Hello, my name is Cora and I delighted to introduce myself to you as the Area Advisor for Bristol, which is a role that I so enjoy. I enjoy managing the team of tutors in this region and I love to build strong and long-lasting positive relationships with parents and children. I am very aware of the different ways that we all absorb learning and the importance of teaching to inspire and build self-confidence.
As well as being a qualified teacher, I am also a parent of two young children. Within our family, my husband and I aim to cultivate a culture of kindness, warmth and respect – affecting how we treat each other and our children – and this positive attitude helps all of us. This is something I am committed to practising in my work through my relationships with colleagues, with parents and children and the team of tutors in this region.
What I particularly love about being an Area Advisor and Tutor Manager for Home-School Tutoring is to be able to help students and parents alike by providing the ‘best fit’ tutor who is most suited to the needs of the child, student or adult. I pride myself on recruiting a team of tutors in this region who share my passion for learning and who adapt their tutoring to the student’s individual needs and requirements. Being freed from the constraints of a formal classroom, our tutors are able to identify and teach to each individual’s ‘hook’ and by finding what inspires our students, we are able to break down barriers to learning and facilitate progress.
I have a background in the arts, originally training as a costume designer, before training as a teacher. I have continued to work on projects in my spare time and find that these skills allow me to think and work creatively in my teaching too.
I look forward to growing our tutor team with more wonderful committed tutors in this area, for all levels and subjects. We want to help more students of all ages build their confidence, enjoy their learning and fulfil their goals.
Whether you are looking for a tutor or are interested in becoming a tutor yourself, please do get in touch and I look forward to being able to help you!
We aim to be able to help our clients with all their learning needs, whatever subject or level is required and whatever age the pupil.
This includes offering the main core subjects of :
Maths, English, Sciences (Chemistry, Physics, Biology ) and modern languages such as French and Spanish.
We also help with:
- learning difficulties and special needs for any age including dyslexia
- learning English as a second language
- SATs, Common Entrance, GCSE, AS Levels, A levels, and Advanced Higher learning
- 11 plus ( 11+) entrance exams
- Adult learning
We are therefore always keen to hear from good teachers and tutors who would like to register with us throughout this region, so that we are able to have tutors available for the various subjects and tutoring needs requested in each of the various towns we cover. Please make contact with Cora either by the Enquiry Form or by email or phone.
Maths Tutoring Success!
We found out today that Ben has moved up in his Maths group! All thanks to the extra tutoring I’m sure. Looking forward to passing the good news on to Claudia, our tutor, tomorrow. (Elaine, parent – Maths – GCSE, year 11 – Longwell Green)
Confidence Building in English GCSE
The trial session with Jakes’ tutor, Christine, went very well, and Jake is keen to continue with further sessions. I’m sure he will gain confidence in the subject as time goes on. I think they will work well together. Thank you for arranging this for us. (Lucy, parent – English – GCSE, year 11 – Nailsea)
Our thanks to such good Tutors!
I just wanted to say how much Noah enjoyed his tuition session with Rebecca on Friday. He seemed so interested in everything she was teaching him, he was telling everyone all the new facts he learnt about snakes. We look forward to the next one! (Matthew, parent)
Thank you for being such a creative, supportive and understanding tutor to Annabelle. She has improved so much and I’m certain that your caring, gentle approach to her learning goals is the main reason for this. (Nia, parent)
‘Thank you to our tutors’ from two Bristol families
‘It was a joy to hear Maisy last night. She enjoyed the lesson and really connected with Katie – that is half the battle we feel. For Maisy to no longer dread Maths as she has done for so many years will be an enormous relief to all of the family (as well as Maisy) and we look forward to seeing Katie next week and for sometime to come.’ (from a Bristol parent)
‘We are so enjoying having Beth tutor Evie. It’s having a really positive effect already on her confidence and approach to her learning.’ (from a Bristol parent)
A wonderful experience
Finn has enjoyed the sessions so much and has come along to each one so willingly, despite being very reticent on day one! He’s clearly enjoyed them and we feel he’s made great progress in such a short time. It has been such a wonderful experience for us all as his general approach to doing any work previously had been very negative.’ (from his Mother, Laura)
English and writing progress
‘What you have achieved with James has been amazing. You’ve managed to get him not only interested in writing but actually able to put pen to paper independently. Thank you for all your help.’ (from Martha, parent)
Such a successful tutoring approach
‘Cora’s approach as a tutor was a joy to watch. She created a balance of activities and changed her approach to suit the speed of progress.
The techniques Cora taught to decode words for reading and maths have continued to be of benefit during this academic year and we are booking more sessions for this summer holiday. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Cora. She has a very professional, kind and fun approach and has a great understanding of education and how children learn.’ (Parent, Elly)
A lovely tutor
‘It was fab to meet Cassie; she was very positive and professional and Pippa said the session was lots of fun. So a big thank you to you and Cassie for helping set this up. I know it’s going to be a great help to Pippa.’ (Parent , Beth)
Private tutoring so helpful and lessons enjoyed
Our grandson Alfie was not a very confident little boy before he started school so we enquired about private tutoring. Cora made him feel at ease straight away and they hit it off immediately.
Alfie always felt very relaxed and comfortable with her as she made it fun so it was never a chore for him. He came on leaps and bounds. His concentration and focus improved, he was always so excited and he looked forward to his lessons. A year on he still remembers and talks about her and the learning they did together. I would certainly recommend Cora to everyone. (sent in by Charlotte )
