English Tutors in Kent and English Tutoring in Kent
I am a qualified Primary School teacher with a Masters degree in Eduction. I have taught for over 17 years in UK Primary and international schools - in both the State and Private sector. I have been head of Year Group and a recognised leader of technology and how it enhances learning outcomes. My core area of experience is with children from Year 3 - Year 6; I currently teach in Year 5. I am an inspiring and energetic teacher who can make any child feel excited by learning, no matter the subject. Moreover, I have many years of experience working with individual children helping them catch up or extend them beyond the regular classroom curriculum. My areas of interest are Mastery Maths, Creative Writing and Kent Test Preparation. I am also a National Tutoring Programme Teacher.

I live in Ashford Kent and I travel to your house to teach. I stopped full-time teaching after many happy and successful years to build my tutoring business and to share my extensive knowledge and experience through private tutoring as I would still like to make a difference in enabling children to achieve their full potential and to improve their levels. For tutoring, some children may be in need of curriculum catch-up, others may need their confidence building and some may need to prepare for the Kent test. I am very experienced in doing all of these either in short-term sessions or on a more long-term basis. Although I have taught all age groups, my teaching career also includes many years in Yr 5 and 6 which means I am experienced in the Literacy and Numeracy relevant to the 11+. From my previous 11+ tutoring, I am well acquainted with the content of the 11 plus exam and the strategies needed to succeed and I have the ability to prepare children for the demands of the test as well as up-levelling their writing and improving their maths and reading. For the Kent test, I will teach all of the types of Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Spatial Reasoning using the best strategies for success and speed, find any gaps in English and maths content and prepare the tutee thoroughly for the 11+ exam. Whichever learning your child needs, I will make it fun.

I have extensive experience teaching KS3, GCSE and A Level English and KS3 Drama. I previously taught the GCSE resits for six years. Over this period, I acquired a significant insight into the GCSEs and A Level programmes. I worked heavily with GCSE Level 3 students, supporting them to achieve Level 4 - 8. I have witnessed some incredible improvements in my students and was able to build one students confidence so they shot from Level 2 to a working Level 7 in a year of tuition. My A Level students gained a greater insight into the texts they studied because of my studies of Literature and Language at A level. I can help you or someone you know by scaffolding their knowledge of English - whatever area they may want help with. I have a strong background in poetry and creative writing. In particular, I can help develop skills required for GCSEs and A Level such as: CORE READING SKILLS: - Critical thinking and inference (how to interpret a text and words in particular) - Understanding language and structural features (both of which are integral to showing a knowledge of how texts work) - Deconstructing unseen texts (a key skill that the Language papers require) - Comparing/contrasting ideas in texts (the literature and language papers now put a heavy emphasis on this skill) CORE WRITING SKILLS: - PEA/PEE paragraphs (this connects with ESSAY writing as well) - Descri ptive writing - Non-fiction writing I can additionally offer more advanced skills such as: READING: - Advanced/sophisticated language and structural feature spotting - Applying context to literature (especially Victorian for the likes of `A Christmas Carol` and `Jekyll & Hyde`) WRITING: - Sophisticated and effective development of vocabulary (fiction and non-fiction) - Clever use of structural features to construct a story or descri ptive piece of writing I have been singing and playing the piano for over a decade and frequently accompany and musically direct my choir, individuals, and shows. I`ve recently obtained Grade 8 Music Theory and can offer lessons on piano/singing performance and technique, composition, improvisation and music theory.

I write material for 11+ tests and am a specialist tutor in this field. I have spent many years as a primary school teacher and as an English teacher at a top prep school, so cover maths, English and the 11+. If you would like to discuss issues surrounding the Kent Test and other 11+ tests around the country, I'd be delighted to help. I am currently looking to finalise my details for September as I find myself booked up well in advance. I have the largest battery of testing material that you will find anywhere as I have all the resources I've written for other organisations as well as that which is commercially available. My teaching style is patient and nurturing, with a strong focus on addressing the particular needs of tutees rather than following any sort of curriculum. The needs of the child supersede those of any tests or exams! I only teach from home as I have a young family, but will work online if required.

At Dynamics11plusTuition we offer high quality teaching in English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning. Getting through 11+ is all about guidance, practice and practice. We offer tips that have helped average students get into good grammar schools. We only take batches of 4-5 students in a homely environment as we believe that coaching in large batches of 10 to 30 students is no better than your child's school! We believe we can focus our attention when the batch size is small. All our teachers are Post graduate qualified, dbs checked and have kids who have made it to grammar schools in recent years. You can also get more info about us on our website. We offer a free assessment/trial class and if you have paid this website to find our details we will refund that fee. Our assessment is very different from other coaching centres as we will point you with super precision the areas your child currently needs to focus on to get into a grammar. Even if you join elsewhere this assessment info will be very valuable to you as a parent.
