About Camilla

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught young people in reputable independent schools and have been a GCSE English examiner. Having worked as a private English tutor in the early 1990s, I refounded my tutoring business in 2010, since when I have taught pupils from a wide range of educational backgrounds.

My pupils routinely report improved grades, greater confidence and heightened enjoyment of the subject. GCSE predictions are almost always met or exceeded, while younger pupils are enabled to combat problems to ensure their progress at secondary level.

Pupils have gone on to study at excellent universities such as St Andrews, Cambridge, Warwick, Bangor, Exeter, Durham and Bangor.

I currently teach young people aged 9 to 16 from a variety of schools (state and independent primary and secondary).

Much of my work comes via personal recommendation. Commonly, pupils return for further lessons at later stages of their education, and their siblings and cousins sign up for lessons.

Exam results are strong across the board.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

My enhanced DBS certificate is up to date.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I am the third generation of teachers in my family, and there are teachers on both sides of my family. Teaching itself was my training: immersed in schools and giving private tuition for many years, I have learnt on the job from colleagues and from extensive experience.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Currently, I am teaching from year 4 to year 11.

Much of my work comes from personal recommendation.

I am equally happy to teach late developers, those who struggle with academic work and high fliers.

My pupils come from a wide range of ethnic and social backgrounds across Kent and south east London.
