I have more than 9 years of professional experience teaching in the British education system. I obtained my PGCE through the Teach First Leadership Development Programme and have an MA in Educational Leadership from the University of Warwick. Having held classroom teacher and leadership positions in UK schools for five years, I have a strong understanding of the British curriculum, academic standards and the SATs curricula.
Since 2019, I have been working as a fully independent professional private tutor and run my own successful business in London, mainly working with students to prepare for 7+, 11+, 13+ and 14+ school entrance exams. I have developed expert knowledge and understanding of what is required to be successful and curated a unique teaching style and approach to prepare successfully for these exams. While the school entrance system is growing increasingly competitive, the private tutoring industry is expanding and in more demand than ever before. As a fully independent private tutoring professional, I take pride in the unique selling points of my service:
Bespoke and tailored plans for each individual student’s needs and goals
Strong relationship building
Committed communication and personal support to families
My students have received offers for over 20 British schools, as follows:
Academy School Hampstead
Belmont Mill Hill
Cheltenham Ladies College
Chestnut Grove Academy
Dean Close School
St. Mary’s Ascot
St. Mary’s Calne
While I mainly work with students in preparation for school entrance exams, I work with other students with a diverse range of needs and goals. I create bespoke schemes of work for home-schooled students with a range of educational needs and am highly experienced working with students with Special Educational Needs, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, autism and ADHD.
I am highly experienced using the Atom Learning platform to support students at all levels
As a French speaker and having studied French in university, I tutor French at both primary and secondary level. I also work with high profile French-speaking corporate and political clients (adults) to improve their English speaking and listening skills.
I am highly practised and knowledgeable in child protection and safeguarding procedures, and have a strong ethical approach. I foster strong working relationships of mutual respect and understanding, and interdependency, with students' parents and families.
I have also taught in non-formal education contexts in Kolkata and The West Bank.
I have valuable teaching experience in a private international school in Dublin (Sutton Park School).
