Creative and friendly Art/English Tutor

A creative and friendly tutor with a passion for art and the English language.

I have been tutoring children at primary level in English and Maths since March 2016 and have built up a strong client base of 12 students per week. Topics range from phonics and number play at reception level to comprehension, creative writing and verbal reasoning as chidren gear up to the all important 11+ exams.

Although I have enjoyed tutoring Maths at this level, I am now looking to focus my tuition on English as it is this area which I most enjoy tutoring due to the creativity of the subject and the potential of language to inspire young minds to express themselves, once the minds in question have been given a nudge in the right direction!

I have experience of preparing children for the 7+, 8+ and 11+ at a range of London day schools including St Pauls, Lady Eleanor Hollis, Latymer and UCS.

I am also a practising artist and have run family workshops exploring figure drawing, portraiture and urban regeneration. My current practice focuses on using painting and printmaking to explore portraiture and the human figure. I am passionate about art and art history and enjoy any opportunity to share this passion with others.

I have a BA in History of Art from the University of Cambridge/Goldsmiths, am currently studying towards a Diploma in Portraiture at the Heatherley School of Fine Art and will begin an MFA in Fine Art at City and Guilds Art School in September 2017.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Flora Malpas - A wonderful tutor

Flora has been helping my 7 year old daughter for a year with English and Maths for a year now. She is very patient, detailed and has a wonderful approach to children. She is very thoughtful and engages with each child differently thinking about techniques that will promote attention ( especially in young ages) . She is always prepared for the lessons with resources and materials. Flora is always professional and on time, we have had a marvellous experience with her. A truly exceptional tutor. Highly recommended.

Reference for Flora

Flora has been coming once a week for an hour for 6 months to help out with our 6 year old boy. We were hoping that a little extra work at home would help his confidence at school, especially his reading.
ln short, Flora has been fantastic. She has been a tremendous help in letting us get to know our boy's strength and weaknesses in terms of his learning. She built a curriculum to meet his needs with very little direction from us. We feel very lucky to have her support us with navigating his learning at home. Importantly, our little boy trusts her and wants to work with her - although naturally bemoaning having to do any work at home, but Flora handles this admirably.
Subject:
Seven Plus
Outcome:
Really grateful parents and a little boy who is growing in his confidence academically.
