Jem - Surbiton - School English

Methodology

Each child needs to feel confident with good self esteem in order to feel successful academically. When they can see their rapid progress and a greater understanding in 11+ subjects, they grow braver and more confident, with the edge to succeed!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Maths, English (Comprehension expert!), Verbal and non-verbal reasoning

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BSc in Geography from Kingston
PGCE 7-11 from Kingston

- How much do you charge?

£45-50 per hour depending on location

- Where do you teach?

I live in Surbiton and am happy to travel to your home or teach from mine - which ever is easiest for you.
Will teach in Kingston, Surbiton, Thames Ditton, Esher, Claygate - i.e. within a few miles of Surbiton

- When are you available?

I am available from 12th July for the duration of the Summer Holidays - often the best time for an 11+ boost. Possible availability through to December at weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Years 5 and 6 heading towards 11+

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Having tuition doesn't have to be a burden. I will always make it engaging, motivating and fun. You will feel so much more confident as you head back into school each time we have had a lesson! ... AND you will be ready for 11+

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have 12 years experience teaching KS2 in the state sector and currently 12 years teaching in the Independent Prep School sector primarily to Year 5 and 6 children heading towards 11+. I understand the worries and anxiety issues around 11+ entrance exams... for children and parents. Often there are gaps in a child's understanding, which means they are unstable in developing their later knowledge. Securing this and building on 11+ exam technique and practice questions puts them in the right frame of mind to confidently tackle 11+. I have a raft of tips, techniques and resources with which to tackle 11+ exams - and current, relevant knowledge of what the schools require.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a full enhanced DBS

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) and a member of the Independent Association of prep Schools (IAPS)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

The children I currently work with gain successful entry to:
Hampton, Lady Eleanor Holles, Kingston Grammar, Surbiton High, Ibstock Place, St Paul's (previously Colet Court), St Paul's Girls, Latymer, Godolphin and Latymer, NHEHS, Kew House school, ST James' boys and Girls.
