Information about Heidi

I started my own business as a private tutor in 2015. I teach literacy, numeracy, handwriting, and spelling up to Entrance Exam level/SATs.

During the current crisis, I have now adapted to be able to provide the same face to face service online.

I teach mainstream but also have a vast amount of experience teaching children with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, autism, and global delay. I also tutor children with behaviour problems. I have an Honours Degree in Psychology, a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (Primary) and a Counselling Skills Certificate. Those three qualifications combined give me the expertise to help children overcome barriers to learning.

I aim high and want all of my pupils to reach their full potential, develop a love of learning, increase their knowledge and skills and also their self-esteem. I thoroughly enjoy utilising my experience to make that happen.

Most important of all - I don`t do dull and boring. Every lesson is planned around the needs of the child whether they are a high achiever or in need of additional support.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. Please feel free to ask any questions that you might have.


Availability: Monday to Friday - evenings

Saturday - I teach all day

School holidays - daytime or evening

I am happy to book pupils on to regular weekly slot, a short booster course or lessons during the school holidays only.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I hold the following relevant qualifications:-

PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate of Education) Primary
BSc Hon 2.1 Psychology
Counselling Certificate
DBS checked (police cleared)
Paediatric First Aid Certificate

I qualified to teach in 2003. I have worked with children for many years in a wide range of settings ranging from nurseries, through primary schools, secondary (as a TA only) and a Young Offenders Institute. I have been working as a private tutor since 2015.

I have chosen to tutor because enjoy being free of the constraints of the national curriculum. As a private tutor, I can teach each child what they need to learn rather than what we are told they should learn; that makes a big difference.

Thank you for reading my profile. Please feel free to message me if you would like to make an enquiry.

5/5 Rating

Heidi has worked with my daughter for several months. She is always engaging and practical - cutting through difficult concepts and using simple and straightforward language to explain the tasks. We are really happy with the progress made and my daughter enjoys and looks forward to her lessons.

5/5 Rating

Heidi has been absolutely great with my daughter. My daughter has a lack of confidence with her writing and spelling. Heidi went through all the basics with her and found the gaps that were stopping her from writing. All the lessons have been really fun and my daughter looks forward to each one. She understood exactly what my daughter needed, I would highly recommend Heidi.
