Personal Description:

I am a cheerful qualified teacher who specialises in improving primary
students literacy skills.(years 4,5 and 6). I work from home during term time and also in the school holidays. I hold a CRB check.
I have a wide range of text books and materials for all levels of primary student ability. I am up to date with current educational practices.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a very experienced primary teacher who has worked in state and private schools .I am able to work with students to build their confidence and ability to study. I plan my tutorials to suit an individuals needs.
I am often asked to help students to catch up when they are falling behind with their school work.
I can also help with both English SATs and 11+ comprehension and grammar to improve grades and practice for these exams.

I am able to help students improve their vocabulary and understanding so that they can be included during lessons and not feel left behind. I can teach reading and have tutored many students who have been unable to read or write at the level expected for their age. I can show students how to improve their handwriting and presentation.

Tutoring Approach:

Many students struggle with their written and spoken English and as a result have difficulty with all the other subjects. I often help shy or nervous students. I am sympathetic and a good listener. I will try to get to the root of any problems that need attention A block of lessons can often sort out a particular difficulty or give some practise in how to complete tasks.
I have two free slots available on Wednesday at 3.30 pm and 5pm
