I really enjoy working with children and building up their confidence with maths. My teaching experience has been with children at Key Stage 2 in Mathematics; taking one from below average to above average in one year.

I work to reinforce the learning from school; introducing new topics or working with school for the benefit of your child.

Working with teachers is possible together with working with reports and recommendations from the school.

I have been teaching since 2000 where I worked in the community; teaching adults of all ages from 18 years.

- Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students are primarily girls, aged 9/10 and mathematics. I do however do reading and english with other students. I find that the reinforcement, 121 and relaxed yet productive hours increase confidence both in themselves as well as their attitude to the subject. Visible results are seen by both parents and teachers alike.
Just a quick note to say thank you for all the work you have done with Estelle.
Her confidence has improved greatly and she now has a better understanding of all the key areas that you covered.
Estelle really enjoyed your sessions and they are never a chore for her. You managed to make the work fun and has a really good rapport with her.
I would not hesitate to recommend your services.
Michelle has been tutoring my 10 year old son in maths for 4 months. I (and my son's teacher) have noticed a marked improvement in my son's ability to tackle math tasks, whereas previously he didn't have the confidence or understanding to even try. This [much needed] confidence boost has had such a visible positive impact on my son too.
... no hesitation in recommending Michelle to any parents considering private tuition for their children.
Michelle is an excellent tutor. She not only has the knowledge and expertise to deliver structured and well planned lessons tailored to our son's specific needs, but, just as importantly, also has the patience of a saint!
