Commonly Asked Questions


Q. Will my child be suited to a Write! Club? 

All the clubs are specifically designed for bright and quirky children who enjoy story writing. My speciality is in teaching bright children who are shy and lacking self-confidence.  Exceptionally bright children  have a high IQ but this does not always translate into academic success at school. Bright children who struggle with perfectionist tendencies, low self-confidence often benefit from a nurturing approach, in order to bring about positive changes. High achievers can benefit hugely from the creative freedom and personal satisfaction that comes from writing stories.

Q. What makes Creative Hare unique?

As an experienced school teacher, my teaching approach is driven by my belief that given the right conditions every child can increase their confidence and self-belief. Bright, sensitive children in particular can benefit hugely from a nurturing and unique approach. Each child’s approach to learning is individual, so creating the ideal emotional climate and tailored support enables children to find their voice and a love for writing. Establishing the right chemistry within each group is the foundation of my bespoke teaching style.  

Q. What technology do I need for online tuition?

Having a stable internet connection is essential and being as close to your home router as possible is ideal. Please ensure you have downloaded the Zoom App prior to our frst session. You will need to enable your device’s inbuilt microphone and camera. Please note that Bluetooth ear plugs can create an echo and are not recommended for use during sessions. 

Q. What do I need to do before my first online session?

Before each session you will be emailed any relevant  PDFs for the session as well as a Zoom ID which will be password protected. Please ensure your child has lined paper for writing, colouring pencils or an iPad for drawing if they are artistically minded! When your session is due to start simply click on the Zoom link in your email. Please ensure your child is suitably dressed and hydrated, small snacks during a session are absolutely fine and can be helpful to give your child an energy boost.

Q. What are your fees?

Course fees vary depending on their length and duration- please see the current Write! course page for up-to-date pricing information. A free trial is offered for all Write! Clubs. Write! Clubs are currently priced at £25 per child, per session.

Q. Do I have a DBS Check?

Yes, I have a current enhanced DBS certification and I am on the DBS update service. I am also a member of the Tutors Association, the only UK government recognised body for tutoring.

Q. What is your cancellation policy?

24 hours’ notice is required for the cancellation of a Write! Club session. If you cancel within 24 hours of a class commencing, full payment will be required. If the required notice periods are not upheld, full payment will be required. Allowance will be given to clients in exceptional circumstances.
