Why choose me?

I'm a teacher, tutor, childminder and mum all rolled into one! 

Having thoroughly enjoyed being a Primary School teacher for the past 15 years, I have gained a lot of experience working with many families and children with a wide range of needs. Being a new mum myself, I can now appreciate family life in a completely new way. I strive to provide excellent care and learning support for all the children I look after, utilising my experience from my teaching career to ensure your child receives the best. 

My Story

Love every minute of your journey, the ups and the downs. Treasure every precious moment, live, explore, laugh and love. 

Miss Rix - Teaching Abroad

After having taught in the UK for a few years, I decided to embark on an adventure and mix my passion for teaching with my passion for travel. I taught at a British International Primary School in Penang, Malaysia for 3 years. I met an extraordinary group of people from across the globe whom I am still friends with today. I taught a huge variety of children from different cultures (Chinese, Malay, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Thai, European and American). I learned so much from my students, their families and my colleagues and friends. I was lucky enough to travel to many places in Asia during my stay. Now I am back in the UK, I make sure my lessons and activities cover International topics. Technology has made our world a very small place and I believe it is crucial that children learn to appreciate and learn about different cultures and develop a passion for travel! 


In November 2015 I had my gorgeous Son, Thomas! He teaches me something new every day. Watching him grow, develop and explore his world around him inspired me to become a childminder. He is a very happy and smiley boy and enjoys learning and playing with others. I feel very happy to be combining my career with tutoring and childminding which fits around me and my family at the same time. We look forward to you joining us in all the fun!
