I'm a qualified English teacher and began tutoring 10 years ago once I decided to reduce my working hours.
Having tutored my sons to gain pasess & a scholarship at a local independent school , I went on to offer my services more widely & have since coached students , gaining seats at Wilson's , Sutton , Wallington Grammar Schools , St.Olaves , Graveney , Westminster , Christ's Hospital , Whitgift , Trinity , Caterham school to name a few.
I have also recently tutored my youngest son who now attends Wilson's grammar school.
With a specialist in Literacy, I'm able to help children and adults develop core skills & have developed a 2 year Prep for 11 Plus course focussed on all aspects of English including how to write creatively & master Comprehension
My students have benefited enormously from the step by step approach in building English skills & understanding how to apply these in exams.
I teach to GCSE & across all exam boards. AqA , Edexcel ( IGCSE ) , OCR WJEC & CIE .
I particularly enjoy working with students struggling with English & teach adult Literacy , ESOL & IELT'S
My daughter is a qualified maths teacher and currently works in a local secondary school. She has worked alongside me for 4 years on the 11 Plus Course delivering the Maths element. She also tutors to GCSE.
I'm loving tutoring more than ever. Since the pandemic I have tutored more groups & 1:1 lessons online , but I now offer in- person teaching from my home in South Croydon.
Students can book online lessons directly via messaging me here or via my website
I'm currently working towards a Dyslexia specialism & hope to expand tuition so that it becomes more accessible to those who need it. My aim is to get more children who are lagging behind in education ,attaining their potential.

Sheena is a very dedicated teacher. She has some very good teaching techniques especially with comprehension. She is very patient and adapts her teaching according to the needs of the child. We had a very challenging uncertain situation in regards to the preparation for 11 plus exams this year. Sheena was very professional and was able to teach my son in a very effective way. My son has learnt a lot of niche techniques which have never been taught in the National Curriculum. Sheena always discussed the key points about my child's attainment and areas of improvement.
Doing the classes online my son's English Language Skills and Comprehension Techniques had improved a lot.
Once again a Big Thanks to Sheena for her outstanding level of teaching and helping us in the journey of learning which helped my son to achieve the spots in all top Grammar schools he sat for.
Overall I would rate 10/10 - for Outstanding Service in Quality Learning!!
It was a wonderful 11+ journey with Sheena. My son enjoyed beign in Sheena's class and always looked forward to English lessons.
Sheena always had the children engaged from start to finish. Her classes where the right size so every child had the opportunity to participate.
With a perfect score in the kent exam, we are off to Dartford grammar for boys in September
I had an amazing experience with Sheena preparing my boy for the 11+ exam. It was a comprehensive package of top-notch English teaching combined with disciplined exam planning over two years. I loved the journey and we received the right tools and support to complement Sheena’s effort at home. At some stage, her daughter, Chanté, a Math NQT also stepped in to ensure my son is solid in math and that worked very well too.
The end result of my son choosing between more than one grammar school offer was a culmination for an orchestrated effort by a very experienced teacher and we owe her a lot of gratitude.
Sheena has been an amazing tutor. We came to her quite late in the day having gone through 2 sets of tutors over the preceding year. We started weekly one to one sessions with her in late November 2020. My son was due to sit the Trinity 10+ exam in early January and he quite simply was not up to standard as he still found comprehension tricky , particularly inferences and also his essays lacked structure. From the outset, Sheena was able to engage and encourage him so that he actually quite enjoyed his sessions with her. In his own words she was “a very good teacher, kind and quite strict.” We feel she was instrumental in helping him not only gain and feel confident in his english skills, but also in boosting his technique such that he has has been offered a place at Trinity School with an academic scholarship! The headmaster actually commented that his english achievement surpassed his maths! Our only regret is that we did not start with Sheena sooner. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
Sheena is a very knowledgeable and excellent tutor. She helped my son with English Language and Literature for his GCSEs and we saw such amazing results! She really helped refine and boost his knowledge and writing technique. Overall, she is a brilliant tutor and we would recommend her to anyone!
