Thinking of Having English Tuition for Your Child? REFERENCE “It has been a total joy and pleasure working together with Lesley for English tuition with our children. They have benefitted greatly from her totally charming however extremely informative approach which has resulted in our children fully engaged and conscientious in their work. We have been pleasantly surprised at the content and creativity that has been nurtured in their writing. A visit to Lesley on a Saturday morning is a must!” Milan & Sheena ( August 2017) Below are examples of creative writing produced by some of my tutees.
The Loch Ness Monster by CW aged 9 It swims like a vicious sea creature With its razor sharp teeth Whacking its tail and making enormous bubbles Its long neck like the head of a snake Eyes as big as satsumas Tiny, teeny fish trying to escape Sharks trying to attack but too feeble The Loch Ness Monster still living, ready to hunt you!
Bitter,cold wind brushed against my face. Blue skies faded their colour into the lilac pink of evening. I heard the lullaby of birds tweeting in the trees above... And the snowdrops shoot and bloom out of the soil showing me the signs of spring. I watched that evening as the pink faded away To a dark blue, as the night came. by MW aged 11.

Summer Heat Chattering, droning, tinkling like wind chimes; crickets. Bright, vibrant, white heat, blistered, droplets of blood. Rough, scorching, gritty, prickling. Sun cream, grilling flowers, market spices and sewers. The taste of the sea and sun cream.
