Ashford Tutor

I live in Ashford and travel to your home to tutor. I gave up full-time teaching recently after many happy and successful years and I now feel that I would like to share my extensive knowledge and experience through private tutoring as I would still like to make a difference in enabling children to achieve their full potential and to improve their levels.

On a more personal note, my husband and I play short-mat bowls and we compete in the local league. We also enjoy growing our own vegetables, gardening and travelling.

Tutoring Experience

I have many years of experience in Primary education both in London and Kent. During my career, I have achieved outstanding results both in the SATs and from OFSTED. In the first year of SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar tests) I achieved 100% level 4 and above and my class was the top in the area.
I have taught all primary age ranges and have experience of many cultures and children with special educational needs. This experience also includes many years in Yr 5 and 6 so am experienced with the content of the 11 plus exam including the verbal and non-verbal reasoning and have the ability to prepare children for the demands of the test as well as up-levelling their writing and improving their maths and reading.
My goal is to pass my knowledge on to children to improve their confidence and success in writing, reading and maths and to achieve their full potential. I am happy to give just a few lessons to give children a boost or to tutor more long term depending on their needs.

Tutoring Approach

I aim to teach skills, knowledge and self confidence in an enjoyable way to suit your child using a variety of tasks and games which will build on each step learnt. I believe that self confidence breeds success.
For the 11+, I will teach all of the types of VR and NVR, teach the best strategies for success and speed, find any gaps in English and maths content and prepare the tutee for the 11+ exam.
