Personal Description:

Post-graduate female Ex-Head of 2 secondary schools' Humanities Departments, one being public and one private. A History examiner to A-Level since 2003 for Edexcel, CIE, AQA and OCR, Qualified and experienced in teaching History, English and French to year 13. Highly qualified in 3 universities: Middlesex, Lancaster and Besancon (France). Now working with individuals as part of local council’s Home and Hospital Tuition Team, working alongside CAMHS and other decision-making Education bodies, such as schools, paediatricians, speech therapists, etc.

Tutoring Experience:

Worked as a teacher and Head of Department since 2003 in secondary and primary education / schools. Teaching as well as training has benefited my work with SEN through physical needs, conditions, Specific learning difficultues and mental health issues: ASD, ADHD, ADD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, CFS, OCD and more. I am adept and experienced teaching Key Stage 1 and 2 in all areas, e.g. English and Maths, phonics, reading and for SATs purposes and phonics screening tests. For (I)GCSE, I am experienced in teaching English Literature and Language as well as History, French, Business studies and RE. For A Level, I am highly trained in teaching and examiner in History.


As part of my time as a teacher I have been asked to tutor for Entrance Exams, such as 7+, 10+, 11+ and 13+ for my friends. As I have been successful in this, I decided to offer this as a paid tutor. I have enabled all my students to get into either their first or second choice, sometimes with very little time to spare. This has included in selective schools, grammars and private schools. Schools that my students have secured a place include: Henrietta Barnett, Queen Elizabeth Boys, Trinity, Whitgift, Bromley High, Croydon High, Eltham college, Habadasher Askes. Some of my A Level students have secured Oxbridge places to study Law and History.

My teaching experience has enabled me to notice signs where there is a SEN, such as dyslexia and discalculia which had been missed by teachers. Furthermore, I referred a student onto Kuomintang who had been unable to grasp some elementary maths and needed a very back to basics approach. In summary, I do not believe in my profit above student needs.

Tutoring Approach:

Tailored to the needs of the individual through conversation with student and/or parent. Face to face lessons for KS1/2, usually for KS3. Possibility of skype for KS4 and 5 or emailed essay feedback. Ask for details of your needs.

Any lessons which take place at student house takes into account distance to travel, which means that non-local tuition, e.g. half an hour to drive to, will incur an hour's tuition rate. Lessons are usually at my house, unless otherwise agreed and financially viable.

Important information necessary to consider before contact is made:

1. All payment for the month of tuition is required at the start of the month in order to secure dates and times for that month
2. cost of cancellations for the month will fall on the student and not the tutor
3. Some lesson time will be forfeited upon late arrival at lessons at my house
4. Essays which are marked and graded and feedback provided will be charged on a consultancy basis in advance. Any non-used hour’s/minutes will be refunded.
5. No payment for anything will be requested unless agreed in advance
