About

My background

I am a qualified teacher with more than 17 years’ of experience in the education sector in U.K. and overseas. I have experience of working in Grammar schools, secondary and higher education sectors. I also have over a decade of experience in running a tuition centre teaching english and math working with various exam boards in many different roles and as a Governor in many educational institutions.

Teachers

I am supported by my colleague who has more than 25 years’ experience in teaching including working in grammar school and managing an education centre. She has experience of teaching many subjects including English. We offer highly structured courses of tuition to small groups students for grammar school examination preparation for the highly competitive grammar schools.

Small Group Format

The normal group size is 12 children. Our small group teaching process optimizes pupil interaction and makes good use of the small group dynamic whereby the children benefit not only from the teachers input but also from the input and errors of other pupils. This is not possible in larger groups.

Structure of the lesson

Lesson structure varies but most lessons include the following elements. Troubleshooting – an opportunity for children to have individual difficulties addressed. Timed practice - Timed tests aimed primarily at getting children accustomed to thinking clearly under time pressure consisting of 2 or 3 teaching units - from a mix of subjects from amongst English/VR, Maths and non-verbal reasoning. In English we emphasize on English Grammar and in Maths emphasis is on mental arithmetic.

Where we teach

Dartford and Ilford.

Benefit from our experience

Our lessons are personal, targeted, friendly and encouraging so children not only enjoy working with us but gain in confidence and do better at school. We develop independent, resilient and confident students ready to face any challenge.
