Information about Helen
I am an encouraging and supportive Qualified Teacher who enjoys working with children from KS1 up to KS4 to address difficulties with aspects of education as well as providing extension for some. As a Private Tutor I enjoy being able to spend time working with individual pupils in achieving their personal learning goals.
I employ my academic experience as a Qualified Teacher and combine it with my personal life experiences to enable me to meet a wide variety of tutoring requests successfully.
Success breeds success. Clear learning goals and regular assessment enables all pupils to see their progress.
I provide individually tailored sessions to assist pupils in achieving school based targets and to maintain progress in line with or above national expectations from primary up to GCSE level.
I develop good relationships with those I tutor and pupils look forward to my sessions. I am able to engage the most reluctant of learners by ensuring lessons are lively and engaging through the use of practical activities and a range of visual aids to support learning.
I have a wide range of experience in teaching and tutoring pupils with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Autism and,more recently,Dyscalculia. As a parent of boys with many of these special educational needs, I understand the particular challenges and frustrations of coping with education and the impact on daily life for both parent and pupil.
Experience as a teacher and a parent has provided me with а bank of skills and strategies to help individual pupils overcome difficulties. I am able to spend time with parents supporting them in developing strategies to overcome the everyday challenges their child faces,e.g personal organisation, new routines, homework, tackling behaviour issues through positive praise.
The greatest impact I make on individual pupils is to encourage a positive attitude and thereby develop a believe in themselves as a learner.
Through positive experiences in each session all pupils, irrespective of age, are willing to face greater challenges in their learning. This builds confidence.
Confidence and positive learning experiences are vital in climbing up the ladder of success in learning.

Feedback For Helen (7)
My nephew is enjoying his lessons with Helen and she is helping him to structure his studies.
Tutors Response :
Thank you for this positive feedback. I enjoy working with your nephew. He is responding well to the structure of my sessions and beginning to better understand how to respond to the GCSEEnglish Language question regarding The writers use of Language.
A great teacher, very supportive and adjusts to any learning needs.
Tutors Response :
Thank you for this positive feedback on my services. Its a pleasure to work with you and find out how best to meet your individual needs to help you achieve your goals.
It`s been few weeks since Helen started to tutor my son who is 9. The new techniques Helen uses and the way she teaches does make difference in my son`s creative writing. I would recommend Helen!
Helen is an highly skilled tutor that has many excellent learning techniques. Helen is very easy to work with and has an open friendly approach to teaching. Highly recommendable tutor.
Helen is a very good teacher and has undoubtedly been the main reason my son will pass his exam. My son is highly dyslexic and Helen has been very good at helping him with strategies to deal with his condition.
Helen is a really good tutor and i strongly recommend her. she made me improve my English writing skills in 4 lessons
Tutors Response :
Thank you very much for your feedback. It was a pleasure to work with you to help you achieve your goal.
Helen is a dedicated tutor who puts a lot of effort into tutoring. Highly recommended.
My daughter responded well to her. But unfortunately her time keeping is not great.
Tutors Response :
I am sincerely apologetic that I was unable to keep to the scheduled time on our first two lessons and let you down. Unfortunately I had recently taken on two extra pupils and had not realised how much extra time to allow for one of the journeys on that day due to heavy traffic across town as well as earlier homeschooled client was late. Unfortunately a knock on effect.
I have now rescheduled my timetable to allow for longer time when crossing town during peak hours and put in a longer buffer of time between sessions in case previous session over runs.
I do hope your daughter does well and gains the confidence in maths that will help her do well in her exams.
