Combining experience and a unique approach
After qualifying with a BA Ed (First) in 2001 (English specialism) I taught Key Stage Two pupils in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.
I took further training to identify mathematical misconceptions and enhance mathematics skills for pupils between the ages of 6 and 11 who found maths challenging.
My experience also includes working alongside, educating and engaging pupils who manage: Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, ADHD, Autism or Anxiety.
Primary School Teaching Experience
Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner (NLP)
I'm a Parent - with 3 children who went through the 11+ process
Years as an 11+ tutor
As a qualified Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner (NLP) I use language to encourage motivation and apply this positive approach to enhance pupils’ learning. I actively promote ‘The Growth Mindset’ in my lessons. (See Dr. Carol Dweck)
This approach enables children to view challenges positively, as a way to learn and progress. There is no such thing as failure – only growth.
Prior to teaching I studied child psychology. Therefore have a natural interest in the connection between learning, behaviours and self-esteem.
Learning = Enjoyment = Performance
We ensure we have fun!
Individual Strength Building
Each pupil is an individual. My role is to enable them to achieve their highest academic level, whilst knowing they are valued for exactly who they are.
I use a range of teaching techniques. These include direct teaching with presentations; independent study with adult guidance; working with a partner; mathematical and vocabulary quizzes as well as a wide range of interactive games that provide my pupils with an outstanding vocabulary.

Becky’s calm and supportive manner, and her quick ability to recognise the individual learning style of every child she works with make for a winning combination. Her honest and detailed feedback mean you always know exactly how to best support your child through the 11+ process, whilst going a long way to ease the worries of even the most anxious parent. We cannot thank her enough for all the support and guidance she has shown our family of three very different young boys. She always knows just how to get the best out of each of them.
