Information about Emma

I’m a fully qualified primary school teacher, and maths graduate, with over 10 years’ teaching experience in the classroom.

I’ve taught across Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) in state and ISI `excellent` independent schools and I’ve also worked as a National Curriculum SATs Marker.

After stepping away from a successful career in teaching, I now work as a self-employed tutor from my home in West Moors, Dorset.

I specialise in 11+ tuition and work with pupils in Year 4, 5 and 6 who are preparing for the grammar school entrance exams. My goal is to help as many children as possible ace their tests by developing their subject knowledge and exam technique, and giving them the confidence to succeed!

I have extensive knowledge of the 11+ system and offer full support and guidance to my pupils along every step of the way.

I bring heaps of energy, enthusiasm and fun to my lessons, whilst ensuring that pupils are challenged to reach their full potential. Regular lessons will also have a significant impact on pupils` progress in school.

All lessons are prepared in advance and I use a combination of my own resources, published material and carefully selected online games and activities.

For pupils who live outside of the grammar school catchment area, who need specialist support in one subject or who speak English as an additional language, I can provide a highly tailored programme to meet specific requirements.

I also offer Mock Test mornings and 11+ workshops during school holidays.

Availability: I am available on weekdays before/after school, Saturdays and school holidays.

Willing to travel: Home Only

DBS Check: Yes

Emma is a very good tutor and we are very happy with the way she is teaching our child: she manages to find the right rhythm of teaching so that the child is challenged but not stressed and is learning in a fun and comfortable environment. We noticed many progress already. In addition Emma is very easy to speak to and punctual and the communication is seamless, so it is very nice dealing with her!

Emma has been fantastic with our daughter, she is patient, encouraging and always opens the door with a friendly smile. Our daughter really looks forward to her time with Emma each week. She loves to be challenged and Emma stretches her just the right amount. We are so pleased we found Emma to help with our daughters learning. Thank you

Emma is brilliant. She has helped my daughter with her Year 4 maths and English supporting and consolidating what they are doing in class. My daughter`s teacher fed back that she was reaching a high level in her recent parents` evening. So pleased but most importantly after just three weeks of working with Emma, my daughter actually looks forward to her one on one time. She can tell it is helping her and she enjoys it.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the kind comments, Gemma :) I really enjoy teaching your daughter each week - she is a star!

Emma is a fantastic and excellent tutor for my 10 year old boy Max! We are very happy we have found her. Her lessons are well paced, professional, her voice is clear and her tone used really encourages my son to work as hard as he can. Her lessons are super well organised, she gives many tips, links and is patient and kind. The content is at the correct level too. I look forward to working with her for our younger son next year! Thanks you again

Tutors Response :

What a lovely review! :-) Thank you so much, Andrea - it is my absolute pleasure to support Max with his 11+ preparation and I`m looking forward to working with his brother next year!

Emma is an excellent tutor and her lessons are engaging and well structured. She clearly has considerable experience of tutoring and was able to recommend some good books and material that I don`t think we would have found otherwise. Her communications are prompt and clear. We did all the sessions online which worked fine.

Tutors Response :

Thank you, Ian - I really appreciate your comments. I thoroughly enjoyed working with your daughter - she was so attentive and hardworking!

Emma provided online lessons and mock 11+ exams for my son. The lessons were engaging and interactive which my son really enjoyed, so much so he looked forward to them! Emma identifies where learning gaps exist and looks to bridge these. I found the written reports after the mock exams really useful to see what stage my son is at. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Emma - only wish we found her sooner!! Emma is very responsive, communicating at every step of the way. A good experience all round.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much, Catherine! Your son was a delight to teach and it`s lovely to hear that he looked forward to the lessons :-)
