Please note: 1:1 availability for school holidays only. Group sessions available now. I am a specialist English teacher and tutor with a Cambridge degree and over 20 years' teaching experience including Head of English in several schools. My whole worklife is dedicated to teaching English - no other subjects and I tutor full-time. At present, I am also writing an English 11+ guide and workbook for a well-known publisher to be released next year. *Please note - prices stated are for individual tuition. I offer group tuition at a cheaper rate. See my company group page (Wonderlearn) on this site *I am fully booked until September 2019 for individual tuition except in the holidays - a limited number of small group spaces available now. I have a passion for English and for passing that knowledge and enthusiasm on to each and every one of my pupils. Having taught for over 20 years in schools, I found that what I really enjoy is developing children on a one-to-one or small group basis. In that environment, I can support and teach on a very personal level, ensuring that I meet the needs of each child specifically and to the highest level. Please be aware that I have no spaces left until at least September 2019 for individual lessons, but I do manage a waiting list, which you can join. However, I am also running 11+ preparation courses in Wallington in the Summer holidays and GCSE revision courses in the Easter holidays. I also run 11+ skills squads groups for years 3-5, groups for years 6-9 and GCSE preparation groups which have limited spaces. Please get in touch for more details!
I am an experienced English teacher of over 20 years and have tutored for 10 of those years, working in a range of state and independent schools. I have taught children from 5-13 years in schools as well as tutoring children for GCSE, entrance exams for the 11+, 13+, Common Entrance and scholarships. Destination schools children have passed include: Wilson's, Wallington Boys' and Girls', Nonsuch, Sutton Grammar, St Olave's, QE Grammar, Whitgift, Trinity, Old Palace, King's College, Wimbledon, St Paul's Boys', Westminster, Eton, Charterhouse, Tonbridge, Caterham, Dulwich College, Reigate, St John's and Epsom College.
I am a dedicated teacher of English who works hard to develop children's skills, knowledge and understanding to become confident and successful learners. My teaching style is friendly and engaging mixed with high expectations. I tailor each lesson to suit the needs of the individual. I provide support and advice to parents so they feel empowered to help their children also. I have a high retaining rate due to the excellent progress and achievements made by my pupils.
