Information about Sarah
I am a Derby based teacher and tutor and have worked at local schools such as Chellaston Academy, Derby High and Derby Grammar. I have several hobbies which include playing and performing as a singer/pianist, walking my border collie and having fun with my 5 yr old daughter!
I am available for weekday and weekend tutoring and can also offer tuition during the daytime over school holidays.
* I can also offer lessons online via platforms such as Zoom and most of my lessons are being delivered in this way during the current restrictions on face to face lessons. I have a very flexible approach and my primary and secondary pupils are responding very well to online teaching.
