EXPERIENCED HOME TUTOR OF MATHS GCSE, 11+ ENTRANCE EXAMS, VERBAL REASONING, MATHS, ENGLISH, FRENCH, GERMAN AND SPANISH. I also specialise in tuition for home schooled students.
I have an honours degree in Modern Languages and feel very passionate about language learning. I believe you live a new life for every language you learn. I have lived in France and Germany where I became fluent in the respective languages and I taught myself Spanish, then went on to gain a diploma in Spanish with the Open University. I taught at a grammar school where I gained experience in Maths GCSE teaching, as well as languages. I have now been tutoring Maths at GCSE level for the last six years.

I have been preparing students for the 11+ exams for 4 years and have an excellent pass rate. I have all the resources and experience required to help your child pass the 11+. I am a friendly, confident person who really enjoys teaching and encouraging others to reach their full potential.

Tutoring Experience

I have 10 years experience of private tuition and home schooling including Maths up to GCSE, 11+ Verbal Reasoning, English and Maths for entrance exams. I also have my own website where you can read testimonials from my students.

Tutoring Approach

I always plan several activities per lesson, as well as a retest of what was learnt the previous lesson. Lessons are fun and interactive, and relevant to each student's requirements. For language tuition, I place an equal importance on vocabulary and grammar so that a student is quickly able to construct sentences in a foreign language, with emphasis on conversational ability. I set homework (including vocab learning, to build up a good basis of words) and then test the student each lesson to measure progress.
I am very good at explaining things and easy to get along with. I like to encourage students and I believe that anyone can learn a language, no matter your age, ability or previous knowledge.
For 11+ tuition, I use Bond, CGP and GL Assessment resources. My lessons are based around teaching students how to complete each section of the 11+ exam, including Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Reading Comprehension. We work towards an 85% pass rate and I set the student regular mock exams in order to report progress to parents.
