How can we help?

Since this time, Rachel also worked supporting trainee teacher students at the Suffolk and Norfolk SKITT and also within a local primary school as a subject specialist support for SATs exam level boosting for high ability year 6 students (teaching for gifted and talented year 3, 4, 5 and 6 students).

Rachel considers herself to be a maths specialist at teaching the 11+ and with her wealth of teaching experience she is able to support students with the "easiest methods" for the syllabus topics...
