About Me

Hi I am a highly qualified primary school teacher & SENCo available for private tutoring of children between 5 and 11 years old.

I am friendly, calm and approachable - my sessions are fun and lively mixing styles to keep focus and enjoyment.

Also available to support home schooling, please ask for rates.

We asked Karen to help us with our 3 year old to get a better grasp of key skills we felt his nursery didn’t have the 121 time to do.
We found our son enjoyed learning with Karen and carried on after at home - we as parents knew what to do through Karen’s weekly reports.
He’s now got into the school we hoped for - really happy with Karen and her dedicated facilities.

Karen has been tutoring our daughter for a while now and it is safe to say that none of her teachers, ever, has cared so much for her well-being than her.
Being extremely well organised, she keeps track of our DD's progress while constantly checking where the gaps are.
