External tutoring is important, but children won't learn unless they're having fun.
Welcome to My Homepage
I am a fully qualified, experienced, fun, successful and professional DBS-checked teacher/tutor based in Sevenoaks. I specialise in Maths, the Kent 11+ Test and selective school entrance exams.
As a trusted educator who is passionate about what I do, I have extensive experience and a proven track record of success in helping children to build their confidence, overcome any doubts/misunderstandings and to pass exams. I also coach parents in how to aid and assist their children.
Specific skills are taught during individual lessons on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis, aiming to boost students’ knowledge and to teach them key concepts, in addition to providing them with a strong grounding in examination techniques and test preparation.
Lessons are delivered online via FaceTime (in the UK or abroad), face to face and are tailored to specifically suit each individual child’s needs. These are given both during term time and throughout the school holidays.
Additionally I provide and run intensive daily and weekly Easter and Summer revision courses for small groups in Maths, English and Reasoning, incorporating the new Kent Test structure. These courses also cover material in line with recent selective school exams for this age group plus provide invaluable preparation for Key Stage 2 SATS. These are held in Sevenoaks and can be booked directly from this website.
I also run a four day course at the end of December to prepare children about to take an independent school exam held in January.
More details about these courses and mock exams can be found under the relevant menu sections above.
Written feedback and references from current and former pupils and parents can be viewed in Testimonials.

I aim to boost children’s confidence in Maths by teaching specific skills on a 1:1 basis in a fun manner that children can relate to. Skills are reinforced in a variety of ways, both computer and paper-based, and knowledge is tested and revised continuously. I aim to connect the topics in Maths, consolidating their knowledge and understanding and thus improving confidence in a subject many children do not necessarily enjoy at the outset.
