I am an experienced primary school teacher with Qualified Teacher Status. I am currently in Year 4 but have taught throughout the primary phase. I have worked with students both on a one to one basis, groups and full classes. This has also included online tuition via Zoom alongside more traditional face to face tuition. I can assist any primary school students and coach children for the 11 plus exam. I can also help children who are behind expectations in high school and support them to catch up. I believe that my excellent communication skills and solid academic background enable me to be an effective tutor particularly within the core subjects of English and maths. I work with students at Independent schools as well as those from Grammar and Non-Selective State schools. I am very approachable, focused and passionate about tutoring.
