About Me

I am a qualified teacher with over ten years’ experience of working with children and young people in different capacities as a teacher, Education Support Worker, Extended Services Co-ordinator and Education Social Worker.

My Experience

I have over five years’ experience teaching National Curriculum subjects including English and maths at KS 2 (years 4, 5 and 6) in primary schools in London and providing 1-2-1 support to young carers in school. I also have experience of teaching KS 3 maths and English (year 7/8) at secondary level.

I am available to tutor students in key stage 1, key stage 2 and key stage 3 in maths and English. I also prepare students for SATs, transition to secondary school and preparation for common entrance exams 11+. I am experienced in working with young people (KS2 and KS3 ) with additional learning needs to develop their emotional resilience - self-confidence and self-esteem (using a range of practical activities) as well as attainment levels.

My Qualifications

I graduated with an honours degree in Education from Greenwich University. I completed a post qualification in Management (Level 4) from Kensington and Chelsea College. As part of my CPD I have completed training in Child Protection Level 3 (April 2016), Safer Recruitment (October 2015) and Emergency First Aid at Work (March 2014 - valid for 3 years). I also have a current online DBS. References available on request. I have also completed a level 2 qualification in counselling working with young people.

My son has been working with FBL since September 2014 when he started Y5, he is now in Y6 sitting his SATS this week and he has come along way.

When FBL met my son his grades were way below average for his age in English, Maths and Writing. He lacked confidence, would rather not give an answer in case it would be the wrong answer and was very quiet and shy. From day one FBL made my son feel comfortable in learning, she has encouraged and supported him at the right pace and level.

FBL has tutored my son once a week and I can honestly say she is the best person to tutor my son. In my son's last term report he was graded Average and Above Average. I am extremely happy with my son's progress!

FBL's communication, consistency and support has been amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

My daughter has been recieving tuition from Frances for the last year now and she has grown not only in her academic work but also her personal confidence. Her grades have improved and she has developed many skills particularly in maths with problem solving. Frances was very polite and friendly, always on time and happy to help my daughter with any maths areas she found difficult as well as setting homework and providing interim tests to assess progress. I would definitely recommend Frances to anyone in need of a great tutor.
