Information about Wendy


During my career, I have taught Science and Maths in a wide range of different secondary schools. I am now a full-time carer and concentrate on coaching pupils online from my home.
There are several ways I help my pupils. Firstly, I can re teach topics they have found difficult in the past. There are many ways of approaching subjects and different methods suit different pupils. In a classroom situation, there might not be the opportunity to adapt learning for individual children.
Many children worry so much about making mistakes that it restricts their progress. I structure their work so that they are supported as much as they need, they, make fewer errors and their confidence improves.
Sometimes, pupils appear to be doing okay in class, but then struggle when it comes to tests and examinations. This can be improved by studying lots of test type questions, using short revision questions each week and by encouraging the students to check their answers at every stage.
Pupils may be set online work by their school. We can look at this together and sort out any difficulties. After many years teaching, I know the types of errors pupils are likely to make and can teach to avoid these mistakes.
I know the different specifications in Science and Maths thoroughly and can often predict the next area of learning. This enables me to ‘pre teach’ areas of a topic, so the pupils are prepared and more confident when it is done in class.
Finally, I try to make the tutoring sessions as enjoyable as possible. If the student is not relaxed and happy, they will not be doing their best.

Experience: I have an honours degree in science and a P.G.C.E. teaching qualification. Teaching in both Primary and secondary schools has given me a wide range of experience in Maths, Science and English.


During the last few years, I have coached pupils from 6 to 16.Although I have occasionally visited pupils in their homes, I now ask pupils to visit me, so that I have access to a larger range of resources

We love Wendy! She makes the lessons so comfortable and breaks things down very well. She was able to grasp my sister`s ability very quickly and the lessons are definitely catered to what she struggles with most. Laila has been improving in confidence greatly. Thank you so much Wendy, we deeply appreciate all your help.

What a find! We feel so lucky to have found Wendy. She is absolutely brilliant with your 9 year old making the lessons fun and engaging. We have seen real progress in the few weeks that she has been having lessons. Our daughter is also very positive about the lessons which is a huge testimony as, let`s face it, they aren`t really what we all want to be doing on a Saturday morning! Thank you Wendy!

My daughter has only just started with GCSE chemistry lessons with Wendy. She really enjoys her lessons. Her confidence is back after just couple of lessons and I am sure by end of the school year results will be great. Thank you Wendy.

We`ve actually met Wendy at home for an initial meeting with my daughter with a view to her being Cerys` Maths teacher. Lessons commence early September. She put Cerys at her ease and all looks very promising as this is the start of education outside of the mainstream secondary sector

Wendy engaged with my reluctant 8 year old very quickly. She is now keen to go along for her sessions. Wendy has covered many topics and increased her confidence to tackle challenging topics. Wendy also gives detailed, helpful feedback on each session.

My Grandson had a few lessons during the holidays, and found Wendy very good at explaining the areas he was having trouble with. We shall not hesitate to go back to her in the future for more tuition.

We have found Wendy to be great with our 10 year old reluctant maths pupil. She makes the lessons fun and enjoyable for him - he is always happy when she comes and willingly tries his best. His maths has definitely improved after just a few lessons
