  • Online Tuition

I have been working face to face and online tutoring for nearly twenty years. I have a wealth of training and experience to draw on and am able to work with all ages and abilities, including adults. I offer a free initial consultation so that achievable targets can be set together. I will plan lessons to suit your needs and interests, offering guidance for home study as and when you need it. Lessons will be carefully constructed to make sure they are cumulative, meaningful, and multi-sensory. Above all, the aim is to make sure you achieve your desired goal. You succeed! 

About Me

I trained as a History teacher, then moved to SEN and have recently completed my Masters in creative writing. I have a degree in History, a degree in psychology, a Masters in education, and a PGCE. I have a diploma in counseling and qualifications to teach yoga and mindful meditation. I have worked both in the UK and overseas and am comfortable with a range of curiculums. I have held responsibility in departmental, guidance and academic positions. My aim is to work with you so that all your needs are met.

Currently, I offer online lessons using Zoom or Teams.

    Anna assessed me before I started university. The assessment itself was fine - quite interesting. The report showed my strengths and weaknesses and helped me to better understand how I learn. It also allowed me to be allocated resources.

    Anna conducted an assessment on our nine-year-old son. The assessment itself was a positive experience for our son. The report was written within a week and was clear and well presented. We only received a screening assessment from the school, so this assessment allowed us to understand what our son needed so that the school and ourselves could provide the best support
