I am an experienced teacher who enjoys working with pupils and have been told I am an outstanding teacher. I quickly build up a rapport with pupils and work at their level. I am enthusiastic, warm and most of all patient.
I have been told by colleagues I am calm and patience in all situations. I have a sense of humour which is useful to take out the stress of learning.
I am empathetic and realise that some pupils are very anxious about engaging with a teacher when learning so I am always take this into consideration when planning for the individual needs of the pupil.
I have completed a Diploma in Counselling so I am committed to professional development.

Tutoring Experience

I am a very well qualified and experienced teacher. I have been a Head of Special Needs for fourteen years and have additional qualifications in this area.

I started my career as a History teacher in a London Secondary School. Then realised quite quickly that I was interested in emotional, learning and physical difficulties.Then I embarked on re-training for two years as a SEND teacher.
I have taught pupils on a one to one basis and in small groups. I have tutored in study skills, literacy, life and social skills, English as well as emotional literacy.
I am experienced in teaching children for entry exams in local private schools in New Malden and Kingston

Tutoring Approach

I assess the pupils individual needs then plan each session around these in order that the pupil makes progress.
