The Key to Success
Everyone deserves the very best chance in life and providing your child with additional opportunities to learn, reinforce and extend understanding is key to developing confidence and the motivation to succeed.
I am an independent private tutor in the South Manchester area, teaching Primary age children. I pride myself on being able to assess quickly, determine next steps and deliver my lessons in a creative manner adapted carefully to the needs of each of the children I teach. I have been doing all my teaching online since March 2020 and have enjoyed finding different ways to engage and support my pupils.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss my availability and what I can do to help your child.

Rebecca K. Testimonial August 2020
I first met Rebecca K. nearly 20 years ago when as Headteacher of an exceptional private independent school I needed to employ a Head of English.
Rebecca stood out against other well qualified applicants.
Not only did she have excellent subject knowledge but showed real passion for enhancing children’s love for learning and excitement.
Over the years she demonstrated this repeatedly and not only in English, her ability and passion for other subjects was amazing and she could readily be asked to teach Maths, IT, Geography to name but a few.
As my career extended to becoming an Executive Headteacher over several schools I could call on Rebecca to advise and recommend about various up to date teaching and learning materials and techniques.
Apart from her professional knowledge she is warm caring person who really cares about the children she teaches of all abilities. She is patient, understanding and quickly appreciates the way a child learns and adapts her teaching to that individual. She has a good sense of humour which she readily uses to get the best out of her pupils without putting too much pressure on them to succeed.
If you require additional support for your child, I would thoroughly recommend you talk to Rebecca, I’m sure you will not be disappointed.

ESL, phonics, grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary lessons in Leamington Spa, UK.
Returning to teaching after a career in newspaper and magazine publishing, I've had recent classroom experience and now offer one-to-one tutorials for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils. Lessons aim to support learning, encourage good grasp of grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction, and promote confidence in verbal reasoning and creative writing. Currently, I am offering online tutorials via Zoom, so location is flexible. Ordinarily, I'm based in Sevenoaks and can welcome pupils to my home. For parents' reassurance, I hold fully updated DBS certification.
I am an experienced, qualified teacher and tutor of 20+ years. I am educated to master's level and have expereince teaching and tutoring primary and preparatory school pupils (ages 6 - 13). I can provide home learning support in all primary subjects as well as specialist English tuition. I have had success preparing pupils for SATs and entrance examinations for independent schools, particularly in Cambridge, (United Kingdom), though I am also familiar with Cheltenham schools. I tailor sessions to the individual child's interests and needs, and work with pupils and parents to meet their desired goals, whether these be to build confidence, to develop creativty or to begin entrance exam preparation in earnest. I usually set a short piece of homework at the end of each session and review this with the pupil in the following session.
I am currently working only online via Skype and Zoom to deliver lessons but will also consider other mutually agreeable, secure platforms.
My basic rate is £30 per hour but this may be adjusted up to £35 or down to £25 depending upon the age and number of students, the work involved and any fees charged to me to facilitate tutoring.
