Information about David
I am a fully qualified teacher that has taught within the state and independent sectors. I am enthusiastic, organised, thorough and seek to inspire those that I teach to reach their goals and more.
My lessons are interesting, challenging and fun in order to achieve focus and progress.
I cover core CEM and GL 11+ subject criteria focusing on Verbal Reasoning, Non Verbal Reasoning, Mathematics and English. My lessons do not only cover the above content but allow me to teach key exam techniques from question evaluation to time keeping.
The initial lesson will be assessment based in order for me to create a programme of study that will focus on strengths and areas of development. Each subsequent lesson will then be aimed at improving the pupils understanding and knowledge of the 11+ subjects and skills.
Regular child performance updates will be given to parents.
Availability: I am available weekdays after 17:00 and Saturdays from 8:00
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I am currently teaching my own Year 5 class in an Outstanding school in North London. I have several years teaching experience in both state and independent settings. I have gained invaluable experience while completing my QTS through the Institute of Education and have vast knowledge of education as well as the new curriculum in the Primary setting.
I have been tutoring for the past 7 years, covering 11+ entrance examinations and helping those students who require further reinforcement of their subject knowledge from year 3 to year 8.
Feedback For David (2)
David is extremely professional but also approachable and friendly. He struck up a rapport with our daughter straight away, and has been full of encouragement: she always looks forward to his lessons.
I was aiming my little girl (10yo) at the Dame Alice Owen exams and David looked the perfect tutor for this. He is very efficient and professional with lots of pre-prepared work for the lessons. He has a history with DAO so also has somewhat of an inside track. Preparation went very well indeed and my daughter came out of the VR/English exam yesterday pleased with her efforts. Fingers crossed and thanks to David. 5 stars!!
