Personal Message
Each child needs to feel confident with good self esteem in order to feel successful academically. When they can see their rapid progress and a greater understanding in 11+ subjects, they grow braver and more confident, with the edge to succeed!
Which subject(s) do you teach?
Maths, English (Comprehension expert!), Verbal and non-verbal reasoning
Tell me about your qualifications.
BSc in Geography from Kingston
PGCE 7-11 from Kingston
What kind of experience do you have?
I have 12 years experience teaching KS2 in the state sector and currently 12 years teaching in the Independent Prep School sector primarily to Year 5 and 6 children heading towards 11+. I understand the worries and anxiety issues around 11+ entrance exams... for children and parents. Often there are gaps in a child's understanding, which means they are unstable in developing their later knowledge. Securing this and building on 11+ exam technique and practice questions puts them in the right frame of mind to confidently tackle 11+. I have a raft of tips, techniques and resources with which to tackle 11+ exams - and current, relevant knowledge of what the schools require.
How much do you charge?
£45-50 per hour depending on location
Where do you teach?
I live in Surbiton and am happy to travel to your home or teach from mine - which ever is easiest for you.
Will teach in Kingston, Surbiton, Thames Ditton, Esher, Claygate - i.e. within a few miles of Surbiton

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Do you have a personal message for students?
Having tuition doesn't have to be a burden. I will always make it engaging, motivating and fun. You will feel so much more confident as you head back into school each time we have had a lesson! ... AND you will be ready for 11+
