I am a Deputy Head (Academic) who specialises in Primary Education. My lessons are based in problem solving and building self-confidence. I offer three services: English and Maths (£55 per session) English is structured around understanding and then applying knowledge of syntax, orthography and effective language choices. I will help the child to use this knowledge to improve their written work. Maths is structured around a topic. I will adjust the focus according to the individual child’s needs e.g. building confidence, filling particular gaps or answering mathematical reasoning questions. 11 Plus (£60 per session) I will assess the pupil’s ability against the requirements of their preferred schools’ entrance exam, then build a medium-term plan which caters for their needs. This usually involves a mixture of English, maths, reasoning and interview practise. Home Learning (£250 per week) The pupil logins to my virtual classroom (Zoom) for one hour each morning for a check-in, live teaching and setting the activities for the day. Further live sessions may be necessary to ensure continued engagement. The week is structured by five days of learning activities covering all National Curriculum subjects except Music and MFL. An emphasis is placed on English, maths and ICT.
