Using formative and summative assessments to provide detailed diagnostic feedback and comprehensive strategies, Mena is successful in guiding each student to achieve their potential.

Mena is a highly motivated professional, possessing excellent tutoring and mentoring skills combined with a proven track record for delivering timely results, with attention to detail. Throughout her teaching career, she has enjoyed helping students reach their academic goals and is confident in applying her approach to 7+, 8+ & 11+ preparation to ensure students gain entrance to the top tier independent schools.
