7 Plus, 8 Plus, 11 Plus, English and Maths

Hannah's biography:

After graduating from St Andrews with a degree in International Relations, Hannah spent a year in Hong Kong on a graduate programme, teaching English lessons in a primary school to children aged between 5-11. Upon her return to the U.K. in 2010, she joined the Teach First Leadership Development Programme, where she was placed in a school in West London. From summer 2017, Hannah will become a full time tutor.

During her 8 years as a full time teacher, on top of her teaching responsibilities, Hannah took on a range of leadership responsibilities including Year Group Leader as well as subject responsibilities for MFL and Computing. She has also mentored a range of participants placed in her school through the Teach First programme. She has previous experience of tutoring KS2 children in creative writing.

When working with children, both in and out of the classroom, Hannah is passionate about developing relationships with each individual child she works with, getting to the heart of what engages them and then using this to inspire, motivate and personalise their learning experience. She enjoys presenting learning in real life contexts while also ensuring progress and progression towards the stated learning goals. She has high expectations of every child she works with and has built up a wide range of skills, knowledge and expertise about how children learn to support her in this.

When not teaching, Hannah is a keen runner, an avid reader and an enthusiastic cook! She helps run Sunday school at a local church and, whenever possible, also enjoys the chance to visit art galleries, museums and the theatre.

Hannah's qualifications:

Hannah qualified to teach Primary education in 2011, and holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from Cantebury Christchurch University College.

Mother of 7 and 11 plus students in London

"Our 6 year old was very nervous about having a tutor, and Hannah recognised this and did a first-class job of making him relax so that he could study effectively and enjoy their sessions. She prioritised his learning needs quickly and effectively, and was a pleasure for us to deal with. We would definitely work with her again and wholeheartedly recommend her to others."

Father of 7 plus Student in Chelsea

"Hannah is kind but firm. She always comes with a clear programme of work for both my children. She always gives me feedback and is open to any suggestions or requirements I’ve had. She works really well with the children. One is about to sit his 8+ and the other is working towards 11+ in a year. They are both making progress."
