Putney and Online Tutor

I am a friendly, enthusiastic and highly qualified tutor whose aim is to inspire your child through focused teaching, nurturing their talents and ambition, and motivating them to achieve their true potential. One of my guiding principles is the belief that empathy is the most important skill in helping anyone to learn. I feel it is vital to get to know my tutees well and, in doing so, to understand their way of thinking.

“Charlotte has been a fantastic tutor to my daughter, keeping the sessions interesting and fun. The combination of small group and one-to-one sessions ensured my daughter remained enthusiastic. Charlotte fed back fully after each session and gave me resources for us to use at home to reinforce the learning process. I would highly recommend Bright Light Education!”

“Dear Charlotte. I just want to say a MASSIVE thank you. Primarily, I want to thank you for keeping me sane throughout the madness of the 11+. We couldn’t have done it without you. The confidence that you have given our daughter in maths particularly is amazing and she has gone from thinking that she is ‘rubbish’ to knowing that she can do it. I know that alone will do wonders when she starts school in September. You really have been amazing and gone above what any other tutor would have done.”
Marita, (parent)


“Dear Charlotte. Ella was always happy to go attend one of your group sessions, which I think speaks for itself! You made the lessons fun and I appreciated you going the extra mile to give her homework on areas she found difficult. We are very happy with her 11+ outcome and feel that it was in no small part due to your help. Thank you.”
Nicola, (parent)


“I highly recommend Bright Light Education. The quality of the tuition was excellent and my daughter always enjoyed going to her lessons. I was able to discuss her development needs with Charlotte and together we came up with a tailored programme using a combination of group sessions and one-to-one lessons. I also found the support materials provided were a huge help to me as a parent, especially in areas such as comprehension and creative writing, as it helped me to understand how to coach and support her outside of her schooling and tutoring. Charlotte really cares about her students and is truly passionate about helping them to fully reach their potential. My daughter has now received her 11+ results and thanks to the help of Bright Light Education (and her hardwork) she has a received offers from all of her top choice schools. Thank you!”

“Our daughter is very happy Year One pupil at our local state primary. We chose the state sector deliberately because we didn’t want to overload her with pressure at a young age, and wanted her to experience a ‘normal’ and culturally diverse primary education. At the same time, we have one eye on the future and know when she gets to Year 5/6, ideally we’ll want to her to get a place at a private secondary school. We wanted to find a tutor who could keep an eye on our daughter’s progress and make sure that academically she is on course to stand a chance of passing 11+ entrance exams when it comes to it – but whilst still making the whole thing fun, relaxed, and not a chore. The best thing about her weekly visit to Charlotte is that she genuinely looks forward to it and doesn’t see it as a burden – in fact she jumps into the car and can’t wait to get there! We make Charlotte aware of what our daughter is studying at school that week and she structures the session to complement this. She absolutely adores Charlotte and this inspires her to do her best every week to try to impress her! Just an hour of extra focus each week has helped her to make huge improvements in her handwriting, reading and numeracy, and to grow in confidence. Charlotte was able to pick up on areas which – due to the size of our daughter’s class – her teacher hadn’t noticed, such as her pencil grip and, at one point, her grasp of repeated addition. Having Charlotte on hand, with her extensive educational experience (and specific knowledge of West London schools), feels like we have an expert on our side who will hopefully become a long-term partner in our daughter’s future progress, and someone we can trust to help us navigate a way through what is a rather daunting and overwhelming set of choices for any London parent. Thank you Charlotte!”
Laura, (parent)
