About Helen

I am a qualified teacher of English with over 18 years’ experience, including as a Head of Department, Whole School Literacy Manager and Key Stage Three Coordinator. My teaching has been consistently been graded outstanding in lesson observations, with pupils making rapid and measurable progress.

After gaining my degree in English Literature and then a PGCE in Secondary English from the University of London Institute of Education, I obtained Qualified Teacher Status and began my teaching career.

A key strength is my diversity of teaching experience: I have taught over 2000 students between the ages of 8 to 18 and have expertise in working with pupils of all levels of ability. I have prepared pupils for 11+, 13+, GCSE, A-level and International Baccalaureate qualifications, as well as Oxbridge entry.

I have taught at very challenging schools - such as one featured on the TV show ‘Tough Young Teachers’ as well as highly academic schools, such as Dulwich College Preparatory School, where I prepared pupils for entrance examinations for competitive schools such as Eton, Harrow and Westminster. Most recently, I spent five years teaching at Northwood College for Girls.

To date, I have a 100% success rate at getting students who have regular lessons with me into their first choice of school. I also have a proven track record of helping virtually all students achieve or exceed their ambitious target grades for GCSE and A-level. In addition, I have five years’ experience as an 11+ examination marker.

I have had extensive training in supporting students with special educational needs, including autism and dyslexia. The latter training was provided by the British Dyslexia Association. I am able to tailor approaches and resources to suit the individual needs of every pupil.

I am DBS checked and have a clear record.

I would be happy to discuss your child’s needs in more detail. Please do contact me for an informal chat.
