Private Tutor ~ Childminder ~ Healing Therapist

Serving the Carse of Gowrie Area - PERTH, SCOTLAND

PRIVATE TUTOR (face to face or ONLINE TUITION services) and CHILDMINDER in PERTH. I am a fully qualified primary school teacher and have taught in a variety of schools across the South West of the UK and Asia. Having thoroughly enjoyed my career over the past 15 years and recently become a mum myself, I now offer PRIVATE TUITION or CHILDMINDING services to families in/near my local area GLENCARSE PERTH in my family home, a home from home environment with excellent facilities. Recently relocated back here from South West England - getting back to my Scottish roots! 

NEW - 2018 - ONLINE TUITION & Reflexology

Very excited about expanding my services this year. Firstly with tuition moving to an ONLINE platform, as well as face to face, therefore able to support learners anywhere, worldwide with a WIFI connection! Secondly, I am thoroughly enjoying studying a Diploma in Reflexology to explore the complimentary healing elements and techniques for therapy. We all need time to unwind and restore balance. I spend a huge amount of time as part of my role as a teacher and childminder developing close relationships with parents, who are in need of time to take care of their own well-being. I will soon be offering this service to my clients.

 I currently offer support in ENGLISH and MATHS for Primary and Secondary aged school children, covering any level and exam preparation. I also teach Piano & Music Theory (Beginners to intermediate) from Age 7 to Adult. It's never too late to learn something new! I also enjoy teaching adults at college who may be wanting to re-sit secondary exams to support their goals in progressing with a new career/course options. 

Whatever your needs, long or short term support, every lesson I lead are carefully planned to suit every individual child/student. My son and I enjoy our mornings together with other local children and love cooking, making a mess with art and craft activities and getting outside or taking a local trip whenever possible. We are very fortunate to have excellent facilities on site, with ample space as well as being surrounded by Glencarse's local woodland. The best place to explore, get muddy and have an adventure! 

I am an active member of my local Childminding group, fully Registered with GTCS and Scotland's Care Inspectorate, Public Liability Insured and member with

Friendly, professional and inspiring in her teaching methods. Sam makes learning very enjoyable and effective. She cleverly identified learning needs and developed lessons with varied resources to address them. Would not hesitate to recommend.

My 8 year son has been attending weekly tutor sessions with Samantha for almost a year. He enjoys his sessions enormously which is great credit to Samantha's skill, passion and gentle persona. Learning sits tightly within the national curriculum, but she tailors it superbly to meet and expand upon his needs in a fun and engaging manner. He has made brilliant progress, as noted by his school.
