I am an enthusiastic, committed, qualified teacher with a passion for learning. I enjoy giving the children that I work with confidence and enjoyment in all that they do. I live in Hove with my husband and daughters, and enjoy baking, yoga and reading in my spare time.
I am a primary school teacher with experience across KS1 and 2. Most recently, I was Head of Year 6, where I supported the children through their SATs tests, entrance exams and transition to secondary school.
I have been tutoring children for several years, helping to prepare them for examinations, catch up with schoolwork or to generally build their confidence.
I am very experienced in working with children to prepare for entrance exams/11+. I am happy to provide long term support, or a short term block of booster sessions, to increase confidence and practise techniques.
I have also supported several adults who were preparing to take the professional skills tests in literacy and numeracy, needed to embark on teacher training qualifications.
I strive to ensure my lessons are well structured, well resourced, memorable and fun. I feel that being able to receive 1:1 tailored support gives children (and adults!) the best opportunity to succeed.
