I teach maths and English to students aged 5-14 years. I am happy to teach from the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence or from the National Curriculum, having had experience of delivering both.

I use a video conferencing tool called Zoom to teach online lessons.

I am a firm believer in having fun while we work, so I can promise that my lessons will be fun and engaging.

If you feel you struggle with maths, reading, spelling or writing, I know I can help you to perform better and eel more confident in your own ability. I can make learning fun!

I have 25 years of teaching experience. I worked in schools in England between 1993 and 2010, holding several senior management posts including two deputy headships.

- Tell me about some of your current students.
I work with all sorts of students, including children with Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADHD and ASD. Most of my current students are face-to-face but I also do have some online home-educated students at the moment.
From the start Elaine was friendly towards both my son and I, I had recently removed my son from school through anxiety, bullying and not getting on with starting secondary school so he needed a gentle approach and he himself said after the assessments with Elaine she was the nicest teacher he'd ever had !
Elaine is very accommodating if at the last minute my son isn't in the right head space for a lesson, it is no problem to re-arrange it.
I would highly recommend Elaine.
Elaine is friendly and professional. She has an encouraging approach and my son really enjoys the lessons with her and is learning well.
Elaine is such a lovely woman and excellent in what she does would highly recommend her for a child who might need a little extra tutoring in maths or English.
