School entrance experience

Rachel has worked with children aiming to attend the following schools:

I have helped children to secure places for the 7+ at Highgate, South Hampstead, The Hall, Westminster, St Paul's, UCS, Channing and St Anthony's. I also run my own 7+ Mock Exams in the Autumn term to help prepare children for exam day and give them realistic targets to work towards to give them the best chance at success. The mock exams have been really successful, particularly in giving children a better idea of time management, interview practice and to show them what is expected in the papers in order to achieve a high score.

Rachel's biography:

Rachel has been a Primary School teacher for the past 19 years with a wealth of experience.

She worked at Northbridge House Pre Prep in Hampstead for 10 years and has been tutoring children individually, specifically preparing children for the 7+ with fantastic results.

She currently teaches a Year 1 class at Stewart International French/English Billingual School in Kentish Town on a part time basis.

She has been working as a private tutor for most of her career and relishes the opportunity to work with children on a one to one basis.

She is currently available to help with home schooling during the pandemic. She has quickly adapted to teaching online and finds it easy to engage pupils and help them through this challenging time.

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 or home schooling.

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's qualifications:

Recent testimonials:

"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."
