I am a very busy Wirral-based tutor with a First Class Honours Degree in Teaching, Learning and Mentoring, currently tutoring 25 children a week, aged 5 and upwards. I worked at an inner-city primary school for eight years and have been tutoring privately for the past five years. I can supply multiple outstanding references. I have some spaces coming free from July 2018. Please contact me for details. Please notes: my prices start at £25/hour, please check for details as per your requirements.
My strengths lie in identifying your child’s weak areas and then addressing them. I can provide you with many references and testimonials from the parents of the children that I tutor. I have moved children from the bottom of the class to the top and helped children to pass entrance exams that they have previously failed to fee-paying and selective schools on the Wirral and in Chester. I am passionate about education and hate to see any child fall behind in school.
I work with a broad spectrum of children, from the state and private sector, and more recently, young adults who are trying to access further education but need additional support in English and Maths. I am currently being funded as a private tutor to work within the school setting. I am also a teacher-author, I produce all my own resources for the children that I teach and sell my resources on-line.
I am passionate about education and do whatever I can to help a child learn.
I can also provide an assessment of your child with extensive written feedback if you do not wish to commit to regular tutoring but simply wish to understand where their problems may lie. This assessment takes places over 1/2 hours and costs £100 with the written report.
I also have spaces available during the holidays. Tutoring over the long summer break can be extremely beneficial for your child and they can make considerable progress during this time. I give a discount if you book more than one lesson per week.
Please note: I require one lesson in advance as a deposit, which is non-refundable if a lesson is cancelled by the parent with less than 24 hours’ notice. This is payable at the first lesson.
I have taught whole classes and groups, as well as providing support on an individual basis. I have proven success moving children forward with their reading through phonics teaching and have, over the years taught countless children to read. I am passionate about securing their reading skills, as without them, the whole curriculum can be inaccessible.
I am especially dedicated to helping children who have problems with maths. As somebody who struggled with maths as a child, I feel I have a good understanding of the difficulties some children face and I have an enormous amount of patience! I receive great feedback from parents who see their children improve in this area.
I look for gaps in learning, fill them and don't move on until the child is secure, happy and confident. I am very thorough. I know the importance of self-esteem and have been fortunate to see this grow in children many times and witness the impact on their confidence, happiness and ultimately, their learning.
