I originally trained and worked as a secondary school english teacher, but I found the pressure in schools led to teachers being overwhelmed with paperwork and the teaching element almost became a lesser priority. Now I prefer to focus on private tuition where my primary aim is teaching and enabling students to achieve. At Perfect Plus Tutoring, we strive to create an academic atmosphere which is enjoyable as well as beneficial. I offer private tuition to students in North Kent, Medway and Maidstone areas.
Enthusiastic, friendly and patient ,I am a qualified French, Spanish teacher and Primary School, Eleven-Plus Tutor with 18 years’ experience, fully insured and CRB checked. I have taught children as young as 6 and adults as well. I have a passion for teaching and learning and I believe that self-esteem and motivation are key factors in achievement. I have found one-to-one teaching very rewarding and I make sure that learning takes place in a relaxed but studious atmosphere. . I adapt my lesson to pupils' level, personal needs and learning styles and make learning fun and enjoyable.

As tutors and mentors, we have realised the importance of educating and nurturing the next generation to reach their full potential and become confident adults; developing a positive relationship with parents/guardians is equally an important part of that successful tuition process.
I've been a teacher and tutor for over 30 years and feel I'm just about getting the hang of it now. In addition to teaching content, I focus particularly on trying to change how my students learn, aiming to provide them with the kind of education and encouragement I would want for my own children. Not that I actually do provide that for my own children, of course; I’ll be looking for some other sucker to tutor those little monkeys. I specialise in maths and physics but also run sessions on essay writing (which concentrate on improving grammar, punctuation and structure). Most of my students are studying A-level or IB, but I also run some GCSE and 11+ sessions. If this sounds like it might work for you just drop me a line and we'll have a chat. Thanks.
I am an excellent, fun and very experienced Maths Teacher. I have been teaching pupils how to pass the Kent Test with much success over the past 17 years. Get in touch and I will be happy to answer any questions. First lesson free because I am confident you will be happy with me.

Our Promise to Parents
“We have spent the last eight years refining the service we offer our students, and the parents who have faith in our ability to help their children. It might sound boastful, but we are exceptionally good. The way we work is one-to-one, within a small group, with every student working to a customised learning plan (no more than four students per teacher at any time). That’s really important. We build and develop a bond of trust so that the students – far from thinking that they can’t achieve – work with their tutor to, first pass through their perceived barriers and then, fly well beyond them.
Book a FREE consultation and educational assessment with us, and we will tell you exactly what we can do to help your child. We will:
tell you which areas need help in order to improve recommend & design a tailored learning plan give you regular feedback assess progress and amend your child’s workplan as appropriate
If your child is doing just fine, then we’ll happily say so. You don’t have to make any minimum commitment to attend because our success is built on results. That’s always been our approach and it always will be. It’s why over 90% of our students come to us from personal recommendation."
We are a long established tuition centre in both Hadleigh and Benfleet. Previously Kumon we changed to First Class learning in 2013.
We teach from pre-school through to year 5 in maths and English and from year 6 through to year 11 in science.
We prepare students for the 11+ exams both CEM and CSSE and local school exams.
Students do work in class and also at home, which they return each week. Classes are kept small and so invariably we have waiting lists.
Our 11+ class starts from year 4 so as to give the students a good foundation rather than intensive tuition.
