About Me

Selfie square

Hello, I'm Caroline. I have been lucky enough to work as a full time private tutor for several years now, having tutored close to 200 private tutees and countless others whilst previously working as a classroom teacher. Students often arrive at their first lesson very determined that they don’t like science and then leave several years later having just finished a science A level. Even those that don’t continue to A levels will reluctantly admit to missing our lessons when they have finished, or at the very least they will admit to missing the cats!


Like many others, my work moved online a few years ago and since then a significant number of lessons have remained online with my tutees recently been found in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Cornwall as well as my local area in Surrey. For a lot of young people, online lessons bring forth bad memories, but I endeavour to break this stereotype and make mine varied and interesting through the use of google apps - there’s an online whiteboard, file sharing and the ability to view and complete work together just like you would in person.


Due to personal and professional experiences, I have grown a keen interest in mental health and I'm currently working towards becoming a qualified counsellor for young people. I’m also a bat carer for the BCT (something which often raises a lot of questions), an amateur botanist and an active member of both Surrey dormouse group and Surrey bat group. My other half and I are in the process combining our skills and love of the outdoors to form a nature based therapy and education centre in our little woodland near Godalming. There will be more about this exciting project here soon.
