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 Dunstans, 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.
