Chloe Myerson - Private Tutor in Central London
I’m a first class graduate with over a thousand hours of tutoring under my belt. I grew up in London and was educated at the highly selective Graveney School in South West London before going on to read English Literature at Warwick University (most competitive course in the country) where I achieved the third highest degree in my year. I come from a family of writers - and high achievers! I achieved one of the top five marks in the country for my English Literature GCSE and I bring this standard of excellence to all my teaching.
After graduating I went on to work in schools, discovering a passion for education whilst working as both a teacher and SEN specialist in both Secondary and Primary schools. Since becoming a private tutor I have taught a range of subjects and ages and have even spent two years working as the Household Tutor for an American-Iranian family, teaching a boy from pre-school to KS2 (ages 4 to 7).
Early Years and Primary are my specialty but I teach a lot of subjects - everything up to GCSE and all Humanities up to and including undergraduate, as well as 7+, 11+, 13+ (Westminster, Harrow, Eton Pre-test) and US exams. I also am available for residential and Skype tuition.

My Tutoring & Teaching Experience
I began teaching as a Special Educational Needs TA at the Ofsted Exceptional Westminster Academy, where I taught one to one as well as whole class lessons. I was trained there in SEN and EFL (English and a Foreign Language) and developed a passion for those specialties. I then went on to work as an SEN coordinator at Lambeth Academy, where I helped run the department. I left to pursue a career in private tutoring and educational consultancy. I have worked for the best agencies in London and have logged over a thousand hours of tutoring. I have worked in schools, delivering bespoke intensive exam prep for both Primary and Secondary students, and one to one have worked with children from ages four all the way through to adult learners. I have often been brought in as an SEN or behavioural specialist, due to my wealth of experience, to help children who were struggling with classroom learning. I have experience with the entire Primary curriculum, lower secondary, Humanities GCSE and A Level, and have offered specialist essay writing and studying tutorials for undergraduate students. I also have a large amount of entrance exam experience, both British and US tests.
My Approach to Tutoring
I strongly believe that, given the right tools, any student can achieve excellence. My experience teaching in schools has convinced me that education cannot be a one-size-fits-all business, and that children flourish in many different environments. I love tutoring because it gives me the space and time to find exactly what works for each of my students. I have a range of methods and approaches to help weaker students find not just their ability but also their love for the subject, and learning in general. Likewise, having been one myself, I know how important it is for the brightest students to be challenged and pushed in order to maintain their intellectual fire.
I love teaching because it’s constantly challenging, and because I can never get tired of talking to young people.
Fun Facts About Me
I’m a professional writer - working in TV and theatre. I’m currently developing two projects with Warner Bros. and a few others with smaller producers. My plays have been performed at The Bunker in London Bridge, Young Vic (Freshworks), and The Vaults festival in Waterloo.
I love talking about books, or about art of any kind. I also play guitar, bass and ukulele. I am passionate about health and fitness. I run three times a week and also train Capoeira, an afro-Brazilian martial art that incorporates dance, music and philosophy.
My Client Testimonials
Early Years/ Educational Play/ Pre-school prep/ Literacy/ Numeracy/ Science
"“A few months before he started school, Vafa was struggling with reading and counting, and had many issues with confidence and behaviour because of this. We engaged Chloë to work with him on the basis of her strong reputation and experience. Chloë helped him hugely - he found confidence and was able to make a very strong start at school, impressing his teachers with his advanced skills. Through educational play, Chloë was able to bring out his natural talent and creativity. Unfortunately, Chloë had to work abroad for a few months. But upon her return we immediately re-engaged her services as Vafa’s permanent tutor - no other tutor was able to cope with Vafa’s exuberant energy and transform it into academic success. She continued working with him for two more years and was consistently charming and punctual. I would have no hesitation in reccomending her wholeheartedly.” Vafa is now successfully studying at the prestigious Trevor-Roberts Preparatory School in Hampstead. "

Camille Goodman – Private Tutor in Central London
I graduated from Oriel College, Oxford in July 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literature.
