About Me

Hi there

A qualified English teacher , I began tutoring 10 years ago once I decided to reduce my working hours.

Having tutored my son 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 & beome adept at 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 .

I teach IELT'S / ESOL

My daughter , a trainee maths teacher has worked alongside me for 4 years on the 11 Plus Course teaching all things maths. She also tutors to GCSE.

I'm loving tutoring more than ever. Since CoVid 19 in line with government guidelines have moved my tuition online but as soon as it is safe will offer face to face once more. Students can book online lessons directly or via my website

I'm currently working towards Dyslexia specislism & hope to expand tuition so that it becomes more accessible to those who need it. My aim is to get more children from deprived communities into the best schools & once there attain the best grades.

I would say that Sheena has helped my son greatly with his preparation for his GCSE English literature and language exams. He found the advice and techniques she provided to be of great use; these aided him a lot during his exams. Sheena's lessons have a very nice structure which allows for coverage of a lot of useful knowledge in just a single lesson. We wish her the best for the future

Natasha is a wonderful tutor. My daughter went to her for her 11+ preparation, and found that Natasha's teaching techniques were exceptionally good. She gives the student a variety of comprehensions, writing pieces. Natasha gives detailed feedback to the student and their parents after each session. Thanks to her, my daughter has passed both stages in the Sutton exam, and has also done extremely well in the private school exams. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a English tutor.

Natasha is very professional and competent about her work and certainly brings the best out of a child. She is very enthusiastic and passionate about English and writing and she passes over this attitude to her students. My son had made a huge progress in English and this is all down to Natasha's hard work. My son loved having lessons with Natasha and worked hard during them. I've recommended Natasha to all my friends and she certainly is a fantastic tutor.
