Maths and English Tutoring in Woking

I am a friendly, patient, supportive tutor, with a gift for inspiring and explaining.
I have a first class honours degree from St. John's College, Durham University, qualified teacher status and a Master's degree in Special Educational Needs (with a focus on literacy difficulties and dyslexia).
I have a proven track record in helping students achieve high results and to feel better about their learning.

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified teacher with 20 years of teaching experience. I have taught English for 7 years in a top Independent Senior Girls' School in Guildford at all levels between Y7 - Y13 (sixth form). I have prepared students for English Language and English Literature GCSE and English Literature A Level. Everyone I have taught has passed and in the past three years, 100% of my students have achieved an A or A* grade at GCSE. I have also taught Maths up to GCSE level.
I have tutored for the past 10 years and have vast experience helping pupils pass Common Entrance and gain Scholarships to leading Independent Schools in Surrey. I have also helped many primary aged pupils have a boost in their confidence and to achieve high results in their SAT tests. I have taught many secondary aged pupils and tailored learning to individual needs, so that every pupil I have worked with has increased their confidence and made progress academically.
I worked for 2 years supporting pupils with special needs at a small school in Chertsey, 6 years at a Boys' Preparatory School in Godalming and prior to that in state primary schools.

Tutoring Approach

I listen to what you want to achieve through tuition and design a special curriculum to help you to reach your goals. I vary learning approaches to maximise your progress and offer plenty of encouragement and support. I am friendly and professional.
