Independent School Expert
Isabelle is an independent school expert and one of the UK’s most sought after private tutors. With over 10 years’ experience, she has helped students gain entry to the UK’s best independent schools, such as Westminster, St Paul’s, St Paul’s Girls’, Godolphin and Latymer and Eton College. She has also successfully prepared several scholars, including Queen’s Scholars (Westminster) and King’s Scholars (Eton).
Isabelle is a member of British Mensa and studied French and Philosophy at university, including a year studying Metaphysics at the Sorbonne, Paris. She was called to the Bar of England & Wales as a barrister before making education her full time occupation.
Isabelle believes that the most efficient way for children to perform confidently in exams, as well as their wider academic work, is to develop their fundamental skills and abstract thinking abilities before testing with practice questions. Her unique method has meant 100% of Isabelle’s students achieve at least one of their top three schools, and 98% achieve all three.
Isabelle works with parents and children to identify target schools, create a bespoke learning plan that fits seamlessly into family life and advises on every step of the admissions process. She works with students from nursery through to senior school. She also has an intimate knowledge of the US school system and helps students transfer between the US and the UK.
Isabelle has travelled extensively with her clients, including to the US, the Maldives, France, Portugal and Italy. She has worked with many prominent families and is known for her discreet, under-the-radar approach.
She can meet via Zoom or in person.
Isabelle operates an extensive waiting list and early communication is strongly recommended.
