Extensive experience both as a teacher and tutor in the following;

I am a Durham, Cambridge and Roehampton educated teacher and tutor, and have recently completed a second Masters degree in Medieval Studies at King’s College London.
I completed my PGCE at Cambridge before working at Maidwell Hall in Northamptonshire as an English, maths, art and history teacher, before moving to London where I spent seven years teaching upper KS2 at Thomas's Kensington.
During this time I worked as Head of History and Creative Curriculum Leader as well as teaching Maths, English, Reasoning and the Humanities to Years 4, 5 and 6. I also worked as a core part of the future schools development team and as such I have an in-depth knowledge of the requirements for all exam preparation up to the 11+, 13+ and Common Entrance, and am particularly strong in working with scholarship children on history, English and interview preparation.
During my time at Thomas’s I also completed an MA in Educational Practice at Roehampton University, specialising in assessment techniques and nurturing creativity which has helped to shape and inform my practice over the subsequent years.
I also have extensive experience of supporting children with a range of abilities, working with SEND children both as a teacher and tutor, developing English language skills for EAL children, and in exam and interview preparation for 11+ and 13+, including scholarship exams, to many London day schools and British boarding schools, including, St Paul's, Westminster, Francis Holland, Latymer, Putney High School, King's Wimbledon, Dulwich, Queensgate, Eton, Wycombe Abbey, Ampleforth, Westminster, St Mary's Ascot, Fettes, Sedbergh, Radley, St Edward's Oxford and Uppingham.
