ALL ABOUT ME
I am an experienced private tutor working in the Tendring area. I specialise in Secondary and GCSE mathematics tuition, including Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 GCSE maths, and CSSE 11+ tuition in preparation for the Colchester Grammar 11+ Exam. I am a qualified teacher (PGCE, University College London), with over 10 years teaching experience in London schools.
I am passionate that every child should reach their full potential and that an individual's achievements should be recognised and praised. I believe in providing a caring, friendly environment where children can grow in confidence as they see themselves progressing in their learning.
I provide a very personalised approach to tuition, which is one of the key benefits of tuition compared to learning in a classroom environment. My lessons are matched to the exact level of your child’s to provide optimum progress and to ensure gaps in learning are addressed. I make detailed initial assessments; write individual lesson plans for each lesson; and keep detailed records of your child’s progress. Whether your child is having tuition in a small group or 1:1, I still focus on your child’s individual needs to make sure I bring out the best in all my pupils.
Good relationships with parents are key to enable your child to reach their highest potential; I give honest, friendly advice and feedback, regarding your child's levels and their individual learning program.
Covid-19 and Online Learning
I have recently returned to face to face teaching, but still teach some of my lessons online. A year ago online teaching was a new experience for us all, but one thing the pandemic has taught us is that we have the tools and ability to teach and learn online effectively, and provide the same high-quality tuition as face-to-face classes.
Online tuition meant that we could focus on the teaching and learning and not worry about the risk of catching or spreading the virus. Some parents have chosen to continue with online lessons for reasons of convenience, such as reduced travel times, and online lessons are also a good alternative during periods when pupils or myself may need to self-isolate.

We were looking for a tutor after our daughter experienced difficulties with maths during the March lockdown. From first contact with Fiona we felt confident that she would be able to help.
Her lessons are clear and at the pace our daughter needs to progress her understanding. Fiona is caring and has been able to create an online learning space that has really made a difference to our daughter.
I thoroughly recommend Fiona’s tuition.
