order to maximise the chances of success. As I have worked in a variety of top grammar and independent schools, I'm happy to advise parents on which schools would best suit their own son or daughter; you have to find the school to suit the child, not the other way around! I have taught at King Edward's School Bath, The Abbey Girls' and, for 13 years full time, Hampton Boy's School. I am familiar with their different cultures, strengths and systems and can also advise parents who are considering changing their child's school. I am very experienced with the Tiffin, Bucks and Slough Consortium entrance exam systems and have created my own resource bank to help grammar school applicants prepare. Interviews are now an integral part of many school applications. Preparation and support is another service I offer. To date, of the 76 students who were selected for interviews at schools as diverse as Wimbledon High, Kingston Grammar, Wycombe Abbey, Hampton School (years 7,8,9 and 12) Royal Bath High and LEH, all were offered places. 21 of my successful 10+ exam students also went on to gain 11+ scholarships and continue to thrive, remaining above average in already strong year groups as they progress through school . Equally, students who have moved schools within the state system have gone on to secure far higher GCSE results than predicted.

Feedback from Students and Parents

We are so happy with the tuition we have received from Hampton English Coaching. Cassie has been an excellent tutor to our ten-year-old son Andrew. I am happy report that he recently received his offer from St Paul's School. His English responses were singled out for praise. Thank you! Mary, Parent, Teddington
A gem of a teacher. She boosted our daughter Emma's confidence, helped her overcome exam nerves, and deserves our heartfelt thanks. Emma is off to Wimbledon Girls' High in September 2018 and is very excited about her new school. Richard, Parent, Twickenham
Cassie is enthusiastic, making reading fun and her lessons easy to follow. I gained so many new exam tips and got over my time management problem. I ended up with several offers to choose from...and I passed both stages of my Tiffin Boys' exam. I was so pleased to have scored highly in the English! Harry, Student, Kingston-Upon-Thames
We arrived in London from China in order to take up new jobs and be nearer to family. Our son Arthur was falling behind in his English. After only a few months, he was far more confident, had an excellent English accent, and was writing secure compositions. We are so proud of what both Arthur and Cassie achieved. Arthur secured his 13+ place at a top London preparatory school and will start Hampton in a few year's time. Yan, Parent, Kingston-Upon-Thames
