Information about Sandra
I have been a private tutor (maths, Spanish and English, in person and online, with individuals and groups) for 15 years.
"Excellent patience. Not rushed. Gives good information, explained very well."
"Sandra is very patient, reliable, competent, helpful and has a very pleasant teaching manner. She is friendly and encouraging and creates an atmosphere conducive to learning."
"Sandra is sympathetic, encouraging and apparently endlessly patient."
"I`ve learned more [maths] in the last 8 lessons than I have in a whole school year! Sandra is one of the nicest, most patient, clever teachers I`ve ever come across." [Age 13 yrs]
"I have always had a fear of foreign languages, but Sandra`s teaching methods allayed my fears and I have really enjoyed learning Spanish."
"After our first lesson I felt I`d learnt more than I did in the eighteen months I`d been learning with our last teacher who was native Spanish."
Availability: I am available daytime, evenings and, if needed, weekends, subject to other students` lessons already booked in.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have been a private tutor (maths, Spanish and English, in person and online, with individuals and groups) for 15 years. Having gained a degree in Pure Mathematics and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, I became a primary school teacher. My understanding of how to bring out the best in children expanded through my experience of home-educating my own sons from infancy to college level. Following home-education, I studied Neuro-Linguistic Programming to Master Practitioner level, which has enriched my understanding of how we can overcome blocks and maximise our potential, and have worked with many clients. I have taught maths to young people from 6 to 17yrs and to adults, including in adult numeracy classes and I have worked with primary school students needing to improve their English skills and prepare for the 11+ tests and have taught adult literacy clases. I have taught Spanish to hundreds of adults, individually and in friendship groups and adult-ed classes, and to many under eighteens, including some who reached A* at GCSE in one year, with no lessons at school.

Very good with James. Can see how much he`s progressed already
Sandra has quickly developed a trusting relationship with my grandaughter who feels more confident in her ability to learn in a one to one situation and with a female tutor. Sandra has made me aware of ways in which the family can support my granddaughter in her learning.
Excellent teacher, patient and lover her teaching method. Always look forward to my next lesson, keeps me interested and focused. Would highly recommend!
Tutors Response :
Thank you Andrea. I`m so glad you are enjoying the lessons. I am too. I love teaching Spanish. It is great that you are so motivated and focused. I can see your potential to be fluent, with a sound understanding of the language. Well done.
