Personal Description:

I currently live near Durham and have worked for 20 years in the school at which I was a pupil myself, as I wanted to give something back to the community I grew up in. I have always been an advocate of language-learning, as I believe the ability to speak a second language opens doors that would otherwise remain firmly shut, and I have always instilled this in my students and my own children.

Teaching Experience:

I am a qualified teacher of Spanish and French with 20 years experience of teaching to GCSE level. I have an excellent success rate and achieved 100% pass rate in August 2017. I have also spent the last 10 years in a pastoral role as Head of Year, Deputy lead for Safeguarding and responsible for looked-after students. I believe these roles have given me a diverse and unique set of skills, which enable me to adapt easily to the needs of individual learners.

Teaching Approach:

I believe that everyone learns in their own way and at their own pace. I encourage students to have a can-do approach to learning, and I firmly believe that having a growth-mindset helps students to not only achieve their goals, but to aim to exceed them.
