I started working as a nanny in 2015 and soon realised that homework and exam help is a huge part of the role. I have looked after children ranging in age from 3-12 and have covered all of their homework subjects including Maths, English, History and Science as well as helping a student with his 11+ exam to Emanuel.

My Approach to Private Tuition
My tutoring style is all about making the student feel at ease. I’m really passionate about encouraging young people to have more self confidence, and I think achieving academically is absolutely a way in which they can do that. When I was younger I always remember being too self conscious in school to put my hand up and tell the teacher where I was confused or struggling, and being too afraid to ask a question.
As a tutor myself now, I think a tutoring lesson is the place to get things wrong and ask as many questions as you want, so I want to make sure my students can do this without feeling embarrassed. I’m a very patient person and like to take my time with my students, finding out how they learn best, how I best can help them, and making sure they fully understand and feel confident with each section we are studying. I like to make my lessons as engaging and creative as possible, to create a strong link between having fun and learning, and I find my experience as a drama student and actor lends me the skills to do this!
