Personal Description:

I have been a learning support teacher in the UK and Middle East for many years, working in schools and privately as a home tutor. For the past seven years I have been working in London. I strongly believe every student is an individual and should be taught accordingly. Some of the families I have worked with have had me work with them for over six years and in two cases, with all four of their children. I think that must be a vote of confidence!

Schools which I have recently successfully coached children for admissions exams include: St Paul's, City, Westminster Choir School, Highgate, Channing, Queens, North London Collegiate School, North Bridge, Forest, Putney, James Aleyn, St. Michael's, St. Aloysius, Haberdasher's, Camden School for Girls, St Mary Magdalene Academy and Portland Place.

I have an Honours degree in Humanities, specialising in English Literature and am available for teaching children weekday evenings and Saturday mornings and for English as a foreign language to adults weekday mornings.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as a private home tutor for over 20 years, mainly with children from 3 - 13 years gaining experience with Special Needs and dyslexic children and children of expat families new to the English curriculum. Over the years I have witnessed many changes in educational policy and I still keep au fait with current trends and curriculum changes.

I have also taught in a total of nine primary schools in Essex, running French Clubs and in one school as their Learning Support Teacher. In Abu Dhabi I taught at the Sheikh Zayed Academy for Girls and privately at home with children of a wide range of nationalities.

My experience of working with adults on spoken and written English, includes Arab ladies in the Middle East and London. Recently, I have taught conversational English to adults from Vietnam, Russia, the Middle East, Ukraine, Ethiopia, Romania and Angola. I have also taught children from all different parts of the world: Australia, USA, Turkey, France, Spain, Germany and many local London children.

Tutoring Approach:

Every student is assessed individually. I think the greatest success comes when the tutor, school and parents all work in unison with the child to consolidate what the child is learning at school. Over many years, I have built up a huge bank of materials for exploring in detail the components needed for successful exam technique for English and maths. For literacy in particular, we work in detail on literary devices writers use, such as metaphor, simile, personification and visual imagery to aid the student with their own creative writing and analysing comprehensions. We can also work on persuasive writing and other sophisticated writing skills.

When teaching adults English as a foreign language, I tailor their needs to their lifestyle and ability. I can also offer English lessons in London whilst we explore the city and act as a chaperone and guide for visitors who wish to learn English exploring the wonderful delights and experiences of London.

I also offer elocution coaching for students who would like to speak with standard English pronunciation.
