An initial assessment will be undertaken during the first session in order to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses. This will allow an individualised programme of study to be devised.
Having taught children from primary, through secondary and further education of all abilities, I am qualified to teach students aged from 5 through to 19.
I am able to teach English, Maths, History, Geography, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
You will be informed on your child's performance regularly and they will be re-assessed regularly too. With the individualised programme of study targets will be set and explained to yourself and your child. This is essential in order to help them to improve.
Children are different and learn at different rates, so there isn't a set length of time. However you can be guaranteed that if your child has made the progress desired, you will be informed; so that you have value for money.
I ask for a week's notice, as sessions are planned in advance, so that any resources that require producing are available.
Sessions of an hour long are recommended for younger students, whereas older students may wish 90 minutes. Lessons are priced accordingly. For those wishing 90 minutes the slot from 7pm is available,
Homework is set, though this will reflect the child's age and requirements. For those sitting 11+ or external exams extra homework may be set. This will also help them to achieve independent study skills. As a mother myself I know that some schools do not set homework relying on students to revise themselves. However this does not give them a focus and generally means students don't do any home study.
I have a range of resources that are provided at my cost, such as text books, exercise books, worksheets and exam papers; as well as educational games and access to educational software. Should your child require a personal study book that they complete work in, I charge cost price which I feel is fair.
No! Your child's details and performance are kept totally private. Should you wish your child's teacher to email me to inform me on areas that require improvement, the decision is yours to make. Any software used to assess your child will be annonymised of your child's details. Your child's information will not be shared with anyone without your prior consent.
I have a success rate of 96% into selective schools on the basis that children have been attending for over 12 months.
I charge between £25 and £30 per hour depending upon the age of the student. Discounts are given for siblings taught at the same time.
As long as you notify me at least 24 hours in advance in case of illness. A week's notice of holidays allows me to be flexible for other students, should the occasion arise.
I continue tuition through school holidays, though obviously I take my own family holidays at some point. As my husband is a teacher too, this is restricted to school holidays and you will receive plenty of notice.
