If you are looking for tuition for both Maths and English GCSE, I offer English and I work alongside another tutor who tutors Maths at that level, so this is an option. I’m also an educational progress coach. So if you require coaching, I could also provide that within your tutoring sessions or as a separate service.

Tutoring Style

I have a Ph.D and a PGCE, along with 10 years of experience teaching in the Primary, Secondary, Further Education and Higher Education (university) sectors, and I have tutored both adults and children aged 4+. My teaching style is to ask students questions to see if they know the answers. I then give them strategies to try to work out the answers and guide them to think for themselves to become independent learners. With the introduction of the new GCSE, being able to think for yourself and develop critical thinking skills early is a real advantage.

I have a recent DBS check (formally known as CRB) and references. I do discounts for block bookings of 15 lessons paid upfront. Please see my pricing structure for costs.



I’m mostly based in Southend, Westcliff-on-Sea and Southchurch, but here is a list of the areas I cover face-to-face:

Chalkwell, Leigh-on-sea, Prittlewell, Shoeburyness, Southchurch, Southend-on-sea, Thorpe Bay, Upminster, Westcliff-on-Sea.

I cover all other areas (including internationally) through online tuition via Skype.
