Personal Description:

Mother to 2 primary-aged children, fully-DBS vetted (on the update register, so it is completely up to date) qualified and experienced Teacher, having taught at both primary and secondary schools in the Public and Private sector. I was a Head of History and Politics until my move to this area. I am a current examiner with Edexcel, OCR and AQA. I am also teacher trained at the University of Besancon (France) to teach French as well as qualified at secondary level to teach History and French to A-level.
Please note that as a teacher I am qualified to teach special needs, including Gifted and Talented students.

Tutoring Experience:

Qualified (QTS)Teacher since 2003; GCSE and A-Level examiner since 2007; worked with children as young as 6 to 19; experienced professionally as well as personal experience in working with children with special needs, such as autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia as well as gifted and talented (I was a Gifted and Talented trainer at a previous school.)

As well as experience in tutoring children for either general catch-up, gaining confidence and getting ahead, my tutoring experience extends to independent and grammar school entrance examinations at 7+, 11+ and 13+. Please note this experience has been for entrance to some of the top schools in North London where I lived prior to October 2015. I am currently tutoring children for entrance to South London schools such as Trinity, Whitgift (where I have worked), Eltham, Alleyn's and Dulwich, where there are variations in admissions. Therefore, I can teach for the English, verbal reasoning and French examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I think my fees justify my results and my approach. I receive excellent feedback, I tailor each lesson afresh to the needs of the parents and children I teach, my students get great results in their examinations and I strive to ensure that nobody feels "rushed" out of the door. However, at weekends, I need to work from home (this is not negotiable) and I only accept payments prior to the lesson by BACS or cash. As I have children who will need to attend after school hours childcare if lessons take place during weekdays. I will ask for payment for a few weeks upfront, so that cancellations will be charged as if a lesson has taken place. Please only agree to tuition if you are willing to accept this. Payment of my details will be taken as agreement to this contract. Other than this, I do not have any particular demands and I am as flexible and reasonable, as I too will reserve the right to cancel the odd lesson, which will not cause any financial losses to you, e.g. school parents evenings, holidays.
