My Tutoring & Teaching Experience
Having grown up in Yorkshire, I completed my secondary education in Spain. I then graduated from Imperial College in 2011 with an Engineering degree and I qualified as an outstanding teacher through the internationally renowned and highly competitive Teach First scheme. It was here that I discovered my enjoyment of teaching, particularly when my students consistently achieved higher grades than anticipated.
In the past few years I have focused on assisting high performing students through my various roles, one being the Gifted and Talented coordinator focusing on Oxbridge applications and Extended Project Qualifications. My previous teaching role as Lead of Teaching and Learning in Mathematics focused on ensuring an excellent standard of teaching and learning was maintained not only in my Mathematics Department, but across the school. My most recent teaching position was at St Paul's Girls' School in Hammersmith.
I am currently in my eighth year of tutoring mathematics full time alongside being an official GCSE exam marker.
My Approach to Tutoring
One of my primary responsibilities is the social and physical well-being of my students. I use my character and personality to respond to the needs of pupils and I have a holistic view of my students which allows me to tailor any mentoring or intervention that I put in place. I have an amazing relationship with all of my pupils with them consistently discovering that maths is indeed their favourite subject!

My Client Testimonials
"Claire is a fantastic maths tutor. Our son has improved a lot and trusts Claire. He regularly gets A* in maths in a highly academic school. We have hired Claire for this whole academic year and if possible, to help our son prepare for his maths A-Level next year because she is extremely reliable, punctual, professional, responsible and organised."
GCSE MATHS adult learner
"Claire has a lot of patience and understanding which enables me to learn maths at a pace that is suitable for me. Claire’s passion for teaching mathematics gives me the incentive to learn more about mathematics."
"My son achieved an A* in his mathematics this term. The level is very very high in his school and this is a great achievement. We think that Claire has contributed greatly to this, because she is teaching him so well and helping him to work out maths problems in a very clear way. We think she is a fabulous teacher! "
"Thank you so much for your kindness and teaching Claire. Our daughter had a comment added regarding her maths section on her 13+ entrance exam: ‘She performed very well across the paper. There were no gaps in her knowledge and her algebra and number work were outstanding. Her problem solving was also strong. "
"She thoroughly enjoyed her lessons with you and although she was poorly, she was happy to carry on with the classes. She told me she misses your teaching and would really love to have you back! I hope you don't mind us requesting you again and hope you'll be able to take her back on, if that's needed in the future after her exams. Once again thank you so much for your support, much appreciated. She feels that she has learnt a lot from your classes! "
A LEVEL MATHS
"Claire has been tutoring our daughter, an A-Level student. Once weekly lessons are delivered online as we live outside the UK. We are really impressed by her tutoring style, organization, and explanations which are very helpful for our daughter. She always contacts two days before the lesson to agree on the topic. Claire also provides email support as and when required. We are hoping to continue this tutoring until June 2019 when our daughter will complete her A-Levels. We would highly recommend Claire for mathematics tutoring to any A-Level student."
GCSE ADDITIONAL MATHS
"Teachers like you are very rare & difficult to find! Take care of yourself & good luck for the future! "
"Many thanks Claire for your marvellous lessons, and for helping our son so much. He loves maths, partly to you. We will miss you, and wish you every success in both, your professional and personal life."
YEAR 9 MATHS
"Claire’s online sessions were certainly most enjoyable and enhancing! The fast-paced learning style resulted in my massive progress over the short course of a week. The prep set for me were effective, ultimately improving my arithmetic ability and enhancing my question processing skills! Claire’s patience and guidance make the sessions much more interesting and joyful to take part, I hope to have more sessions with her in the future! "
"Claire is a fantastic tutor, friendly and positive. Claire quickly built up a rapport with my daughter which was great, as initially she was a little nervous at the prospect of working with a stranger online. Lessons with Claire are fun and highly productive. My daughter's maths improved very quickly to the point that she was considerably ahead of her year, and had gained the confidence to use her mental arithmetic skills where before she was afraid of being incorrect. "
"My son fell seriously ill less than three months before the IGCSE exams took place. His school kindly arranged a scribe for him. Claire is a very experienced and professional maths tutor. Apart from revising the syllabuses with my son, she was very patient in practicing as a scribe for him so that he can get used to the arrangement as soon as possible. As a result, my son got the highest attainable grade both in maths and additional maths. We can’t thank Claire more for her kind support and guidance during our son’s most difficult period in life thus far."
"I got an 8 in maths and an A in further maths, overall I’m really satisfied, these were the results I was gunning for. Thanks Claire, I couldn’t have done it without you!"
"Claire helped our son achieve a Grade 8 result in IGCSE mathematics this summer 2018. Her thoroughness and drive raised his enthusiasm for the subject immensely. Claire is totally reliable and committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for her students and matches their learning needs with an understanding of their temperament and personality. Our son was full of praise for his experience of being taught by Claire and will now be going on to study maths in the Sixth Form. Thank you so much Claire, he wouldn’t have done it without you!"
A LEVEL MATHS
"Claire tutored my daughter through her AS and A Level maths. After having tried a few different tutors, Claire immediately found a method of teaching that suited my daughter perfectly. My daughter got a grade that all of us were very proud of and that without Claire’s tutoring, she definitely wouldn’t have got. I’ve asked Claire to now tutor my other daughter for her GCSE maths. Thank you Claire. "
"Claire helped my daughter with maths exam technique at 11+ and we found her work outstanding. Claire’s preparation and the extent of her material was impressive and her high standards consistent at every lesson as well as her focus on the areas of improvement. The results were very good, highly recommended! "

Lily Burnand – Private Tutor in North London
I've been tutoring and working with children part time since I finished school in 2014, and have graduated from Oxford University, where I studied English literature. Before that, I took IB at Wellington College, in which I scored 43 out of a possible 45 points. I've tutored in London, Oxford and Hong Kong, worked as a nanny, and set up and continue to run a school sponsorship program in Nepal, which provides disadvantaged children with the opportunity to be educated in Kathmandu. For me, one of the most rewarding aspects of tutoring is helping students gain confidence in something they thought they would never understand, or felt they weren't good at, turning a daunting task into something enjoyable. I've worked with children who range from 3 to 23 years old, but have most experience with Common Entrance at 11+ and 13+. The breath of the IB course means that I'm able to teach a range of subjects to a high standard, and have great experience balancing academic work with other areas of life, as well as finding important overlaps between diverse subjects and interests. ...
