I am a caring and patient qualified teacher with over 7 years experience. I have a breath of classroom experience, having worked with a wide range of students including those with special educational needs. Since 2018 I have been tutoring both Face to Face and Online, I always tailor the level of work covered to the individual student’s needs. To develop both their self-confidence and attainment levels. I am really enjoying supporting my students to reach their potential.

• Early Years, KS1 and KS2 - Maths, English (Phonics, Reading, Handwriting, and SPAG), and Science.
• KS3 - Maths and Science
• KS4/GCSEs - Maths (Foundation Level) and Biology
I also offer Test Preparation for:

I can also offer Transition to Secondary tuition for children who lack confidence or have gaps in their learning from their time in Year 6, to enable them to reach their potential in Year 7.
From September 2020 I can also offer GCSE Maths (Foundation level) and GCSE Biology exam preparation.

A few testimonials from recent past and current clients (more are available to view on my website)
"I just want to send my thanks for offering us online tutoring via Skype. Following a few weeks of face to face lessons, a change in circumstances meant my daughter wouldn’t be able to attend for 3 weeks. Rather than have to cancel you offered us online lessons which I was happy to accept, but to be honest a little sceptical. I shouldn’t have been. The lessons are structured really well and work perfectly using webcams and online learning tools. You’ve done a really great job of keeping the lessons interesting but also really focused. We’re happy to continue with our online lessons and have now booked more for the Easter holidays. We highly recommend them and Nicola to anyone."

"Nicola has been tutoring my daughter for about 6 months. She makes her lessons fun and during lockdown her online zoom lessons have been invaluable. My daughter was lacking confidence in maths and literacy and Nicola is really helping her to build confidence, especially in maths which she has made good progress in. I would highly recommend Nicola and her friendly and fun approach to learning."

"Nicola has provided excellent maths tuition to our daughter who is in year 8 and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking about having tuition for their child . She has provided wonderful support and we have seen our daughter’s progress with her maths improve dramatically since starting tuition with Nicola; she has really made a big difference and our daughter’s confidence with her maths is far greater than before. We moved from face to face tuition to online tuition as a result of the COVID-19 situation and this transition has proven extremely successful. Our daughter has continued to thrive with her maths with the online tuition and she really enjoys using the online tools and interaction during her sessions, we have been very impressed with this method. We would highly recommend Nicola’s tuition service and would like to say how grateful we are for her continuing support, professionalism and calm approach; she continues to be a welcome source of relief for our daughter, who before her tuition was finding maths a struggle but now has the understanding and interest to develop and learn and enjoy this subject."

"Nicola has provided very thoughtful, thorough Maths tuition for our son in year 6. She has really been creative in the sessions, thinking of personally tailored ways to engage his interest. She has a kind manner and has helped to build his confidence as well as his ability. For a child who thought he couldn`t stand Maths, I`ve been amazed by how much he has enjoyed his lessons. The online lessons have worked brilliantly too."
