About me My name is Krisztina Lanham and I am a qualified Teacher with over 15 years’ experience in teaching and tutoring in both Mainstream and Special Needs Schools in the UK and overseas. I specialise in Primary KS1 and KS2 English and Maths. I am fully trained and up to date with both the English and Maths National Curriculum. I am fully CRB / DBS checked. I regularly tutor children to help them prepare for SATs and 7+ and 11+ exams for independent & grammar school (private) entrance. Handwriting, verbal skills and homework are areas covered with many students. I also have а wealth of experience tutoring children with Special Educational Needs, including Autism, Down’s Syndrome, ADHD, Asperger Syndrome and other Learning and Physical Disabilities, as well as those who simply need extra support in subjects they are finding challenging at school.
About my tutoring My tutoring style is fun, encouraging and sympathetic. I am а patient, bubbly and enthusiastic teacher who loves to include music and games in my teaching. I tailor my lessons to the individual student’s needs. I strongly believe in the Learning through Play method therefore I regularly back up my lessons with fun online games and activities, books and other materials – all provided free of charge. I know that the Maths and English Curriculum can be confusing and daunting for some children and they can easily lose their confidence before they can move onto more complex activities. Others need that little extra encouragement and confidence to enable progress to a higher level. While some may need a gentle push and challenge to maximise their potential so they really can excel. Whatever stage your child is at, my tutoring focuses on providing the knowledge and confidence they need to enhance their Maths and English problem solving and reasoning skills. I always build good relationships with both students and their parents and all lessons are tailored to the individual student’s needs. Parent feedback can be provided immediately following a lesson or via text.
Why choose me? My results speak for themselves – all my students have raised their grades. All have greater confidence and actually enjoy subjects they previously disliked. Do not just take my word for it - some testimonials (more available on request): ‘I’ve seen a marked improvement in my daughter’s maths since Krisztina has been tutoring her, she really enjoys the sessions and Krisztina is helping to build her confidence as well as improving her maths skills.’ – Parent’s feedback 'When I first started in year six, I was unsure of a lot of topics. Krisztina has really helped me to understand my work better. She's really nice and I feel comfortable asking her anything I don't understand. I like having a one to one tutor who focuses on the things I want to do. She also gives good feedback after our session so I know if I've improved'. – Student’s feedback
My availability I am very flexible. I tutor any time during the week and sometimes at the weekends too. I understand that parents can’t always commit to lessons at the same time every week so I’m always happy to try to accommodate changes. I tutor during the day as well as after school and therefore available to assist with homework and home-schooling. During school holidays, I am available most of the time. Please note that I only tutor from my home.
