Founders and Tutors



Key Stage One

At the Reception and Key Stage 1 level, the role of the tutor is to inspire and create a confident and secure child, motivated to learn and excited by their education ahead. We want them to be eager about school and learning. Having a private tutor at this age can support all areas of the curriculum, and improve core skills including reading, phonics, writing, communication skills and numeracy. Our sessions are fun, creative and engaging in order to encourage and enthuse these young learners. Whatever your needs, we can create the perfect learning programme for your child.

Key Stage Two

At Key Stage Two level, it is important to ensure children have the confidence to reach their full potential. This means making sure the foundations of literacy and numeracy are in place, and working from there. Whether they need extra support to grasp these foundations or need extending to further these foundations, our tutors will work hard to ensure these goals are met. Furthermore, where needed, we also offer help and support in all the other subjects within the KS2 curriculum.

11+ Preparation

For those children sitting the 11+ examinations, we focus on the core subjects of English and maths as well as verbal and non-verbal reasoning (if needed). We can also work on interview practice to boost their confidence at what can be a daunting prospect. We offer 1:1 tuition, small group sessions and one-off workshops.

Why Choose Us?

Dedicated to the Individual

We are proud of the fact that we offer private and personal tuition tailored to suit the student, and that we care for the progress of each individual. We are fully dedicated to ensuring that each student is given the appropriate and necessary support. We understand that children learn in different ways and we pride ourselves on creating stimulating and effective lessons for each and every learner. We adapt our lessons for those learners with special educational needs as well as those considered 'gifted and talented'.

Professional

As experienced teachers, we are 100% professional in our attitude and approach to learning. We are up-to-date with the latest national curriculum and methods of learning. Furthermore, we have first hand insight into the 11+ examination process and are fully qualified in preparing children for these examinations.

Approachable

As mothers, we understand the hopes and concerns of parents and also hold the desire for our children to receive the best possible education. We therefore believe it is crucial that we have strong communication with the student (and parent) so that everyone involved feels confident and comfortable. Before tutoring begins, we ask the student (and parent) to complete a short questionnaire so that we can ensure that we fulfil the objectives and create appropriate lessons. We also give feedback at the end of each lesson, to report on what we covered in the lesson.

Local

We were born in West London and both attended private secondary schools here. Parents can feel reassured that if their child is taking the 11+ examination, we have very good knowledge of the different schools available in the area and we can give advice on which schools are suitable for your child and what facilities they offer.
