Mrs Victoria P

I am a passionate and dedicated teacher of English with over ten years’ experience of helping students achieve their potential, both in the classroom and as a tutor, in state and private sectors. I have experience across a range of boards, qualifications, ages and abilities: KS2, SATS, Common Entrance, Scholarships, GCSE and A level. I’m hoping to embark on a master’s degree in English next year and therefore am currently just tutoring. As a teacher and mum of four, I feel strongly about fostering an attitude that accounts for the varying pressures on young people nowadays. I focus on developing skills and interests that will last, rather than simply training pupils for an exam. Good relationships between teacher, student and parents are crucial, and I’ve always prided myself on facilitating and achieving these in the past. I offer a personalised and adaptive approach towards tuition, and am passionate about the roles language and literature have in helping young people to navigate our complex world.
