Personal Description:

I graduated from Liverpool Hope University in 1992 with a B.Ed (HONS) degree in Education and Music. I have been teaching for 24 years in the primary sector providing children with individual need teaching programmes. I have also conducted a successful school choir which has taken part in many events including 'Songs of Praise' and the M.E.N. Arena. I have taught privately for many years on a one to one basis preparing children for their SATS and also in music grades through the ABRSM.
I totally love teaching, being with the children, watching them flourish both academically and individually. Teaching has to be stimulating, creative and fun. Children learn best in a calm, bright, relaxed environment. I cater for each and every child's individual needs and work also along side the parents to help them support their children at home.
I am a highly motivated, enthusiastic, hardworking, trustworthy and conscientious professional who possesses excellent interpersonal and communication skills. I am adaptable, flexible and committed to providing the highest possible standards of care and service.

Tutoring Experience:

19 years primary classroom teaching in a large successful primary school.
5 years running my own business 'A Star Plus Tuition '
I have supported a GCSE student with severe dyslexia difficulties through a Home Schooling scheme in GCSE Maths, English, Music and Human Biology with fantastic results.
I also have tutored 2 hours a week (in school time) a dyslexic student who is highly functioning at the top end of the spectrum. The student was released the 2 hours a week by the school for 1:1 tuition with myself. This worked a treat and the student gained a scholarship for 11+ education.
Dyslexia trained.
One to one music tuition from beginner to advanced level.
One to one tuition in English and Maths preparing students for SATS.
One to one tuition in teaching reading to those who need that little bit of extra support.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching happens naturally, I approach tutoring in a calm, sensitive manner. Listening to children is of upmost importance. From listening I gauge where the student is at and prepare individual need lessons. I feel it is very important to build a teacher, pupil, parent structure so this benefits the child. Teaching has to be stimulating, progressive and fun. If a child feels secure, safe and at ease learning will take place much easier and quicker.
