I`m a qualified teacher who works in Essex (year 5) and though I`ve never formally tutored before, I have been working with children on and off for the last 15 years. I love my subject and am passionate about making it accessible and interesting to children of all ages and abilities. I am comfortable in engaging those children for whom English is not their first language or see reading and writing as `boring`, as well as those who need to be stretched, challenged or taught the tricks of the trade needed to pass exams. Prior to teaching, I worked as a Commercial Manager for a standards agency and for a business consultancy, so would be very happy to work with older children for whom business and marketing writing is an area they`d like to develop. I`m also able to tutor for other subjects at a Primary level, particularly Maths, as well as tutoring specifically for 11+ exams.
