Private tuition can work wonders for people who are struggling, especially in Maths and English. Do you need help straightening out subject knowledge? Are you preparing for tests and exams? Do you need a boost in confidence? A few hours of dedicated help can make a huge difference in grades and achievement.

If you live in the Lancaster area and need some help, please get in touch to discuss my discrete and professional private tuition sessions.

Professional Background

I trained as a teacher at St Martin’s College, Lancaster, specialising in English (2007).

Since 2011, I have taught Maths as well as English, and in 2014 I began teaching ICT Functional Skills.

I qualified in Advice and Guidance at Lancaster and Morecambe College (2012).

2010 – 2011 Avenir Training Ltd

I taught English to 15-19 year old boys who were applying to join the army. I created the course, taught the lessons, designed the worksheets and arranged the exams.

2011 – 2012 TEST Training

I taught one to one maths and English lessons to adults who were already working. I also taught groups of people on job seeker programmes.

2012 – 2014 Housing and Care 21

I taught one to one Maths and English lessons to adult care workers who were completing their NVQs and Apprenticeships in the workplace.

2014 – 2015 PDM Training and Consultancy Ltd

I worked as a specialist Maths and English advisor, giving advice to staff delivering training in workplaces.

2015 –   LearnDirect Ltd

I work as a specialist Functional Skills tutor (English, Maths, ICT) giving advice on delivering these subjects and providing specialist support for learners with particular needs.

Private Tuition history


In 2011 I worked with two women who needed to pass maths exams to finish their degrees in Early Years child care. After some intensive private tuition they both passed and have now been awarded EYPS (Early Years Professional Status)


I help people who want to train as teachers to prepare for the QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) tests.

All teacher training applicants must pass the tests in Maths, English and ICT before they can be accepted onto their course. If you are struggling, please get in touch and book some private tuition. I had to pass these tests myself and am very experienced in helping others to get through them

Nursing Maths and English

In 2012 I worked with a young man applying to become a nurse. He passed his maths test and is now training to be a mental health nurse.

In 2016 I became a preferred provider for the Huntingdon Group, delivering short bespoke courses in ESOL to nurses and care workers.

GCSE Preparation

I also provide private tuition for GCSE exams in Maths and English. Topics of lessons include:

Practice papers
Controlled Assessment prep
Improving timing and technique
Set text tuition, including Shakespeare, Poetry, Novels and Plays
Boosting confidence
