I am a very experienced tutor based in Central London. My enthusiasm and vibrant lessons make me an ideal choice for younger children wanting to excel in school. I specialise in the 4+ and 11+ entrance exam and am passionate about improving children`s English skills. I am also a specialist in helping young children learn English as a language- I use song, rhymes and activities to help build vocabulary, clarity and confidence. I also have a lower rate of £40 for under 5s.
I like to engage children through fun and vibrant lessons. I tailor my lessons according to my pupils and customise games to make lessons more exciting. I like children to enjoy my lessons (almost as if the learning is disguised!) and use visual guides and physical props to help children access the learning. At first I use practise papers as diagnostics and then delve into particular topics that are in need of improvement. My lessons improve pupils` self confidence and self esteem.
Availability: After a fully booked 18 months, I will have slots opening up in September! I am available for summer lessons from July and I now have day time availability perfect for 4+ prep. I am very happy to be flexible. Please just get in contact :) I

Experience: I have over 10 years experience teaching within schools. I began as a private violin tutor at the age of 16, and worked within schools running workshops in Drama whilst at university. After graduating, I worked full time in schools across London gaining knowledge in many different systems and approaches and have taught in subjects across the field including English, Maths, Drama and Music. My experience in Drama makes me a very effective communicator, especially with younger children wanting an exciting lesson to keep them focussed and active. Contact this Tutor
Over the past year alone, my pupils have made huge improvements. I have an entrance exam pupil who has gone up two literacy levels in just one term. After a year of tutoring, she has now been offered a place at the incredibly prestigious school- Alleyns. Both the family and I are very proud! I have also had a pupil who spoke little to no English this time last year, who has now just got into the prestigious Garden House School in Sloane Square.
I have a valid DBS and many references.
Anastasia- Pupil Parent:
I`ve changed many tutors for my daughter`s 11+ preparation, until I found Holly. She understand the student`s specific needs and prepares the tutorial accordingly, she is very organised and has a plethora of resources. Holly makes the student feel confident by emphasising the positives, she is very enthusiastic and delivers the tutorial in a fun, structured and productive way. She is an amazing tutor and we highly recommend her.
Holly is a very enthusiastic and creative educator who is adaptable and multi talented. She forms bonds with children quickly and they enjoy her company greatly. She has a brilliant attitude to her work, prepares her lessons well and delivers vibrant and engaging lessons consistently. Finally I am proud to say that Holly was part of our company!
Ive been lucky to work alongside Holly for many years now. She is inspirational and has that rare ability to find the special something in her learners that boosts their confidence and propels them into a world where anything is possible.
Holly is an excellent and trustworthy tutor. She thoroughly plans her lessons well in advance and adapts each session to fit the tuttee she is teaching. She has had roaring successes with every pupil, each exceeding expectations and smashing targets. To add to this, Holly makes sure that all of her lessons are fun, interesting and interactive to make sure her students get the most out of the time they spend with her. I know Holly to always be punctual, enthusiastic and hard working, and she will always do her best for every pupil she teaches. I would thoroughly recommend Holly as a tutor, and believe that every pupil will well and truly appreciate the time they spend learning with her.
