The best present for a brighter future

In 2012, I started my tuition and life coaching business because I was disillusioned with the classroom setting, which I felt didn’t allow me to meet fully the unique needs of each individual.  I could see that students had such great potential and that with specific one-to-one support they would be able to achieve so much more.

With trepidation, I left my secure position to pursue my vision.  My first client was underachieving in their SATs practice tests, attaining less that 50%.  Together we built on strengths and addressed weaknesses; confidence increased and two months later a score of 90% proved I had been right to believe that focussed one-to-one support could make a difference (although even I was surprised by how much!).

Since then, I have continued to offer this to support to both children and adults, through tuition in English and maths, both for 11+ and GCSE exams, but also to improve confidence in ability, study and exam skills, and provide assistance in developing strategies and techniques for increasing success and enhancing life.  In addition, I offer life coaching to adults who wish to make changes to improve their lives.

It is never too late to change your course in life.  After leaving college over 30 years ago, I worked for a number of years in secretarial and admin roles.  Then in my 30s, with a baby and a toddler, I enrolled on a part-time degree in English Literature with Sociology and Psychology, graduating with an upper second class honours. I then studied for a teaching qualification and took on a role in a college teaching English and Psychology A level.  In 2016, I took a formal Life Coaching qualification to support my holistic approach, which centres around the ‘complete’ individual.  I’ve been through the process, I understand the difficulties, but I know first-hand that they can be overcome with successful results.

I believe that learning is a pleasurable and lifelong experience, that school is not something to be ‘endured’, that life can be improved by taking small steps to create a better present, which will amount to a giant leap in the future…and that we are all capable of so much more than we imagine.
