I love working with children and young people and am passionate about education and enabling students to reach their full potential and experience the joy of learning. I particularly love teaching science, a subject that inspired me throughout my own education and led me to study biomedical science at university. I am a trained primary school teacher and tutor mathematics, English and science at key stage 1 and 2, as well as biology up to A level. My husband and I both tutor and run The Hub Coffee House in Manby. We have a spacious tuition centre within the coffee house where we tutor from. Please feel free to pop in any time for a visit.
After graduating with my bachelors degree I spent six months teaching in Kathmandu, Nepal. I taught a number of subjects at primary and secondary level and was able to teach practical science with the students, including conducting a heart dissection with my grade ten students. This experience sparked a love of teaching and when I returned home I went on to study for my primary PGCE at Newcastle University. My teaching course and school placements enabled me to broaden and refine my teaching pedagogy and practice. Since graduating, I have spent three years working with children as a church children's worker and have provided academic tuition for the last six months.
Throughout my teaching I have noticed the way that a student's anxiety towards a particular subject can limit their achievement and so I aim to enable them overcome that obstacle by helping them to lose their fears of learning and building their confidence in their own ability. Learning can be great fun and once a child or young person is able to let go of their fears they begin to thrive in their studies. That is where there is a great benefit in one-to-one Removedtuition because you can offer step by step guidance to the students. My tuition is completely tailored to the needs of the student and therefore every a session is different for each child or young person. I try to make lessons interactive where possible and with my science tuition this has included some practical demonstrations.
