Information about Bernadette
I am a Personal Tutor of English and Maths.
I tutor English up to Year 9 KS3 and Maths up to year 7 Ks3.
I also prepare children for Eleven Plus Tests/Entrance Examinations and Interview Technique.
I am available during most holidays for exam (or general) revision / KS3 `catch up` / and to enhance Writing/Grammar/Spelling and Comprehension Skills.
My aim is to make all my pupils of all ages and abilities feel confident, happy, challenged and supported so they are keen to come to sessions and work with me towards improving their levels and to reach their targets.
Normally, pupils come to me as I offer a quiet and comfortable area to work in with computer access/ all stationary and no distractions, but I do occasionally go to pupils homes if time allows, or during holidays (if they prefer).
I love tutoring and working with children on a one-to-one basis which, unfortunately, is not often possible to do in a class situation.
Availability: Monday to Friday after school until 8:30 pm
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have over 25 years of teaching experience and have taught children throughout Key Stage 1 and 2.
I am currently working in Years 3-6 in a school graded as `outstanding` in a recent OFSTED inspection.
I am used to preparing children for KS2 SATs and know exactly, the standards needed to help them attain the levels they are aiming for.
During the lead up to Sats at school, I take groups of children to teach them how to achieve greater depth ( higher level) in Maths and English.
I am also experienced in tutoring for Essex 11+ and entrance exams for those children wanting to get into grammar or selective schools.
Feedback For Bernadette (3)
Bernadette is a very good teacher and very accommodating. My daughter feels very easy with her and has made real progress in both Maths and English. We cannot thank her enough!
Highly recommended! Bernadette is a fantastic teacher and will continue to use. She makes the lessons fun and is very organised.
I initiated contact with Bernadette through Tutor Hunt website as her profile sounded like just the kind of person I wanted to support my sons learning. Whilst still at the early stages of I have found Bernadette professional yet approachable, responsive to questions asked which I have found reassuring. In particular Bernadette has been flexible and I feel genuinely children centric - for me tutoring is as much about developing good learning habits as it is about passing any `milestone` tests and I hoping Bernadette will help us develop my son`s love of learning.
