You can receive personal support and guidance from Natasha with Scrbbly Tuition.
I now offer private tuition sessions online through Scrbbly. You can book in regular slots with me, or just schedule sessions as and when needed.
Currently I have very limited availability, but you are welcome to get in touch to see if there's a space available for tuition. If I have any last minute cancellations I may also be able to fit you in at short notice.
1-1 Tuition Pricing: £55/hr
Group Tuition Pricing: £20/hr (per student - minimum 3 per session)
For students who are unable to afford my hourly rate, I provide group sessions where I tutor small classes of 3-8 students. You can choose whether you want one off or regular sessions, and also whether you need help with Language or Literature.
To express interest, feel free to drop me a message to find out more.
Please not that I ask for payment 1 day in advance of the lesson; this is because I require 24hrs notice for changes or cancellations to booked lessons so that I can plan my schedule in advance and help as many students as possible.

Experience and Qualifications
I have been an online teacher and private tutor since 2012. During this time I have also worked as Head of English for an online home school, and I am currently an AQA English examiner. I work with students from all around the world, from early Secondary School (aged 11) up to Degree and Masters level.
I have a First Class BA Hons in English from the University of Bristol (graduated 2012), and a Distinction grade in my TEFL qualification, which was an intensive 140hr course with TEFL Cambridge. I am fully DBS checked and can provide references upon request.
Learning and teaching is more than a job; for me, it’s a way of life. I have a total enthusiasm for learning of all kinds, and I enjoy passing this on to my students. I have an adaptable approach to teaching, because I believe each student learns best in his or her own way. My tuition sessions will always work with you and go at your pace to make sure you’re getting the most out of our time together.
I have a great track record of quickly getting students to engage with their subjects and dramatically boost their grades. Many of my students have gone from D grades to As and A*s within a few months. Also, in the past 4 years I have received exclusively 5* reviews across three different tuition platforms. This is because I help students to learn in their own way and also to become self-critical - to understand what’s good and bad about their work, and how to improve.
I provide online private tuition via Skype or Google Hangouts. Whether you need help improving your technique, understanding your texts or figuring out how to tackle essays and exams, my tuition sessions will hugely improve your confidence, your writing and your grades. I don't put limits on expectations of students; if you are motivated and care about your work, I will help you to get the highest possible grades.

Marking and Proofreading
If you require specific feedback on essays and practise exam papers, I am happy to mark and/or proofread your answers for you. This will help you understand what level you’re currently working at and how to improve.
There are two options: I can just mark the paper according to your mark scheme, or I can mark it and give you detailed feedback on how to improve and why you are at the given grade.
- Please note that I will only mark full exam papers, not individual exam questions as it is not an efficient use of my time to mark individual questions
- £30 per exam paper for marking
- £55 per exam paper for marking and detailed feedback notes on each question
- £30 per 1000 words for coursework, NEAs, EPQs or university essay assessments
- for other marking, editing or proofread enquiries please message me and I will give you a bespoke price rate for your project
To request marking or proofreading, or for further information, drop me an email: [email protected]
You will be provided with the motivation, inspiration and focus that you need to meet your deadlines.
