I am a qualified teacher. I have experience teaching across the primary age range (5-11) and in the last three years I have successfully tutored children up to GCSE level.
I live in the Locks Heath area of Fareham. In my free time I enjoy walking, reading and learning foreign languages.
I have worked as a full time teacher for 17 years. In the last 12 years I have worked in both KS1 and KS2 (5-11age range) and have delivered the full primary curriculum and kept up to date with the latest developments in the programmes of study. I have worked in a range of school settings and have found the experience both rewarding and inspiring. Over the years I have been responsible for the development of a number of subjects, including maths and science. I have also worked as a SENCO, which has given me a greater understanding into the needs of children with SEN and the approaches that can be used to help them catch up with their peers. As a tutor I have successfully supported KS3 children (aged 11-14) in both maths and English. I have taught English as a Foreign Language to adults and children and the majority of my tutees have successfully passed CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and CPE (Cambridge Proficiency in English). I have also tutored maths at GCSE level and my students have made fantastic progress, one started at the equivalent of a D grade and is now achieving As in their mock tests.
I believe that learning should be fun and relevant to the child. Lessons tailored to the learner's individual needs help them to achieve their potential and improve their confidence. I am patient and let the tutees set a pace of the lesson which they are comfortable with. I encourage them to ask questions and guide them to find the solution to a problem by developing their thinking skills and encouraging them to make links with what they already know.
