I am originally from London, England, and I am passionate about education and believe that learning should be fun. I believe that a solid educational foundation opens many doors of opportunity.
I have been an educator for the past 11 years. I have taught in classrooms and have also done private tutoring in various subjects including, reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, spelling and math. I am a firm believer in meeting each student where they are academically and then tailoring my lessons to fit their learning style as each child is different and has a unique style of learning that, once figured out, will help them to flourish.
I have taught in several different Montessori schools and have privately tutored students in public schools, private schools and even homeless children living in shelters and the key philosophy that I follow in terms of my approach to education is to "Follow The Child", meaning that if I am observant and really listen to my students they show me who they are and how they learn, and that in turn enables me to teach productively which enables the student to be successful.
My goal as an educator is to instil a love of learning in my students and to equip them with the academic tools to be successful.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been a certified Montessori teacher for 10 years teaching all subjects for ages Pre-K through K. I have also privately tutored children for the past 10 years in grades K through 6th. During my private tutoring it has usually been with students who are in public school, so I also have experience teaching according to the public school curriculum.
I have been a certified teacher for the past 10 years. I have been teaching math to students in a classroom setting and private tutoring for the same amount of years. Each child is different and learns in their own way but I have had great success with my students coming away with a love of math and a love of learning in general.
I have been a certified Montessori teacher for 10 years and was trained in the Montessori Method which, for Language, is based around the Phonics system. I have been successfully teaching children in the classroom to read using this system. I also implement reading phonetically when I tutor children privately with great results.
I am a certified English teacher who covers all areas of the subject, including grammar, spelling, reading, writing and vocabulary. I have helped my students learn to read and write, including students whose first language was not English. I am a firm believer in students obtaining a strong grasp on the English language, not just in being able to read and write but in being able to comprehend what they are reading and writing.
