I am a Postgraduate qualified enthusiastic Teacher. I specialise in teaching English and preparing children for Entrance Exams. I have over 18 years teaching experience and worked as a lead English teacher at various schools and as an assessor at university. I now run my own successful tutoring business and continue to work in education to ensure that I keep my skills up to date!

I try to excel at what I do and attain positive results. I enjoy teaching English and sharing my love of the subject.

I am qualified to teach Mainstream and Special Educational Needs. I work towards improving and increasing a pupil's level and so far every single one has increased their level and exceeded expectations! Pupils improve skills and progress. I devise personal learning plans for each individual.

I teach children how to maximise their marks at school and exams. I help them to increase their speed without losing accuracy.

I enjoy finding different and innovative strategies to teach and ensure that my student is going to achieve the very best. Teaching is more than a job to me and I have the skills to help your child succeed.

All of the children who completed Entrance Exams have been successful. Some stay with me to ensure that they maintain a good standard of Education. Due to the children's success I have a couple of spaces so please do contact me as soon as you can to reserve your space.

Tutoring Experience

I have been employed as a Teacher/Lecturer for nearly 20 years. I have worked as class teacher following the National Curriculum and been lead English teacher at various state and independent schools. I have also lectured at FE Colleges and worked in the Supported Learning Department teaching young people with learning disabilities including Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ASD.

I have been Tutoring at home for a few years and keep up to date with Entrance Exam requirements to ensure that every one of my students is successful.

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, Old Palace, the Sutton Grammar Schools (boys and girls), St. Olave's and Dulwich College.

I have been continuously trained for over 18 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 a teacher, an Education Consultant and given private tuition (paid by the authorities) specifically to help 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.

I run workshops to teach Teachers and Parents the different methods to use to maximise learning.
I have an enhanced DBS/CRB certificate.

Tutoring Approach

I maintain a positive approach to instil a love of learning. I work hard to ensure that each child will have a happy and successful learning journey, to develop their skills, abilities and increase their self esteem.

I use different methods to suit each individual. I am being regularly trained at work on the best methods of teaching, assessing, producing resources, etc. I try to make learning FUN! I assess your child regularly to check that they are learning successfully. I devise a learning plan specifically to help them to progress. I make lessons as interesting as possible to maintain a child's attention and motivation.

I use a variety of resources to suit each individual's requirements. I carry out assessment to ensure that what is being taught is understood.

I have a high retention rate due to the children's success in continuing to increase their level and improve their standard.
