Personal Description:

I am an Honours graduate in French Language and Literature from King's College, London, and tutor in English, Maths, French and Latin to children of primary and secondary age. I have been tutoring for nearly 20 years and have an excellent reputation for my teaching style, my thoroughness, and my ability to help children exceed their own and their parents' expectations. Most of my new students find me by recommendation from existing students. I love tutoring - developing an encouraging relationship with a child who needs extra help, providing them with engaging lessons and homework that are focused on exactly the skills they need to develop; in addition, I am happy to act as mentor and facilitator.

Tutoring Experience:

I have nearly 20 years' experience of teaching English Language and Literature, Maths, French and Latin to children from age 5 to 16; in addition, I support the work of specialist GCSE teachers by providing extra coaching and homework support in these subjects. I am experienced at teaching children both one-to-one and in groups. In addition to teaching and inspiring creative writing, I also offer specialist teaching in grammar, punctuation, and essay-writing skills. I have extensive experience of inspiring reluctant readers and writers. In Latin I give top-up lessons, teaching from scratch, and crash courses. My success rate is 100% at tutoring students through their independent school entry exams, Common Entrance and 11+. In addition, I help students write their Personal Statement.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in inspiring and supporting children and young people in their learning. I provide fun and lively lessons and offer plenty of encouragement for students to enjoy learning and to do their best. I create a flexible, one-to-one service so that we create a mode and a pace of learning that suits the student. I am happy to work to the student's curriculum or to provide an alternative approach that puts extra fun back into learning. I am happy to use students' materials, to adapt them or to use my own. I like using games as a learning tool with students but am happy to use worksheets, too, if that is what students would like.
