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 am married with two adult sons.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been employed in both 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.
Parents often ask me to help students to catch up when they are falling behind with their school work. Other children need more of a challenge because they are coasting at school.
I set homework based on my lessons ,normally from workbooks or creative writing. These consolidate the lesson and build the ability to work independently.
I prepare students for both English SATs and 11+ comprehension and grammar papers .
Students who have been unable to read or write at the level expected for their age improve with one to one tuition.
I can work on handwriting and presentation that is untidy so it looks better and is easier to read.

Tutoring Approach:

II will try to get to the root of any problems that need attention by listening carefully to both parents and children . I will then plan lessons and find the most suitable materials to use. All children learn in different ways and I will do my best to find the right approach for them.
I offer a free assessment and will answer any questions by email .
