Sophie attended Roedean School and Durham University and completed her PGCE at Oxford University. She has 15 years’ teaching experience in public schools and preparatory schools; she has taught English and Drama to GCSE and A-Level and Latin to Common Entrance and Scholarship entry to the leading English public schools.
Sophie has worked as Head of Learning Support, Head of Learning and Director of Studies at two well-known preparatory schools in the South-west of England. She is skilled in preparing even the most anxious for interview and has an intimate knowledge of Common Entrance examinations in most subjects, and wide understanding of those elements of courses that some pupils find difficult. Sophie has prepared scholarship candidates for Eton, Winchester, Marlborough, Cheltenham Ladies’ College and many other public schools.
Sophie’s aim as a tutor is to prepare her pupils so well that they approach examinations fearlessly and as an opportunity to demonstrate what they know. She has a proven track record of obtaining excellent results for pupils. She does this by breaking down the curriculum into manageable sections, smoothing out any problem areas and reminding pupils frequently of the progress that they have made to boost their confidence.
