Where do you teach?
I have just moved to Streatham Common and am looking for new clients in SW London.
I also have an existing client in Notting Hill on Tuesday and Wednesday and would be interested in taking on a client that I could see on the same day.
I prefer to travel to the students' homes but I am now able to teach at home too.

During term time my diary contains:

Monday: clients in Balham from 4.30 to 6.45
Tuesday: clients in Notting Hill 4-6.15
Wednesday: client in Notting Hill 5.30-6.30
Saturday: client in Notting Hill 1.30-2.30

I am particularly looking for a client in the Notting Hill area from 4pm on a Wednesday and for clients on Thursday and Friday within a reasonable distance from my home in Streatham.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach students aged 7-18.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I have taught via Skype in the past and am comfortable doing so if preferred.
Tell me about some of your current students.
Current clients include: general English, Maths and Reasoning support for two 9 year old boys, preparing a 9 year old girl for eventually taking the 11+ exams, Maths with an 8 year old student with a view to the 11+ exams and A-level politics.

Students of mine have achieved successes such as gaining entry to prestigious schools (8+ entry to KCS Wimbledon & St Paul's Junior) and achieving an A* in Government & Politics and an offer from the University of Oxford.
