Feeling frustrated about the progress of your child? Are they struggling to read? Do they panic with numbers or forget 'how to do' something? Do you feel they are overlooked at school? I can't promise a miracle cure but when you book me you and your child will have my undivided attention. In addition I am qualified to teach English, for example, IELTS and Business English. Bringing the best out of people and a passion to see them learn are what motivate me the most. Looking for a tutor? Look no further!

Tell us about your experience...

I learned my craft in the Primary sector, which I was in for over 30 years. I have experience of teaching children all through the Primary age range and from all kinds of backgrounds. In addition I have mentored college students and NQT's, giving me a breadth of understanding of how children learn and of the range of teaching strategies to facilitate this. Since 2015 I have successfully tutored students 1:1 promoting their English and Maths and English language skills. Since May 2018, I have tutored in the homes of resettled refugees, improving essential speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, supporting them in settling into their new cultural environment.

What locations do you tutor in?

Online - so anywhere! Pre-Covid I taught mostly within an approximate ten mile radius of Talbot Green CF72

What is your personal message to students?

The best learning takes place when there's a great rapport between student and teacher, when the student is motivated and when the teacher has a good understanding of how the student learns best. I always seek to quickly build rapport, to inspire my students and get to know their learning needs. Looking for a tutor? Look no further!
