*Currently, due to the pandemic, I am only conducting online tutoring sessions*
I am a highly experienced academic tutor with numerous years of active experience privately tutoring children, teenagers and university students. Over the course of several years, I have tutored over 100 students one-to-one with each of them showing significant progress, as well as, thoroughly enjoying the lessons.
~ AWARDED CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE FOR TUTORING BY CHILDCARE.CO.UK ~
As a Mathematics and Psychology student at University in London, I have gained an understanding of children's varying learning styles, and how to mould my teaching strategies to best suit each individual child's strengths and style. I am also in the process of completing a Level 3 Award in Education and Training. Throughout my educational career I have obtained top A+ grades, and plan to attend medical school in the future. I am very academic-orientated, and hold education as a top priority.
I have tutored countless students at primary, middle and high school level, and am also an official academic-writing and maths tutor for University students. I am extremely familiar with Reception, KS1, KS2 and KS3 curriculum/syllabus. Whether you require assistance alongside homeschooling, 'target tutoring' to strengthen your child's weaker areas or someone to work through your child's schoolwork with them, I can definitely help! I also assist with boosting children's self-confidence, so their true abilities can shine through. I specialise in Maths, English, Reading and Writing tutoring, however, provided the appropriate materials and syllabus I can successfully tutor in any subject.
I offer 1:1 tutoring (or group sessions upon request) in:
• Early years (Nursery / Reception)
• KS1-KS4 / Primary-Secondary School
• 4+/ 7+/ 11+/ 13+ Entrance Exam preparation
• GCSE (Mathematics, English, Science)
• A-Level (Mathematics, English, Psychology, Biology, Chemistry, Business)
• Homework assistance
• Phonics and reading intervention
• University level (Foundation, Undergraduate)
Please get in touch ASAP if you're interested or have any further questions!
With over four years experience, I have privately tutored many students in the past. I am currently online tutoring (via Zoom) over 30 students aged 3 to 16 years old. My tutees have shown significant improvement in their grades. One of my most recent tutees, went from achieving F grades to B+ grades within a matter of weeks. Although, online tutoring is deemed an 'untraditional' method of tutoring, I personally think it renders much, if not more, academic improvement than face-to-face sessions! It also eliminates the hassle associated with travel time and costs, and allows your child to learn in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. It is also safer for both parties, as you are not allowing a stranger into your home and I do not have enter strange homes. All subjects can be taught via online tutoring, including handwriting and speech!
I aim to make my tutoring sessions as interactive, fun and enjoyable as possible, to ensure my tutees are engaged the entire time; this includes, the use of various colours when illustrating on my digital whiteboard, playing relevant educational games at the end of every session and incorporating creative aspects into the sessions (art projects, journaling, fictional writing, posters, etc). Journaling at the end of each lesson allows my students to reflect on what they've learnt and identify specific areas they need to improve on; this creates a sense of motivation to achieve their goals. Whether it is a virtual clap after each correct answer or a personalised certificate acknowledging their hard work, I ALWAYS take time to reward my students and appreciate their effort! These are methods I use to boost confidence and self-belief within my students.
In terms of lesson plan, I create individual, personalised schedules for each of my tutees. I do much preparation/planning prior to each session, which requires great time and effort. This ensures they are progressing in the 'target areas' and are on track. Therefore, my lesson plans are all completely unique and geared towards each individual student; this allows for maximum success. You can provide me with schoolwork to work through with your child, or I can find/create year-appropriate curriculum (worksheets, activities). Either way, your child will further their learnings.
I also have extensive experience with Special Needs (SEN) children; these include, Autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and Fragile-X.
In terms of University-level tutoring, I currently am and have privately tutored over 20 university students in their respective courses, with each of them achieving at least a B+ in their final exams. As a top A-grade student, I provide the following services to university students: assignment reviewing/proofreading/editing, explaining complex concepts in-depth, academic writing workshops, referencing workshops and providing guidance and feedback. I also work through my students’ assignments/presentations step-by-step with them to ensure we produce the best possible product. I specialise in Psychology, Business, Marketing, Mathematics, Education and Childhood courses. However, I can assist in any courses’ assignments in regards to improving academic-style writing. When deadlines are approaching, I am very flexible with timing; for example, I can conduct sessions very early morning or late at night. Please note: prices for university tutoring differ based on subject and year/level, so please enquire.

Online tutoring was a new venture for us as a family. My kids settled in right from the 1st session, with our younger son especially fond of Serena. We saw the tangible improvement in their work. However, more importantly, the kids enjoyed their sessions with Serena and constantly looked forward to tutoring time.
Serena has been tutoring my special needs boy for quite a while now. She has been so good, flexible, friendly yet firm and extremely patient. She is open to suggestions and tries different styles of teaching my challenging son. She has helped my son to develop his maths and english skills. Highly recommended👍
Serena is a lovely tutor.
Before my son start lessons with Serena he didn't like Math but now not just he loves it but he even win a Math competition at school.
He started to feel more confident just after a few sessions.
She is one of the most approachable people you will ever meet.
Is very hard to keep an 8 years old boy focused online but she did it.
Thank you Serena!
My daughter needed help with her Maths and i wanted to prepare her for the entrance exams for a variety of independant schools. My daughter definately gained confidence in Maths and this was borne out by the respose from her teacher and from how she startrd to approach the subject.
I have a very busy job and can't thank Serena enough for her patience as there were times i fogot extra sessions due to the pressures of my workload. She was very organised, prepared, diligent and focussed on the goals she had for my daughter.
Ultimately she was successful in helping my daughter gain a place one of the schools we had applied to.
I needed a tutor for my 10year old and came across Serena’s profile on childcare.co.uK. From her credentials/experience to her initial response I was really impressed and after a few tutoring sessions with my daughter I was not disappointed. She is very punctual, well prepared; has work set out beforehand and was open to going over work my daughter was lacking confidence in. She was able to spot areas of concern and address them head-on and so for these reasons I would definitely recommend this tutor as she genuinely cares about her work and your child’s learning/success.
