About Me

I am a qualified teacher, gaining my degree from the University of Kent in 1989.

I taught full-time in Primary schools in the London Borough of Hillingdon and Slough for 13 years.

Between 2002 and 2009 I tutored children aged 5 - 16 years in studios and on location in film, TV and theatre.

In 2006 I began offering 11+ tuition for the then NFER Bucks 11+ test. In 2012 the Bucks test changed provider to CEM Durham, and in 2018 it changed again to GL Assessment.

Having continued to tutor through all of these changes for the past 19 years, I now have a wealth of knowledge and experience about the entire 11+ process.


11+ tuition is designed to cover all aspects of the Buckinghamshire GL Assessment exam. At Tutor for Success children attend weekly sessions, completing the entire course of 30 lessons in Year 5.

12+ / 13+

12+ and 13+ tuition focuses on individual children and the Late Transfer Testing Process. Buckinghamshire Grammar schools have differing entry requirements and use a variety of testing processes. Tutor for Success provides individualised programmes of work for both 12+ and 13+ tuition.
