Information about Helen
I`ve worked with children for over 30 years as a nanny, a teacher and a tutor and Im also a qualified children`s counsellor.
I kind of got into tutoring by accident by helping the daughter of a friend with her maths homework. I started off with that one child while teaching full time 10 years ago and I gradually took on more and more children over the coming years while my days in school teaching classes decreased to the point where I am now just tutoring. I do a mixture of private tuition at home and one to one and small group work two days a week at an independent school.
I absolutely love my work and feel that I can really make a difference to the lives of the children I teach.
Availability: Im completely full now until the summer but please get in touch if youre interested in a September slot when I might have one or two spaces free?
I`m available for tuition during the school holidays. (Rate negotiable)
Can help with revision for tests.
Going over tricky topics.
Preparation for a new academic year.

Happy to travel during the holidays
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I`m a qualified and experienced primary school teacher and tutor. I`ve taught in London primary schools both in the state and the independent sector since 1992. For the last 10 years I`ve also worked part time as a maths and literacy tutor.
In literacy I tutor up to year 6 KS2 and in maths up to GCSE.
Over the years I have tutored children for school entrance tests ( City of London and Latymer ) and for both the 11 and the 13+ ( Mill Hill) .. I have lots of experience tutoring for both the KS1 and KS2 SATS.
I get a lot of children coming to me who are really struggling with maths in particular and their confidence has plummeted. I spend a lot of time going over the basics and helping to boost their confidence and their belief in themselves.
I start off where each child is at in terms of their learning and work from there.
To get the best out of children I firmly believe you need a mixture of patience, kindness and laughter in equal measures.
Feedback For Helen (4)
Helen has been great - she immediately worked hard to create a rapport with my daughter and straight away set about discovering her strengths and weaknesses to target areas that she needed improvement on.
Helen is a lovely, patient and thoughtful tutor that went at our daughters speed, found her actual level and worked from there, which built her confidence greatly and bought her up to a much higher level then i believe the school evert could. Highly recommended.
Helen did an excellent job preparing my son for his SATs. He enjoyed the lessons and made significant progress. I am happy to recommend Helen!
