Welcome to my Website!
Hello, My name is Stephanie Sybliss. I've been tutoring for over ten years and I absolutely love what I do!
I'm a rare type of tutor because this is my full-time job. Most tutors work part time; often fitting tutoring in between their 'proper job.' However I've found that in order to hone my craft, I work at this for a living, so that I can get the best out of you.
I enjoy seeing my students; whether they are adult learners, children or young people thrive in ways that they never thought possible and I still get a kick out of seeing a student get that 'light bulb moment' when they understand something they just didn't get before.
Whether you're just enquiring; or looking for a tutor that can give you a personalised, fun and engaging tutoring experience, please contact me. I hope I can help to empower your learning experiences.
I am a passionate and confident Tutor who has a BA Honours Degree in Literature and holds a Full Enhanced DBS Certificate. I specialise in all aspects of English; including English Literature, English Language and Creative Writing. I am a published writer and blogger, so I can tutor and give advice and assistance on how to write creatively.
Having worked for a number of years in schools, as well as tutoring adults has enabled me to become exceptionally proficient at preparing learners to become more knowledgeable in their work, as well as becoming confident when sitting their exams.
As a tutor, I have become especially adept when assisting students in preparation to sit their GCSE English Literature and English Language exams, as I am familiar with the new 9-1 GCSE English Literature and English Language Exam Specifications, so I can tutor to address this and provide tailor-made tutoring and advice to suit specific areas of the curriculum.
Adult learners who wish to become more fluent in English and for whom English is an additional language, come to me to receive lessons; or when studying for their IELTS Exams.
In addition to this; I can give help and advice on the Functional Skills needed to write job applications and CV's, as well as assistance when writing 'A' Level, degree and dissertation essays.
I believe that being patient is key when assisting students on their learning journey, as well as having a mutual respect for the difficulties when understanding certain concepts. I absolutely welcome nervous or shy students or adult learners to tutor with me in a quest for them to be able to reach their full potential!
I look forward to the opportunity of my prospective tutees thriving in their learning and becoming part of their journey towards academic success.
Please contact me to discuss your specific tutoring needs.

In 2020 - 2021, I have managed to assist EIGHT of my students in their 11+ English tests to secure places into the following schools:
Wallington High School for Girls, The Tiffin Girls’ School, Tiffin Boys School, Nonsuch High School for Girls, Sutton High School, Whitgift School and Old Palace of John Whitgift.
I have also had All THREE of my GCSE students become successful in their ENGLISH LITERATURE exams and were awarded grades that were all a STRONG PASS from GRADES 5-8 and a STRONG PASS in ENGLISH LANGUAGE from GRADES 4-7.
I have tutored ONE A-LEVEL student who successfully received a GRADE B in ENGLISH LITERATURE; after a she was previously given a predicted grade of C!
She has been accepted into CARDIFF UNIVERSITY, a RUSSELL GROUP university and will be reading politics for her degree. https://russellgroup.ac.uk/about/our-universities/
Finally, I have seen at least FIVE of my students in KEY STAGE 2 and KEY STAGE 3, successfully understand how to write a P.E.E (Point, Evidence and Explain) response to COMPREHENSION questions and demonstrate their fantastic CREATIVE WRITING skills in my tutoring lessons!
I am extremely proud of all my students (past and present and regardless of their abilities); who have been working really hard and under challenging circumstances due to the Covid pandemic; I know it has not been easy. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! For being keen and enthusiastic learners, who always make me smile and I have enjoyed tutoring immensely!
I especially want to say a BIG THANK YOU!! To all the parents/carers/clients; who have entrusted me to steer their learners into a more positive phase in their education. I will continue to do my best to carry on the work with them to empower their successes.

"Stephanie has tutored my son Alex for well over a year. She has been excellent at preparing Alex for his GCSE exam and has been very patient and extremely helpful all the way through. She always responds very quickly to any queries we have and is very reliable. Thanks for all of your help."
Monica S, A-Level Student
"Highly recommend, really helpful and professional! Stephanie really does care about your education by ensuring you have all the resources/notes that you need, as well as properly marking your essays from A-Z which I never got from a teacher!"
"Since having Steph as my tutor my essay writing has dramatically improved and I’ve gone from receiving a 2:1 in university essays, to receiving a 1st on my last four essays, what I learn in lessons with Steph can be applied to all future essays making this experience so worthwhile. She’s brilliant!!!"
