Miss Karen I

As a Private Tutor, I teach your child or you as a young adult, at the right level so that they can progress well. Often progress is halted due to missing blocks of learning and it is my job to find these and teach them in a way that your child finds engaging and fun. It might be learning lost due to COVID and lockdowns or it could be an area that they simply find challenging. It could be that they have been recently identified as being on the SEN register or with a specific plan known as an IEP or POP. Whatever the context, I’m confident that I can help, as a qualified teacher since 2009. I have been judged as Good in one OFSTED inspection and Outstanding in 2 others.
