As a primary school teacher with 10 years experience in an outstanding school, I have the skills to get the best out of any child.
I passionately believe that given the correct one-to-one tuition, children can develop strategies to get the most out of their learning.
As an approachable, compassionate and friendly teacher, I love building positive relationships to help develop young minds whilst having fun along the way.
I would be delighted to discuss your specific situation to see what I can do to help.

Feedback For Vicki (10)
Vicki put a lot of effort in to try and understand the educational needs of my daughter, Vicki tried to adapt her teaching ways to accommodate my daughter. Vicki is very nice and friendly and my daughter liked doing the lessons and her confidence increased.
I needed help last year due to the effects of school closures on my two little ones - ages 6 and 9 - as a full time working parent working for myself I felt I could not help as much as I needed to and did not want to wait till the following year for assessments on my youngest as suggested by her school teacher. I knew my youngest was behind esp in Phonics and reading. I came across this site and found Vicki. From the first contact she was helpful, put my mind at rest and gave me realistic expectations and honest feedback. I have continued using Vicki for my two daughters longer than I thought initially - as I have seen such dramatic improvements and this has been noticed at school also. I know Vicki is there when we need her for advice and has the perfect approach for my children and myself. I would highly rec Vicki. She has helped my youngest with phonics and reading and my eldest with Maths and now also English work. Thank you Vicki for being amazing Claire
Brilliant tutor, I can already see improvements in my child learning.
Vicki has been helping my very fidgety 7 year old with catch up maths. She is up to date on the curriculum and and different ways to teach maths to ensure the child understands. Of particular use has been her methods to help my child self-manage her anxiety (the learning pit), working with patience and humour while keeping her focused. My daughter is definitely more confident in her maths now. Vicki is punctual, gives me prompt feedback after each lesson and sends me resources to use with my child to keep up home practice. She goes above and beyond and is a genuinely kind and compassionate tutor who I would highly recommend.
Vicki is a fantastic tutor. She is very patient and helpful with my son`s English. She responds very quickly with any questions. We are really appreciated with Vicki`s help.
Really happy with Vickis ability to make my child not only learn what is required but UNDERSTAND what he is learning in a way that is fun and engaging. Looking forward to seeing him develop further :)
Vicki is a great teacher and I highly recommend her. Vicki had 1-2-1 tuition lessons in Maths with my Year 2 daughter for 5 weeks now via Zoom. Before starting lessons with Vicki, my daughter had no confidence in Maths, was visibly behind her required level, and was saying that she hates Maths. Vicki took the non-easy path of setting the foundations right for our daughters understanding, rather than rush through the subjects. As a result we already can see great progress, a more confident girls in her Math skills, more able in Maths and more interested in Maths altogether. I had days when my daughters feedback after the lesson was that it was amazing and when asking what was amazing the answer was everything! (This is coming from a girl whose usual answer to how was school/the session/the lesson/the club today is good, nothing more.)
Vicki has been absolutely excellent from day 1 with our 10 year old son. Vicki not only tailors the lessons perfectly to his needs and provides great feedback as to how he is doing but he is also clearly enjoying the lessons. We couldnt recommend Vicki more highly.
Vicki is great with my 5 year old. Sessions are fun and tailored to his needs.
Vicki is always on time and has been great with my child who struggles to concentrate
