I'm Claire, a qualified primary teacher with 20 years teaching experience. I provide high quality private tuition in your home, based on my academic expertise and teaching experience in primary schools, city learning centres and local authority centres.
I have taught in state primary schools since and trained teachers in the state and independent sector since 1993.
As well as providing training and consulting for primary schools, supporting my private tuition clients, I have a private practice as a therapeutic counsellor in Hove, Sussex.
After working as a teacher in primary schools in London, I had two school improvement roles in London local authorites. I moved to Sussex five years ago and now I am teaching, training teachers for Pearson Education and tutoring children privately at their homes after the school day finishes.
I am experienced at teaching Key stage One and Two, and taught Year 6 for many years, so am used to the SAT's process.
Some children need a little more time and support for them to achieve their potential. School classes are large and busy and sometimes it is easy for children to fall behind or struggle with concepts, especially with the new challenging National Curriculum and the higher expectations for children.
I work with individuals and on occasion pairs or small groups, focussing on the child's needs and teaching from a variety of styles to suit the individual. Not every child works best at a desk or computer! (although lots do :)
It's important that learning after school is fun, motivating and meaningful. I make use of a wide range of teaching resources and media, depending on the lesson activity and learning style.
