Personal Description:

Not only a well-educated graduate, professional Teacher but more importantly a patient, stoic Mum with children of her own. I am highly knowledgeable of conditions such as ASD, ADD, ADHD Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia through personal experience and through working in the education and voluntary sectors. I have good knowledge of Primary education from Reception through to SATs in Year 6, as well as studying rimary French under Universite de Besancon tutelage. My main working career has been split between my former years working in consultancy for PwC and KPMG, and my education work since 2003 have been in managing a History Department after many years as a HTeacher of History and French in Secondary schools in the Independent and State sectors. My recent experience is in tutoring due to a career break to manage my own children's high-level needs in Primary school.

Tutoring Experience:

Qualified to teach Secondary Education in 2003, as well as primary in 2007; cut my teeth working as a History and French Teacher from 2003 to 2012 in a top class Boys' school where I learned to deal with all ranges of children's abilities and attitudes to education; became a teacher trainer who helped train newly-qualified and trainee teachers from the London Universities, such as UCL. Since then, became a Head of Department in History at Private and State schools until moving to South London in 2015. I am a History Examiner for OCR, EDEXCEL and AQA, receive regular training to be completely proficient with levelling essays at GCSE and A Level and know the exam system inside out for History. A good number of previous students/parents can be approached once details are purchased.
