"Through Confidence Comes Success"


Fiona Gardener – Profile


I have over 20 years teaching experience during which time I have been a primary class teacher and a Headteacher with specialist qualifications in Maths and English.


In recent years I have focused on one to one teaching in Maths and English extending my teaching up to GCSE. I feel passionately that these are the basic skills needed to help the young people of today achieve their future goals and their full potential.


I have helped establish Tarka Tutors because it is my view that in today’s pressurized world, there are children who need their confidence and knowledge developed through thoughtful yet focused teaching.


I can sensitively support a child who is experiencing difficulties at school for a variety of reasons and help him/her rebuild their confidence. Equally a child may need further challenges or have a specific learning need and this is what we, at Tarka Tutors, can provide.


My aim is to complement the work done in the classroom by providing a professional assessment, identify the barriers to learning and plan the individual learning needed to help your child achieve success.
