I am an experienced, energetic and above all flexible private tutor with a passion for helping children understand where there have previously been barriers and I see a sense of humour as an invaluable aid!
I am also a professional musician and am relocating my tuition business from London to sing with Truro Cathedral Choir
I have eight years private tuition experience across London in the highly competitive Private entrance exams, as well as at 7+, 10+ and 11+ entry points. I have achieved a very high success rate, with pupils gaining regular access to top London Schools.
Concurrently, I was a member of two tutor agencies, Holland Park Tutors and Greater London Tutors, for whom I also taught group courses in English, maths and Common Entrance practice.
Previously, I undertook supply classroom teaching in London and Gloucester for the year following my PGCE qualification.
I teach students in the UK via Skype and in Asia via the Zoom platform.
I am also a musician and have taught piano, composition and theory since 2004
All children approach learning differently and I tailor my teaching to get the best out of each student's personal outlook on life. This requires a broad and flexible attitude in which getting to know the pupil is paramount.
I provide structured learning goals, targeted homework and weekly feedback to keep both the parent and child happy and fulfilled.
