Maths and English Tuition in Exeter

I am a qualified primary school teacher with more than 16 years experience. Since studying Education at the University of Exeter, I have gone on to teach in two Schools in Hampshire and Devon.
In recent years I have held additional Senior responsibilities in school. I have been a Year Leader, Key Stage Leader and a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
I am a published author (Quick Fix For Year 6, Scholastic). This is one of the very few resources for teachers that explains how to teach children to answer reading and comprehension questions.
I live in Exeter with my husband and our two young children.

Tutoring Experience

I have spent most of my career teaching Year 5 & 6 children (9-11 years old) but I have successfully taught every year group within the primary age range. I am very experienced at preparing children for their Year 6 SATs, 11+ exams and Public School entrance exams. I have a particular talent for tailoring my teaching to meet the individual needs of the children; filling the gaps in their knowledge and their skills and teaching exam techniques to boost progress and achieve the highest possible results.
I take great pride in watching the youngsters that I teach grow in confidence and achieve their goals.

Tutoring Approach

I tutor from my home on the edge of St Leonards in a well resourced, quiet and comfortable office.

My approach to 11+ preparation is structured, personalised and professional. I use regular informal assessments to inform the next steps in my teaching and I work hard to tailor the tuition to meet the individual needs of the child.

This rigorous approach and the resources I use provide the very best preparation for the exam.

I achieved 100% exam success last year with all students passing the 11+ exam at Colyton, Torquay Boys', Torquay Girls' and Churston Ferrers.
