Information about Lucilla
Hi, my name`s Lucilla and I`m 29 years old. I`m a qualified primary school teacher and have been teaching in London for 8 years. I`m absolutely passionate about teaching and have specialised in Early Years and Key Stage 1, where I`ve worked in a Montessori nursery, primary school and prep school.
I`m a hardworking, fun, enthusiastic and motivating teacher. As every child is unique and learns differently I ensure I understand each child`s individual needs and abilities and tailor my lessons accordingly to ensure every child thrives.
My main focus when teaching is to ensure every child is engaged, active and interested through providing a range of activities and games which will stimulate the child`s interest and instil a love for learning, both through teaching in person and online. It`s essential that children become independent and confident learners from a young age which is what I aim to do. I look forward to hearing from you.
Availability: Im currently only available for online tutoring.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I`m a qualified primary school teacher and did my PGCE at Kingston University where I graduated in 2015. I`ve been teaching in London for the past 8 years and have taught across EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Over the past few months I`ve been doing supply teaching as well as tutoring a range of children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3. I also have experience in preparing children for their 7+ exams and 4+ assessments.

Feedback For Lucilla (9)
When I found Lucilla, I had been looking for a Tutor for my little boy for a long time without success. He has a passion and thirst for learning and I was out of my depth in supporting him and at risk of teaching things "wrong" compared to what he will be going on to learn at school. I was looking for someone to work with him in an engaging, fun and age appropriate way to encourage his enthusiasm without putting any pressure upon him. Because he was not yet 4, most tutors told me they weren`t able to support him and I had been looking for the right person for a very long time. When I came across Lucilla`s profile I was immediately excited and felt she had the right background and experience to support my little boy. Lucilla was quick to answer messages and helpful in her communication. I immediately felt that I had found the right tutor for my son. In the first session, my son was visibly delighted with his "new friend". The work set was appropriate and fun. Lucilla has a fantastic rapport with him (which is not always easy to do via Zoom!). At the end of the first session my son cried that it was time to finish as he wanted to carry on "playing" with his new friend. Every week the lesson follows a similar routine which suits my now 4 year old but develops a little further the topic they are working on. His writing has come on leaps and bounds and he really looks forward to his sessions. In short, I would not hesitate to recommend Lucilla for any child looking for support. I was seeking support for an "advanced" child, but I have no doubt that Lucilla`s personality and ability to engage would benefit children needing extra educational support as well as advanced support. I can`t thank Lucilla enough or recommend her highly enough.
Lucilla was kind, serious, efficient, and really great at encouraging my daughter, who has some nerves around reading. Lucilla dives right in and makes the most of the tutoring time. Highly recommend.
Lucilla has been amazing. My 6 year old loves her lessons which are always very topical, yet fun. My daughter`s reading and sound recognition has improved drastically and I can recommend Lucilla as a tutor.
Lucilla has been teaching my 4yo kindergarten going son phonics, maths and french. Each session with Lucilla has helped my son build his confidence and understanding of the subjects. Within a few sessions of maths, my son can now write number sentences and he understands the concept of take away and addition. He drops french words every now and then testing my own french abilities! Lucilla works hard to keep her students engaged which via a zoom session can be quite challenging. She has also taken onboard my feedback very willingly. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.
My daughter has been tutored by Lucilla for 4 weeks now and Im absolutely delighted with her progress. Lucilla is amazing with her and manages to keep her focussed which is a task in itself! My daughter finds doing phonics and maths activities really fun. Lucilla has great energy and its clear she really cares about her students ! I couldnt recommend her enough :)
My little girl loves her lessons with Lucilla. She really loves learning and is missing the structure of sc. she really looks forward to her lessons and Lucilla is able to really engage her and make it fun, the time flies by. In the short time weve been having lessons my little girls conference has gone up and she really enjoys the lessons
Lucilla is fantastic! Her positive energy and comprehensive understanding of Early Years education has really helped my 3 year old daughter get out of her `shell`, and advance in her understanding of phonics, letters, reading comprehension and shapes, to name a few things. My daughter actually looks forward to her lessons with Lucilla. I also really appreciate the feedback Lucilla offers to me after a lesson. Very grateful to have her teaching my daughter!
We noticed an improved difference in my daughter`s reading and writing after only 2 sessions.
Lucille came across as a bubbly and friendly person and was able to accommodate her sessions to suit our family needs. My daughter looks forward to her sessions with Lucilla and I highly recommended her.
The moment Lucilla walked through the door my daughter loved her. She made the lessons fun, imaginative and tailored to my daughters own learning style. I can highly recommend Lucilla as a tutor.
