About me

I completed A Levels in Classical Civilisation, French and Government and Politics, before going on to study Classical Studies and Politics at the University of Exeter, for which I achieved glowing results.

After a successful career in Events Management, including Windsor Castle,I completed a PGCE in Primary Education at the prestigious training provider of St Mary’s University College, Twickenham.

I am a dedicated teacher who has grown in all aspects of teaching since embarking on my career. I have risen to the challenges of teaching and believe that all children can reach their learning potential.

In my spare time, I enjoy travel and experiencing different cultures. I love to swim and run for charitable causes .

Tutor Experience



I worked extensively as a full-time teacher, in both the mainstream sectors and Independent Schools sector, covering both KS1 and KS2 throughout Surrey, London, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. She was also a PPA teacher and have taught a one to one intervention programmes in Surrey.

As a tutor, I believe in working on a personalised course of study working through use of past exam papers and interview questions, teaching students to answer the questions well and grow in confidence. As such, I have successfully coached children through 7+, 11+ and 13+ examinations including up to scholarship level. Her past students have gained entry to the Royal Grammar School Guildford, Eton College, St James School Ashford, Halliford School, Shepperton, St Catherine’s School, Bramley and St George’s College, Weybridge.

I am now a specialist one to one and online tutor working with students in preparation for Independent School Entrance examinations at 7+, 11+,13+ along with the 11+ Examinations for Grammar Schools. For the 7+ I have prepared students for both the Mathematics and English examinations. At 11 + I have prepared children for the Mathematics, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning tests. At 13 + Common Entrance I help students to prepare for the English Writing and Reading Comprehension Examinations. I have also supported children across the Primary Curriculum, developing their understanding and skill set in order to boost their confidence and prepare them for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 SATS in Mathematics and English at the end of Primary School.
I am a qualified TEFL teacher who has prepared students face to face for the Cambridge Advanced English Examinations.

I am an empathetic and enthusiastic tutor who always strives to help my tutees become the best that they can be!

Testimonials

Salvatore:- My teacher taught me how to answer English papers. I became confident and my grades improved dramatically and she helped me to secure a scholarship to the Royal Grammar School. This is a real achievement because my family do not speak English at home.

Leah:- I am certain that Leah has made lots of improvement since you have been working with her and she is more confident about the step up to Secondary School as well. Thank you for your help, Mrs N We were very pleased with Leah's SATS results. She got 5b in Reading, 4b in writing, 4 in SPAG and 5c in Maths. Thank you for helping her achieve these great results. Best Wishes, Mrs N
