I am qualified primary school teacher and have taught across the primary school age range, with particular experience of Years 5 and 6. I am currently undertaking Year 5 and 6 maths and literacy booster sessions in a number of schools. I am an experienced tutor.

I strongly believe in encouragement and confidence building whilst working at a child`s own pace to enable them to progress in their learning.
I able to start with on - line tutoring, but will switch back to face to face ASAP.

Feedback For Karen (6)
Karen has worked weekly with our 8-year old daughter for over 5 months on maths. She started when our daughter was in Y3 and had very little confidence in her maths abilities and skills. Now in Y4, and thanks to Karen`s enthusiastic work, our daughter has gained back her confidence and even talks excitedly about maths, which she didn`t do last year. We believe the stress of the various tests and assessments in Y2 caused her to lose her self-confidence and love for maths, which she had always liked since starting school. Karen is good at keeping our daughter focused and explains, in simple terms, any concepts or methods which our daughter finds difficult. Karen is always on time and makes good use of the hour-long lesson each week.
Karen has been a great help in providing my son with extra knowledge and strategies to tackle his SATs. He feels much more confident now. Thanks Karen!
Tutors Response :
Son of 11yrs says 5 stars! We agree! Karen is warm, kind and considers child`s learning needs. He has grown in confidence and ability with his Maths & English. he is feeling better prepared for his SATS later this month. Thank You Karen :)
Karen tutored my children weekly during the summer holidays and did a great job! She`s good at keeping the children focused and at explaining any concepts/methods they find difficult. She was punctual and made the most of the hour long lesson. And the icing on the cake ..... both children did well in their maths exam at the start of the new school year. Thank you Karen.
Karen tutored my son then 5 years old, for a period of about 5 months last year. During which time we saw a noticeable improvement in both his reading a numerical skills. I wouldn`t hesitate to use Karen again for my son and would highly recommend her.
Karen has been tutoring my daughter for about 6 weeks now and she is fantastic. My daughter has made very significant and very noticeable progress which has carried through to school as well. Karen`s sessions are fun and interactive which means keeping my daughter`s attention span for 1 hr is not a problem. I would recommend Karen without hesitation.
