That's my guiding principle.
I specialise in boosting confidence and motivation while targeting the development of specific skills.
My 6 years of classroom teaching coupled with my extensive private tuition experience enables me to fine-tune my approach to each student.
Learning should be enjoyable, not stressful.
2004 - Present
As a Computer Science graduate, I was able to support students in this subject. However, having studied English at A-Level and with a keen interest, I started teaching it in 2004. It has since become my most in-demand subject.
2016 - Present
I spent 6 years working for companies including the Ministry of Justice, training adults as well as, leading training projects and departments. I currently work as a freelance trainer.
2012 - Present
I write for various types of clients. My past work includes ghost writing books, academic courses and website content (including blog posts).
2011 - 2017
I taught at Esher C of E High School, Langley Grammar School and St. Paul's Catholic College. I eventually left the teaching profession because the immense workload led me to an unhealthy work-life balance. I'm a passionate teacher which is why I continue to teach privately.
I teach students in Years 7 - 9 tailored lessons in-line with their school curriculum.
If they wish, I can also start preparing them for their GCSE exams.

Sumantha is an excellent tutor. She provides well prepared and structured lessons which are clearly explained. She has also boosted my daughters confidence. We would highly recommend Sumantha to anyone looking for an experienced English tutor.
I looked for an English tutor to help my son with 7 weeks to go before his English GCSEs. With 2 sessions a week with Sumantha, I have seen his confidence and motivation to work at his English dramatically increase. He is enthusiastic about his sessions with Sumantha and she is helping him to see that he can do it. Thank you Sumantha.
Sumantha is extremely professional and very helpful, my daughter is finding the lessons very beneficial and I would recommend her highly.
