I have experience working in a primary school so I am very familiar with the primary school and 11+ syllabus so make sure that all lessons help students practically at in exam situations. As well as teaching academic subjects I have experience teaching drama and believe that making lessons fun and engaging helps build confidence which is also essential for children and young people.
I have a degree from the University of York in English and Politics and have been working in theatre for five years. Alongside this I have been tutoring, particularly offering support for the 11+ exams in English, Maths and interview preparation. I've tutored children for the most academic schools in London such as St. Pauls and the GDST schools as well as for LAMDA exams and just to help with confidence for school plays and events.
I will travel anywhere in London. If a lesson is cancelled with less than 48 hours notice there will be a charge of 50% of the lesson fee.

Tutoring Experience with Grosvenor Tutors
Over the last four years I have worked as a tutor for Grosvenor Tutors, predominantly working with primary school aged children, teaching a variety subjects across the curriculum.
I have worked with girls and boys preparing for the 11+ in Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning as well as interview preparation. I am experienced with a range of academic abilities, whether that is challenging very academically gifted children in ways that they can’t be challenged in the classroom or working with less academic children to improve their confidence and instill good habits and skills that will help support their school work. I have prepared children for schools throughout London such as St Pauls, Westminster, Latymer, Kings College, North London consortium schools, GDST schools.
7+ and 8+ preparation
I have worked with girls and boys to help them get ready for the 7+ and 8+ which pose unique challenges as the children are so young and this is often their first experience of formal testing. I believe that maintaining confidence and enjoyment is key at this age as the whole experience can be overwhelming. Schools I have prepared children for include; Latymer Prep, St Paul’s Junior, Kings College Wimbledon, Wetherby Prep, Westminster Under.
Non exam preparation
I am experienced in working with children that aren’t preparing for a specific exam but whose parents believe they could benefit from extra one-on-one support outside the classroom. I have worked with children for whom English is not their first language to help them improve their vocabulary and understanding of the English language. I have worked with children who struggle in a school environment, sometimes due to ADHD or other behavioral conditions and work with them to support what they have learned in school but in a way that is more accessible. As well as children who struggle in school I have also worked with children who are flourishing but could do with being challenged in a new way.
I am an experienced theatre director and drama facilitator and have worked with children and young people in groups and individually. I prepare children for LAMDA exams and offer coaching for auditions for children and adults.
The Merlin School, Teaching Assistant September 2014 – October 2015
I worked at the Merlin School, pre-prep school for girls and boys ages 4-8, for three months in 2014 and after that I would work part time, providing cover and assisting when they needed an extra pair of hands. I have worked across all age groups in the school and ran an extra-curricular drama club.
Freelance Drama workshops
I run bespoke theatre workshops for children of all ages in schools and drama clubs. In schools I predominantly run Shakespeare workshops that focus on getting every child to speak and hear Shakespeare’s words.
