I am a professional, qualified teacher and experienced private tutor offering 1:1 tuition in:

  • Maths and English (7 to 14 year olds and adults)
  • French and Spanish (7 to 14 year olds and adults)
  • English for the IELTS Life Skills and Academic exams

During my career I have taught in state mainstream schools, special schools and independent schools, as well as in one of Birmingham’s universities.

I have an excellent record in helping children to achieve good progress. I am passionate about the subjects I teach and I feel that pupils pick up on and respond to this. My approach and teaching style enthuse and motivate children to learn, and I also make targeted use of games to make learning fun.

My major strengths are:

  • my ability to quickly build a strong rapport with my pupils,
  • my skills and creativity in communicating ideas and information,
  • my empathy and patience in working to ensure understanding
  • my dedicated and organised attitude to work.

I have a degree in French and Spanish from the University of Nottingham, and I gained my PGCE from Newman University College in Birmingham.  I am also a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.

I have a Level 2 qualification in British Sign Language, and experience of working with Deaf and hearing-impaired. I also have Level 2 qualifications in Understanding Autism and in Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties as well as experience working with children with dyslexia and ADHD.
