I began my tutoring career in 2005 after graduating from Oxford. Within a year was working in a full-time one-to-one tuition school, where I taught children who did not fit into the mainstream education system. Consequently this gave me invaluable experience and the ability to cope with a wide variety of educational needs and behavioural challenges. My main focus has been on entrance exams into senior schools at 11 plus. Subsequently I have an extensive and in-depth knowledge of the requirements and unique demands of these highly competitive tests. My academic background in both English and Maths means I can prepare children for both parts of the exam, ensuring continuity for them. Although the nature of my recent work has been to do with exam preparation, I also believe that tutoring is a fantastic way to boost general confidence. In addition I teach English and Maths at 13 plus and GCSE and English and Drama at A Level.
