Since joining Keystone in 2019, I have successfully prepared students both in person and online for 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ examinations for schools such as Eton, Harrow, St Paul’s Girls, Latymer Upper, Godolphin & Latymer, JAGS, Benenden, Winchester, Wetherby Prep, Rugby and City of London.
I previously taught in a London primary school focusing on KS2 learning and serving on the Senior Leadership Team. As the lead for Mathematics, Computing and Philosophy, I spent many hours analysing academic gaps and then breaking down the needed steps to support colleagues with their mastery teaching. This balanced nicely with guiding children through the philosophical inquiry process to develop critical thinking with reasoned justification.
Through my 15+ years of classroom teaching experience (ages 2 through 18) I have successfully navigated a huge variety of subjects and learning challenges. I have a thorough knowledge of the current UK Primary curriculum scope and sequence as it relates to independent school entrance exams. From my years leading Mathematics, I have extensive training in the ‘Singapore Method’ and Bar Modelling and have passed this onto other teachers.
Working with teenagers is another joy of mine as I recently worked for the UK’s National Citizen Service, teaching teens the skill of telling someone else’s story (empathy). Previously, I spent six years in Canada developing curriculum at the secondary level for Dance and Musical Theatre alongside teaching the core academics (Mathematics, History, English, AVID).
