Do you feel your child is not reaching their full potential? Are they struggling with certain subjects? This can lead to a lack of confidence or even switching off completely; I have a proven track record that a
It is impossible for any classroom teacher to give individual attention throughout a lesson but I am able to support them by working on the exact areas where they feel your child needs extra help. I have been tutoring for many years now, supporting children from surrounding Primary/Secondary schools: also working with Dyslexia and Autism.
Some have come for the 11+ tuition, which I believe to be essential, as they will not have come across this kind of exam paper before and competition for a grammar school is now very high.
Some have come because their GCSE/SATs are imminent and they are having a last minute 'panic', while others have started with me at Primary and continued through into Secondary.
Some have come because they struggle with learning their Times Tables: or is it just that they like the kittens,puppies, 'Curly Wurlys' and 'Smarties' that are invariably involved?

"I doubled my score in school tests within 2 months. It is fun and I have told my friends." Corey, Tavistock.
"Without tuition, I think I would have got zero in the 11+!" Christian, Tavistock.
