In Dubai I teach English Language and Literature as well as EFL to children of all ages. I also have a number a number of private clients for 11+ (English, Maths and Reasoning), 13+, Interview skills and History
Provence, summer 2015: I spent this summer working privately with one family, helping prepare their two children Theodore and Gisele for 7+ and 11+ entrance to Sussex House and Wycombe Abbey respectively. The time was spilt between their estate in Devon and Provence, France. We covered a programme of English, Maths, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning and Interview Technique. The children made excellent progress over the sum-mer and are in an excellent position for their upcoming assessments.


GCSE English - Flora who was predicted a C at GCSE English ultimately secured an A* grade.
11+ Entrance Exams - Three students secure entrance to St Pauls, Cheltenham Ladies College and Lady Eleanor Holles School.
A Level Re-sits - James who was re-sitting his A Levels was accepted at the University of Edinburgh to read History and English.

11+ Exam Preparation with Harry (aged 10):

I worked with Harry over an 18 month period, preparing him for entrance to Latymer School. We had three lessons a week (English, Maths and Reasoning). I also scheduled in special Interview Skills lessons as the assessment day drew nearer.
Harry made strong progress over the course of tuition and showed great enthusiasm in his lessons with me. He successfully placed in the top 50 for Latymer, where he is greatly enjoying school life.

11+ Exam Preparation with Isabelle (10 years old):

Isabelles parents had always wanted her to go Lady Eleanor Holles School, but were aware that she did not naturally excel in English. I worked with Isabelle on her English, as well as Maths and Reasoning. Within a month of starting lessons Isabelle went up a whole level in her comprehension and two levels in her composition. Her ascent continued and she went on to display a real passion for English. She secured a place at Lady Eleanor Holles, much to her parents pleasure.
