What I Do
I am passionate about teaching children how to write well!
English is the love of my life. I believe that every child can be taught to write creatively and to enjoy reading. Learning English is not just about passing eleven plus exams. It is about learning how to communicate effectively, whether that is transporting your reader to another world or winning someone over to your point of view.
Children will prepare for all types of writing and reading comprehension as demanded by different schools for the eleven plus. Drawing on an extensive bank of materials, I tailor the tuition to suit your child's strengths and weaknesses.
I place a strong emphasis on spelling, punctuation, grammar and vocabulary through a varied mix of games and activities. I focus on exam technique using past and practice 11+/pre-test papers and offer advice on interview preparation.
Private bespoke teaching is a fantastic option for children who need more individual approach. After an initial assessment, I create a tailored plan of tuition for you child so that we can focus on their particular needs.
