* “Chelsea was at all times well-prepared and professional, and spent a lot of time finding the right materials for the maximum impact. We would have no hesitation in using her again.” Father of 11+ student
* “Chelsea was fantastic in helping her learn the new material and practice her exam technique — her calm and reassuring approach was critical in helping boost our daughter’s confidence in what would have otherwise been a very daunting process. I would wholeheartedly recommend Chelsea as a tutor. Whether it is for significant assistance or a simple refresher on specific topics, your child will be in good hands!” Mother of 11+ student
* “Chelsea’s ability to connect with my son and her talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior. She is extremely organized and reliable and also she was flexible enough to change the flow of the lesson by taking our wishes into account.” Mother of 11+ Student

My Passion And How I Inspire
I’m a creative, sensitive tutor and I believe that each tutee needs an individual approach, tailored to their strengths and weaknesses, and to their personality. My approach is to assess a student’s level, and then to work by both increasing their confidence in areas they feel strong in, and by breaking down areas they find difficult into simple, manageable steps.
