Tower Hamlets Tutor

I have left full-time teaching to concentrate on one-to-one tutoring. All children learn at a different pace and sometimes classroom lessons can move too fast and create gaps or too slow and create boredom. It would be wonderful to give a child the individual attention they need to make the progress they deserve. I am currently tutoring students with English as an additional language, from 4 years old to 11 years old. I have an excellent success rate in assisting pupils who wish to enter selective independent schools, including the 11+. I am also able to help with the interview process carried out by highly sought after independent schools in the UK.

Tutoring Experience

I began my teaching career in 2004 at a residential school for children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. I graduated with a QTS (Grade 1 - Outstanding). Since then, I have worked in six boroughs including: Tower Hamlets, Greenwich, Waltham Forest, Redbridge, Havering and Essex. I have taught every year group from Nursery to Year 6 and spent some time teaching in a secondary school as a Special Needs teacher. I have been subject leader for Mathematics, Science, Design Technology and PSHE. I am a maths mastery specialist, enabling children to gain a greater depth of understanding in relation to mathematical concepts. I have been employed to raise standards in mathematics and create bespoke programmes of study. I have helped raise children's attainment levels in Phonics, Mathematics, Reading and Writing.

Tutoring Approach

Tutoring will be child/adult centred and pitched at the right level to be fun and engaging. Some of the tutoring will introduce new topics, some will consolidate understanding and some will help achieve greater depth and extend learning.
