English (Foreign Language)
I'm a successful tutor and teacher, with many years experience. My latest OFSTED rating was 1 (Feb 2014). I'm married, with 2 lovely, but very different boys.
I'm professional, approachable, patient and have a sense of humour which helps put children at ease.
I absolutely love teaching; I can't imagine any better profession. Enthusiasm, professionalism and hard work pay off helping children to make progress.
Over 20 years teaching across the 4 main key stages. I've worked with many different types of children, including those with Special Needs (ADHD, SLD, MLD, SEBd, Autism, dyslexia and Aspergers) as well as pushing Gifted and Talented.
I have marked Key Stage Two, Three and GCSE exams, which has significantly informed my teaching.
I've been tutoring now, in addition to my teaching commitments at school, for over 8 years and the vast majority of my clients come to me through personal recommendation. Most of my pupils have exceeded their targets and my record at helping children to prepare for entrance tests is second to none. Students have done extremely well in tests for Adams, Newport, St Joseph's, Newcastle, Stafford and Manchester grammar.
In my opinion, tuition is one of the most rewarding aspects of teaching in that I'm able to tailor my teaching to the specific and individual needs of each student, rather than just the confines of the year group.
Lessons are relevant, fun, interesting and provide maximum learning. I make each lesson specific to each child and build on their knowledge, interests, skills and experience.
Whether your child needs extra support because they are finding school a little difficult or needs stretching to achieve their best - I can help

I am, undoubtably, a specialist upto GCSE English - and didn't hide that from you. However, I have also had outstanding results with Maths students, both in school and as a tutor. Currently, four of my English students have also asked me to coach either themselves or their siblings for Maths; and a colleague, having seen me work with catch-up pupils, has also asked me to help her son with his GCSE maths and he is now making good progress, improving his current assessment grades from E to C. Not one of my weaker students failed their maths exams - either GCSE or Functional Maths.
Thank you, again.
I have to say, I'm enjoying the lessons too - she's got a lovely sense of humour and is extremely hard working.
