Certificate Of Education, BA (Hons) English Literature, (ongoing) Master's Degree in Applied Linguistics
What kind of experience do you have?
I qualified as a teacher in 1975, so bring a great deal of experience both in the primary and secondary sector. I have been a tutor since 2008 and believe that every child can achieve their very best, building confidence is always important. I hear the sentence 'I'm rubbish at...' all too often. One to one tutoring changes that sentence to 'I love...'. All my students succeed but please remember we need time and consistency. I have students who came for a few weeks and are still coming after a year! They genuinely enjoy the experience.
How much do you charge?
I offer reduced prices for families of more than one student. I charge extra fees for travelling.

I teach at home in Tiverton, Devon. I am able to travel in Tiverton and to Exeter. My nearest station is Tiverton Parkway.

Do you have a personal message for students?
