Hi, I'm Fiona. Always smiling, and fun to be with! Nurture and care for children along with life long learning skills are what I am most passionate about. Helping children to thrive is what I do best and when I'm happiest.
I am trained as a primary school teacher, with the final 6 years of my school career leading a large Early Years unit with a Montessori approach. Over the past 19 years, I have worked with children aged 4 to 9 in school, and tutoring children in readiness for Year 6 SATs. I also have a range of other experiences to draw upon, such as leading a Girl Guide Brownie unit, teaching my own Irish Dancing club and running residential trips.
I worked as a nanny for 4 different families in Boston, MA (USA) over a period of 4 years for children aged 6months to 13years, as well as a regular babysitter for a wonderful little girl from age 6months until she was 8 years old here in the UK. I have also run Children's Yoga sessions as after school clubs.
I am available for 1:1 tutoring sessions for children aged 3 to 16.

Fiona is a fabulous private tutor. We're glad we have found her to help improve my daughter's math.
We have been with Fiona for more than a year now, and will keep having her.
She is very kind, smiling and dedicated. She makes my daughter feel at ease. Most important thing is that she has all the patience to deal with my daughter's math assignments from school and she has been amazing and fantastically helpful.
I can't thank her enough for helping my daughter to improve her Math and make her feel more confident with Math.
Our five year old son had been going to see Fiona for the last two months. She has been doing an amazing job with him. He loves going to see her.
We have already noticed that his speech and reading is improving.
She has lots of different learning games. Our son has so much fun, he doesn't even realise that he's learning.
Fiona - thank you so much for your help. We feel lucky that we found you.
I really can't recommend Fiona enough. I first approached Fiona shortly after the first Covid Lockdown, my then Year 2 son, like many other children, had missed out on six months of formal education, home-schooling had not gone very well and I felt he needed some extra support. Being Summer born, he is young in his year group and finds concentrating on certain tasks, at school, challenging and he can become distracted very easily. Fiona, with her naturally enthusiastic and bubbly personality, is able to engage him and keep him focused whilst making learning fun through various games and activities; her thoughtful approach means that he doesn't even realise he is learning at all! He absolutely loves his sessions with her and is always very keen to get there.
Fiona provides a very nurturing, encouraging and informal educational environment where my son feels comfortable and relaxed. I have watched him make real progress in his reading, writing and his maths to the point he finds his school work less challenging and he has gained a lot more confidence.
If you are looking for a kind, caring and passionate Tutor to support your child, in their learning, then I really urge you to contact Fiona.
Fiona has been a tutor for my son for over a year and she has been fantastic! My son loves attending her lessons and quite often doesn't want to leave.
She has the perfect environment and facilities for private tuition, but more importantly an amazing, positive attitude and enthusiasm for teaching. Every child should have a teacher like Fiona.
Fiona is not my children's tutor or nanny - she is part of our family. She joined our family more than a year ago and her care for the welfare and education of all 4 of my children is off the charts. She has that incredible knack of teaching them (whether it be manners or maths) without them even realising it.
Fiona is incredibly flexible and always helping us out with anything. Her qualifications speak for themselves and I trust her implicitly with all aspects of my children's lives.
