Hi, I am Nicola, a mum to three grown up children, two step daughters and I recently became a grandmother. We moved down to Woking from Wimbledon 5 years ago and are loving the much more relaxed lifestyle. I spent the last academic year (2020/21) working as a 1:1 LSA in a local Woking prep school, and from September 2021 I have been working as a KS2 TA (years 5&6) in a local independent girls' prep school. Prior to this I spent seven years as a TA in an independent girls' prep school in South Kensington. I have over 23 years experience working in state, independent and international schools.
I have been tutoring from home for the past 9 years, first in Wimbledon and in Woking for the past four years. I specialise in helping build confidence in children who find maths a challenge and use a variety of strategies. I am very happy to liaise with your child's class teacher if this is appropriate. I take children from Y1 to Y6 but I don't prepare them for the 11+. I have a dedicated work space and include all maths books in the lesson cost.
I also specialise in helping children learn to read using the Toe by Toe method. This is a phonics based scheme which is wonderful if your child needs extra work in this area. I am not a dyslexia specialist but am happy to help those with mild dyslexia. I will let you know whether I feel your child needs a specialist tutor after an initial assessment.
I have worked in a variety of schools for over 23 years and specialise in supporting children from Years 1-6. I have the safeguarding, first aid, DBS and other checks and training. I am also a qualified Learning Support Assistant and have undertaken training in Unicorn Maths, Toe by Toe, Read Write Inc and Acceleread Accelewrite.
I have many references from past pupils and can give you details of current pupils should you wish to chat to them. Unfortunately, when a member closes their account on this site, they aren't able to put up a review without paying again. This is why there aren't any reviews from my pupils up here.
