English (KS1 and KS2)
Maths (KS1 and KS2)
Julia has worked with children aiming to attend the following schools:
In the first lesson Julia will assess your child with past 7+ or 8+ exam type questions (on different topics for numeracy) and will provide feedback to the client. She will then work on any weak areas and will continually practice past exam questions as well as look at timings of each paper.
Julia started her teaching career in 2010 after having completed a CELTA in London. She then went to live for a year in Taiwan teaching English in a local primary school. She also tutored after school both children and adults and found it most rewarding and enjoyable. After having completed an Early Years PGCE from Cambridge University in June 2012, she worked as a full time primary school teacher at Hill House International School and Abercorn Place School teaching English, Mathematics, Science, Art, History, Geography, drama and PSHE.
Julia mainly tutors KS1 and KS2 children and really enjoys the interaction one to one as opposed to teaching in the classroom. She has tutored professionally since 2012 and has covered a range of subjects including Mathematics and English for 7+ and 8+. In December 2014 she ran a Mathematics 7+ and 8+ Christmas revision course. Since 2016 Julia has been teaching on 7+ and 8+ English courses during school holidays. She has successfully tutored many children who were originally struggling to achieve the right grades for entrance to their prep schools. Most recently she intensively tutored several children whose parents were keen for them to get into one of the top prep schools, she was extremely pleased that they were all offered a place at their first choice schools. She is currently tutoring children for the 7+ and 8+ exams for January 2021.
Julia’s passion lies in tutoring young children of mainly 4-8 years old. She is a patient, engaging and a fun teacher who very much wants to inspire and get the best out of each child.
Julia has worked as a Learning Officer in a museum running school workshops and family activities. When she is not in a museum or tutoring, she enjoys taking photographs, hiking, rock climbing and golf.
Julia qualified to teach Primary education in 2012, and holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from University of Cambridge.
