I have forty years teaching experience on which to draw when designing teaching sessions for individual children. Passionate about human development, the neuroscience of learning and key skills, my work focuses on ensuring your child gets exactly what they need for a positive mindset, great attitude and the drive to succeed. I know there isn’t time to teach this in school. The majority of parents do not have either the time, skills or knowledge to do it themselves.
You can spend many thousands of pounds on school and tutor fees to ensure that your child gets the best start in life but this investment can be seriously undermined by their lack of motivation, attitude or weak learning skills. I help to put this right. Using exceptional tools and resources, I design and deliver inspirational teaching sessions specifically for your child in your home or via Skype to help them become a happy, enthusiastic, motivated youngster who is reaching potential, proud of themselves and their achievements and a real credit to you.
My roles have included class teacher, teacher of the physically impaired, special needs teacher, home tutor, middle manager and senior manager; working with all ages from infant through primary to adolescents and adults. I have a Certificate in Education (Cert Ed) with merit, a Teachers’ Diploma in Management (T.Dip.M), Consultancy Skills for Training and Development Professionals and is registered with the General Teaching Council.
I have an excellent track record supporting children through entrance exams up to and including 13+ into many of the leading schools in the country both internally and via Skype/FaceTime when they are relocating from abroad to the UK.
If you agree that that your child ‘could do better’ and you want to do something about it, get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
Life seemed so simple as a mother to one child! Along came number two and with him a whole new set of experiences. For one, keeping him entertained while I was out running after my highly competitive teenage daughter was a challenge. This was my motivation for creating The Playbag. I needed to keep him occupied in limited spaces several nights a week. I needed something that would not take up too much space, tidy away quickly and give him a clean place to play.
After a few years of tweaking the design, The Playbag Company was born in Spring 2015.
Our bags have velcro flaps to keep the contents secure and have created a flat-edged border that looks smart and increases the play area. In 2016 we introduced our first mini collection. That range is hugely popular with versions including Magical Voyage, and Arctic Adventure.
Not only does the Playbag provide a portable carrier and play area, it attracts little friends too. It also provides infinite ways to play, suiting virtually any toy. I created Playbag to be gender neutral and have no real age limit either. Imagination has no limits after all!
