Prefer to have your daughter or son coached by an experienced, qualified teacher? Happy to help you. I have served in both the state and the independent sectors and, as a private tutor, I have prepared many children for the entrance examinations to such schools as Christ's Hospital, Chigwell, Merchant Taylors, Haberdashers, St Albans and St Columba's College. Children in the state sector also have KS1 and KS2 tests for which to prepare and, in some cases, the 11+ entry test for Hertfordshire Consortium schools. I also provide tutoring for GCSE in Religious Studies and English Language. Before attempting any exams it is most important that a student of any age feels confident in all areas of the National Curriculum. Thus I will spend the necessary time covering numeracy, literacy, verbal and non-verbal reasoning according to individual need. As education progresses it is vital that GCSE candidates can express their ideas cogently and accurately under time pressure. Badly expressed exam answers are frequently the cause of low marks in subjects such as Religious Studies where concepts are abstract but demand precise and carefully crafted sentences.

Tell us about your experience...
Trained for teaching as a mature student after working in London in commerce, law and publishing. I have taught in both the state and the independent sectors. The latter included responsibility for marking and moderating open competition entry tests to the school. My earliest pupils have fulfilled longed-for ambitions to enter such careers as: Veterinary Medicine, Journalism, the RAF and Business.
What locations do you tutor in?
Pupils travel to me from Watford, Garston, Leavesden, Abbots Langley and Kings Langley but they could travel from anywhere in South-West Hertfordshire, South Buckinghamshire or North-West London.
