As a Teacher and (senior) Examiner within the IB, I am a well-qualified, experienced and knowledgeable teacher and I've been tutoring privately for almost 20 years. I consider myself a lifelong learner, and I am currently completing my dissertation for my MSc, which is exploring 'Girls in STEM'. I also have my own Education Consultancy Business, based in Cambourne, but working with clients from across the world.

Removed offers a wide range of educational services and products including:
- schooling and schools advice (UK and international schooling, private and state education)
- teacher training and workshops (schools and teacher training centres)
- student workshops
- one-to-one consultation (for school leaders and teachers)
- Further Education guidance
- academic research in education
- private tutoring and study skills
- development of learning materials and educational resources.
- coursework authentication for home-schooled/ re-sit candidates

Although I have left full-time teaching, I still stay very much involved with various educational institutions and charitable organisations. I am a Founding Director on the board for an International School in India and a 'parent host' for international students.

Despite my own learning disabilities, I have consistently achieved the highest grades in my education, from a collection of As and A*s at GCSE and A Level (many years ago now!) to grades of 'Distinction' at university.
I live in Bedfordshire but work in both Cambridge and London during the week. I have two dogs and enjoy volunteering in my local community.

Tutoring Approach

I aim to bring out the best in every learner and so I always personalise every lesson to the individual student. I have a direct and honest, yet supportive and friendly approach to teaching. As an experienced teacher and examiner, I know what is needed to pass assessments. However, naturing a love for learning is my priority, and aim to encourage enthusiasm and enjoyment in my tutoring sessions.
