About Me

Hello there and thanks for looking at my profile.
Please feelk free to contact me with any queries.

I am an experienced senior qualified teacher and have experience both teaching and tutoring a wide range of subjects to both boys and girls aged 3 -16 mainly covering problems with maths and english, dysgraphia, verbal and non verbal reasoning, 10+, 11+, 13plus and GCSE's.

I have successfully tutored boys and girls over this past 10 years to exam success to top public schools, including obtaining scholarships entries (4 scholarships this year alone), which this year have included Eton, Harrow, Sherborne, Merchant Taylors, Wellington and St.Paul`s amongst others.

I have also taught primary pupils to success in 11plus test in Watford Boys, QE Boys, Dartford Grammar and Tiffin to me a few.

I also coach several sports and represent GB at International Level.

I am available to tutor your child on weekends and some weeknights by arrangement, in order to assist them in achieving the required standard and fulfil their natural potential.

I prepare work for the child's specific needs at and between tutoring sessions and also have considerable experience tutoring children with learning difficulties.
I use the latest books and resources to teach the NEW National Curriculum and carry out Multiple Inteligence Tests so learning is fun, structured and targeted.

I have taught both UK and foreign pupils with numerous learning needs and completed thesis on both under and over-achieving pupils for my Dip.Child Psychology.

I can travel throughout Reading / Oxford A34 / Harrow M4 Greater London corridor to tutor in your own home.

Currently tutoring children from a wide spectrum of socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds to gain places in top schools with 100% success rate.

DBS forms and qualifications are available for inspection.

I look forward to hearing from you shortly to discuss your requirements further.

Thank you for your review. It is great to have another positive recommendation.
I believe word of mouth is the best way for anyone to be recommended.
