I am a friendly and positive person who strives to unlock the potential in all children. I am a very experienced KS2 teacher and have been tutoring for many years in West Kent.
I am a dedicated teacher who believes in spending time with pupils to help them understand and make progress in the subjects they are learning.
I am able to connect with pupils through my friendly and personable nature. I really enjoy teaching children and will provide the best possible education for them.
Availability: Every evening after school starting at 3.30 until early evening and Saturday mornings.
I am also available during the day for home schooling and have experience of home schooling. If you are local to me I will travel to your home, otherwise I offer sessions at my home.
Willing to travel: 4 miles
Experience: I am a qualified Primary school teacher and have worked in both key stages and all Key Stage 2 year group classes. I have many years experience of teaching children in upper key stage 2 particularly in how to prepare for and pass the 11+ and also to improve their scores. I am able to assess your child for their suitability for the 11+, I assess their maths, English, verbal and non verbal reasoning converting their raw score into a standardised one like the 11+
I currently have a 90% success rate in the new 11+ tests, but more importantly my predictions of your child`s outcome is sound. I run mock 11+ exams, where your child can practice in small groups using the new style exam papers.
If the 11 plus route is not for your child, I am also able to provide tuition and preparation for the common entrance exams. I also have experience of the 13+. I have helped children with entrance to Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Cranbrook, Benenden, Beechwood, Radnor, Caterham, Lancing, Halliberry, Bethany, Mayfield & Hurstpierpoint Schools.
I ensure that all children achieve their full potential by improving their confidence in maths or English.
I also have plenty of experience of SATS testing and raising children`s National Curriculum levels. On a national level I am also a external marker of Year 6 SATS tests, marking levels 3-5 and level 6 papers.
I have experience of home schooling and can provide an individual timetable covering all curriculum areas.

review(s) for Theresa.
Theresa has been amazing with my daughter! She has really challenged her but led this very much at her own pace and really thought about her needs tailoring her approach to one which really works for her! She looks forward to her coming and I can`t recommend Theresa highly enough! Many thanks from a 11 plus Year 5 Mum👍;;☺;;️;;😊;;
Theresa is currently tutoring our son for the 11+ and has been since October. From that point upto now Theresa has been fantastic, not only with the teaching side, but by keeping my son relaxed and Talking him through the whole process. I would highly recommend Theresa.
Theresa is a fantastic tutor. She knows what the children need to focus on for their exams and she has a lovely manner. I am delighted with her.
Theresa has been fantastic. She has an indepth knowledge of what is required for the 11+ and was able to tailor the work to our daughter`s needs. Theresa was extremely encouraging, flexible and kind. We would definitely recommend her.
Theresa has been everything we wanted in a tutor. Honest and personable. Highly recommend. The process was easy and the website user friendly.
Theresa tutored my daughter in the build up to Kent test in 2016. She quickly spotted the areas she needed help with and was endlessly patient, explaining things in a way my daughter understood and remembered. My daughter genuinely enjoyed the sessions with Theresa and it was great to see her school work improve as her knowledge and confidence grew. I particularly valued Theresa`s exam tips and the mock papers they did nearer the time. As a result, my daughter had no nerves on the day and got a great result. I would highly recommend Theresa.
Theresa provided around two years of invaluable support by guiding our daughter through the 11+ & entrance exams. The increased confidence and ability our daughter enjoys in Maths and English is astonishing. Thank you so much!
