Personal Description:

I am a retired primary school teacher, with 17 years experience in the classroom teaching a wide range of ages and abilities. I believe that every child should be empowered to reach their full potential, and that setting the right foundations at primary school age is essential to long-term academic success. No child should be left behind, and I am committed to provide personalised, targeted support to all based on my professional experience.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 17 years experience in primary schools, and have taught children ranging from ages 3 to 11 over the course of my career. I have prepared students for the SATS exams in Years 2 and 6, along with other assessments such as the Year 1 phonics screening. Over the course of my career, I have developed bespoke interventions for both gifted and talented children, those with English as an additional language and children with special educational needs - having led for my whole school on provision of the latter.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that there should be no barrier to learning for any child, and that children should receive an education which is stretching, stimulating and tailored to their needs. This applies irrespective of a child's current abilities or any challenges they may have faced in the past. However, it is necessary to understand their personal context - where they are struggling, or where they have reached an advanced level of development and could be challenged further - to understand how to best support them. I believe in taking the time to understand this personal context for each child, and in developing rigourous and robust plans to maximise the benefits to their learning. Once this is done, I have a range of materials and resources at my disposal, all based on the National Curriculum and very interactive with lots of hands on activities which l will use to form an approach most suitable to your child.
