Educated to postgraduate level, I am a strong qualified primary school teacher, who achieved 'outstanding' grades in 7 out 8 of the Teachers' Standards. In addition, I have had a track record of above average results in the outstanding schools where I have worked so far across London. Self-motivated and with a real passion for education, I plan my lessons in a well-structured manner in order to inspire my students and to encourage them to become autonomous learners. Keen to learn and to develop professionally, I constantly use my initiative in order to improve my pedagogy and my subject knowledge, so that my teaching boosts my students' attainment and the standards of their schools.
I have constantly sought to broaden my teaching experience in order to support students of different ages and experiences in their learning journeys. Consequently, I currently work as a PPA Cover Teacher in an outstanding school in London where I teach several subjects to classes from Reception up to Year 5. This role has encouraged me to become more flexible and to extend my subject knowledge in order to understand how to help children achieve and exceed the age-related expectations for these year groups. Furthermore, my Year 1 Class Teacher position at an outstanding all-through free school has equipped me with the essential skills in order to transform the learning into a home-school partnership by constantly communicating with parents and modelling key strategies for them in the core subjects. Beside this, my placements in KS1 and KS2 as a Trainee Teacher have strengthened my behaviour management techniques and have given me the opportunity to make a positive contribution to students' learning across the primary phase.
As an educator, I believe that a 'growth mindset' should be at the core of my pedagogy. Hence, I praise and celebrate great learning with my students, but I also teach them to see obstacles as opportunities for personal and academic development. In addition, I consider that any tutee is able to make progress and to achieve, regardless of their social background and circumstances. Consequently, I do my utmost in order to personalise learning for my students, to make the content relevant and engaging for them and to spark their interest and creativity. Moreover, I constantly keep up up-to-date with the most recent educational research by reading specialist academic journals and by participating in professional development courses.
