Annabel is a professional and capable tutor who has many years of experience working with children and teenagers. Highly motivated, creative and intuitive, she puts enjoyment at the heart of every lesson and believes everybody has the potential to improve and excel. Annabel has an enhanced DBS (CRB) clearance and also has a certificate in 'Level 3 Safeguarding Children'.

Annabel effectively tailors every lesson to the individual and is able to utilise her skills in order to ensure every tutee is given tuition to suit their personal learning style. Annabel enjoys the challenge and subsequent rewards that come from working with a wide age range. Specialist tuition for those with dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia (as well as related conditions) is offered to encourage confidence and proficiency when learning new ideas and concepts.

IMPORTANT NOTES (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)

  • Most sessions are 30-minutes in length, although 20-minute sessions will sometimes be offered. It is up to the tutor to decide which session length is suitable for your child, whether visiting or online.
  • All 30-minute online sessions for UK-based students are £16, payable in blocks of five (£80) after the initial session. 30-minute online sessions for international students (with no UK bank account) are £18, payable in blocks of five (£90). Most visiting lessons are charged at £16 for 30-minutes, but this is dependent on whether you are willing to commit to an online lesson if your child cannot attend - this will be discussed in more detail when you enquire.
  • General home practice activities are recommended and included as part of the lesson fee; if customers want specific homework set and marked outside of lesson time, a fee of £4 extra per lesson is added.
  • Unfortunately, Annabel does not cover specific entrance exam tuition as all learning is tailored to develop general skills in English and/or maths. Many children who have studied with Annabel have gone on to sit entrance exams with great success, but tuition does not focus on specific skills for these assessments.
  • Tuition is carried out in Annabel's specialist venue, or online. All tutees are entitled to a 15-20 minute induction session (free) before committing to lessons.
  • Sessions include lots of spontaneity and Annabel frequently gives fun surprise activities. Although this approach suits most children, Annabel has found those who require a lot of structure and predictability and/or have sensory sensitivities (e.g. they struggle with loud sounds and lots of visual stimulation) may not benefit from the unique style. Please be aware of this when enquiring as Annabel will recommend another more suitable tutor if she feels she is not the best fit for your child.​​
