About Me

Welcome families and care givers. I am an English and maths tutor (national curriculum based) and music teacher based in North London with a specialism in working with individuals with SEND. I also run a private tuition and performing arts company and work with an amazing team who are highly skilled and qualified to deliver all of the above

I started in primary education as a teaching assistant and progressed in my career to a cover teacher specialising in English and Maths. Alongside my full time job as a teacher I have been a private tutor for 10+ years teaching English, maths, CELTA/ESOL/TEFL and now offering singing and piano lessons. I specialise in raising children’s attainment levels and performance ability.

I chose this profession because as a child I struggled with my confidence levels which affected my schooling. This allows me to be empathetic towards children dealing with similar circumstances and as a result; can see clearly how to help those children by boosting their self-esteem and confidence, as well as helping those who just need extra learning!

Outside of my work in education, I am also a professional musician and teach children and adults piano, ukulele, singing/performance skills and song-writing.

Music isn’t just for those who want a career in it but can also work well for speech impediments and confidence building. I have a few clients that I work with to help with their speech impediments. I have seen vast improvements in their speech and confidence which I’m over the moon about and we have lots of fun at the same time!!

I thoroughly enjoy my work with children and feel privileged to watch them progress and mature into confident and able individuals.

I am SEN trained and am able to tailor learning for all children regardless of ability, being all inclusive is very important to me!

I also offer babysitting for children from 6 months to teenage years and have many repeat clients. I am a driver and happy to travel. Any questions please feel free to ask.

Gemma is a very experienced tutor. she is very patient and, engages. When Gemma contacted me, I was very sceptical but Gemma has cleared that up and exceeded my expectation.

My son's has speech and Lanague delay and low cencentration. But with Gemma, it is as if he has no obstacles at all; he is engaged, focus for a whole hour and he enjoys every bit of his session.
He has improved so much and, this is reflecting to his work at school. He looks forward to his sessions every week.
I highly recommend Gemma. She is lovely and excellent at tutoring.

My daughter who is 3.5 years old does zoom piano lessons with Gemma.
Gemma is highly enthusiastic and brings a lot of energy to my daughter's lesson. She is very engaging and has a lot of patience.
Gemma sings and plays very melodiously.
We are very happy to have found her on childcare.
