Personal Description:

A highly recommended and experienced 30 year old tutor, I have worked as a tutor for over eight years with great success. My current prices reflect my high demand as a tutor. I specialise in tutoring towards the North London 11+ and 7+ examinations; particularly for the following schools: Highgate, Channing, City of London, South Hampstead, Francis Holland, Henrietta Barnett, Dame Alice Owen, Queens, Northbridge House, Forest, among others.

I am currently tutoring seven students towards the 2017 11+ examination and one towards the 7+ exam. Most of their parents have contacted me following word of mouth recommendation.

Two of my 11+ students recently received full academic scholarships to top North London private schools, for September 2016 entry. The remainder of my eight 11+ students all received offers from every school they applied to - and so all have been able to accept offers with their first choice of schools. Additionally, I helped a university student achieve a 1st Class Honours degree in English literature from Bristol University, and countless other students expand their knowledge base, grow confident in their writing and mathematical skills, and reap the rewards of academic success.

My strengths as a tutor lies in my long experience of teaching, as well as my own writing, communication, organisational skills. I have a large number of resources (academic books, secondary sources and past papers) to use with students. I makes lessons as fun, engaging and interactive as possible, getting to know the individual learning styles of my students and basing lessons around what would teach them the most.

I have an excellent academic record myself. I gained an 11+ scholarship to City of London School for Girls; 9 A*s at GCSE level; 4 A's at A level and the highest 1st Class BA Honours degree in English Literature from the University of Warwick in 2009.

Due to high demand, I can only teach students who are able to travel to me. Weekday evenings and weekends are all possible.

Tutoring Experience:

I have eight years worth of tutoring experience, and have taught a large number of students, from primary to A Level, PGCE level and adult learners. I specialise in examination preparation, particularly towards the 7+ and 11+ examinations for central London private schools (CLSG, Channing, Highgate, Francis Holland, South Hampstead, Henrietta Barnet, Queens, etc). I work systematically with tutees to help strengthen their skills and cover any gaps in their knowledge. I have access to a large number of academic resources in order to help tutees with revision, coursework and exam preparation.

I also help build up the confidence of my tutees to put them in the strongest position for passing exams and gaining the best possible marks. Many students struggle with unhelpful learning strategies for years; I have tried and tested methods for success.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a very friendly, organised and supportive tutor. I make lessons as engaging, fun and interactive as possible - using visual aids, creative tools and utilising the child's ideas, whilst sticking firmly to the brief/curriculum. I believe that tutors should encourage children, understand what methods work for them, and help children develop their ideas. The educational process should be enjoyable and fulfilling, bolstering a child's confidence.

I am able to adapt my approach to tutoring in order to suit the bespoke needs of my tutees. I build strong working relationships with my students and am flexible when it comes to booking lessons (I work out a time to best suit my students/their parents on a week by week basis).
