Verity is a hugely experienced teacher having taught in South London schools as well as tutoring privately. She would be a particularly good choice for common entrance exams and has had success with Alleyn`s, Emmanuel, Graveney, JAGS, Rosemead, Royal Russell, St Dunstan’s, Sydenham High, Streatham and Clapham High and Dunraven School.
In her own words:
“I have more than 35 years of teaching experience in mainstream Secondary schools, specialising in Religious Education, History and PHSE and I currently work in schools for children with Special Needs in Primary and Secondary.
“As a tutor for 8 years I have worked with children from age 4 upto 16, focusing largely on English and Maths at all levels and successfully helping students with entrance to State Selective, Grammmar and Independent schools. This has been achieved by not only practising past papers, but by nurturing their confidence in their own ability by highlighting their strengths and building on these. With a calm but focused approach any difficulties they perceive they have can be improved.”
“My son got a scholarship (we found out today), so we are very grateful for all Emmanuel did. My son really enjoyed the tutorials; they gave him confidence and polished his exam technique.”
Tom Fenton is a marvellous tutor, striking a perfect balance of erudition, encouragement, judicious pressure, kindness and humour. His work with my daughter produced stellar results in the form of three scholarships; I can’t recommend him too highly.
