She has received a string of outstanding observation reports for her teaching and continuously researches innovative practice.

Victoria left teaching full-time in July 2017 to do a masters in Education and International Development at UCL. She achieved a distinction in her course and is currently doing a PhD in educational disadvantage with the Institute of Education at Manchester University. She is based in London as an embedded researcher at a school in West London as part of the PhD.

Recent testimonials:

"Vicky’s role was to support our son to improve his writing/answering skills in the lead up to his GCSEs. In particular, he needed to identify the best way to demonstrate his comprehension and structure answers in a more effective way. Vicky concentrated on content, structure and grammar… plus gave him some last minute hints and tips to help him gain some crucial marks in the exams.

The aim was to achieve a grade B in both exams in August 2018.

Vicky was enthusiastic, yet patient and encouraging. She quickly identified his weaker areas and supported him with good questioning and ideas to help him tackle these head on…. With the emphasis on him to find the solutions.
Our son felt more confident about his ability to answer the longer, more complex questions, as he was able to plan his answers better after support. He became less concerned about his weak areas (eg spelling) and focused on achieving a better overall result.

Unfortunately, we did not see Vicky as much as we originally hoped (holidays and the fact that the exams were so early in the exam timetable!), however, the times we had were constructive and useful.

Vicky was flexible, punctual and friendly and it was a pleasure to work with her. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
