Following my graduation, I worked for many years as both live-in and live-out governess to children ranging from 3 years to 17 years of age, both in the UK and Europe, before starting my own family. My eldest son is a Maths graduate, my second son is currently at University and my daughter is at preschool.
I have taught French, German, English (also as a foreign language) and Maths from primary up to GCSE level. My pupils are all of varying ability and with very different learning styles.
Returning to tutoring last year after a successful business career, I bring a refreshed and enthusiastic but calm approach to education and supplementary learning. Initial assessment of the student using one of my preferred adapted questionnaires (such as VARK) allows me to develop a strategy that will encourage and nurture the pupils strengths in order to achieve the best results. In addition to any direction provided by parents, I also always try to establish a rapport with relevant school teachers and seek their advice on areas that need focus/reinforcement. Finally, I try to bring a little fun into the mix to keep my learners smiling!
