I am an experienced and very enthusiastic teacher and linguist. Prior to teaching, I worked as an interpreter/flight announcer at a busy international airport. Two of my own children, who I tutored, gained places at Oxbridge. As a wife and mother, I am a good communicator and able to put people at their ease. In my leisure time I enjoy music, walking, reading, cooking, gardening, travel and theatre visits.
I have 15 years' experience of teaching in secondary schools and 5 years' experience as a tutor.
I am patient, organised, adaptable and trustworthy with a good sense of humour. My aim is to provide precisely what each individual pupil needs and in the past I have had tutees from age 7 to 93. I always try to "go the extra mile for my pupils".
