- 11+ Maths and English training with Keystone
I have over 5 years' experience tutoring Maths and Science from KS2 to A Level - covering the National Curriculum and AQA, OCR and Edexcel exam boards, and have helped pupils with their 11+ entry to schools such as Whitgift and Harrow. I have home-schooled pupils in Maths and Science at KS3 and GCSE. I have undertaken pro bono work at Godolphin and Latymer, helping prepare pupils for their Maths 11+ through The Bridge programme. I took part in the “Science into Schools” programme at Durham University, teaching Year 6 Science at a local primary school. I have helped pupils feel comfortable with daunting transitions such as between primary and secondary school, and from secondary school into 6th form. I was also a Nursery practitioner for two years, helping pre-schoolers learn to read and write, introducing Numeracy and Science.
I have just finished an MSc MSc in Neuroscience at King’s College London and was awarded Distinction, and the Henry McIlwain Best Poster Award. I graduated Durham University with a 2:1 in Natural Sciences (Mathematics and Biology).
I grew up on the south coast in a tiny village in Hampshire and went to Sherborne Girls School where I achieved 9A* and 1A at GCSE; A*AA in A Level Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry respectively. I took AS Level French and Classical Civilisation and was awarded a 6th form academic scholarship.
I have been tutoring for the past five years alongside studying and have absolutely loved it!

28/11/2022: How to Get a 9 in GCSE Physics
I aim to improve pupils’ confidence in their own abilities to help make STEM subjects seem much less daunting. I strive to create an environment where pupils feel able to ask questions and be themselves. My online tutorials make the most of interactive online whiteboards and quizzes, so pupils can engage with the content in the same way as they would in person. In both scenarios I tailor tutorials to each individual student’s needs, helping them find their own passion and enjoyment in the subject.
What I do when I am not tutoring
I love acting – I completed LAMDA to Grade 8 at school and have been in productions in the West End. I enjoy finding new places to eat and am always trying to become a better cook. I played lacrosse throughout both school and university.
To be honest, it is the most professionally conducted tutoring team that we have ever encountered. My daughter really enjoys her sessions with Grace and I believe is making good progress towards her ultimate objective of securing a Grade 9 in her GCSE results. My daughter's feedback is that Grace is friendly, responsive, accommodating and just lovely. Moreover, she is extremely clear, helpful and a talented tutor/teacher.
“Grace is an excellent tutor with an impressive ability to develop a trusted connection with both of us (parent and student). She is very knowledgeable, supportive, and encouraging. My daughter has gained confidence since working with Grace. Highly recommend!” (Mother of GCSE Science pupil)
“Grace always helps me so much and I have improved in Maths a lot since starting with her!” (KS3 Maths pupil)
“You have been my most favourite tutor ever! I really wish you well in the future and it will be so hard to find a tutor as brilliant as you!” (KS3 Maths pupil)

''Grace, you are an excellent tutor! Thanks for all you are doing to help my daughter understand some difficult concepts at a time when schools are also struggling to keep up!'' (Mother of GCSE Maths pupil)
''[Pupil] did exceptionally well, much better than she thought. She was absolutely elated with her combined sciences! And once again, thank you so much for your support in such a brilliant achievement, you certainly helped her to get there. She will have no problem in moving on to 6th Form in September.'' (Mother of GCSE Science pupil)
“First lesson was great she was very understanding, and she is great at explaining things in a way I can understand.” (GCSE Science pupil)
“Amazing teacher” (GCSE Science pupil)
