Personal Description:

I am an experienced and enthusiastic academic tutor with five years experience. I am delighted to have had helped my students, aged from 3 to 18, achieve great success. I pride myself in an ability to inspire focus and academic passion.

Tutoring Experience:

My students have recently gained places at Bute House, City of London, Harrow, Godolphin and Latymer, Wycombe Abbey, Westminster and Kings Wimbledon. I have recently worked with two GCSE students whose grades improved from grade D/E to grade A/ A*.

I conduct practice interviews, educational assessments and mock-entrance tests. I have prepared boys and girls for the entrance assessments for highly selective schools (Eton, Rugby, Colet Court, Charterhouse, Harrow, Bute House, Wetherby, City of London, King's College School and Sevenoaks), and therefore have an excellent knowledge of the current requirements and reputations of these and other schools.

I have also experience with home-schooling, most recently working full time with a family where the two boys were educated in the home for a term until they were confident enough to rejoin a mainstream school. I covered all the Humanities for both students, aged 12 and 14.

As a professionally trained singer and actor I have also worked with pupils on aspect of speech, vocal confidence, accent and etiquette.

Tutoring Approach:

Every child’s educational interests and needs are different, but parents engage me to teach their children for five main reasons: My educational philosophy is to encourage a pupil’s intellectual curiosity, and his or her independent and individual thought. With this in mind I have developed individually tailored curricula to complement, support and extend my pupils’ work at school. I tailor my methods and curriculum to each student’s needs. I focus on exam techniques, creative writing, comprehension skills and written expression, from KS1 literacy skills to English Literature GCSE, AS and A-Level. I enjoy working both face to face and via Skype.

As an English specialist, I enjoy teaching the humanities (English Literature, English Language, History) at Senior School level (including 13+, GCSE, IGCSE, AS and A-Level). I pride myself in an ability to inspire a passion and instill ability for English Literature and Language, both creative and analytical.

All-round educational play, support and development for children between 2 and 8 years. My work with this age group is tailored towards assessments at 4+, 7+ and 8+.
those who are aware of the competition for places at independent schools look for help as their children prepare for 4+, 7+, 11+ and Common Entrance assessments.

I enjoy working on focused revision sessions to help them prepare for public exams including GCSE, iGCSE, AS and A-level.
