Here to help

Dear Parent,

I loved my time teaching in Primary classrooms (well 90% of it!) but one of my biggest frustrations was not being able to give quality time to all the children who needed it.

Some children demanded more of your time than others - those with behavioural issues, some with particular learning difficulties and those who needed constant challenge.

Despite my skill as a teacher and the presence of Learning Assistants, there were always the 'middle ground' children who didn't get the attention they deserved or make the progress I felt they should.

Now it's PAY BACK time. I'm thrilled to be able to offer 1:1 learning just for your child

Primary Maths & English

I tutor children from Y1 through to Y6. My initial consultation lesson will assess learning needs and establish a plan of action.


I provide tuition for all levels, ages and needs. My initial consultation lesson will establish an individual learning plan. Goals and strategies will be put in place.

About Me

A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others" - Japanese proverb


  • When I started teaching it was 'just a job.' I thought little of the impact I could have on the lives of others. Now, over thirty two years later, bringing the best out of people and a passion to see them learn  are what motivate me the most.

  • Born and raised in Cardiff, a graduate of Portsmouth University with a Degree in Geography, I completed my PGCE at the University of Chichester before starting my teaching career in the same city. After that I taught in Montego Bay, Jamaica and in a few different schools back in the Chichester area before working and developing my craft in two excellent schools in W. Sussex & Hampshire - one state, one private.

  • In addition, I have a TEFL Certificate, have recently completed the CELTA course in Cardiff and am a member of IATEFL. In July 2020 I completed a short course on teaching English online. Since the summer of 2017 I have been tutoring 1:1 both Primary and ESOL students.

  • This face to face interaction has provoked me to start Sharpway Tutoring, a great platform to grow this most rewarding profession.



33 years of  teaching experience

  • KS1 & KS2

  • Dyslexia, Dyspraxia

  • Gifted & talented
