Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified full-time teacher, currently working in year 6 at a high-achieving, outstanding school in north-west London.

I offer tuition for children on all subjects within the KS1, 2 and 3 curricula as well as 11+ and 13+ entry test preparation for selective schools. I have nearly 3 years tutoring experience and I have worked with children across all key stages for over 5 years.

I am able to extend higher ability children with creative and challenging activities as well as support those that need to revisit topics in a particular subject.

Being a passionate and engaging teacher committed to equality, inclusion and social mobility within education, I also try to make particular provision for pupil premium children using any available subsidies.

Tutoring Approach:

Employing my experience of up-to-date curriculum changes and school-based learning objectives as well as applying current trends in teaching methods, I provide private one-to-one tuition built around you and your child.

I always begin a set of sessions with my own Q and A process with your child in order to find out what he/she wants to improve on, what works for them in school and what they would like to gain out of each session. I always aim to start each session with a fun warm up activity and structure the lesson in order to outline a clear objective. The entire session will be engaging, deliver impact and be pitched at an appropriately challenging level. At the end we discuss what has been covered and how the homework will reinforce what's been learnt.
