“Learning is about being shown where to look, not being told what to see.”
Hi! I am a nurturing and friendly private tutor (14+ years). My experience is supported by 6 years of secondary school teaching and 12+ years as an adult trainer.
My experience enables me to fine-tune my approach to individual student needs. I specialise in boosting confidence, increasing motivation and targeting the development of specific skills.
I’m a passionate teacher who believes that learning should be enjoyable, not a chore.
Can I guarantee results?
I can certainly guarantee an improvement in skills and confidence. In terms of actual results, this largely depends on how much work my students are able to put in.
Having said that, all of my GCSE students have seen an increase in their grades. For instance:
Chris (AQA English Language & Literature):
Achieved Grade 5
1 – 2 hours per week, more during half-term (3 months)
Amelia (Cambridge Nationals – Computing):
Predicted – B
Achieved – A
1 lesson per week, sometimes 2 (3 weeks)
