Helen is a vibrant, enthusiastic tutor who places emphasis on tutee’s confidence and relationship to education within her structured lessons. She works hard to enable students to think independently and creatively and most importantly, to enjoy their extra study time outside of school. Helen tailors her lessons and teaching style to each individual tutee’s needs ensuring that they can make the most out of the lesson.
She has helped several students pass various exams including gaining places on the highly competitive English bilingual program at the Lysee International de Londres. Having been through the 11+ system herself (and gaining scholarships to several schools) Helen understands the pressure and stress of the application and the best ways to make it as enjoyable as possible for tutees and parents alike. She is also experienced teaching SEN, having several long term relationships with dyslexic, dyspraxic and autistic students.
Helen specialises in English (particularly English for students from international families), exam prep and general study support. She has been a visiting tutor at many educational establishments, including the Pippa Poppins nursery in West London and so has experience teaching across all ages. Her youngest students have been three years old and her oldest are currently in their fifties.
Outside of teaching, Helen is an enthusiastic cook, an avid theatre goer and loves going to galleries and taking advantage of the many cultural opportunities in South London and across the city.
