I am able to deliver engaging and motivating lessons to students across Key Stage 3 & 4 successfully, apply to use the whole school behaviour policy in setting high standards and expectations for students. In addition, I am able to produce high quality resources.

I am an experienced tutor in London teaching key stage 2,3 and 4 mathematics and English. I have a sound subject knowledge of mathematics and English curriculum for state and private schools. I have attained very good results with many students.
Brief statement of objective:
I am a professionally qualified tutor with considerable teaching experience. I am flexible, understanding, compassionate and most of all experienced in the teaching of:
11+ and 12+
Non Verbal Reasoning,
English and Mathematics
Key stage 1 -English and Mathematics (British National Curriculum)
Key stage 2 -English and Mathematics (British National Curriculum, US Common Core Curriculum)

Key stage 4 GCSE/IGCSE/IB-English and Mathematics
I am a professionally qualified licensed British teacher with considerable teaching experience to assist students wanting to raise attainment in verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning, English and mathematics from age 7 to 16. I have a sound subject knowledge of these subjects and am very familiar with the current British resources available to raise attainment. The lesson will begin with a starter, the learning objective, guided support, independent task, mini formative assessment and review for a 60 minute tuition slot. Past papers and guided support to attempt questions will be given for the student to become familiar. I am also flexible to direct project based learning so that the learner can explore higher order thinking and have a deeper understanding for a realistic conceptual outlook. The one to one support will enhance the learning for the student and most of all I have a very warm and kind personality. I aim to build a good rapport with the student to raise attainment. I also love to travel the world and have a very flexible attitude about cultures and beliefs. I am an ambassador for a growth mindset approach and transforming for positive results with clear targets and effective strategies for a betterment.

Hi Phoebe & Chloe,
We are pleased to inform you that Diego has received acceptances for the 2 schools he applied for 11+: Alleyn's School and Dulwich College.
We are still waiting until mid-March for the other 2 that were for 13+ (King's College and City of London).
Fantastic result since they are frightening competitive. We are really pleased for Diego!
Please Phoebe forward this email to Nirvasha who did a great effort here in Abu Dhabi to prepare Diego for the exams, so the achievement is as well theirs.
Finally, I would appreciate any additional information Holland Park might be in a position to share with us that would help us in the (nice) dilemma of choosing which School.
Thank you very much indeed.
Isabel Gonzalez & Angel Gavieiro (and Diego!)

I passed Upper Latymer and Saint Benedicts. The lessons have really supported me in mathematics. I used to struggle a lot in creative writing, but now I can write with the help from Mrs Jithoo.
