Each student is different, not only in terms of their needs but also in terms of their learning style. I believe it is necessary to set up a clear learning programme to establish goals based on the individual’s strengths and weaknesses and to ensure that both confidence and attainment are improved. I am patient and supportive and I include fun activities in each session to ensure that students enjoy their learning and strive to achieve their best. Through assessing each student’s starting point and the progress they make I am able to adapt learning programmes and set appropriate challenges depending on the needs of the individual.
I am a well qualified Primary School and EFL teacher with over 20 years of experience, having taught in the state sector and in Independent Prep Schools as well as international settings and I have worked with children from the age of 4 through to adults.
I am able to build strong relationships with my students in order to raise their confidence and attainment levels. I ensure that my lessons are interactive, enjoyable and meaningful to allow students to make fantastic progress whilst having fun.
I have had the pleasure of tutoring a variety of students and helping them to achieve excellent results in SATs tests and or providing them with that bit of extra help and confidence needed to succeed in the classroom. In addition I have worked with students from across the globe, helping them to improve their English language and communication skills. I also offer coaching for 11+ and Common Entrance Exams.
I am a Mum to three young boys who loves to travel; I have relished the opportunities of teaching in Spain, Thailand and the Czech Republic. Arts and crafts, cycling, camping, swimming, drawing and reading are my hobbies, along with teaching young children and having adventures with my little boys.
