About Carrie
Sat Tutoring

“My vision is for children to progress and achieve to

the best of their ability.

I do this by teaching subjects in a way that is

accessible to them.

I enable children to develop their thinking skills to a deeper level; when a child understands not just what they learn, but how they learn, they become independent and confident students who are more likely to succeed.

Carrie Burke Tutor Work exists solely to support and empower young people with the knowledge, skills, confidence and emotional resilience they need to succeed in Upper Key Stage 2 and entrance exams for grammar and independent schools.


Whilst there are no guarantees of grades, she firmly believe that a child-centric approach and a thorough grounding in skills, knowledge and exam technique equips children well to flourish in their exams. This in turn gives them the best chance of landing a place in their preferred school, or the best preparation for the sometimes tricky transition into secondary school.


Carrie has an MA in Social Sciences and a Post Graduate Certificate of Education in Primary Education. She is a practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). With a decade of perfecting her craft in the classroom, she has successfully headed up her own tutoring business for the past 8 years.


The newly opening centre in Reddish is the next step on Carrie’s journey. Children will be taught in small class sizes, with individually tailored learning programmes. There will be an emphasis on creating a relaxed learning atmosphere where students learn higher order thinking skills and emotional coping strategies alongside the curriculum.
