About Barbara N
Experienced English teacher and tutor
I have six years’ experience in teaching English to primary, secondary school and A-Level students (KS1, KS2, GCSE, AS, and A-Level). In addition, I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) which means that I am a fully qualified teacher with experience in teaching in both private and grammar schools in London.
I have prepared students for 11+ and 13+ entrance exams, GCSE exams, A-Level exams, and Oxbridge entry exams, and all of my students have achieved two grades above their predicted school marks when they have sat their examinations.
I achieved 11 A*s GCSE (including A* in English and French). I studied English Literature, English Language and French at A-Levels (awarded A in all subjects), and I studied Politics and English at Nottingham University, spending a year studying in France (Sciences Po, Paris Univeristy / Institut d'études Politiques de Paris). I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in teaching, meaning that I am a qualified teacher.
I’ve been tutoring for six years, and my students walk away with high grades and a renewed passion for the subject!
