I am an experienced and fully qualified secondary school teacher. I have given up mainstream teaching to look after my two very young children, and I now enjoy the variety that comes with being a tutor. I have a kind and caring nature and a bright and positive demeanour; which I use to help draw the best out of those with whom I work. I have excellent communication skills and maintain high standards. I am highly professional, extremely reliable, and hard-working. I have experience of teaching a range of subjects from primary to A-Level and Pre-U.
I have worked as a fully qualified teacher of Modern Languages, Art History and tutor in a highly competitive, selective London Independent school for the past 6 years. I had an excellent reputation, my students achieved outstanding results; and I enjoyed a very good working relationship with students and colleagues alike.
I tailor my sessions to the specific needs of the individual; setting objectives that are reviewed at the end of each lesson. I like to break topics down into manageable chunks to avoid a student feeling overwhelmed and to build confidence. I enjoy using a variety of activities to encourage prolonged engagement and aid learning.
