Welcome to Expanding Education, I am extremely pleased you are considering our service. If you are looking for your child to study in a caring, friendly atmosphere which provides effective guidance and support, then you have come to the right place.
My name is Claire Wilcox and I have worked extensively in the field of education for 15 years gaining a wealth of experience as a Staff Governor and teacher within the local authority. I have specialised in teaching Social Sciences at GCSE and A-Level, Cambridge Technical Award in Health and Social Care and Pre-Adult Nursing. In addition to my teaching role, I have been a Pastoral Tutor, this has enabled me to support learners throughout difficult times, both personally and academically. This opportunity has provided me with the knowledge required to guide students through their personal statements and the UCAS process. Unfortunately, over the years, it has become clear that further support is required beyond the classroom to equip our young individuals with the skills to flourish.
Further to my professional experience, I am the proud mother of two children who have needed both support and guidance through their time in education. As a result, I fully understand just how demanding and difficult this process can be. Nevertheless, the outcome is rewarding. I am confident in every child’s ability to succeed in education and personal development.
The experience I have gained over the years formed the basis of my rationale to create a unique tutoring service that is aimed at supporting parents, schools and our young people through a critical period of their lives. Expanding Education will supply pupils with various strategies and techniques that schools may not be able to deliver which will enable your child to achieve their potential.
I look forward to working with your child and being part of their amazing journey.
Mrs C.L.Wilcox B.A.(HONS), PGCE, IFL.
