Personal Description:

I am a highly experienced teacher who is passionate about ensuring that children are learning to the best of their ability, in whatever learning environment they are in. I love watching people of any age learn new things. I love learning myself, so enjoy reading and investigating new ideas. I initially trained as a secondary maths teacher in America, having gained my Bachelor of Arts in mathematics (1985, Summa cum laude). I moved to England and transferred my teaching qualifications through the Overseas Trained Teacher Programme (Sussex University), achieving QTS for KS2 and KS3. I currently work as a Primary SCITT Tutor (Initial Teacher Training-ITT).

Tutoring Experience:

Most of my recent teaching experience is in a primary setting, mainly KS2 (Years 3-6, age 7-11), as a classroom teacher and Phase Learning Leader. I have taught all primary subjects across Years 2-6, with special expertise in SATs preparation for Year 6 and Year 2 under the new National Curriculum. Previously, I have worked as a tutor for all primary subjects as well as KS3 and KS4 maths, with a focus on preparing young people for maths GCSE exams. Although I began my teaching career in the American education system, I have tutored and taught in the UK since the early 1990s, so am fully conversant with the new National Curriculum a well as educational terminology and technical language of British English.

Tutoring Approach:

In my experience, people often learn better if they are enjoying what they are doing. It has always been my goal to make learning as enjoyable as possible and I try to teach in a fun, enthusiastic and relaxing, yet purposeful, way. I firmly believe that people learn best when teaching is targeted at their specific needs and personal learning styles. Another crucial step to successful learning comes from developing a positive relationship between tutor and tutee. Building a learner's confidence is also key to the learner's ability to assimilate new knowledge and practise new skills. As a tutor, I want to ensure that I teach in such a way as to maximise confidence and achievement for those with whom I am working.
