Flora has a First class BA (Hons) in German & English Literature from the University of Durham and an MA in the History of Art with Distinction from the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. She has a wide range of tutoring experience and specialises in preparing children for the 7+, 9+ & 11+ school entrance exams. Flora has success in guiding pupils into highly selective schools such as Alleyn’s, Dulwich College and other competitive independent schools in London. She helps pupils across all subjects including English, Mathematics, Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning.
In addition to her school admission success, Flora has also had several years of German tutoring under her belt after spending her Erasmus year in Freiburg, where she gave weekly tutoring sessions to pupils from 8 years to 17 years of age in English Language and Mathematics, all conducted in German. She has also tutored pupils GCSE German with a strong degree of success.
Flora’s approach is to consider her pupil’s current attainment and confidence and to then map where they need to get to. Flora combines this with a great deal of positive energy and good lesson planning. Feedback from parents suggests that children enjoy their lessons, build confidence and focus on their studies.
Flora is smiley, warm and friendly in person and builds rapport quickly with her tutees. In her spare time, she is an accomplished musician, who enjoys playing the piano and cello.
- “As you can see her background is in the humanities but she has definitely taught Mathematics to several year 6 kids and the parents are happy that their kids have made great progress. She is really good at confidence building and getting the building blocks of the maths correct in a way that a PHD Maths student, although really good at maths themselves, sometimes can’t explain. She has completed 169 hours of tutoring with us and her average review is 5 stars, no mean feat!” – 7+ exam preparation
- “She was so professional, upbeat and just lovely. Cannot fault her. We will miss not having her anymore. Thought you should know as she really is excellent.”
- “Flora gave a first class tutorial. I was very impressed. She pitched her teaching exactly to my current level in German conversation. She has a very pleasant and sympathetic manner. I shall be re-booking next week.”
