I have a B. Ed. (Hons) degree from Reading University. and several diplomas, including in Performance Coaching, Special Educational Needs, Educational Psychology and Reading Intervention.

I have 25 years of teaching experience. I worked in schools in England between 1993 and 2010, holding several senior management posts including two deputy headships. I have been a private tutor since 2011 and have an excellent track record in improving children's understanding in many aspects of Maths and English. Please have a look at the YouTube video I have uploaded to find out a little more about me!
How much do you charge?
I charge £20 per hour. I offer all of my students a free initial assessment.

I currently teach classes on Monday - Friday between 3pm - 7pm, which are all fully booked. I do, however, have some availability to work with home-educated studentd during the day from 10am until 2pm, Monday to Friday.

I teach maths and English to students aged 5-14 years. I am happy to teach from the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence or from the National Curriculum, having had experience of delivering both.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an enhanced European Police Check.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I use a video conferencing tool called Zoom to teach online lessons. This integrated well with every other available resource in my repertoire, including the use of an excellent interactive whiteboard called BitPaper. I am a firm believer in having fun while we work, so I can promise that my lessons will be fun and engaging.
Where and with whom did you train?
I trained at Reading University as a teacher.
Tell me about some of your current students.
I work with all sorts of students, including children with Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADHD and ASD. Most of my current students are face-to-face but I also do have some online home-educated students at the moment.
Do you have a personal message for students?
If you feel you struggle with maths, reading, spelling or writing, I know I can help you to perform better and eel more confident in your own ability. I can make learning fun!
