With 30+ years of experience in education, both as a teacher and parent, I am very well placed to advise on all aspects of secondary education. Students respond well to my very energetic teaching style, whilst parents value my input from, as it were, both sides of the desk.

In Languages, sadly, students are frequently demoralised and at a loss as to how to improve their grades, especially as these seem, all too often, to fall below those in other curriculum areas.  They thus appreciate my rigorous, exam-focused approach. Weekly, fortnightly or ad hoc tuition available.

As to school admissions and 11+, I am a valued and trusted contributor across the various 11+ forums on Facebook and Telegram and I have a wealth of experience and teaching resources to share with parents wanting advice on schools or preparing their children for assessments and interviews.
