About Cecile

Fully qualified teacher with many years teaching experience

Hi there, as a fully qualified teacher with many years experience in and out of the classroom, I am keen to share my knowledge and experience in a range of subjects; English, Mathematics, Art, French, Mandarin Chinese, Reception/KS1 Primary to GCSE level. One-to-one provides a safe, comfortable space in which an individual can fill gaps or misconceptions in a subject area or, extend prior learning and thus the rewards are plenty - renewal of self-confidence, reaching one's true potential and increased happiness! I also have experience with a range of SEN, such as Autism, ADHD and Behavioural and Emotional difficulties.

Furthermore, I enjoy successfully providing support for the 7+, 8+, 11+, Common Entrance and Public School entrance examinations. including English composition techniques and comprehensions, Mathematics, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning and am pleased many of my students have successfully gained places to their first choice school, including City of London, King's College Wimbledon, Dulwich College, James Allen's Girls' School and Alleyn's School. I provide guidance in English GCSE coursework, exam technique in essay writing, structuring and comprehension. In addition, I am passionate about teaching and learning Mandarin Chinese, and have a Teacher Training Certificate from the East Normal University in Shanghai, in collaboration with the Confucius Institute at the IOE.

I am happy to provide excellent references from London-based as well as internationally- based clients.

Flexible and attentive

Written by Stephanie McIvor O
Cecille came to revise maths teach verbal reasoning and support my 9 year old with general exam technique. Cecille was able to identify my son's strengths and weaknesses and made an impact quickly with regards to building his confidence and then successfully stretching him to deal with some topics that he struggled with in a calm and positive manner. Cecille was very flexible when it came to marking work that my son had completed but needed constructive feedback, from which he could learn. In addition Cecille helped prepare my 9 yr old for his first interview for 10+ entry. It was easy working with Cecille and my son bonded with her quickly as she listened and watched his performance and mood with care. I would recommend Cecille to tutor for 10+ entry .
