Online Tutor

With over 11 years teaching and tutoring experience across both the independent and state sectors, I have helped many children pass entrance examinations to top London schools as well as supporting children with specific subject areas. I offer a completely personalised and tailored approach to bring out the best in all children and have an extremely high success rate. Building positive and nurturing working relationships is an absolute priority for me and parents really value my enthusiastic, friendly, firm and fair approach to develop their children’s confidence. I know the London and Surrey schools well and am able to advise parents regarding the 7+,8+, 10+ and 11+ accordingly. I have also helped many children to pass their scholarship examinations.

“Sarah tutored my 7 year old son twice a week over 5 months leading up to 7+ assessments at two leading, academic prep schools. The tutoring focused on English and reasoning to supplement his teaching in school as I felt he needed more focused support. He received offers at both schools.

I was particularly impressed with how Sarah engaged him during the lessons especially as every lesson was online – she has a nurturing yet purposeful manner to encourage but also challenge and be firm when required. Her lessons had energy – she would move the lesson on and always had a clear lesson plan. She was also excellent at building a rapport with him – he never grumbled about having a tutor session, and even wanted to continue after he received his offers! We are obviously delighted with the results and my son is looking forward to starting his new school in September.” Adele (parent)

“Sarah is excellent, highly recommended. 100% perfect!” Helena (parent)

“Just a few numeracy lessons with Sarah have made a big difference in my daughter’s maths skills in preparation for the 11+ exams. Sarah delivered clear and well-structured lesson with the content tailored to the areas that my daughter needed more support with.” (parent)

“Sarah was a great help with preparation for my son’s 11+. She was continually looking for areas in which he could improve and was very patient and encouraging. Their online sessions really helped boost his confidence for the exams. I would highly recommend.” (parent)
