Welcome. I am Lauren Burke
I offer 121 tuition
My education was fantastic; I was lucky enough to attend Ribston Hall High School where I achieved 12 GCSE’s A – C including Maths, English and Science, alongside 4 A – Levels in Government and Politics, History, Sociology and Citizenship.
My passion for teaching and learning really grew whilst I was at Nottingham Trent University reading Sociology where I graduated with a 2:1 BA Hons. The assignments I had to undertake as part of this course made me realise that education is such an important aspect of our lives and can really impact on our future.
I believe that schools do a fantastic job of teaching children; however, private sessions can consolidate everything that has been learnt, tackle tricky topics and really boost their confidence.
After moving back to Gloucester, I knew that teaching was the right career path as I am so passionate about it! I put an advert on the internet about tutoring sessions for the 11+ grammar school test, summer holiday sessions and preparing for the GCSE exams the following summer. Immediately I was inundated with calls, booking in sessions every day and meeting so many wonderful families.
After doing some research into private tutoring, I realised this was a very expensive service and seemed to be a luxury for families who could afford it. This really disappointed me as I strongly believe education should be accessible to all, no matter your background.
Working with children is fantastic, they really warm to me, feeling at ease and really ready to achieve their goals. I have had the privilege of working with all ages, abilities, subjects and academic levels which has given me a wealth of experience.
