About Me

I am a 62 year old grandmother who enjoys looking after and tutoring children in English and Maths. I was asked to volunteer as a tutor at an ethnic minority homework club which is how I started tutoring, I enjoy passing on my knowledge and explaining new concepts to children and attempt to find a way that they will understand these new ideas using pictures and if necessary props etc. I enjoy reading, keeping in touch with my friends and family, and spending time with my cats. I take children outside where appropriate, undertake crafting projects and also do some baking with the older children hoping to spark an interest in them in arts and crafts and baking.

I also speak fluent french, due to my french heritage.

Thank you Dee

Dee was looking after my 3 kids on a Saturday evening, I was really anxious at the thought of leaving them as it was my first experience, but I shouldn’t have worried. The kids were happy to stay with Dee and had a great evening playing games.
I highly recommend Dee and will definitely be booking her again soon.
