If you and your child have decided that you would like to hire a tutor, I have a wealth of experience to offer you. I have a relaxed and friendly approach and understand how important it is for children to feel at ease in order to learn effectively. As an experienced primary school teacher I fully understand the importance of a consistent approach to supporting children’s learning in areas such as written calculations, for example, but I am also able to offer a fresh perspective and some new, individually-tailored ways of learning.

Marianne has been tutoring William for about a year. She is extremely patient and was very good at quickly understanding what William could and couldn’t do. I was able to stay for the first few sessions which I found very helpful. Marianne is great at engaging William through lots of different resources which we can use at home. William has gone from ‘a cause for concern’ at school to ‘a high achiever’. I was also invited to stay for as many sessions as I wanted to and still do occasionally.I can highly recommend Marianne.
Marianne tutors my two eldest children (6 and 8 years old). She is very child-led, and keeps them engaged by finding tasks and activities specific to their interests that will build up their skill set. For instance my son was quite stressed over reading and writing when he left school, so they will often do science experiments together which he loves. He’s happy to read directions and write lists of ingredients, asking for help when he needs it. There’s always a lot of interesting discussion too. Her manner is very calm and gentle which has earned their trust and respect. My boys are both quite lively and Marianne manages to get the best out of them.
My son has been having tuition with Marianne since last Spring and has so much more confidence in his schoolwork now, especially in Maths. Her real skill has been finding a way that works best for him, and keeping his interest by tailoring the tasks to his individual strengths, weaknesses and interests. We get great feedback after every session on what they've done and why. Marianne has a very calming manner and puts him completely at his ease. She has worked wonders with him, and his predicted SATs results have gone up which is fabulous!
Marriane is one of the only few people I could ever trust to leave my daughter with. Within Marrianes frequent care I watched my daughter grow into a brighter little girl which was always a pleasure to see when I couldn't be with her. She offers a welcoming home, great knowledge and will always help in any way she possibly can to ensure your child can get the best quality of care when with her.

I am a friendly tutor who will always aim to put students at their ease and engage them by make learning as fun and active as possible. I am happy to take whatever approach you and your child feel is most suitable, whether that be in supporting the development of a specific skill set or responding to a wider remit to support learning across the whole of one or more subject areas. This can be led by your child's individual interests (for example, a child who has a passion for dinosaurs may be motivated to write, make books and posters about dinosaurs, learning about sentence structure, spelling and handwriting whilst doing so) or we can follow the same topics your child is studying at school if this is useful context for their learning and reinforces key concepts from those topics. Above all, I am flexible and responsive to your child's needs and progress in learning. I also welcome home educated students and, again, I am happy to take an interest-led, cross-curricular approach or work with your child on any particular skill or area of learning. I worked as a primary school teacher for eleven years until the birth of my daughter in 2010. During my time in schools I taught the whole primary age range from Reception to Year 6, and worked in various roles including Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator and Advanced Skills Teacher, and worked with children on the Gifted and Talented programme. I have a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Sciences, a PGCE (Primary) teaching qualification and a MSc in Education for Sustainability.
In addition to working as a tutor, I am and Ambassador for Barefoot Books, selling books and running children's story sessions for ages toddlers to teens, in Haywards Heath and Brighton. For three years I was also an Ofsted Registered Childminder. I received 'Outstanding in All Areas' when inspected by Ofsted in 2011. I am also a Carrying Consultant and run a Sling Library, advising on and hiring baby slings and carriers to parents across Mid Sussex, and teach BabyCalm and ToddlerCalm parenting classes.
