I have been teaching for 33 years and have been highly successful at gaining high grades for my students. I have been an AQA examiner and have attended numerous training courses on examination technique. I am able to tutor English and Verbal Reasoning for the Kent 11+ test, as well as Spanish to A level and French up to GCSE. Please note that I do not offer Maths for the 11+ as I feel that this is best taught by a Maths specialist, but I am happy to teach alternate weeks if you would like to employ a Maths tutor as well for your son or daughter. I can also offer English at KS2 and KS3 and ESL.
I have been a Head of Department and have taught in both maintained and independent schools during my 33 years of teaching. I was highly respected by both parents and students who appreciated my kind, yet firm and organised approach. I am happy to provide references from local parents whose children I have tutored recently.
My tutoring technique varies according to the student and the level, as each student is an individual. However, as with a class of 30, lessons need to be varied and interesting and, most importantly of all, fun! Two of my previous students started Spanish with me in Year 7 from scratch and came for an hour each week for the next five years, eventually both gaining an A* at GCSE. I like to work closely with you as parents to ensure that you are happy with your child's progress and will always give my time willingly at the end of a lesson to discuss ways of getting the best out of your son or daughter.
Please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss current availability and any queries you might have. I will endeavour to reply within a few hours.
