With just one week of tutoring left until the summer holidays it is hard not to reflect on the learning that has taken place this year.

I have had the pleasure of working with children from 2 years up to 12 and have made everything from dinosaur fossils out of pasta and magic spell books to jam sandwiches!  While tutoring we have tackled, among other activities,  scary stories, celebration reports and many new ways to learn spelling words.  It has given me quite a challenge to find ways of teaching all the different components of language in interesting ways and with just 55 minutes a week rather than 5 hours, 5 days a week!

I have attached my  Summer 2013 newsletter which has the details of next terms workshops at the end.  If you would like to sign your child up for any of them please complete the application form or send an email to

Finally I will take the opportunity to wish you all a very happy summer.

Just to keep my website up to date, I am now fully booked for tuition.

I do have a waiting list so if you are interested in your child attending lessons please contact me and I can send you the information sheet.  Although I do not anticipate having any space until January at the earliest, situations change and as we all know people can be relocated unexpectedly.

Thank you to those students who allowed me to take photographs of them during their lessons.  In the private tuition section you can now see pictures of some activities which we do during tuition along with examples of some of the new books that are now available for reading activities.

I will be offering private tuition for children from 4 – 12 years old.  Lessons are available on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon and last for 40 minutes.

The first lessons will take place on Wednesday 18th April and there are limited places available.

More information can be found here or by emailing Karen at

There are still spaces available on the ‘Creative Characters’ workshop on the 23rd April.  Whether your child would like to be the brave knight, clever princess or crazy clown this workshop gives them the opportunity to explore and create characters.  If you would like more information or an application form please click here.

I am delighted to confirm that I will be offering private tuition from beginner readers and writers through to more advanced primary school skills.  The tuition will take place on a Tuesday afternoon in the centre of Thalwil.  There are very limited spaces so please contact me (Karen) on if you would like more information or to register your interest.

I will be holding an open afternoon in a few weeks which will give people interested in private tuition a chance to meet me, see the resources I have available and discuss what is on offer.  If you would like an invite to this open afternoon please email me (Karen) at  There is no need to contact me if you have already noted your interest.

I have been asked if I offer private reading and writing lessons (beginners and more advanced readers).  I am looking into organising individual lessons in Thalwil.  If you would be interested in these please email Karen directly at so I can keep you informed about developments.
