My name is Marianne McKillop. I’m a GTCS registered teacher as well as a musician, historian, writer, gardener and jewellery designer, and I’m looking forward to helping your child to improve their skills in Maths and English.
I have taught English in Scottish secondary schools for sixteen years, and I will bring all my classroom experience as well as my other interests to these Montessori tutoring sessions, making sure that your child receives individual attention and support in their learning, as well as encouragement to build on their existing skills and interests. When learning is fun, it is more effective, and when it is tailored to a child’s personal requirements, it is more likely to be fun.
I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your child, and to helping them explore and understand their world at a pace which suits them.
An amazing teacher, my son has had an introduction with her and 2 lessons so far and the improvement with his reading is amazing, on his introduction she assessed what he could already do and what he struggles with and created a plan with me from there. My son really struggles with concentrating but she knows how to keep his attention on the work without him even realising!
