English (Foreign Language)
I am a Post graduate qualified Teacher, Lecturer and Psychologist. I have over 18 years teaching experience. I am currently working part time at a private (independent) school. I am a Specialist/Lead English teacher. I have worked for Croydon, Bromley, Southwark & Lewisham Education Authorities as a Consultant and Teacher.
I attain results from every child or adult that I teach because I try to ensure that I make learning interesting and fun. I help them to keep motivated and parents tell me that they no longer have to argue with their child when they want them to do some extra work. I have had many positive comments from parents telling me they complete their extra studies and homework with less complaint!
I am qualified to teach Mainstream and Special Educational Needs. I work towards improving and increasing a pupil's level and every single one has increased their level and exceeded their school teacher's expectations! Pupils improve skills and progress. I devise personal learning plans in consultation with the student and/or parent. I give information about Entrance Exams and teach the child strategies to maximise their marks at school and exams. I give them past papers and help them to increase their speed without losing accuracy.
I enjoy finding different and innovative strategies to teach and ensure that my learner is going to achieve the very best. I am a qualified Psychologist and Counsellor. Teaching is more than a job to me and I have the skills to help you or your child succeed.
Every child that I have taught has improved and progressed and got into the school of their choice and the majority have been offered Scholarships. If required I can help you with the application forms including Scholarship and Bursary application too (extra fee applies).
I have 4 of my own children. The two eldest attend top universities, my son passed entrance exams for Whitgift and Trinity. He was offered Scholarships. My youngest daughter is at Primary School.
I am an Assistant Scout leader and was a Girl Guide helper for many years before that.
I work part time as a teacher at an independent school. The main subject that I teach is English. I have helped all of my pupils to progress to the correct level and most have progressed to a higher level. Every child that has come to me to prepare themselves for Entrance Exams has succeeded in getting into the school of their choice. I have experience preparing students for Whitgift, Trinity, the Sutton Grammar Schools and Dulwich College to name a few.
I have been continuously trained for over18 years to help me to successfully teach children, young people and adults; including those with learning difficulties and disabilities.
I have worked for many Education Authorities as an Education Consultant and given private tuition (paid by the authorities) specifically helping students who have fallen behind at school due to emotional, behavioural problems or/and having a learning disability.
I worked for Croydon, Southwark and Lewisham Colleges as a Lecturer and Coordinator. All of my students have passed their courses and exams.
I run workshops to teach Teachers and Parents the different strategies to use when teaching people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities including ASD, dyslexia, ADHD, etc. I also run short courses on how teachers and lecturers can use different programs and innovative resources to maintain their student's interest and motivation.
At present I have one space left as I already tutor a number of students at mainstream schools and those who have stayed with me after passing their Entrance Exams in order to continue to increase their level and/or maintain their Scholarships. I am also currently tutoring children who are preparing for Entrance Exams at Westminster, Whitgift, Trinity, Wallington Grammar and Dulwich College.
I use different strategies to teach in the most successful way. I am being regularly trained at work on the best methods of teaching, assessing, producing resources, etc. I try to make learning FUN!
I use a variety of resources and methods to suit each individual's requirements. I carry out continuous assessment to ensure that what is being taught is understood. I like to incorporate the learner's individual interests into lessons to ensure that they have an enjoyable time learning and stay motivated. One of the things I do is get the student to work on past papers and I teach them how to maximise their marks, keep calm and focussed.
I give feedback on progress and advice on how to continue to work at home and improve further. I continuously find strategies to help you or your child succeed. I am very sensitive to a child and adult's needs and in finding out the best methods to help them learn and progress. I also provide homework.

I’m taking a little break due to personal circumstances but I am certain that I will be back.
It is an absolute joy to teach you and I am looking forward to resuming lessons after your break.
Wishing you all the best,
It is an absolute pleasure to teach your son.
Daphne has shown a real interest in the childrens school and what level of learning is expected for their individual ages. We are now focusing on these criteria so that both children an meet, if not exceed, the standards set.
As you said I did try to offer you other options for compensation and I hope you find someone suitable.
My son at first was unsure about having a tutor but after a few sessions with Daphne he seems much more happier about continuing to have Daphne.
Daphne explains thing in great detail and is kind and patient and I think this is why my son is happy.
I'd 100% recommend her.
I am suprised at how much I now love to reading English Classics. It's a big jump achieving and enjoying reading English books.
I would love to recommend Daphne to everyone who wants to learn English from scratch or to be more confident.
It is a pleasure to teach you.
I am so glad that I have contributed to your new love of our wonderful English literature.
I am looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks.
