About Me

Dear all,

I am a friendly, professional and reliable English teacher looking to hear from parents and guardians, who are interested in their child's academic success.
This is a post for a Private English Tutor only.

I have a BA in English Language and Literature and I am offering my services to tutor English to children in primary education.
You are encouraged to get in touch, if your child needs help with homework, exams (SAT, YLE, 11+) or you just want them to improve their English.

I am passionate about teaching and learning. I believe in providing stimulating, fun and challenging tuition to young people experiencing a range of difficulties. By instilling a genuine interest in the subject and working as a team, I am confident that we can achieve improvement.

My tutoring approach is an inclusive one, with the understanding that a visual learner won't respond to hours of lecturing, just as an oral learner won't learn from a 200 page textbook. Flexible, tailored tuition is the only route to real success. I much prefer to engage in discussion with my learners, rather than lecture them, as I consider this a better style to encourage a long-term intellectual development.
Respect, communication and preparation are essential in our working together.

Certificates and excellent reference letters can be provided upon request.

Do get in touch and let me know more about your child's learning needs, number of hours you are thinking of and we will take it from there. Only serious and committed parents please.

Many thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Diana

My Experience

I have been working with children for the past 10 years. Over the past 10 years I worked with children both in their home and classroom environment.

I enjoy teaching and find it very rewarding. I am passionate about what I do and although I am quite strict regarding expectations, when it comes to teaching, I am able to relax and have a laugh with my pupils. I think having a sense of humor is very important when teaching.

Over the last couple of years I worked with a little boy, who has achieved very highly academically, and is now studying at Wilson's School, one of the best state-funded selective boys' schools in the country.
( Intensive 11+ Preparation)

I have some experience working with SEN children.

Respect, Health and Safety are a priority for me and my learners.
