Rachel has worked with children aiming to attend the following schools:
Rachel has been a Primary School teacher for the past 14 years with a wealth of experience. She has spent the last ten years working at Northbridge House Pre Prep in Hampstead and has been tutoring children individually, specifically preparing children for the 7+ with fantastic results.
She builds a fantastic rapport with both children and parents and understands fully the demands and pressures on families during this time. She is there to fully prepare and help ease the journey through entrance exams.
Rachel is able to differentiate lessons to pitch learning objectives at the perfect level for your child. Her lessons are fun, memorable and she is consistently able to extend prior knowledge and build children's confidence across all areas of the curriculum.
Her drama background makes her a suitable candidate for hot seating and developing interview skills so that children can confidently communicate their knowledge and attributes to others.
She has worked with many EAL pupils and spent a year working at a top Private School in Madrid teaching English to native Spanish speakers.
She has a wealth of experience with both special needs children and those who find learning more challenging and prides herself on building confidence and enabling them to access the curriculum with more ease.
She loves to travel and has volunteered at several schools around the world including Brazil, Laos and Cambodia.
Rachel qualified to teach Primary education in 2002, and holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from University of the West of England.

"Rachel has provided tutoring to my daughter for some time now (about 18 months) and I can thoroughly recommend her. My daughter has improved significantly in maths and English over this time and her confidence in these areas has improved greatly. Rachel also has helped her to prepare for the Seven Plus exams and she seems well set for these now. Importantly, my daughter has always looked forward to seeing Rachel and the sessions. Rachel has a great teaching style that makes learning fun."

"Rachel really helped Bea grasp the foundations of mathematical concepts, story writing and English Comp etc. She made the sessions fun and most importantly ensured that our daughter had confidence to cope with the dreaded 7+."
