Tutoring with Teacher Tiff

Face-to-face tutoring for 4 to 11 year olds in phonics, reading, English and maths in Bury St Edmunds.


I have over 20 years' experience teaching in local schools and have been head of maths, Key Stage One and Reception. I also have four children of my own (now teenagers).


I tutor from my dedicated tutoring room in my home and thrive on making the lessons active and fun. My main aim is always to increase children's confidence and love of learning, and by doing so their ability and skills increase more rapidly.


I have a great deal of experience in teaching children with a wide variety of needs, but regardless of any SEN, every lesson is bespoke and individual whether in person or online, individual, pairs or groups.


PLEASE NOTE: Since starting my business, I have always been full, with a waiting list, but there is normally some turnover each term, so please text me for a chat if you are interested in signing your child up.

Girl Year 4

This 8-year-old boy only needed my help for a term. When I followed up 2 months after he'd finished with me, to see if the difference made had been lasting and seen in school, his mother replied: "It really has. He's now able to analyse for comprehension. He wants to be an author now! At his most recent parents' evening, he was praised for his ability to edit his own work."
