Subjects tutored: I tutor mathematics, of any kind and at any level.



I have a degree in mathematics and a PhD in history/sociology of science. I also have a PGCE in mathematics and numeracy.

I have tutored mathematics for around eight years, for students from age 10 to adulthood. Until summer 2021, I taught in a secondary school, covering all classes from Years 7 to 13. I am very familiar with the school curriculum and university entrance tests. I have a wide knowledge and experience of extension mathematics, including the UK Mathematics Trust’s competitions.
Why I tutor: The challenge of engaging a student in mathematics, discussing the content with them and being challenged by them, is something I have always and found interesting and rewarding. One of the advantages of tutoring, which I aim to use to its fullest, is that it allows time and space to establish firm foundations through an understanding of underlying principles and processes.


Subjects tutored: EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 English and maths (curriculum support), 7+ and 11+ preparation



BSc (Hons) Psychology
Institute of Education – P.G.C.E. Primary Education

For 30 years I worked as a class teacher, mainly in North London, but also in the North West of England. Over the years I have taught all year groups from Reception to Year 6 and I also have a lot of experience teaching children with SEN and EAL. My time in the classroom affords me a strong understanding of the curriculum, enabling me to quickly identify where children have gaps in their knowledge. I develop and deliver effective targeted support to plug these gaps. Delivering interesting and engaging lessons is very important to me; I work hard to make sure children have fun along the way. I’ve worked closely with many hundreds of children and so I tailor my approach to suit a child’s personality and learning style. I treat all my students as individuals.

Why I tutor: I’m a passionate and committed educator and I love what I do. Working with children, nurturing them, and helping them to reach their potential is hugely rewarding. I will never tire of that ‘lightbulb moment’ when something finally clicks with a student. With tutoring, it’s possible to tailor the lesson to meet each student’s precise needs, which isn’t possible in a busy classroom. I feel extremely privileged to be a part of a child’s educational journey.

I have over 12 years of teaching experience in both the state and independent sectors. In addition to my classroom experience, I also have extensive one-to-one tutoring experience, both online and in-person, for children between the ages of 6 and 13, including those with SEN and those undertaking entrance exams and SATS.

Why I tutor: As a passionate and conscientious teaching professional, I take great pleasure in enabling students to grow and develop their learning. One-to-one tuition allows me to personalise lessons to each student, catering to their interests and learning styles whilst setting an appropriate level of challenge that enables them to meet their potential.

Why I tutor: Teaching has always been my passion, and when a child is struggling with a particular skill, sometimes a creative one-to-one approach is all they need to unlock their understanding. Tutoring gives me the flexibility to tailor my teaching to a specific child, their needs and their interests.


Subjects tutored: I teach 11 plus and 13 plus maths and non-verbal reasoning, 16+ maths and KS3, KS4 and KS5 maths. I also teach Computer Science at KS3 and KS4.

I have been a teacher for over 28 years and have worked in a wide variety of schools, from large secondary schools to smaller independent schools and special needs schools, working in a variety of roles as class teacher, head of department, KS4 and KS5 coordinator and assistant head teacher.

Why I tutor: I enjoy helping students to achieve, and I work hard to help them enjoy the learning experience. It is always great to see students taking pride in their work and their achievements!

Why I tutor: I tutor because I love my subject and I love helping people! I particularly enjoy helping students build their confidence and voice as a writer, enabling them to make real academic progress. I value the creative and academic challenge of creating bespoke lessons for my students which are tailored to their interests. There is a real sense of a partnership between students, their family, JK Educate and the tutor. It also means a great deal to me to keep up my international connections and to support students in countries such as China and Dubai.
