Friendly, Experienced, High Achieving Teacher and Examiner

I enjoy working with students. I find it incredibly rewarding to see my students succeed. That's why I started tutoring and plan to continue, helping others.

Before I began tutoring, I taught in schools and colleges in London for years, both in challenging schools and in independent schools with entrance exams. In the schools with entrance tests, marking the entrance examination was part of my work. And in all the schools and colleges where I worked, preparing students for internal and public examinations was part of my day.

Because of my previous experience in teaching, I am very skilled in working out what each student needs and then supporting your or your child to overcome/break through any problems you may be having with specific subject areas or concepts. I am also able to bring a better quality study time, as I go back to basics to share proven tips and techniques, materials and resources which can aid success/overcome the stumbling blocks in your studies.

I'm a keen tutor, because I believe that tutoring can get to the core difficulties more quickly than in a different setting. I believe that any student can do well with a bit of motivation and the right guidance.

My students are unique and special; they like to work with a professional and have goals in their chosen subjects. They find that in return they receive the benefits that come from an expert, quality service - lessons which encourage higher levels of thinking, improves their skills and knowledge of their subject and one which they are happy to recommend to others.

I can provide help with all aspects of the core subjects I tutor and can ensure that enough work is covered and revisited to address problem areas.

For you, it means that you get a whole teacher to yourself - focused entirely on what you are struggling with. This is invaluable because when each lesson is tailored to your needs you can expect to experience more motivation to succeed and to see results faster than in other settings. One hour a week and homework may be all you need to get up to standard - or to boost your skills.

I believe that if you are worrying or struggling to learn something new, then someone able to support you at the right time can make all the difference and can be positively life-changing..

I totally believe that tutoring is about instilling confidence and hope to provide a relaxed and friendly environment - one where learning is fun - and you can enjoy the freedom to ask questions - big or small - in a safe environment. I have high expectations both of myself and the students I teach because I believe that this brings the best results.

When not tutoring I work part time as a teacher. Because of this, I can offer up to date to knowledge of the grading system of the new GCSE English and experience of how to teach it.

I have a background of guiding my students towards success and can provide excellent references

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing and music. I have a passion for words, art, drama and singing. I have prior experience of working in these areas and of running workshops in Drama and in Art.

I am sometimes called to teach lessons at short notice and because of this you may find it easier to book early to avoid disappointment.

To help you with your decision, I'm offering a time limited special discount on the first lesson to new students for a limited time only - please ask for details.

Please do feel free to get in touch If you have any issues that concern you or any questions..

Thank you for reading this profile.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you.

personal reference for Sandra Weinreb

I have known Sandra since 2010, both in a working & social capacity: I am a teacher with 40 years' experience. At all times I have found Sandra to be honest & reliable, with considerable expertise in her subject, and with all the patience, sensitivity, good humour and interpersonal skills required to make an excellent tutor. she is also a teacher with over 25 years experience and has previously taught in both academic institutions and as a personal tutor. I have also read and enjoyed Sandra's creative writing, about which she is highly informative and knowledgeable. she is extremely articulate with outstanding communication skills and I am certain both parents and students would greatly appreciate employing Sandra as a personal English tutor.
