I have extensive experience and I am qualified in preparing and delivering courses to students with autism and Specific Learning Difficulties. I have a reputation for quickly striking up an excellent and good-humoured teaching relationship with learners.

I always try to make learning with me colourful and fun, rather than frightening and onerous.

Mr Miles F

I am a qualified experienced Primary School Teacher with an academic background in History, teaching across Key Stages 1 & 2, currently working as an English teacher online. I am also a private tutor and have taught Maths, English and Science across Key Stage 2 to GCSE. I can provide support for School Entrance Exams. From my experience in schools, it became evident to me that the individual needs of children (whether that is learning needs or social interaction) are difficult to meet in a classroom environment. My joy and drive to teach came from working in smaller groups, or individually with children. As such, your child will be treated as an individual with tutoring that caters specifically to them. I look forward to working with you!
