Business overview

I offer English and Verbal Reasoning tuition for 7+ and 11+ exams, as well as English tuition for students sitting GCSEs and A Levels. I also help tutor adult and mature students.

Hello, my name is Barbara and I offer English tuition to students of all ages from Pre-School all the way to University and Adult level. I am extremely passionate about teaching English in a way that is fun, accessible and inspirational.

I have been a private tutor for six years, and prior to this I taught in schools and I also had a three year stint working as a journalist for the Financial Times newspaper. I have worked with hundreds of students in London of all age-groups - from young students in Nursery, to students in Primary and Secondary School, Sixth Form and University. I have also helped mature students who are studying English as a second language to further their careers in London. I am extremely proud to say that over 90% of my students have achieved pass rates ranging from A* - C (Level 9 - 6 in the GCSE syllabus), and they walk away with renewed self confidence in their English skills as well as a newly found passion in English!

Interested in booking a lesson? I offer online tuition and my rate is £65 per hour.

Excellent English tutor for my 10y o daughter preparing for the 11+ exams

Barbara is a very talented, well-spoken and professional English tutor who connected immediately with my 10 yo daughter thanks to her warm and adaptable personality. Her lessons were always very well prepared and she was able to come up with lots of different exercises to practice some of the challenging aspects of the 11+ English curriculum.
Always upbeat and smiling, yet very focused and results oriented, she was able to instill confidence in my daughter (for whom English is a second language). I particularly appreciated her prompt feedback post-sessions where she would keep me up to speed with respect to progress.
In conclusion, I only have high praises for Barbara and cannot thank her enough for all she has done for my daughter. I would definitely hire her back if my daughter, or her older 13 yo sister were ever in need of a little extra assistance in the years to come.

Restored my son's confidence

Barbara is an amazing tutor. I feel very blessed that I found her. I needed a tutor last minute to help guide and restore my son's confidence for his GCSE English exam. She is a very professional tutor with a positive teaching ethics. She is very efficient and punctual. Her method of teaching was spot on. She taught at an excellent pace that suited him very well. Above all that she's a really nice person. I highly recommend her. I have a new son that has been transformed. Thank you Barbara.
