I am a highly experienced primary school teacher who combines supply work with tutoring. I have had my own tutoring business for 10 years. I am familiar with the new primary syllabus and have prepared children for SATs at both KS1 and KS2. I also coach children for 11+ exams and for private and public school entrance tests. Students that i started at primary level, I have taken through to GCSE Maths and English. I have 4 grown up children of my own
I have taught in both the state and private sectors. In state schools my roles have included Key Stage 1 leader, music leader and maths co-ordinator. I achieved the 'Geography Mark' from the National Geographical Association for my school. In the private sector, I have twice been a Director of Music and also been responsible for the teaching of maths and held responsibility for Year 6 entrance exams. As a Supply teacher you have to be prepared to teach anything at a moment's notice so subject knowledge is everything. I have worked in all types of school in a wide variety of locations.I have a current DBS (security clearance) and in date government training courses.
Each child I teach is an individual. I assess each child and talk to the parents as to their aspirations and how to take learning forward. It is important to take time to get to know the child and how they feel about my input. I try to make them feel at ease so that we can work together as a team. I am happy to set homework if required and it will always be marked.
