Individual and Family Group tuition
Since 2020, online tuition has presented new opportunities for me to reach out to families far beyond the West Midlands. I have been delighted to welcome individual students from the Asia-Pacific regions seeking individual tuition at Key Stages 1 to 3 in the evening in Asia, allowing me to teach in the mornings, U.K. time.
For students closer to home in Britain, current students attending group preparatory tuition for grammar school entrance, who are also taking the highly competitive premier-league independent schools' entrance tests, have priority for individual tuition with me.
Nevertheless, vacancies could arise occasionally if families relocate or circumstances change. I keep a waiting list of interested families.
Individual and small 'family' group tuition takes place at my home in Handsworth Wood. I do not make visits to people's homes: all 'my' families travel to me outside lockdown periods, or work online.
"[Our daughter] has come such a long way in just one term. Thank you. You explain everything in such a clear way, and your handouts and comprehension are second to none. Grammar school is not for her but you've shown her that she can be the best she can be."
Priority for individual tuition is for my current 11+ groups. Occasionally, places are available for individual students from state schools (or students in a small family group, where children are at the same key stage) in the following subject areas:
English and mathematics for Key Stage 2 students (junior school, aged 7-11 years)
English for Key Stage 3 students (secondary school, aged 11-14 years)
Because of high numbers of requests to reschedule pre-booked tuition, and fraudulent requests for assistance in controlled assessments (which should be undertaken under strict examination conditions at school only):
• I no longer offer English, English language or literature GCSE.
• I no longer offer English for A-level or English Baccalaureate (EB) or International Baccalaureate (IB) students (aged 16-18 years)
I am looking forward to welcoming international students for morning tuition (U.K. time). At most times of the year, all available places for evening tuition are taken. There are no places available in the present term. I will announce any available places for individual tuition in the future on this page. Demand from my current students or their siblings is usually greater than places that are available.
Please send me a message via the <Contact Me> form below if you wish to request individual tuition. This way, I will have a record of your request, and will able to contact you easily if a place should arise in the future.
I do not offer individual tuition for grammar school preparation. Please do not contact me to request this service.
