Personal Description:

A passion for how people learn and its effects on society, combined with a personal breadth of experience both in an out of formal education have taken me down many challenging paths. Perhaps my own personal difficulties with learning and lack of confidence have moulded much of what I am today. I count myself very fortunate having had a supportive family and friends, none of whom encouraged easy opt outs. For that I am truly grateful.

Tutoring Experience:

Over twenty years experience in teaching - mainly in the Infant and Primary sector - leading to teaching headship of a small Infants School (4 1/2 year) and non teaching Head of Primary School (4 years). Two years experience in teaching English as a Foreign language. Teacher training in Africa. Private tuition done professionally since 2010

Tutoring Approach:

Assessment of student needs. Ideally I like to work with the schools and the parents. My approach is direct and my priority is to create confidence based real success with a standard. Getting the student to buy in to responsibility for his/her learning is one of many steps. Fun is part of the process, but the reality is that many children are requiring teaching.
