Phonics Tutor

Sarah L

Online Tutor

I am an experienced primary school teacher and I specialise in teaching English to children between the ages of 4 to 8 years old.

Due to my extensive teaching experience I have a comprehensive understanding of how young children learn.  I always plan lessons that meet my tutees individual learning needs to motivate them to learn and succeed. I feel this approach encourages children to become confident and independent learners, which is key to their future learning and success.

My ability to work with parents has always been a strength throughout my career.  I have an open and approachable manner which ensures I quickly build good relationships with the parents of the children I tutor.

“Finding Sarah has been a god send and has relieved a lot of worry at home. Her lessons and resources are very much tailored to our little girl who loves Frozen! Sarah communicates in a soft and caring manner and is able to keep my daughter engaged with positive comments and support. I am so happy we found her and very much look forward to continuing to work with her.” (Parent)


“Sarah started teaching English online to my daughter a month ago. She is a very professional and lovely teacher who understands a child’s needs and tailors the class accordingly. My daughter absolutely loves Sarah. Sarah is prompt, communicates well, provides us with handbooks to print, has plenty of educational resources and uses advanced interactive methods. Sarah is highly recommended.” (Parent)


“Sarah is an amazing, passionate and experienced early years teacher. She has been teaching my 5 year old since he started school, which has tied in beautifully with what he is currently learning at school also. This has provided the opportunity to have 1-2-1 lessons with Sarah to really strengthen and cement his knowledge and thrive which wouldn’t necessarily have happened in a class of 30. He is now beginning to read and is really excelling. Sarah has helped my son to develop confidence and an understanding in phonics and reading which has been wonderful to see. Sarah has a real passion for teaching and this is so evident from the high quality lessons that are carefully prepared.

As a parent I feel I can ask any questions I may have and also have built a really supportive relationship with her which was paramount to me. I would highly recommend Sarah. I feel so lucky to have found such a genuine teacher who is very experienced, professional and knowledgeable in her field.” (Parent)
