I have over 600 hours of tutoring experience, spread over a period of five years. My subjects are Maths, English, Reasoning and Latin. I specialise in exam preparation, training students for school entry at 7+, 8+, 10+, 11+ and 13+. I also provide ongoing support for students alongside their school work, building up their confidence in specific areas they find difficult.
I have supported students as they prepare for a range of the country’s top public schools and London day schools, including Eton, Radley, Winchester, Westminster, City of London, St. Paul’s, Highgate, and many others.
My approach is to focus on the fundamental skills that will serve students throughout their education, and beyond. The ability to work out problems ‘in the moment’ through clear reasoning (rather than from memory) applies equally well to English, Maths, Latin and the other subjects. It is always a matter of confidence, since reason is innate in all people. There are also a few basic skills which, once internalised and made habitual, tend to make a significant positive difference to the student’s academic performance.
