I am an enthusiastic, professional and patient tutor. As a qualified, experienced teacher with a B.A. (Honours) English degree, I ensure that learning is targeted to the particular interests and learning style of each student as success is achieved. Dedicated to motivating pupils, I aim to make each learning experience exciting and challenging.

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified teacher with many years' experience teaching in schools and colleges in the UK and also abroad. I undertook county council training to run one-to-one tuition in primary and secondary schools, which I was involved in for seven years. Prior to this, I offered Maths, English and Common Entrance tuition for five years where I was living in Surrey. I have also worked as an examiner for AQA A level English; this has given me an insight into the assessment process and has enhanced my teaching of study skills, revision and exam techniques.

I hаve prepаred many students fоr successful 11+ and 13+ entry intо independent and grammar schools in Surrey, West Berkshire and West Sussex. Details on request. As well аs schооl entrаnce exаms, I cаn help students prepаre fоr interviews аs required. While I am extremely proud of my students' many outstanding academic successes (one Eton King's Scholarship, one Winchester Scholarship, and a place at Dulwich College achieved this academic year), this is not my sole focus.

Tutoring Approach

My genuine interest in learners and my sensitivity to their individual needs enable me to develop a strong rapport. I particularly enjoy seeing students make progress through the personalised process that tuition provides as they grow in confidence and competence.
