Information about Zoe

When I became a private 1:1 tutor, I quickly realised how personally rewarding my chosen vocation was going to be. My approach is to work on children`s current primary school targets. I then plan activities which complement what the child is studying in school. I feel that this maximises the benefits of tutoring as children find that following my tutoring sessions they return to school and excel in their lessons. The confidence my students gain from doing well at school leads to even higher attainment as children who feel successful will work harder at school and during tutoring sessions. I think it is important for my students to feel that I value their efforts and that they feel listened to. My starting point with a new student is to assess a child`s strengths and weaknesses so that I can use this to tailor a specific lesson plan for that child. I am happy to go the extra mile for my students and I regularly provide feedback to parents about their child`s progress. I believe that regular communication between parent and tutor enhances the value of tutoring and I am happy to listen to parental requests and to tailor my tutoring accordingly.
I am a fully qualified teacher with a friendly approach to tutoring I can offer tuition to prepare students for the English and/or Maths CSSE 11+ entrance exams for grammar schools in Essex .I have good contacts with staff at a local super selective school and this has enabled me to develop a thorough understanding of what the exam involves. I also prepare students for KS2 SATS exams in English and Maths.I have successfully tutored students with applications for a local super selective grammar school. I believe that 1:1 tutoring is the most effective means of preparing for the 11+ and KS2 SATS exams.
I have an up to date DBS certificate.

Availability: I currently teach part time and I am therefore available at weekends or from 3.30pm onwards on weekdays

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have qualified teacher status (QTS) and have 22 years teaching experience in a local secondary school. I have 18 years experience as a senior examiner on GCSE and A-level examinations.

DBS Check: Yes

Since my son`s introduction to Zoe, his maths and English has improved remarkably which has also increased his confidence at school. For once, he actually look`s forward to doing his work and he doesn`t have that feeling of trepidation when he has to do his maths. It feels like an air of calmness has descended on his school work. I can`t thank Zoe, enough.

My daughter has just started tutoring with Zoe and is really enjoying the experience. After the first week she was excited to explain everything she had learned. She already has greater confidence and looks forward to her sessions. I hope this continues!

Zoe`s help has been invaluable assisting my son with his Maths and English. His confidence and ability in the subjects has improved dramatically. Maths was his least favourite subject, now it is one he really enjoys and this is all down to Zoe. I would definitely recommend Zoe and will continue to use her on an ongoing basis to maintain his development.
