Rosie Tutor


Balham and Online Tutor

Hard working and caring, I have over ten years of teaching experience across Key stage 1 and 2. I strive to create a learning environment in which my pupils feel inspired, valued and, most importantly, cared for. I tailor my teaching to meet individual needs so that each of my students can reach their full potential, and I strive to make my lessons fun and engaging. Being an avid reader myself, I have a particular love for creative writing and teaching children the skills and techniques to create their own masterpieces!

“My son is really enjoying the Creative Writing Course; we have seen a massive improvement in his writing since he started the course. Rosie is a really good teacher and her feedback every week has helped him to improve his work.”
(Karina, parent)


“Dear teacher,
I am writing this letter to you to thank you for all the excellent tutoring in your classes. Over the past three months, you have now taught me oodles and oodles of creative writing skills. I really appreciate the fact that I know how to use these and can use them. In future, I will never ever forget to use my creative writing checklist when given a task like that.

In all the creative writing techniques, from similes to metaphors, from suspense to show don’t tell, my absolute favourite would undoubtedly be the monster effect. You’d think because it has the word “monster” in it, but no. It’s because of the horrific actions such as “torn limb from limb” and “anxiety strangled me”. Creative writing is a fun thing, especially when you get to use lots of literary devices to take your work to the next level.

If I was given a choice to choose the best teacher in the whole wide world, my pick would always be you. Thank you so much for all the knowledge you’ve conveyed to me.

Yours sincerely,
Shivaan (student)


“My daughter enjoyed so much the creative writing course with Rosie. Rosie is not only attentive and inspirational to her students but also provides very constructive and useful feedback for students’ homework. I have noticed a significant improvement to my daughter’s writing during and after the completion of the course. I will definitely recommend this course with its brilliant course structure and quality of tutor!”
