Information About Claire - Brentwood trainer - (12 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Claire:
Retired from full-time teaching, I was Head of Department of Information Technology at secondary level and have over 30 years experience of IT and Computing teaching.I have had a great deal of success at teaching at GCSE level and A level and have seen several of my pupils achieve the very top results in the country. I am married with three grown up children.
I have had three pupils achieve “top five” status (ie top five individual pupils, not merely top 5%) in the country at GCSE level – two for ICT and one for BCS. A very large majority of my pupils at GCSE level – in ICT and BCS – have achieved grade A or A* – this from pupils of mixed abilities. Similarly a very large majority of my pupils at A-level Computing have gained grade A or B. Of my A-level pupils who have gone on to study Computing and related subjects at university, many have gained first class honours and some have been awarded “best in year” and “best overall” prizes at UCL and Imperial College. During the last two years, as well as doing A level teaching in school, I have been providing private tuition to adults.
I have the ability to communicate effectively to pupils of all abilities. I make a point of ensuring that pupils always have the understanding they need, and will keep working at a problem, tackling it in different ways as necessary, until I know that they have grasped it. Having worked in the IT industry before coming to teaching I am a very capable programmer, and so am able to teach this skill from a background of experience which many teachers – at least when I first set out in teaching – did not have.

My daughter was so disheartened with maths but Claire is so positive and calm by nature that she is starting to enjoy the subject. It is an absolute pleasure to listen to the session and from day one I have been bowled over by Claire’s impact on my daughter’s learning.
I would not hesitate to recommend or use again in the future for my other child.
The process in organizing the lessons went very efficiently and Claire is always very prompt with her replies on any questions etc.
My son has only had a few lessons so far but already I can see some positive plans in place. He is already starting to benefit from the extra tuition and more
importantly the guidance on how to deal with the exams.
Many thanks for your help.
