I am a qualified English Teacher with over 16 years of experience in teaching learners of different age and ability. I have worked in various schools (primary/secondary, state/independent), but I have a special interest in private tuition.
I mainly tutor Early Years and Primary School pupils (EYFS, KS1, KS2) in Maths (KS1) and English (KS1 and KS2) with a focus on improving attainment in Writing, Speaking, Reading Comprehension, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. I also specialise in teaching English to learners with a different first language (EAL/EFL/ESOL).
I mainly use unpublished material, written by me, which is tailored to the needs of each learner. All lessons are taught by me.
Every lesson starts with a Spelling Test (the spelling list is provided on the previous lesson). The lesson has a main focus (i.e. Reading Comprehension or Writing) and includes a five-minute test in preparation for the 11+ (from the age of 5) and homework to further consolidate the material taught. Progress tests are frequently used as well.
I have worked in different environments (primary and secondary state and independent schools alongside private tuition) and with a different focus (raising levels of attainment, examination and certificate driven, work related to adults). I have tutored children from the early age of three.
I specialise in EAL/EFL/ESOL – teaching English to learners with a different first language. I also tutor Early Years and Foundation pupils and Primary School pupils (EYFS, KS1, KS2), teaching Maths (KS1) and English (KS1 and KS2) with a focus of improving levels of attainment in Writing, Speaking, Reading Comprehension, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. I also work with pupils for KS2 preparation.
I am very patient with learners, kind and approachable. I deliver engaging lessons, making learning fun whilst at the same time supporting learners in their studies, helping them to get organised, build confidence and develop independent learning skills. I always personalise my teaching practices to suit the learner’s specific needs and use different teaching strategies to raise standards of attainment.

Additional service: I can pick up children from either Chalfont St Peter Infant School or Chalfont St Peter CofE Academy, give them a snack and assist them with homework and/or tutor them. Parents can then pick them up from my house. My fees are £10/hour for this service.
I hold a Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), a Bachelor (BA Hons) in English Literary Studies and a Postgraduate Certificate in Management (PGCM) from the University of Central Lancashire, UK. I also hold a Diploma in English from Nottingham International Study Centre, a First Certificate in English from The University of Cambridge, a Proficiency in English from The University of Michigan and have attended several certified teaching courses, such as:

I was astonished by the improvement my son had within one month of starting the lessons. Mrs Tatsi is well organised and passionate about her job. I will definitely choose her for my youngest son as well, if I feel that he needs support. Highly recommended tutor.
