I am a fully qualified teacher, with over 10 years experience in the classroom. My expertise is in Year 6, but I have taught all years from Year 1 to Year 6. I am very familiar with the 11+, having taught in both Kent and the West Midlands. Please get in touch and I’d be more than happy to devise a course to maximise your child’s learning!

How would you describe your teaching style?

Learning with me is very thorough - I will ensure the basics are well-grounded before moving onto more challenging learning. Challenge is the key to stimulating learning and feeling a true sense of achievement. Of course, that isn’t to say that learning can’t also be fun! I like to think that I have a great sense of humour. Learners tend to look forward to my lessons!

What qualifications do you have?

I am a fully qualified Primary Teacher, with a degree in Primary Education, English and Drama from Kingston University.

Tell us about your experience...

I have been teaching in the classroom for over 10 years, across schools in London, Kent and the West Midlands. This included some time as a “lead practitioner” in a challenging and underperforming primary school, where in addition to teaching full time, I was also tasked with helping colleagues to improve their own teaching. The majority of my years have been spent working with Year 6, although I do have experience teaching from Year 1 upwards (including 3 years with lower key stage 2). I have also been ICT / Computing co-ordinator in 4 schools, over the last 9 years.

What locations do you tutor in?

Across the West Midlands. I will consider neighbouring counties, for a slightly higher hourly rate, to cover travelling expenses. Please get in touch to discuss.

What is your personal message to students?

If you love learning... Or you want to love learning... Then I’m your man! I love learning just as much as I love teaching, and I think that’s the best kind of teacher that you can get.
