- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I teach online, over Skype.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I work towards raising the student's grades by two levels, in my experience, this is the usual outcome. Private tuition, due to the nature of the work and the condensed teaching, produces notable improvements. I specialise in getting students the grades they need for University and assisting those who would otherwise not achieve their full potential.
My approach has been particularly effective for exam coaching in building student's confidence.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I am a fully qualified teacher with over twenty years experience.
I have taught in both the state and independent sector. I currently work in a College, teaching Psychology. I run my own private tuition company and I am an Integrated Humanistic Psychotherapist. (MA, The University of Roehampton)
I am an AQA examiner for A level Psychology.
I am committed to high standards academically and behaviorally. I trust that my encouraging and student-centered approach is effective in this area.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a current DBS

From Angela (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) Wendy is a very professional tutor with a calm and straight-forward approach. My daughter and I would recommend her.
From Keely (5/5): (Primary Entrance Exams) My 11 year old son has blossomed under Wendy's tutoring. Wendy has a very calm gentle manner, she is encouraging, patient and shows an interest while remaining professional. In the 3 months Wendy has tutored my son for his 11+ exams his confidence has grown and he approaches his work in a much more mature manner. Wendy has managed to unlock the potential we knew was there and we would highly recommend her.
From Nia (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) Wendy is currently helping my daughter with her A2 Psychology studies and I'm so glad we found her. She is approachable and clearly very knowledgeable. She is reliable and teaches over Skype which is more cost-effective. I am sure her tuition will make a difference to my daughter's grade come June!
From Isabel (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) We moved to the UK halfway through my daughter's A levels causing so much disruption to her studies and life. I was at my wit's end trying to find some continuity in her education and then we found Wendy! She has been a god send ; instilling confidence in Isabel who has now taken such a liking to Psycholoy that she has applied to University to start a Bsc in the subject. In the short time that we have known Wendy, she has proved to be the best psychology teacher my daughter has ever had. Her teaching method makes learning fun and Isabel looks forward to her sessions with Wendy each week. We do upto 4 classes (a mix of Skype and face to face) In short, Wendy is the kind of teacher every student should have. Straightforward, firm yet kind and all this while making a lesson interesting. Isabel is now predicted an A in psychology and while she is a hard working girl, most of the credit goes to Wendy who has set her on the right path to success.

From Tamara (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) Wendy really helped my son with his A Level Psychology. He was very low on confidence having done badly in his mocks and having lost his teacher at an awkward time in the year. Wendy arrived and helped him to get organised, get a grip on the subject and most importantly made him realise he could do well. She is a natural teacher, especially for teens, she explained things well and really got him thinking. Most importantly she restored his confidence in his
From Megan (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) I had Wendy as my A level psychology tutor from February right up to my June exams. Wendy was extremely patient and explained things fully whilst providing really helpful exam questions and resources. Because I had Wendy as my tutor I was able to be more confident in how I approach and answer essay style questions which in turn raised my A level grade from an E to an overall grade of a B. thank you Wendy!
From Penelope (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) My daughter achieved an A* in Pyschology this year having had a very poor teaching experience and lack of preparation at school. She felt unconfident with the course in year 13 even though she had done very well in year 12. Wendy was able to support her and help her regain her confidence. She provided excellent study materials and really listened to what my daughter needed. Wendy has a lovely manner and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her as a tutor.
From Gillian (5/5): (GCSE English) Wendy has helped my high functioning autistic daughter achieve an A grade in her speaking and listening exam this year. She has done a tremendous job at boosting my year 11 daughter's confidence and turn a D grade English mock result into an A grade mock result. Fingers crossed when the final exams come in Nov and Summer 2016 she will get an A/B. Wendy is professional, kind, patient and nurturing. She has boosted my daughter's confidence three fold and my daugh
From Hilary (5/5): (GCSE English) I contacted Wendy just a couple of weeks before my son was due to sit his GCSE English exams at a point of crises. Wendy arrived and restored order and calm into his revision and in the few sessions they had together covered what he needed to get a grade that I thought was beyond him. I have no doubt that one of the most important things Wendy did was encourage his self confidence and give him hope that it was possible to pass if he followed her advice. I would
From Ling (5/5): (GCSE English) Sorry for giving the feedback so late, Wendy is a great English tutor who knows lots of exam skills and helped my son achieved A and B in his GCSE English exams after he had only C and D in his mock exams. Really recommended.
From Warren (5/5): (GCSE English) Wendy worked closely with our son in the lead up to his GCSE. She was able to improve his grade to a pass when his prediction was to fail which enabled him to go on to commence his A levels with more confidence. Wendy is now working with our son on his A level psychology. Wendy's great strengths are her knowledge of the cirriculum and the expectation of each exam boards.
From Nick (5/5) Elsa only studied with Wendy for a short while but Wendy had an excellent pragmatic approach to meet Elsa's needs. Wendy also went out of her way to give some very good advice about the best ways for ...
From Almass (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) Wendy has been tutoring my daughter in A level Psychology for about 5 months now. My daughter has gained in confidence and is far more able to participate in class discussions. Wendy always explains things well and every lesson is very productive. My daughter achieved a good grade in her first exam so I am very please at how the tutoring is going. I would highly recommend Wendy.
From Catherine (5/5): (A-Level Psychology) Wendy has been helping my son with his A level Psychology. We have been really pleased. She has spent time going over exam questions with him as well as going over the syllabus to help give him confidence for the upcoming exams.
