Super Duper Tutor
Learning is a journey: from facts we gain knowledge, which leads to understanding, and eventually, wisdom
From a family full of creative people, I love to learn, create and explore. Born in Cape Town, I love the outdoors, the seaside, colour, texture and food. I finished primary school in England and then went to Simon Langton Grammar School for Girls in Canterbury, Kent. At Brighton University I studied Interior Architecture, and then moved on to study International Event Management. After working in the Events industry for a while, my desire to learn brought me back into education, this time teaching it. Alongside working in a handful of outstanding Prep schools in London and Canterbury, Kent, I worked as a Private Tutor. Although I love the school environment for many reasons, I have found my 1-2-1 and small group tutoring the most rewarding, for both myself and the student.
I am now pursuing this passion as a full time Tutor, working as a Governess, Vacation Tutor and online or in-person Private Tutor. I am based in London.
What I Provide & What I Believe In
I have three great 'loves' in my role as an educator: love of learning, love of learners, and the love of bringing the first two loves together.
I believe the art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery. Come and join me for your own, tailored journey.
KS2 Maths Tutoring (Yrs 3-6)
Common Entrance 7+, 8+, 11+ , SATs, ISEB, National Curriculum
As Mathematics is a hierarchical subject, if a concept is a little wobbly, further learning can become confusing and can lead to a knock in confidence.
Maths can be frustrating; concepts can be hard to understand at first and often it just takes a little bit of time and effort to get a student to the point of understanding. We all have different ways of learning and I understand the importance of quickly discovering how my students learn, to enable me to communicate and teach effectively. As a Cognitive Coach, I use approaches to learning that will not only fill in those gaps to help it all make sense, your child will take away approaches to independent learning and problem-solving to use in all areas of their lives.
