About me

I have a love of theatre and encourage everyone to push their boundaries and challenge themselves.

Tutor Experience

I have worked in the commercial business world and gained experience before moving into my passion for teaching. I want to concentrate on turning students I Can't statements into I Can, I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve they just need the correct guidance and that all important Mindset. Each student is different and gains the knowledge and understanding in different ways, as a tutor it is my job to find that way and release that potential.


My approach to teaching is to find the right method for the student. I believe each student has their own style of learning and we need to harness that style in order to succeed. I discuss the needs of the student and then assess the ability through a test. From the results I create a individual learning plan, using this plan we work together to find the best learning style ( practical, theory based, written, spoken, mix of styles) to turn the student from a knowledge and understanding into a expert and evaluator. I aim to have my students having a positive growth mindset and leave saying I Can do that!

Topic Expertise

Business Studies. I taught business studies in schools for 10 years before moving into private tutoring. I have taught students in GCSE Business following the specifications of Edexcel, AQA and OCR and IGCSEs. I have taught level 3 qualifications in A level specification for AQA, Edexcel and OCR and Btec/Cambridge Nationals. My approach to business is to ensure students can see the link between the theory and practical business using example from the real world. Taking onboard my years working within the business sectors, I use this to create the link between the theory and practical, giving students a wholistic approach to their studies. Running along side this we focus on building up exam technique focusing on the style of questions for the specific exam board.

Computer Science/ICT: Again having taught this subject in schools prior to moving into private tutoring I have a range of knowledge and expertise for the topic. I have taught Computer Science up to GCSE level and covered the exam boards of OCR, AQA and Edexcel. For ICT I have covered this up to Level 3 qualifications combining both A level and Btec/Cambridge Nationals. Working in industry has enabled me to see the benefit of excellent ICT and Computer Science knowledge and allows me to show the relevance of the theory in practical real life situations.

Maths: I started my first teaching job as a Maths and Business teacher in an inner city school. This experience enabled me to see how important differentiation was when teaching. I developed different methods to enable students to grasp and understand the mathematical terms and techniques. I have taught maths up to GCSE higher level and covered the specifications of Edexcel, OCR and AQA and IGCSEs. I have also taught children and adults in functional skills numeracy. I currently tutor maths for KS2 to KS4 and the 11+.

English: I have tutored students in schools and through private tutoring in English Language and Literature to A level standard. I have followed the specifications of AQA, Edexcel and OCR and IGSCEs. I have also tutored children and adults in functional skills Literacy. I currently tutor students in English from KS2 to KS5 and the 11+

11+: I have been coaching students for the 11+ GL and CEM specifications for 5 years. Using lots of practical examples and previous test papers to help build students knowledge and confidence. I focus on each of the areas needed for the specific schools exam. Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning, Non Verbal Reasoning and where needed Creative Writing.

My daughter really struggled with maths but with help from Nikki she went into her GCSE maths exam with confidence. Elaine My daughter is dyslexic and struggles with most subjects. However after only a few months of tuition with Nikki she has come on leaps and bounds. She is now average or above average in all subjects. She also has more confidence, and loves going to her class. A fabulous tutor with bundles of knowledge...would certainly recommend.
