Accurate assessment is the key to understanding the unique needs of each student and forging effective relationships with them. I passionately believe that a bespoke programme of personalised tuition can enable children to exceed their targets and grow in confidence.

This is vital in order to be successful. I also develop excellent relationships with the children that I teach with fun and stimulating activities in order to ensure that they make good progress. Importantly, the confidence of children and self-esteem also develops.
